Bio: I am Bikerearl and I am 83 years old (as of July,31, 2009), retired military, and have been bicycle touring since 1993. I have criscrossed this great country of ours several times and have toured New Zealand. I did this alone and self suported, on both North & South Islands as well as England, Wales & Ireland, and parts of Canada. Touring in an organized tour does not interest me. I suppose its okay for those who like that sort of thing, but I'm independent enough want to stop when I want or continue when it pleases me. I guess I'd rather make my own descisions and my own mistakes, thinking I don't really need a leader. Sometimes, I travel with others, but with no more than one or two others. The fewer, the better. Traveling alone, the opportunities to meet others in intimate ways, is best when alone and decreases dramatically with each additional person. I'm also interested in history, which is why this summer, I toured following the Lewis & Clark Trail. Earl Norman
