Lowe Pro Camera Bag and Ortlieb Panniers

My new ride, a Surly ECR and Jessica’s trailer.


Here is a preliminary list of the gear Deborah and I will be using for our ride down the Oregon Coast in August of this year. I’m sure there will be some minor changes as we get closer to launch.



  • Bicycle: Surly ECR 29+ Touring Bike
  • Trailer: Burley D’Lite (older model) with seat taken out for Jessica to ride in.

Longway is the trail name for Tim Todd and is quite fitting due to the fact that every aspect of his life consist of taking the longest route and time to arrive. For Longway the journey is the destination.
