For the past week, Erik and Sofia have been staying with me here in Austin. Originally from Göteborg, Sweden, they’re going to be receiving an eye-opening dose of Americana on the road. This morning they departed on what they’ve come to call, The Great Escape: 10 months on the road throughout the western United States. To help spread the love of touring, Erik designed these patches, which can be picked up on their site. Never one to turn down a nice patch, I picked a few up. They’ll be sending them out while on the road, at various towns. I’m into that.
I’ve got more photos of their touring rigs on the way (including more photos of these panniers Erik designed), but for now, check out their blog, The Great Escape!
