    Do what you want to do and feel that you need to do. As I said before the only regrets I have in life is about things I wanted to do but did not do.

    Enjoying your RR. Your photos seem to be getting better and better.

    I remember you telling me that about regrets.
    They are words that I will live by.
    last night The Cure was playing in concert here in Lima.
    I didnt know about it until this morning
    I regret not knowing about and not going.
    I am trying not to miss anything on this trip.
    One regret I will have is passing by something I didn't know about to only find out later about it.
    It would be heartbreaking to find out that I miss something spectacular and pass on by it because of my ignorance. This might be the only time in my life that I have this kind of freedom to travel the world.
    In this world of internet and global communivation, information is nearly perfect and at little or no cost.
    There is no reason to miss something along the way.
    So I regret not going to see The Cure last night.
    I am not a big Cure fan but........how much fun that would been to see them in Lima

    I have my wine collection at my ex gf's house because I thought I would be returning to her. she chose to end the relationship back in January and has been in a new relationship since that time.
    Four months later, I meet someone and she is threatening to drink my wine.
    I know there are two sides to every story, but I don't think this right.
    I would have been more than happy to share every last bottle with her but she couldn't wait for me to return.
    She asked me to move my stuff out which I am currently in the process of getting that done by the end of next month

    Wow - yes, there are two sides to every story and I have a big one to share but choose not to. I really want to disclose everything now, including the lies. I have bit my tongue for too long and it's honestly hard to keep quiet on this but since you chose to expand on my post I felt the need to reply.

    As much as I would like to reply to your comment to clear my name, I fear things would only escalate.
    This blog is not the place for that.

    Both of you, take it off line. No one give's a sh#t. The ride and personal philosophy are great and inspiring, the private stuff should stay that way.

    Calm down because people do give a sh!t. This is his trip and he can tell the story any way he wants. There will be physical, personal, and emotional challenges in one form or another on any long term ride. Going on an adventure like this is not all fun and games.

    Lalo - thanks for sharing and please carry on.

    My ex gf is a good person
    I know it deep down inside past the hurt.
    Because that is where I was at when she broke it off with me and started to date her new BF.
    With that said, that is all I am going to say.
    The personal stuff is between us.
    And I hope it stays that way.

    But I do have a situation that I am trying to deal with from afar.
    I have a storage container on her property with some motorcycles and other personal possessions that I need to move to another site.
    It is not as simple as just moving the container as the motorcycle would all fall over in transport. I need to move the individual bikes and the container separately.
    I cant just hire a moving company as I dont trust them to move motorcycles.
    It is looking like I might need to fly home for a few days to deal with this situation.
    There has to be a easy solution to this.
    I need to sleep on it.
    And I didn't get much sleep last night worrying about
