Wink A Fist Full of Costa Rica

March 11-22nd

Costa Rica, The Piece in the Middle.......








I finished the route today (took me a couple months of perusing through guide books, 4 different maps and GPS crap).

Also picked up some gear, meds and meals (if you call protein bars meals)

I will be bringing a set of knobbie tires and tubes with me as "checked baggage" which I'll install onto

the moto upon arrival at Thorsten's shop around 12:00 on Friday.

Ill then head SE into the cloud forest for some camping, then pick up the jungle trails early in the morning.

still escaping solo.

should be a mind bender.




Ill leave you guys with a few......

Just got back from CR two days ago. No bike was with the wifey. With the route you have I think you will def. see just about everything and then some. Good luck friend!

Look forward to hearing more about this trip. CR is one of my retirement choices.
