I finished my rode report and it is a good effort as a newbie both in adventure riding as well as adventure writing. I followed this thread and have read many reports. My photography could never compete with Dave's but my $100 dollar camera did OK. I hope it turns out well, it does have a tragic sort of ending. I share myself, exposed and raw I reckon.
Take a look and let me know what you all think. Comments on the rode report re very welcome. It was a lot of work to do it sort of proper.
Thanks - ATEAM
