    I like the idea of one of the drawings for joining the collective being a print of the World map.
    Would also love to buy prints of some of the gorgeous photos that have been in Bunyan Velo and will surely be in the Bikepacking Journal.
    Just a thought for additional funding for all of yall’s initiatives.
