Oh that's great! I'm going to have to try that.

Thats great, with a small amount of gunpowder you could turn your baguette transporter into a baguette launcher for those occasions where defensive riding is required!

Doug said...

My you have big baguettes in New Zealand!

Doug:
I quickly bungied-on the tubes I had lying around. Prototype two will have cut down tubes as I had to do a wheelie in my garage to get the 2nd one out ;-)

Hey, we all have Pugsley icons now.

I like Dan's idea!

Perhaps you should attempt to carry some flour, a little yeast, and a pinch of salt.

Have you noticed that the word verification thingy on blogger is getting longer (or is it just when when baguettes are mentioned)?

I'm not much of a baker but I do do a mean naan bread on the BBQ.

The word verification is a pain but I'm a bit paranoid about spam and such so I'll leave it on there for now. Thanks for commenting anyway and I'm about to have a read through your commuting blog. I've just got to find out what the Tri-Cities are...

Marla...O.A.F. with altitude said...

Tri-Cities are Johnson City, Bristol and Kingsport in Tennessee, I think. My parents used to live in and around Johnson City. Small world, eh?

Jeff Moser said...

Ingenious! You will never be restricted to one single bakery with tubes that length!

Michael Meiser said...

Buy shorter baguetts!?

Or simply ... cut them?

:)

Just joking... proceed with all earnst and awesomeness.
