Made it thru the night
Not all of my camp spots are glamorous
After riding in to the night I pulled over and camped on the side of a niosy road next to a polive check point
The big rigs kept me awake but at least I felt safe knowing the police were about one hundred meters away
Last night on the road, people were driving fast and crazy
I was following a line of about ten cars when a big rig past me. And he kept on passing cars around blind corners forcing oncoming cars on to the shoulder between the guardrail and a horrific head on collision with the bug rig.
Well he made it around all the cars and I pulled over and tried to sleep
It was freezing last night
Not that eighty degree beach weather I was used to for the past ten days
I am up about 6000 in elevation
Heading up to 15,000!!!!!!
Just read the whole thing in one sitting. Awesome
Really enjoying your RR, from Petrolia to way down South. Good stuff.
excellent ride report, dream ride!!!!! from new brunswick canada keep it! coming
Ok so I finally sign up to follow. Keep the RR coming. Josh
Loving the RR. Finally found and caught up to one of these world trips before they where finished. I'll be checking in often. Ride on brother!
You might have mentioned this but do you have a plan for Darian Gap? Personally I like the sail boat idea. Hopefully with favorable winds to use the sails. Just seems like a fun time.
Here is a ship a lot of inmates have sailed on to cross the gap. Need to plan ahead a bit though.
I just finished riding thru Mexico City.
Or should I say I survived it
I will give a full report when I get wifi again
Right now I have to get on the road while the sun is Ed
Thanks for the complement
It gets lonely out here on the road so it is nice to hear that someone out there is listening
Petrolia is a cool little town
Wouldn't want to live there though
But a friend of mine that knows I like to explore mentioned that I should check it out
Glad I did
Thanks for saying hi
Yep, it's my dream ride too
I just hope my dream doesn't turn in to a nightmare
Riding thru Mexico City was kind of a night mare. I just need to remember to stay away from the big cities
The good stuff is yet to come
So check back and say hi......eh
It's about time Josh
And I won't disappoint you or your kids
Just don't take off points for typos and grammar
Good timing because I am just getting started
Not sure yet what to do in Panama
I heard about the sailboat thing and that would be top on my list
But it is hard to plan anything
I am just (almost) totally winging it.
Somebody tells me about something and then I change course
A friend told me to check out the Pyrimids near Mexico City so I looked at my maps and squeezed it in today.
I am still a month away from Panama so we'll see when the time draws near
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated
Been following you... when do you cross to Guatemala? Tell us more about Mexico City.. be safe my friend..
I finally pulled myself away from the fancy digs in Puerto Angel.
It was time to explore and see new things
I heading away from the coast and took the mountain route to Oaxaca.
It was less than 150 miles and it took about 6 hours.
The first part the road climbed from sea level to over 8000 feet in the pine forests
It was 90+ degrees at the bottom and 60 at the top. The cool air felt good for a change.
I hardly got out of 3 gear most of the way. And when I got close to the big town of Oaxaca, there was lots of traffic and speed bumps to slow me down. But I got there in time to visit the Ruins of Monte Alban.
I was impressed by the size of the structures and the fact that almost no one was there
I had the place pretty much to myself
I am driving in to Oaxaca in rush hour traffic on a Friday afternoon.
My GPS doesn't tell me how to get there
My map says it is west of the City and that is about all I have to go on.
Fortunately, I made a few correct turns and got on the road that gets you there.
It was sure luck
