The plan is to bike away from Playa Hermosa, Veracruz, Mexico this Monday, (6 days and counting), we will be Canada bound but not before I lose myself in some US dumpsters! My last nights in Veracruz are filled with dreams of American dumpsters, oh the expired food we will eat. Our panniers are looking a little less stuffed than the last time we departed on a cross continental tour. I think we are getting better at this that or I have forgotten something.
So changes this time are that we are minus a trailer and haven't quite figured out what we will use for a tent. We still have our Eureka Midori 3 tent which is still waterproof and quite a nice touring tent for our group of 2.5 but all of the poles are snapped. We are currently seeking partnerships with makers or sellers of tents and light weight warm (we estimate to arrive in Canada by December Brrr) sleeping bags. 4 pairs of bikes shoes have been shredded during our last 6000kms so we will try to replace them when we find the right opportunity. We also would like to find a sponsor for lightweight, durable, waterproof cameras so we can bring this tour to your computer or mobile device. If you know of a company that could benefit from the publicity and product testing that we offer please let us know.
We are very excited with our second partnership with our favorite bike shop in the whole world, Huntington Cycle and Sport in Huntington West Virginia. They have been the only bike store that has been able to provide us with parts, products and friendship in every corner of North America. Their mechanics are honest, knowledgeable and just nice guys! Why don't you check out their website at http://www.huntingtoncycleandsport.com/ or better yet spend some of your money there!
Hoping that you are living your dreams. I know I will be as soon as we find a WinDixie haha. Much love! Hannah
