    I havent frequented this forum as of late, but someone linked this thread to washingtonriders.com. I have read every post! I am suprised that no one has stated what a wonderful writer you are. All too often the narrator is cocky as all get out. Even though they play it off as a joke, we can feel it. You told it like we were right over your shoulder the whole way! Thx a million for this thread, even though, i have to set you straight, YOU drive on the wrong side of the road!!! :D :lol3 If you folks ever come to Seattle, I'd love to meet you!

    Nice Porn!!!! :D Excellent, Bravo!
    Now, we need you & other members to agregate to this. not just small contributions

    And MJ, does Jose has internet? he shoudl be invited to this forum.

    Its amazing how things happen nicely when not forced ...... hate cities, but needed something - leaving after no luck, but find a friend that was a foe and that contributed to apreciate the city in a different way. If your fking battery was ok, you would miss this part of the trip!

    I did an 8 month travel -and thats one the most important things I learned - dont force & no rush, flow with the situation, addapt to it, it can bring better memories.

    Hey MJ, amazing read. We live and play in Tanzania and we get to some seriously out of the way places, but I couldn't get it across like you've managed.
