MJ and CREW,

Thank you for taking us on a truly EPIC adventure...

May you and your crew have many more epics {and soon please} and post them here.

You can and should start an adventure tour company in S. Africa.


Congrats to the Angola Crew...

How many times can one repeat it, and still mean it from the depth of your heart ??

Thank you to the team who did the ride and shared it through the narative of MJ.

Amazing what a positive atitude and a smile can do.

Thanks again.

I was pointed to this forum to take a peek at this thread. That was about page 30 or so, and I have been checking it daily, several times a day, waiting to hear more. Had I found it only today, I would have read right through it in one sitting. As it was, while waiting for MJ to add more, I looked at other ride reports and threads (and re-checking this one), and ended up staying. I didn't want to "interrupt", but I know you wanted feedback, so now that you're done...

I find myself looking at your adventures and wondering why I have put so much (any) emphasis on the things I have always felt were somehow important, and finding more things that truly are not that.

Thank you so much for living your life like that, and sharing it with us.

I havent frequented this forum as of late, but someone linked this thread to washingtonriders.com. I have read every post! I am suprised that no one has stated what a wonderful writer you are. All too often the narrator is cocky as all get out. Even though they play it off as a joke, we can feel it. You told it like we were right over your shoulder the whole way! Thx a million for this thread, even though, i have to set you straight, YOU drive on the wrong side of the road!!! If you folks ever come to Seattle, I'd love to meet you!

I think, I think, MJ would not have gone to these lengths if it wasn't for all you crazy motherf*krs encouraging him to carry on !!!! So, a special thanks to YOOUUU ALLLLLL.
Safe journeys - LOVE
Nice Porn!!!! Excellent, Bravo!
Now, we need you & other members to agregate to this. not just small contributions

And MJ, does Jose has internet? he shoudl be invited to this forum.

Its amazing how things happen nicely when not forced ...... hate cities, but needed something - leaving after no luck, but find a friend that was a foe and that contributed to apreciate the city in a different way. If your fking battery was ok, you would miss this part of the trip!

I did an 8 month travel -and thats one the most important things I learned - dont force & no rush, flow with the situation, addapt to it, it can bring better memories.

Above all stop pandering to posts from morons like Venteuri who can't even spell Venturi properly.
