As we were having stuff down, it started to rain again, and I had not covered up my sheepskin seat cover Which would get wet and not be fun to ride with. As I walked back to do this, I noticed that one of the vendors I had met couple days ago, was out covering my bike seat and tank bag with a large plastic bag It typifies the great warmth and help that the Colombian people have been. They go out of there way so many time. He was busy working on Motorcycles, but he was watching over my bike, stopped what he was doing to cover my bike. It is amazing and brings a smile to my face in light of all of the violence/drug trade that you have read about in Colombia in our media.
That sums it up doesn't it. Amazing place and people. Thank you for sharing the truths of your travels!

Today marks the Anniversary of the last breaths that my lovely wife, Chris had on this earth.
As you continue to make your way in the next chapter in your journey of life, you can reflect on what has made you what you are, and brought you where you are today. God bless you both.

This is truly an amazing thread in so many ways.

Thank you again!

The memorial for Chris last year was a beautiful and heartwarming tribute to a woman that certainly touched many people, even those of us who never had the opportunity to meet her.

Take things easy today and find a flower for your lovely wife.

Hi Mark!

I don't know what to say to make it better, if I did I would say it to myself! But I do know that Chris and Sheryl would want us to move on and be happy. I am going through the process, doing things that brings me joy, but the hollow spot inside me is still huge! I'm sure you know the feeling. Someday that hollow spot will be replaced by a bright beautiful feeling, but it will take as long as it takes.

My sister and I are putting new flowers on Sheryl's grave today, I will think of you and Chris.

Donnie

Memory

God bless you Radioman, new to ADV, took me awhile to catch up to you on the BBS. Currently going through what you went through with my mother, she is currently in memory care in Eugene. Will continue to follow your ride, what a great adventure. Tied down here with a wife and kids in college.
