How can you pack all the camping gear and clothing needed for two people on a motorcycle? At first, it may seem impossible but it is easier than you think if you do your homework. You must learn how to acquire the right gear, how to pack it, and how to use it at your campsite. Lightweight Camping for Motorcycle Travel provides the information and suggestions you will need to buy the right clothing, tents, sleeping bags, tools, lights, cookware, and other camping gear. It describes how to set up comfortable campsites, use ropes and knots, cook great tasting meals, stay dry in stormy weather, stay warm on cool nights, and prolong the life of your gear. Once you take a few trips and master the necessary skills, you will enjoy many pleasures you could never experience in an expensive motel room. You will enjoy breathing fresh air and smelling food cooking at the campground. You will enjoy walking on scenic trails and relaxing at your campsite. In the evening, you will enjoy sitting by a warm campfire, listening to an owl, and occasionally hearing a gentle rain falling on your tent.

Viewing transportation through the lens of current social, economic, and policy aspects, this four-volume reference work explores the topic of transportation across multiple disciplines within the social sciences and related areas, including geography, public policy, business, and economics. The book’s articles, all written by experts in the field, seek to answer such questions as: What has been the legacy, not just economically but politically and socially as well, of President Eisenhower’s modern interstate highway system in America? With that system and the infrastructure that supports it now in a state of decline and decay, what’s the best path for the future at a time of enormous fiscal constraints? Should California politicians plunge ahead with plans for a high-speed rail that every expert says—despite the allure—will go largely unused and will never pay back the massive investment while at this very moment potholes go unfilled all across the state? What path is best for emerging countries to keep pace with dramatic economic growth for their part? What are the social and financial costs of gridlock in our cities? Features: Approximately 675 signed articles authored by prominent scholars are arranged in A-to-Z fashion and conclude with Further Readings and cross references. A Chronology helps readers put individual events into historical context; a Reader’s Guide organizes entries by broad topical or thematic areas; a detailed index helps users quickly locate entries of most immediate interest; and a Resource Guide provides a list of journals, books, and associations and their websites. While articles were written to avoid jargon as much as possible, a Glossary provides quick definitions of technical terms. To ensure full, well-rounded coverage of the field, the General Editor with expertise in urban planning, public policy, and the environment worked alongside a Consulting Editor with a background in Civil Engineering. The index, Reader’s Guide, and cross references combine for thorough search-and-browse capabilities in the electronic edition. Available in both print and electronic formats, Encyclopedia of Transportation is an ideal reference for libraries and those who want to explore the issues that surround transportation in the United States and around the world.
