Rick.... Mountain bikes man. I have the bikes in case my jeep wont be use full to me. I plan on building trailers to attach to the bikes to pull either my kids, and other stuff like the bags and dogs. lol. Theres plans online you can follow to build really dope ones. This goes back to me talking about the bags needing to be close to the body incase your on a bike. CHECK OUT THIS LINK ---> WELDED BIKE TRAILER <---- wicked cool and something I need to build over the winter for the bikes. I know riding a bike with a 60pound bag would suck.

I had always toyed with the idea of using a canoe to float down river ifpush came to shove... But its too impractical at the moment. Too many family members to take care of. But if i was solo, then hell yes i woulduse a canoe or Scanoe or raft... Hell... Might even be fun.

One thing to consider with bikes are the motorized recumbents. They are very comfortable, sit lower to the ground, and give a lot of options on how you run them. We have a two wheel Lightfoot motorized recumbent as well as a very heavy duty Lightfoot recumbent trike that also has a motor on it. The motor gives you the option of running totally quiet just pedalling or running with the motor as an assist on hills and such or even just running with the motor. The two wheel flies, I know I've hit 40 on the flat with the engine and pedal power and the trike is a brute that tops out at about 30 on the flat but we can carry well over 150 pounds of gear on it or pull a trailer. It's hard to figure out the average MPG because it varies between the bikes and the riders (some pedal more than others) but the two wheeler has averaged around 275 mpg for me so far and the trike is closer to 225. Even with the motor running it is surprisingly quiet.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
