I posted that to make sure you bozos are reading my blog and not just looking at the pictures
I was reading...but from now on i will only look at the pics , i thought you might have said that in a sarcastic way (the lobster part, not the bozos :huh )
Yeh, let's face it.....the pics are the best part
I enjoy reading the block not less !!! :
Respect, awesome blog!
Men and boys in Northern Columbia have sex with donkeys. http://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/archives/film_documentary/2012_Jul_09_donkey-sex:wink:
We know you didn't take that since you are more of a boob guy anyway....
Great pictures Ed!
Mahima and I say Hi!!
Just checking in. Loved the pictures, but oh my gosh I would have been a bit worried about those little boats taking my cycle out to sea. Great adventure. Love the photos of everyone on the boat.
I am off in a few weeks..on my own little adventure (nothing like yours though!) I am going to drive with my dog, bike, and a few things in the FJ to St Augustine, FL and spend 3.5 weeks there learning to watercolor paint. I posted on FB the story, but I met this guy when I was in Key West over a year ago November. I have been learning to draw through email and I am not going for hands on experience to learn watercolor painting.
I will see a few people along the way, explore the city, walk the beach in the early mornings with my dog, take long road bike rides, SUP, and practice and learn watercolor painting. There is live music every night, and farmers markets so I will be content.
While I am gone I am going to contemplate unloading my possessions and taking several extended trips for a year or two. I can stay in between with friends/son, etc. Hopefully I will figure this out by the time I get back in May.
I really am impressed with your fortitude, courage, zest to do what you are doing. It has really pushed me to search my reasons for not doing the same.
Continue to enjoy your travels and be safe.
Nice job senior. Digging the posts homie. Keep'em coming! Especially pics of those who sell you stuff and then leave town. I just wanna know what else she sold you
Safe travels amigo!
Ed, your killing it! I'm so stoked for you. Did you let the Indians in on the "little" fact you shared @ Mikes last year?
And BTW.......what's new?
Yea, I succumbed:) Got a 2012 Rallye edition. I took it out already in some "secret" single track here in New England and it rips..
We were wondering why you didn't attempt the Darien Gap! HAHA
Hope all is well and glad you are having a great time!!
No problem......I will do the Darien in my back
Ask me that in a private message
I used the hammock last night on the beach here in Colombia
Its kind of small for me but I slept well
No......it's a BIG deal
Why do you think he let me off the island?
I was twice the man he was
Lmfao. Keep up the good work sir! I look forward to sharing a drink at Mikes and hearing some of your stories first hand. Until then rubber side down home boy!
I have been using photobucket to upload my pictures.
It seems that they have took all my pictures away and want to charge me to post more and let me see my old pictures again.
Not what I bargained for.
I guess I need to cough up some money to them so I can continue with my blog
But I guess there is no such thing as a free lunch
That's funny, I was in Key West about the same time as you (just before Fantasy Fest. I think I am sorry I missed it.
Have a great time on your trip.
I think it will give you an idea if you really want to travel for an extended period.
My friend once told me that you only regret not doing the things you want to do.......not the things that you do.
But use this time to explore your inner-self to see if an extended trip and selling all your stuff is really what you want to do.
And let me know how it goes.
Stay in touch
I have been here in Colombia for about 4 days now.
Here's what I have found out so far
First, they really like motorcycles here. Most of the roads I have been on have been toll roads. But there is a free lane just for motorcycle. It is only about 2 feet wide and sometimes it is a squeeze to go thru the toll booth in this free moto lane with such a big bike.
Second, I have not found all that many cute girls here. Everyone says Colombia (and Brazil) is the place. But maybe they are all in Bogota. And that's where I am heading now. We'll see.
Third, it's a big country. It takes a full day to go 2 inches on my map. In Central America, I could ride for 2 hours and cover the same distance.
Fourth, the people are friendly here.
Fifth, people drive crazy here. Fast. Slow. And without thinking.
My and my Russian friend came up to this traffic jam on a major two lane road. Traffic was dead stopped. We road the dirt shoulder (splitting between the big rig trucks and a 3 foot drop off the side of the road).
We got up to a point that looked like they were doing road construction. And the construction guys waived us thru. I thought they were just letting motorcycles pass. Up ahead, we arrived at the problem........a 4 truck pile-up blocking the whole road. We were able to weave our way thru the wreckage using the road and the shoulder. It was tight, but we were able to get thru. On the other side was 3 miles of trucks and cars waiting helplessly in the 100 degree heat for someone to clear the road so they could continue.
It was so nice to be on a motorcycle and get around this mess. As an added benefit, the road was almost completely clear of vehicles for over 100 miles. That meant no more passing big rigs for 100 miles. But the only down side was the big rigs coming the otherway, thought our lane was open and they were using it without caution to pass slower trucks. We both had a few moments but we arrived at Aquachica and got a beer. So all is well.
Nice to hear again from you, and read your blog is a highlight in our dull existence!
