    Dylan, I just read this R.R and it left me speechless, so I decided to just type this. Your ability to do road repairs on the Beemer alone make you stand head and shoulders above others on this forum, but building your own boat and sailing around the Darien is just f*&^ing awesome!

    Where can I find your Payal info so I can send you a bejamin to help you on your way?

    Thanks for being so active in my RR . I liked it when you posted those videos in the RR. I had trouble with my computer keyboard and I couldn't really do too much except posting photos.

    Dylan,

    I'm blown away by this report. The obstacles you have overcome, and the way you have overcome, is staggering! :bow :bow

    It is truly inspirational.


    I have to admit, I'm a bit confused now though. Is the report now being done in real time? Do you have your motorcycle or is it on an island somewhere?

    I'll be PayPal'ing some support to you ASAP! :clap

    Dylan, that was f%*&ing amazing dude, you truly are one gnarly adventurer.

    Most people would have been a statistic by now, just another crazy dude lost at sea, but you pushed it through and made it work. Awesome.

    I met John while admiring the old bikes and he offered me his yard to camp for the night. As a motorcycle enthusiast here he proudly presents the jeans he wore when he took part in a tire burnout contest. His pants caught fire from the melted rubber landing on the backside.

    This is one un-f@cking-believable RR !!!

    sometimes i have to stop reading and look at my sorroundings to ensure that i'm not in some dreamland/movie theatre.

    You, my friend are a genuine adventurer and certified nut-case.

    :clap:clap:clap:clap :freaky:freaky:freaky :clap:clap:clap:clap

    hope the small contribution helps you go a few kms further...

    :-) WarLlama. When I searched for boatercycles I found none in the internet. Obviously you gotta a better search engine. Originally I wanted to build a boat with the paddle wheel. But I think they are terribly inefficient. But it looks cool though! But what is the photo with the guy all about?
