Remember the rule of 1/3's. That's half of it.

Laugh Lots of asado

Day-364
11/2/2012
I woke up slowly to say the least this morning, when I have a few drinks I sometimes wake up very early and cannot sleep. I woke up at 3am and finally fell back asleep at 6am, they woke me at 10am to get ready and go to Ana’s parents house. We took a one hour bus out there and walked around the lake that the house sits next too. We hungout drinking Strawberry Daiquiri’s haha; the meat started to go on, first chorizo, fatty intestines were the next, and finally 5 kilo’s of different cuts of beef. We had a few liter’s of beer while we ate so so much meat; the food was incredible so good. The intestines were their favorite cut of the cow, the smell and taste were very strong but I really really enjoyed it. It is very fatty so so much flavor burst out of a crispy outer texture.
We headed out for a walk to the beach to walk off so much food and get ready for round two of Asado to come. We met some of his friends on the way back and they started to arrive at the house. We went into town to buy 10 kilo’s of meat and 12 liters of beer. We cooked the meat and as it was ready we would pull a piece off cut it into small pieces and everyone would grab a chunk and then repeat… We hungout till 2am drinking and eating awesome steaks and then headed back into the city.

Laugh Riding day 365

YEAH-YEAH-YEAH-YEAH… DAY 365 WHAT!!!!
11/3/2012
Today one year ago I said goodbye to my family and a lot of my friends before I went to Black Hawk Colorado four hours away from home to meet up with my friends for one more night before I left Colorado.
I packed up my bike said my goodbyes, headed for the coast, and headed North. I took route 10 most of the way along the coast a little longer of a trip but better than the main route of 9. It was a beautiful day to say the least and just a joyful ride even though my bike is running very rich and still kicking out some smoke, I can't help but be very nervous with my bike. I found Punta Del Diablo pretty easily and rode around looking for the hostel I had been suggested, it was very expensive but I felt like splurging a little for a few days on the beach since I won’t be on the beach for a while or in hot weather while making my way to Patagonia. I met a nice group of people while I was making dinner and we just hung out for a few drinks they all headed out to the bars and I was going to go. I went to my room to change and sat down on the bed, next thing I knew I was waking up a few hours later covered in skeeter bites haha. I threw on some bug spray and laid back down.



RAD TREE'S ALONG THE ROAD


SHE'S STILL ALIVE (kinda haha) AFTER 1 YEAR OF SHRED


365 DAYS OF SHRED, SO SO STOKED ON MY LIFE DECISIONS...HAHA

That's awesome..

Really wish sometime in my life I can say I celebrated 365 days on the road..

Enjoy it man. As you know (or may be forgetting) those options and opportunities don't come along often....

Just that picture of the beach has me dreaming about bumming around Belize, cooking breakfast in the morning while all the partiers were still sleeping and then heading out to chill around the island. It didn't involve my bike, but the bike got me there and I'll never forget it. 100's of scenarios like that where I think back and say "even the bad parts weren't that bad!" considering how things are now. (the only real bad thing was intestine issues, but I got them sorted! haha)

Computer screens, paper trails, traffic, icy roads, very few hours to do what YOU want to do, stress, etc. It's not worth it.

The long run goal has me tempting to do it again in a year or two. Probably a dash for S.A, then exploring and enjoying!

DAY 366-371
11/4-8/2012
PUNTA DEL DIABLO
I DID NOT REALIZE HOW MUCH I NEEDED AND WANTED SOLO TIME!! Haha Sounds crazy but since I got stuck in Bolivia I have been with someone either traveling, staying at their house, or just hanging out with; which I am not used to. Don’t get me wrong it has been awesome and has saved my ass being able to stay with people and make such awesome friends. But I need some Fletcher time and this town was perfect for this, there has been nobody in town for the whole week since it is off-season. I have had time just to chill, go for massive walks, go swimming (freezing my … off). On the 5th I had been gone gone from Colorado for one year and I sat at the beach and drank whiskey.. perfect day.
I had dinner at a little hole in the wall, the owner and friends were awesome.. He told me they had shark which is the known dish of Diablo.. He said he would feed me till I was full.. (I did not believe him)
I had my first plate which was awesome and so tender, he then asked if I wanted me?? Ugh yeah of course and he made me a whole second plate!!!! I love this place, I just hung out for a beer and a chat..
I did a 7hr walk and barely saw anyone.... although on the way home I walked around the point to see 12 dudes playing naked soccer.................

THESE NEXT BUNCH OF SHOTS ARE FROM MY 7HR WALK


Like I said off season not sole on the beach my own private walk...









DECIDED TO KICK THE SHIT OUT OF A ROCK AND TAKE A CHUNK OUT OF MY TOE





SUNSET DIABLO STYLE

SHARK DISH ONE

SHARK DISH TWO.. SECONDS??? YES PLEASE THANKS FOR ASKING, I LOVE THIS RESTAURANT

THE DINNER SHACK

THE VERY FUNNY AND AWESOME OWNER

Thumb Farm life

DAY-372
11/9/2012
Loaded up the bike pretty fast and headed North toward Brazil; I passed my road and kept going 3km’s to get gas and a snack. I got onto a dirt road and headed down it for 100+km’s it was a nice road just fast dirt cutting through the country side. I landed onto a paved road and rallied that for another 100km’s or so and stopped for something to eat and drink. Two nice Ninja 600’s pulled up and were talking about the motorcycle meeting, one of the largest in South America going on this weekend in Melo (where I was headed). I raged for another 100km’s or so and found a nice pull off over looking farm lands and rolling hills of Uruguay. I was about 8km’s out from Melo and started looking for Marcelo’s farm where his brother was going to meet up with me.. I saw it and pulled up; Pablo, Luis, and their 12 dogs came to meet me at the gate. I pulled in leaving the bike in the barn took off my upper protection and walked out of the barn.
“Do you know how to ride a horse?”
“ ugh… yeah sure I do….”
“Cool lets go..”
“Shit”
So we saddled up and we were off, they were laughing at me cuz I looked like a noob.. I started laughing saying I hadn’t ridden since I was a kid.. haha We all had a good laugh as I struggled to ride a crazy ass horse, who didn’t speak English, with me on the back pretty much pissing it off and killing it hahaha. I was still wearing my Klim Pants, just bouncing all around.. haha We rode about 10km’s through fields, creeks, dirt roads, and lots of gates; until we arrived and handed over the two horses Pablo had been trailing after his horse to his friend from another farm. Lets talk about horses.. where the hell is the kill switch and or Breaks!!! F-ing hell, this thing is crazy…. Hahaha We then rode back another 10km’s back to the house.
As we get back I realize I left my nice sunglasses at the river and we grab the truck and rally back to get them and lucjkily found them. I met their dad who is a super nice guy, although we have a little trouble communicating with my horrible Spanish.. haha We sat out drinking some beers and of course having Asado which consisted of a massive Veal Chop…so so Good

DAY-373-374
11/10-11/2012
FARM LIFE, FARM JOE STYLE
I woke up crushed, my back was all locked up and my stomach feels like I did a thousand sit ups.. We headed into town to grab some oil so I can do and oil change and change my spark plug, she is starting to run off again, I hope it is that she is just running super rich since she is still kicking out a lot of black smoke.. They said usually there is like over 2,000 bikes come to this meeting every year, well it is dumping buckets of rain and we only saw maybe 200 bikes and no bikers… although did see a busa, couple liter bikes, Harleys, and a lot of beers.
We took an easy rainy day on the farm just eating a lot and finished it off with another Asado.. ugh I have eaten so so much since being in Argentina/ Uruguay.. it’s all I do I think. So when I was with Marcelo he showed me pics of him killing and butchering sheep!! I want to do that I told him he laughed and said I probably could at his brothers farm. Pablo told me to wake up by 7:30am to milk some dang ol’ cows!!!

MAKING MY WAY

SHREDDING



WELL THIS IS A DIFFERENT VIEW

Laugh If you do not want to see or read about a lamb being killed and butchered

DAY-375
11/12/2012
YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS ENTRY IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE OR READ ABOUT A LAMB BEING KILLED
If your not a fan just skip this one..Fletch

I woke up at 7:30am and headed to find Pablo, he pointed me toward Luis’s room. He was already out milking the cow’s, it took me a few tries but I finally got the milk flowing. I walked around and collected 20+ eggs from all of the hen houses and then Pablo and me walked into the fields. As we were walking, Luis rode by on a horse and started chasing through the sheep and cows. Pablo showed me the natural well and then we caught up to Luis as he was tying up a three month lamb and jumping onto his horse with it. We walked back to the barn, sharpened up a knife and hung the lamb.
Not going to lie I was a little nervous, never killed an animal first hand; alright I wanted this put up or shut up… I was ready knife in hand and I walked into to the gated slaughtering area. I was instructed what to do, hold the head, knife was placed in the correct place, and just need to push…. Alright Breath and push.. nothing alright push like a man and there it went. Crazy it was like the movies you could have the blood bubbling and the lamb gasping for air, with one more slice it was over and she was day. The nerves were still making it kick around I thought it was still alive but it turned out to be the nervous system. Luis took over and showed me how to skin it and break it down.
I changed my oil and tore apart my bike, once again. I checked the spark plug, shit what the hell it is running lean!?!?!?!? Well why is it smoking like that?? Huh weird. It is also leaking coolant out the back fender where the run off hose is. I put everything back together and now it is smoking a more white smoke. I packed up my gear and headed into the main house for my veal dinner!!! They had done a braise with it which had made it incredibly more delicate, I had three servings it really was just that good!!!! Such an incredible experience to get to go from field to plate with in one day..
I headed to bed knowing I had a good day of riding tomorrow.

COLLECTING EGGS!!!

NO BIG DEAL JUST MILKING A COW IN URUGUAY

SHOWING ME THE NATURAL WELL

LOCAL URUGUAY BREED- BADASS DOGS
