A rare insight into Fletch maintaining fitness on his RTW. When he can fit through this fence he will be ready to continue riding without fear of breaking his suspension again.

Fackers... I tell you...


I was out dirt biking yesterday in -14 celcius (6.8F).



I did have steak afterwards though. I don't think it could compare to where you guys are, but I work with what I have.

How does he feel about it?

That's another big step. Curious how he's handling it. There's still stress during travels. It's a different stress though.

He is crying in the corner, extremely scared, and has no Idea what he is supposed to do with out his bike, so he began drinking at 10:30am this morning (not kidding about the drinking thing, although I did join him on that adventure..)
In all seriousness he is super stoked and ready for he next chapter; although he is shitting his pants about getting back into the whole working world, but he has no choice since he is beyond broke and living in debt till he gets to NZ..
He says Saludos!!!

I think he was worrying a bit about that even when I was riding with him! He talked about going broke before working again.

I imagine he'll find something. I bet working abroad is more fun then working at home, because things are new and different.

Curious if you guys have thought of any "money makers" on your travels. I'd love to go a different direction in my life. Maybe want to discuss that privately. Can't let the cat out of the bag.. haha.

sORRY GUYS WILL CATCH UP TODAY.. ONE MONTH OF SLACKING

DAY-426-438
1/1-13/2013
Still playing the waiting game, parts made it as of the 7th but are stuck in Customs, my friend’s friend who works in customs is searching for them. That’s all I know...
Woke up on New Year’s Day to finding my shoes on the roof?? Not too sure about that one... haha another lazy day.
Been working on my list of things I want to get rid of and things I want to pick up when I pass through LA (when ever that might be…Hahaha).
Trying to get a few things sorted out with my registration and also working on my Carnet for Australia.
I caught my eye on another RR and checked it out and it is Fritz RR Porkandbeans…. I wrote him and we met up for a few beers and hung out talking about his plans and where I had been. I was able to meet up with him and another ADVRIDER Bear who is doing six months around SA and was able to go over maps with them pointing out my favorite riding and camping areas. Also went over different suggestions to finding places to sleep and hide the bike, police, borders, and so on. Super nice guys and hope to run into Bear down in Patagonia, don’t think I will see Fritz again since he is headed toward BSAS and Brazil.
I had to make a quick run to the dentist, just for a checkup and cleaning. Which for the record I hate hate hate the dentist, but it was fine, quick, and cheap.
A few of us headed to a Gringo Bar called California to watch the Broncos and Ravens, my Couchsurfer friends a Maida, Nati, and their friends Connie and Maca joined us. Sadly that was a terrible game on Broncos and we lost, Zach and I kicked through 7 pitchers or so of some pretty good beer as well as a few Piscola’s. We were sitting at the table when one of the owners came out and told me I looked like some linebacker and then asked what I was drinking. He sat down and we had a few more Piscola’s with him then we went next door to his club where he had Champagne waiting for us. We danced for a few hours (if you know me you then you know I can’t and don’t dance) so we will call it the “Two step whiskey stumble”. Stumbled home around 4am and Ivan (my good friend and boss) was up hanging out with two other guest and then we watched a movie and passed out. Sunday was mellow day of lying around and working throughout the day.
Two fellow Advrider’s who have been keeping tabs on my adventure are doing their own ride for their honeymoon from California on ‘07KLR’s Serafina and Aren. Good people and luckily my boss let me give them a little bit of a deal a dollar off a night. We hung out having a few beers and some rum trading stories and experience. I truly love sitting with other riders trading stories after stories, there is just something special about it to me. They headed out the next day heading south to Patagonia.

DAY 439-443
1/14/-18/2013
Going to be honest I cannot wait until my bike is ready mainly because over the past 1.5 months of working here I think I have taken 10 years of life from my liver… Man do we drink here, it is insane the amount of alcohol you end up drinking while you are living and working at a hostel…. Haha Does not help that my boss loves Bourbon and well I do to; so were best friends. Haha Don’t get me wrong no regrets it has been an incredible time and experience.
Went out to dinner with my new friend Maca for Sushi which was very nice and saw a new area of Santiago which I had not been too. She works for a high end resort in San Pedro, like $400+ a night to stay. It was an awesome night.
Nick Soi showed up which you may remember me writing about as well as maybe know him from his blog www.roadtriprambling.tumblr.com He is doing a RTW on a DR650, I met him in Panama, then hungout and rode bikes in Colombia, Bolivia, and now Chile. He came and stayed at the hostel Ventana Sur Hostel, Side not if you are passing through Santiago shoot the owner Ivan an email, make a reservation, tell him you’re on a motorcycle, and he will give you a discount as well as safe parking/ work space. Everything you need at this place, pool, kitchen, comfy beds, hot showers, good location, safe parking, place you can work and clean your bikes before you ship or ride elsewhere. He is super friendly guy and will go out of the way to help you.

SORRY FOR SLACKING OFF SO MUCH SINCE BEEN HERE.. HAHA

Wicked Dakar 2013

DAY 444-445
1/19-20/2013
DAKAR 2013….
Nick, Zach, and I headed to the Finish line to check out the bikes coming into Santiago. We arrived a bit too early so we went to have some Pollo and Cervesa’s while we waited. Long story short, we waited a very long time in the sun until the bikes finally showed up but I think over all was well worth it. Did we get that close to the riders..No... Were we able to talk with a few riders yes!! Jonny Campbell (Honda Factory rider, American, Baja 1000 Legend) and Bret Cummings (badass privateer from South Africa).
Tried to go to bed early since I will be waking up early and that did not work out for me.. Hahaha
Got up a bit groggy but early enough and headed for the course. Nick and I walked around for just over 5hrs watching the guys ride by on their way to or from the Podium. There were these two guys on Kawi’s that really stand out, everyone was passing slowly and waving to everyone or just riding through with their heads down. These two guys come down the straight away up on one while the other is bouncing off the curbs, jumping into the grass, sliding tires, and just having a good time.. The podium was a bit disappointing thought we would be able to get close to see all of the action but that was not the case, the closest you could get was almost a full block away without a wrist bracelet. In all and all it was a lot of fun to see these guys facial expression that just shouted phew it is over and I accomplished the Dakar Rally.
Over all it was awesome to see and experience, but I will say the best way is if you could catch a stage or the rest day to get close to the action.

WAITING FOR THE DAKAR RIDERS TO ENTER INTO SANTIAGO

DAKAR!!!

CHASE VEHICLES, UGH YES PLEASE
