Now that I look at the larger context of your maps again, Jim, I realize I must have gone up the nearby road, west of your cycle path, parallel to the lake, a long, long time ago; we tested the top speed of the first pony cars on the salt, and on an off day went to listen to a choir, and in those days of paper maps had a brain flash: we'll drive around the lake. We didn't manage that of course because the model reading the map thought contour lines were roads, but we met some interesting people in the places we got lost before hunger drove us to give up and turn around in search of a restaurant.

ha, when we were first planning to move out here, my wife was talking about driving around the lake. I think by now she realizes the impracticality of that idea! I must say though, Andre - your curriculum vitae is endlessly amazing!

A couple of my local cycling friends got out into that country - something in the direction of a Danneaux-scale expedition! Starts on page 3: http://www.cyclingutah.com/march/Cycling-West-March-2017-Issue.pdf

We recently spent two weeks riding along Australia's Murray River.

Nice photos, Mike. I enjoyed reading about your trip.

I like how Mary referred to the Thorn Mercury as a "half bike". (Context: Mike and Mary did the tour on a tandem.)
