I read this morning on the warmshowers.org facebook page that there is a discussion going on weather or not to add pay-to-stay and campgrounds to the map. I personally think it is a bad idea but that is not what this post is really about. What caught my attention is that there are cyclo-tourists looking for campgrounds. Hannah and I might be a bit more radical than other cyclo-tourists but consider the following: Since leaving Toronto in 2012 and biking all the way we did, we only paid a handful of times for a place to stay and these were never, ever, campgrounds.
Sometimes when we travel we get the chance to help out some people with the thing everybody loves most. Physically intense manual labour. Some examples of more or less backbreaking forms of work we had the pleasure of doing this last half year displayed below.
Below some pictures from the last leg of our journey in the United states.
