My Locale South Australia
About Me Into Bushwalking in remote areas in Australia. Have completed alot of walks in Southern Australia, especially in the Flinders Ranges, but also some decent trips in Victoria, Tasmania, and Central Australia.

I also spend a lot of time in the field for work (arid areas) and am an avid Scouter!

Oh yeah, and I'm into cycling and photography too.

Re: Re: My First Bicycle Tour
Looks like his rack and panniers sit a fair way back, with the panniers starting around the hub. I'd have no trouble myself with heel clip on the panniers in that situation, and I'm US9.5 s...

Driducks under pack wear
Just wondering how driducks hold up to long term usage underneath a pack? I'm guessing those areas wear out faster? Also, which particular driducks models do people use? Looking at the frogg...

My thoughts from the weekend
