Nice, Rogue. Good to be back on the road with you.

Oh, and it's spelled, "palapa."

The magic is back!
This is one of the best reports that I have ever read.
It's got to be hard to study after looking at these pictures. You must want to get on the road again.

I am not even 1/6th of the way through this yet, and am transfixed. It is better than any book I have read in some time, and makes me want to do that trip I have always been talking about. Magnificent.

I must say THANK YOU, Rogue1!

It's a great thing that you've made the effort to share this with so many people. We all appreciate it and enjoy the updates for sure.

I used to run a local website in the mid 90's and I couldn't believe how eager and sometimes demanding people would be for me to work on it. They would want me to constantly update the site and include pictures of their bikes, etc. You've developed quite a following and enthusiasm for your story & pictures. In your case it is atmittedly well deserved. You've shared some very well written accounts of your journeys and some great pictures.


Now for those who are hounding him for updates...
It is great that Rogue1 is sharing this stuff with us. Let's give him some breathing room, huh?
Gifts mean much more when they are freely given.

Man, this thread is great...

I was going to suggest, in light of the Rogue1's earlier adventures, that the two women in the Nissan be ever after referred to as "The two who got away," but your scenario offers better alternatives.

Another long week, it's Saturday morning and I have a 7:30 conference call.

Then I find our man has done an update and, suddenly, the world is a nice place.
