I read most of the email updates and usually wait a day or two to "catch up" by reading everything at once.

I love seeing all that you've experienced, hearing how you've made lemonade, and are generally enjoying your trip so far.

Definitely looking forward to your journey to the far south

Colombia Ride video

James had been editing and working on videos. Thought I would share his work (since I have not got around to working on any more )

Enjoy! Thanks James

AWESOME Great video. You guys are crazy on some of those blind curve passing. But I know that's right your alley Mark.

Glad all is well way down there.

more please.

Great video, an A plus job well done. You better hope Pansy doesn't watch it though. She will be all over you with I told you to take it easy, and ride slower. Oh well maybe she will miss it, not. Sure looked like the twisties there would make for a great time. Thanks guys for sharing.

Hello Soph,

Riding Solo or riding with a partner both have advantages.

Solo you can just make all the decisions about the day, the ride, stopping whenever and wherever you want. You need to step out and socialize a bit more or you could get lonely if you isolate yourself. Costs go up as you are getting single rooms.

While riding with someone else you have to adapt to them and they to you. It has some trade off's but you gain the "security" and help if you have problems. You can share in the decisions about where and when to go. You can split room cost which helps in the financials of being on the road for a long time. If you communicate well, you can maintain your own "space".

James and I have got on well, so it has been good riding with someone else. . We plan to ride the next 4-5 weeks, then our paths will split to do various other things (more on this in a few weeks ). But depending on our choices we might meet up with further down on South America. We will all see.

Last thought I know that I would not want to ride in a larger group as the dynamics can really change your trip. But that is just for me. James can pipe up and comment if he likes

Can you take the time to explain the charging setup that you have for your Macbook, please? Do you have to involve inverters and the like? How do you keep your camera(s) charged? Really appreciate your reports and the time it takes to share with us. Vaya con Dios.

Redhed,

All the power is 115. so I plug in my MBPro most nights holds for 5-6 hours. It can be a challenge in that there are usually not too many outlet in the rooms. I have a 1 into 3 power outlet with me and James has a long extension cord.

Have multiple batteries for my GoPro and Cameras. Just have to keep on them to keep it all charged.

Hope that helps. It is lots of stuff to carry, but great fun to share the video!

Please Note that Radioman did slow it down and there was no footage of me passing on blind corners in this video. It's All Young James. I have slowed me pace " Lento y Seguro "
