Catching up from AZ....or some hotel or another

I am far behind, but have been reading several pages with my mouth open in awe.

Awesome thread Mark. I don't comment much, as there is so much good stuff here without my thoughts....however that first video on page 208 is perfect.

I love the Executive Producer. Spot on.

Go Radioman Go!

I wondered if the GS was still around in moth balls.

Hoping I can get a weekend for a visit while youre in PDX. It'd be good to see you, Mark.

Not everyone loves Radioman

My wife is tired of me going to bed with Radioman every night!
I just spent the last two weeks reading from start to finish. It goes without saying this is one great report.
I had a young Swiss guy stay in our home for three weeks last July after meeting him in a campground on a cycle trip through BC. He rode an Africa Twin from Anchorage to Ushaia over the course of ten months during the same time you were there and I kept expecting him to show in one of your pictures. He is not on ADV but is a true adventurer as yourself.
I'm hooked and will continue to read along. Also sending positive thoughts your way for continued safe travels.

Wow Mark...an awesome Adventure to be sure...I became aware of this report thanks to MoBill...see I lived in NJ 35 yrs and only the past 2 1/2 yrs down here in NC...Used to play those NJ TOR games MoBill posted 2 videos you did on the GSTOR Mindless Dickery Thread...one was India with Mobill...so that was a few weeks back...I've finally caught up with you and looking forward to your next installment in South America...Even though you've already been thru NC...you can add one more place/person who'd be welcoming you to stay a night or 3... I have read many a fine RR on this site but yours is the most epic to date...

GS is ready to ride as soon as I get home to PDX. Not yet sure of my schedule on the weekends.... But will have some time for sure.

Enjoying some time at South Beach



Some Coffee and desserts....



Driving in a fast car.....



Then having some homemade Blackberry Pie







and the waiting ......



Fresh out of the oven. mouth watering smells of fresh Pie.







We shared pie for the next Breakfast, Lunch and dinner. Lasted less than 24 hours in 24 hours





Then a trip to Fairchild Botanical Gardens.



Lots of Butterflies out!



Flowers smelling good, and bring out the butterflies.









Ladybug would like this place :)













Larvae New butterflies soon.



Then while walking through the gift shop.......





Had a good chuckle. This break from riding has been great!!
