A site with interesting stuff called Dornob today has a realllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly low tech version of and rv. You really have to want to go simple for this. Posted Image

From Dornob There are more pictures on the site with it opened up and then set up for sleeping. Pretty cool actually, but I need more horsepower than my own two legs can give me.

Actually I did a tour a couple years ago on bike with a trailer from Akron, Ohio to Washington DC on a bicycle. Here is a link. Mike2DC Also here is a tour journal of a tour from the Central Valley of California to the Central Coast and down to Los Angeles. (I had a break down in LA, the plan is to go to St. Augustine, Florida if I get back to the trip at some point before I am 70.)

Here is the rig I used. When not biking, the bike and trailer frame/wheels fold up into the suitcase/trailer body and my gear that is in the trailer/suitcase goes in a duffle bag and I can travel on a plane or train or whatever.

Back when I was a sophomore in college in 1999 I rode across the country with BOB trailer attached to a late 70s fuji roadbike. Similar set up to the pics already posted. I camped on blm land, church properties, and under overpasses. It was an overwhelming experience, especially doing it solo, but gave me a good taste of what what I want to go back to see when we start full timing in July!

Oh and I remember reading about a guy riding across the country at the same time pulling a 1000 lb trailer to raise money and to train for the Olympics. Made me feel puny with my 60 lb trailer!

Some years back we met a couple from Japan riding a tandem bike through Alaska. They camped out each night. Bears and all. What really amazed us was the fact that she had a baby on her back!!!

But for those who really want to be inspired, this guy who wrote this journal of a bike ride over at CrazyGuyOnABike.com was 82 years old when he completed an unsupported cross country ride from Sacramento, CA to St. Augustine, Florida.
