    Maybe you should remove "stolen' from your headline. Call me selfish, but I want you to finish your RR before the police come :lol3

    Hey Fred,

    I wish I asked you more about your epic trip when we met you in Rio. I guess I'll find out soon. Looking forward to see all the pics and hear about the adventure you've been through.

    Hope you're enjoying BA!

    cheers :1drink

    That and all shape of similar questions/demands is what first posts here usually look like! <o:p></o:p>
    And than you show up here with your story and post #1 beats everything I’ve seen here since long! Not demanding, but just delivering! Not asking, just doing…. Look’s like you most definitely are a Doer! Has somebody asked you for the rights on your story already..??

    Not being funny or anything, but how has this thread gotten a 5 Star rating already? Come on, let's protect the integrity of the 'A' grade.

    It's about time you did a ride report...I shouldn't talk I guess, ours is kinda stalled in Ukraine...

    Tim and I are leaving Calgary in 3 weeks or so and expect to be in Columbia mid December. Petar and his friend are flying into Buenos Aires about the 10th of December. We'll all have to try to get together if we can. It'd be a full blown reunion. A little less vodka this time hopefully:freaky

    Well done sir.

    Some would call this a little reckless--personally, I think it is inspired.:lol3

    Just found this, read it entirely, subscribed, and put it up as the most epic, inspired, unfinished story I have come across so far and I think it puts most RRs to shame here (no offense to others), but the basis of this whole trip is just awe inspiring.

    Really looking forward to the next updates for sure.
