archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

Oh the joy!

For those who have moved beyond paper books, and now prefer to read on a computerized screen, The Overland Triker has been kindlized. By the way, the heavy rains and high winds yet continue here, so if you are contemplating an Oregon coast trike jaunt, hold off for a while! The few cyclists I’ve seen out so far are getting slammed. Not the best weather for pitching a tent. Late summer and early fall are the preferred times.

  2. Hey, thank YOU Lloyd for supporting this free floating spirit so that I can continue to live my own way, having stepped off the grid of normal existence (at least in my mind, or, more succinctly, what’s left of it). You realize of course, that reading such books as this one only serve to awaken your adventurous spirit, a call for the distant places of the realm, and soon you’ll have to yield to temptation and hit the road yourself! Ya’ just gotta’ do one overland ride each summer, even if it’s only for a week. Then, you’ll be back for sure. Later.

  3. Excellent book, Steve! I’m gonna move to McMinnville and trike over to Joseph to see Dan Price!

  4. I really like the McMinnville area! Have you been to the Evergreen air and space museum? If you are going to trike over to Dan’s place, best give him a call first. He spends part of each year in Hawaii working in a surf shop, surfing, and triking, so he could be away. He has been coming back to Joseph for the summers. That would be a fun trike ride, heading east through the state. I have been wishing to do Oregon’s interior in the future sometime, and that day is probably getting closer. When are you moving?

  5. I spent two weeks exploring Oregon two years ago. McMinnville appealed to me (Dragging the Gut?) as a place to live. I’ve seen the Spruce Goose.

    Moving will be staged for orientation and acclimatization;one month this summer, one month in this winter. Final move depends on family responsibilities.

    I’m 69 years old with an arthritic left hip;looking forward to triking into my 70s.
