I'm really tempted to buy a fun schwinn trike or fold up trike, since I don't want to mess up my daily commute bike by subjecting it to the desert. If I found one on CL I'd be stoked!

I'm visualizing the theme with a catapillar's transformation into a butterfly... I think that's a pretty straightforward visualization of a rite of passage, especially from childhood into adulthood. I call it "Chrysalis."

You can also just camp on your own.
