Way back on 4/29 Radioman said:

"In Washington DC I had some amazing things happen while Advocating to End Alzheimer's Disease. It is not totally clear how this will go, but is worth me mentioning as I move into the new part of my Adventure going to India!"

then the next picture down (on a beach) might be the same foot?
Hint, there was also space shuttles in the same post I think.

See Radioman, We do read ALL your posts .

PS: thanks for the ride

Love life is tough on guys like us my typical quote after third date .. "But lets be clear, My life is working from a motorcycle and soon you will find me back in State X, Y, and Z to continue riding to TDF and beyond." They tough it out for Three months and two weekend visits to my current locations...Skype don't cut it. Must be why my married ride mates... Curse me out and then give me a high five. Ride on Radio Man ... Ride on...

One of the greatest parts of my sharing my journey on ADV Rider and my Blog is that I have met, and interacted with many wonderful people.

And as my adventure goes....... Conor and I met online and then had the pleasure of crossing paths in Central and South America!

Here is his Blog, but his is a bot behind at the moment.....

https://twowheeledtravels.wordpress.com/

He happened to check my RR and see that I was in south Florida..... He is also here after shipping his bike to Miami from South America. Small world.

So we talked and worked out the way to meet up for a meal in Key Largo. Spotted him as we were riding through town, and pulled along side of him on the road. Wanted to shock him with some hand gestures or provocative poses, but he figured out it was us right away



How can this be? What? we are now back in the USA?

We had lunch and some dessert while catching up on our riding since we last spoke in Colombia! Lots of Adventure stories to share for sure!



Here in sunny Florida!!



Conor had to get behind the wheel of the S4 to get the feel of a fast car.....



We ended up staying at a hotel on the beach ..... Conors room had a view of the dumpster and side yard



Just missing the prices of lodging in Mexico, Central America and South America





But there was some cool green Iguanas hanging about!



We signed up for a day of snorkeling while Conor made sure to get up at the Crack of 11 so he could continue riding north.

Had to say goodbye with a note on his bike....



and reply





Great to see you Conor!! Until we meet again!!

The rest of the week was spent enjoying the area, some projects, catching up baking pies and watching the sun Rise











Former Jr High coach posted this on my FB page....



Decided it needed some updates of the course of the week....





and the final one on 4th of July.



With all the Pies.... Starting to wonder if I have been eating too much Pie?




Life is good !! Will be flying back to Portland Tomorrow ...... Spend a week with my friend sightseeing, then catching up with friends, riding my Big GS a bit before the return to Quito in August!!

Great post Mark! nice to see Conor again, and continually marvelling at ALL the pie!

I have a good friend in Cheyenne, Wyoming... She likes to cook and bake... If you go hungry around her house you have nobody to blame but yourself...

Safe travels back to the PNW... I flew from South Carolina last weekend and am still trying to get my legs straight!
Shiny side up! Ride Radioman Ride!

Yeah, but it was a view of the VIP guest dumpster and side yard. Only the best for me

Hey Mark, glad you are in the states for a bit. I know you will be headed back south soon, I will be up in the PNW 8-14 thru 8-17. We will be staying on the coast @ Kalaloch Campgrounds right on the beach, then I drop the Mrs off at the airport and she flies back. Then I go on north to Newhalem and camp there for the nite. I will work my way back down to Texas through Yellowstone. Just wanted to let you know I have enjoyed your travels greatly.
Jack
