    Not too much spirit now on your b-day! I tossed back an extra glass of wine in your honor on your b-day. Stay safe and I am now calling you the most interesting man in the world. I will work on Dos Equis for corporate sponsorship :rofl

    I just checked in to a hotel in Coban Guatemala
    I needed wifi and a warm place to dry out
    Everything is soaked and muddy
    That is a hint about the past day
    I will share more after dinner
    I am working on dinner and a $9 bottle of Champagne right now (and it actually tastes like a $5 bottle of Champagne)

    Here is how I spent my New Years Eve in San Ignacio Belize...........doing some maintenance on my bike.
    Oil and air filter change
    I replaced the brake and clutch levers with some stubby ones. The orginal ones are more likely to break beacuse they are longer if the bike tips over

    I camped out on this ranch just outside of San Ignacio Belize. The sun was going down and I started to ask around where to camp. It looked like a scary area and they pointed me down this dirt road. I followed it and I was just about ready to give up when I found it. It was a little bit of paradise owned by some gringos. Highly recommended
