  • Rule 8 hint: as a bicyclist, I wear clothing that is comfortable on a bike, but may look strange to non-cyclists. (Much like golf clothing, only tighter.)

    When you walk into a diner in a small town or into the darkness of a neighborhood bar and you notice that everyone has quit talking and is looking at you, your odds of survival (and of having someone pick up your tab) are increased if you look around the room and say in a loud voice, "Y'all sure dress funny around here."

  • Rule 12 amplification: that same advice was given to me by a trucker when we told him on the CB that we were headed through Kansas.

    He had one other suggestion: always check your speedometer before opening the door and stepping out. Since everything in KS looks the same, you could be going 80 mph and not know it.
