Darn Donnie,
I'm sad to say I'm only at 27,700 on my '00 KLR. But, heading for Arkansas this morning on it and leaving the Bandit at home.

Hi Donnie. I'm late to the party, but I'm subscribed and caught up. Thanks so much for another wonderful RR. You're an inspiration and you've really got me dreaming about retirement! (Need to start learning Spanish now!) Also, thank you for being such a great ambassador during your travels. I think it's safe to say that you shatter the ugly American stereotype.
Thanks to all of your gracious hosts too. Amazing how people open up their lives and homes to you.

Dave

Well, it looks like Donnie is now just passing the San Antonio Texas area, on the home stretch. I guess he survived Mexico and points to the south.

Thanks for coming along! Yes, the people have been great! The more you travel, the more the trip is about the people you encounter.
