At age 14 I traveled with my parents pulling an 18' SOB from northern NY to the Seattle World's Fair and back.
Upon returning I was so enamoured with the idea of going West again, I had a classmate and fellow Boy Scout talked into biking out with me the following summer.
We planned to parallel conjoin 2 bikes to make a "pick-up truck" to haul our gear.
Needless to say, cooler heads (read: parents) prevailed and it never happened.
These aren't the droids you're looking for.
You can go about your business.
