Princess and The Toad - A Live (sorta) Ride Report from Costa Rica
Costa Rica here we come !!!
Well after about 5 minutes discussion and a 3 month wait. We packed our gear last night and head out this morning via Spirit Airlines to do some riding in Costa Rica.
Fully utilizing the "carry on" approach
Day 1 - "Gettin There"
Saturday, Jan 16 2010
Being knee deep in snow and only having 10 days off work, we opted to use the airport as our gateway to Latin America
We left Detroit this morning at "0 dark thirty" and after a plane change in Ft Lauderdale we arrived this afternoon in San Jose, Costa Rica. After an easy pass thru customs we jumped in a cab and headed off to our hotel for the night.

View from the cab (tomorrow we head into those mountains)
We had a little time to kill before picking up our bikes tomorrow from "Wild Rider" so we took a little walk around SJ... crossing the Pan American for the first time.. by foot.. not exactly as I imagined it.. but challenging to say the least.
We decided to head over to Wild Rider (cuz we is getting anxoius)
