Don't worry, /fa/ says it's ok for men to wear skirts so you're in the clear anon.

You got a nice basement at your mom's place? You fly in whatever equipment your airline chooses to put you in for that flight, and sometimes they swap them at the last minute (occasionally almost literally). Some suck more than others.
You only get out of this if you own your own plane. Then you can choose whatever you want.

Guys, please help me figure out the ultimate bike for a truck driver.
I never know what city I will be in from day to day and truckstops are often on the edge of town.

I need to sometimes travel on rough terrain and speed is not really a factor.

If I keep the bike outside the cab like pic related it will get pretty dirty and caked in salt in winter.

If I keep in inside the cab I needs to no have any greasy parts to make a mess and the wheels should come off easily.

Extra points for cool/quirky since I lead a solitary life and an conversation starter...

I cant believe I am about to advise this but, walmart bike that you can throw away after 6 months to a year. Buy it cheap, rebuild it on your own because they were probably built like shit. Tbh if you do the mechanical work yourself and dont try to jump or anything blatantly irresponsible with it, then it should hold up. Just get some decent tubes, maybe slime and liners. It will save you money in the long run. You could actually clean the grease out of all the bearings and then just spray the hell out of it with WD-40 all the time to slow the rust down.. and since its only...

How do people who row across seas or oceans survive in massive storms?

I've been fantasizing about going on a holiday with friends by rowing along Europe's coast, from the UK.

But I have no clue how anyone manages to travel in small vessels and deal with storms. I've heard stories about people rowing across the Atlantic for 2 months and living through hurricanes. How? Is it enough to turn the bow to face the waves and hope for the best? I've also heard of cases where a single wave hitting the side of the boat flips it over. Is it just a game...

Here is an example of a boat used for transatlantic crossing.
You hear those stories about small boats surviving hurricanes because they're miracles.

Back before we had the technology we do now, it wasn't uncommon for sailors to leave port and never return. And that was with ships designed for the trips.
Rowing across the ocean is a big deal in and of itself. There is considerable amount of planning involved, not the least of which is weather forecasting. You're not going to be able to do much at all once the seas reach a certain state.

Around land especially, you'd have to be cautious of currents that would probably outpace a rower.

Typically the period of the waves increases along with the height, so you're not facing a wall of water, it's more of a gentle climb than you'd imagine.

Ship's liferafts are inflatable, so pretty well generally. An open dinghy not so much. It would highly depend on design of the boat and the sea state.

The plank idea is terrible, but I don't want to explain ship construction and stability.

This is happening in my area, a lot of people are getting upset about the transportation of oil in trains and pipelines.
Few people understand that without the pipeline, they'll be shipping it in lorries instead.

Any wisdom from the peanut gallery that is /n/?

The problem isn't the trains, it's the oil, most of which goes to feed the cager menace.

We should be using it far more carefully, reserving it for running the actual trains, emergency vehicles, delivery vehicles, etc.

Most people should live in concentrated cities and ride bicycles or trains for maximum energy efficiency. Personal vehicles should be banned and anyone advocating for their use stuffed into redbird cars and converted into environmentally sound coral reefs.

t. a civilized person
1. There have been several incidents in the past few years of oil tanker cars exploding.
2. A pipeline is controversial because it involves land ownership and eminent domain rules.


3. There's a general sense that anything that makes getting oil to market faster is a step in the wrong direction - ideally the oil should stay in the ground.

If so many passenger routes still survive, where would you recommend for rail tourism?
Wherever there is a railway passenger traffic there. Up to freight locomotive old walking with a carriage in the Russian hinterland.
I advise you to ride on the train Moscow - Vladivostok and Moscow - Beijing. You can also ride between the two cities by high-speed train Russia - St. Petersburg and Moscow, there is a road along a mountain snowy Finland (St. Petersburg - Helsinki).
However, recall where there is the railway, there are also passenger trains.

3 There is a picture of the upper station hidden somewhere on the internet but I've failed to find it thus far.
4 last picture. It was almost 3km in length and supported by only two towers as it climbed from the side of BC Highway 5 up to the ridge of Mt. Jarvis. The cabin is supported by two track cables and hauled up with a single continuous loop drive line. The large checkered tower at the base station housed the massive counterweights to maintain tension of the track cables. The base station still exists today however all the cable, support towers and upper station have been demolished and removed.

Post news, pictures, videos of trams or light rail.

This is going to be your sad truth right here.

But if you want something that is quite easy to carry, but you still get to lock your bike onto something then a solid frame lock like pic related would do the job. Although this kind of lock does not offer best security, because they oftem times are either easy to pick or have some sort of flaw that makes them exploitable for example shimming.
