    Hi there. I'm new to ADVRider and RR's. Also new to riding. Planning a trip from Bogata to Ushalia to Buenos Aires next fall, so reading your RR with great interest. Keep up the great work.

    However, that's not really why I reached out to you! I must say that your pics are simply stunning. You have a great eye for color and composition. Truly magnificent. You say you're not a professional, but IMHO, you have a real talent, and perhaps something you should pursue after you finish your adventure.

    Ride safe and keep up the great work.

    Cheers

    You mention that you found supporting yourself through photography difficult. How did you envision this happening? I mean, who did you think you sell your services or photographs to?

    I didn't mean to imply attitude but just a simple query. I have a friend who also expected to support himself (partly) by snapping as he went, but hasn't found it practical to both travel and find solid subject matter.

    I was wondering if you had a contract with some commercial site or magazine or other publication. After all, it's a dream for some of us to travel but we don't have the spare money or can't stand the loss of income during the travel so something to work at and earn as we travel would be a boon. That's all I was after.

    Good luck where ever you go. Glad you your bike is running good and you got it sorted. If you do it right, Norcal doesn't have to be expensive... but for me it was. I rode up HWY 1 in April and it rained on me almost every day. It was nearly impossible to find a hotel less then $100.

    From the way the ADV crowd has reached out to you already, I'm sure you will have many couches to crash on :clap

    I hope you can still make it into Central and South America... but where ever you go.. it will be an adventure. :deal
