Book Review by Bill Poindexter
Panniers & Peanut Butter by Laura Crawford and Russ Roca
“We have a love-hate relationship with Peanut Butter.”
The first sentence of this fantastic book sets the fun mood for the reader.
They keep it simple, only sharing information about the equipment they are using, how it works for them, and what they like best.
They added some information I have never seen in other books about bicycle touring. A section on their Porch, fun. A surprisingly fascinating section on tying knots with a link to videos on how to tie knots, off beat and extremely helpful. The Office, answers the question what equipment is needed to document the tour while on it.
Quotes, in between chapters, from a relevant past articles on their blog add flavor, my favorite, was the first, “The Great Fear.”
The book can be purchased from their site at, http://www.pathlesspedaled.com/.
