    It has actually warmed up finally. It went from highs of -30 and lows of -37 to a balmy tee shirt +1 centigrade now. Work wise there isn't a lot going on though if you are an engineer. Lots of talk but no hiring yet.........

    Today is a day of morning as I just found out from @Cal about the loss of my special friend @dwj - Donnie


    These pics were taken when Donnie graciously helped me sort my paperwork out by escorting me to the Texas border. We remained in close contact ever since then. He would help me with bike problems and discussing everything from travel to business to politics to family. He is/was among the small group of very close people I met on my journey.

    Donnie will be greatly missed as will his wife Modesta.

    I will have a toast in remembering

    Found it, here's the link:
    http://advrider.com/index.php?threa...18-mexico-central-america-and-beyond.1273805/

    I posted it earlier but someone thought it better to have the link within that thread itself. Yeah, i don't get it either. This incident is distracting from my normally messed up thought process...
    Peace, man.

    Just seems like yesterday, that I steered you towards Donnie's blog, so you could contact him for advice on your TVIP dilemma! As in, you did not bother to get it at the border! You were already halfway in Mexico! Jajajajaja! RIP Donnie.
