    The spoon appears to be a hotly contested argument amongst minimalist. I currently carry a spoon. I am looking for ways to make the spoon obsolete. This could be as revolutionary as “leverage” or “the wheel”. We will probably need to work together on this one.

    Steak just went on the fire.

    Of coarse it may need seasoning just like coffee. :photog

    How do you know if someone is a vegan minimalist? Don't worry they'll tell you.

    This is my setup (2 litre bottle for scale):

    It looks like your package is smaller than mine. :deal

    What gear are you using? Because I'd like to fit all mine into one compression sack too.

    That pad looks large. Check out Klymit Static V. I’ve got a few other tips that I can pass along when I get a chance.

    Forks on their way to happy customers!

    I love seeing places I've been. I've had breakfast and gotten gas in Green River, UT. So close to Dead Horse Point. Can't get enough desert.

    However, this thread will probably go dormant for a bit as this ride takes place. I generally like to spin yarns about the ride after it’s done.

    Here’s a little addendum though. I was honored when legendary inmate and all around magnate @rtwpaul ask to do an interview with me. It appears that I am now in the “who’s who” of inmates! :lol3

    I was a little more serious and not so cynical in the peace trying not to be an a-hole: Joe Moto Interview

    Day 7 is in the books. EXCELLENT ride in progress. Heading into a town to ship a couple Adjustaforks and get some grub for tonight. Looking like 5 more days of riding ahead.
