Yeh, I didn't think I would enjoy the ruins as much as I have
And the Joto in the cenote just made the adventure more interesting
HA

Awesome

As many people have mentioned, this is an awesome RR. Just fount this thread, but caught up with it in one day, it was so riveting :-). I had a random question. I, like many on is forum, am just getting back into this after raising a bunch of kids. Happy to say I went on my first solo week long ride this fall. I figured before I saw "the world" I needed to see America. My question is this...when you travel through the US, where did you spend most nights? Bacause this was my first trip, I did the Holiday Inn route, but even that added up to $500 bucks or so. Did you do campsites or jut pull of the road like you did in Alaska? I don't drink, so I should save some bucks in that department :-)

Finding a place to stay is part of the adventure
Last night I slept under some power lines on a remote road
In the us it is easier
It takes a while to spot the right places
Look for scenic spots off the road
If you see a radio tower that can be a good spot because it will have a view
Just get out if the hotels and in to a tent
Thats the trick

OK, thanks. Could you give us all some tips on how to find the right space. Being a guy who tries obey "the law", how do you know if its actually cool to camp? For instance if its private land, the owner might not want you here and call the authorities. If its public land there are probably laws about setting up a tent. Or maybe it's cause I'm from NY and there's a lot more hospitality once you get out of the tristate area :-)

Ask the locals
Ask the guy at the gas station where to camp
Make sure they know you are not looking for a camp ground
You want somewhere to camp that the locals know about
For example, I was at a winery in BC and asked the gal working there.
She told me about these undeveloped lots on the hill over looking the lake. It was perfect
I was camped on a million dollar lot with a million dollar view.
Another time I asked someone and they told me about this great spot on the river
Never forget that one
Be prepared to bend the rules a bit
And if needed, beg for forgiveness
Last night I camped on tge beach and had tge beach to myself
You will get the hang of it with practice
Look at my pictures
Most are spots I found on my own and most people would never thing to camp there

Sad I missed your Christmas feast
But I had dinner with some new friends
We found a little taco stand open and had beef, chorizo, mushrooms, peppers, onions, bacon and cheese all mixed together.
I am sure I will being sick tomorrow but it sure tasted good going down
