Oil return pipe split and nearly pumped our sump dry so we are replacing both the return and feed pipes .... those plus a number of other bits and pieces that have crapped out.

Hopefully there will be an end to the bigger stuff we will have a reasonable run soon, yesterdays oil change was good new so pretty happy about that

We won't have any problems for at least three weeks now

Playa del Carmen and Cuba are a couple of the nicest beach areas. Normally at this time of the year I would be laying on one of those beaches so very envious.

Hope the bike troubles start to subside. Enjoy Cuba, it is a beautiful place with beautiful people.

Ditto, again. My wife said 'No one can take pictures of sunsets like that!' but there's the evidence. First rate pics and report guys.

We are out of Internet at the moment

Wifi is next to impossible so we will not be updating any reports until we return to Mexico on the 19th March

Cheers Andi and Ellen

wifi and road signs are rare

Hi, been following your trip all the way.
Was hoping you would choose to go to Cuba.
I travelled it in 03 for two weeks. No Gps and
bad road maps. But the people were always
friendly, except the fisherman near Bay of Pigs,
guarding their blackmarket catch.
Don't miss the little town of Trinidad, south shore,
and Cienfuego. Beautiful. Lots of horse and pony
carts. Fair winds, dgeezer, Che lives.

So there I am on couch-surfing looking for folks to stay with on the beginning of my RTW down through Mexico this April and I start reading the reviews of this one guy and one of the reviewers seems awful familiar THEN I REALIZE IT WAS YOU TWO WHO REVIEWED HIM.

What a small world.

The spot died in a rain storm a couple weeks ago.

Cuba... the home of.....

Hey Andi, I'm hoping you are going to give us a report on smoking a fat hand-rolled Cuban cigar when you are back. :-)

The good stuff, too bad they are not able to take a boat and haul out more than a little:


Crazy example, I saw one of the same boxes in Allbrook in Panama City selling for $625 Cost about $25 under the table if you find the right person

Not a totally dark zone, just damn expensive to use
