Liberal, Kansas

I don't recall the name of the dealer, but within 200 miles of this outpost the terrain and type of trails changes and a decent knobby would be helpful. It shouldn't be that difficult to google bike...

I used to do the same thing back in the day, but with a bicycle, and I kept it in my sleeper, not the trailer. Our loads were usually sealed. If you're ever in or around Sioux City, Iowa let me...

Why don't you Nuts start your own way-off-road tour company? I suspect there are enough like-minded individuals out here that would sign up and make it worth your while.
