    All these years later, still an exciting read. If I want to turn somebody onto ADV this is my go to thread.

    I do the same thing. I've shared this ride report numerous times; with riders and non-riders alike.

    It's always the same response. Holy $&@!%#!!

    This and the previous post are my absolute favourites on the whole site. Through the years I keep coming back to think of them. Thanks MJ.

    The ride reports on this site are a gem to enjoy. This one was just that and more. Well laid out, easy to follow, well written, great photos, and so much emotion in every letter and pixel made this an epic adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Well done and thanks for sharing!

    4 th time reading this and it gets better every time, I feel like an adventure pussy whining about how bad some stretches were in Southern Argentina.
    Ufortunately Metal Jockey has ceased to make epic trips, but has set a standard!

    That was Michnus and Elsebie in Copper Canyon at the time. They had a family emergency,had to cut their trip short. They should be back in Dilley Tex. around June 8 to restart their epic trip.

    You're just not ultra cool for making this trip, but also ultra lucky for having friends like that to do it with.
    Fantastic, awe inspiring and smilie-bringing report, pictures and adventure. I wish I can do something a tenth on the awesome scale of this, sometime :)
