    Ha nice! Thanks for the praise!

    Dang! I'm sorry we didn't go to Leon at all! We are on Ometepe now (for the 6th week!) and trying to pry ourselves away. Just got accepted for an incredible work/learning exchange in Costa Rica though, so maybe it's time to move on. :evil

    :D Sorry for the lull in action. A bunch of friends flew in to visit and we were running around with them. All the kudos help spur us to action though!

    HERE YA GO!

    Oh and also, we got some rad custom postcards printed up with us and our bikes on them and we're about to mail them out, so if you'd like to help keep this show on the road and get some fun mail from us, stop by the support page here and donate: http://blog.motoventuring.com/?page_id=516 :freaky

    I enjoyed that update. Sometimes you don't have to go very far or see many sights to have an experience. :lol3

    Great videos! I think that dude in Utila was trying to say spark plug..... there are several ways to say one thing in Central American countries.

    You girls are having the ride of your life!. Congrats! :freaky

    Maybe? We haven't heard anyone else say piston for spark plug though and they say "pistón" for piston...I think he just wanted us trapped there forever.

    Anyway, here's Part 1 of Utila! Part 2 is uploading, but could be hours, hang tight!

    Me too.

    I can't figure it out how addicted I've become to your video's. Each post is a whole new adventure. One of the qualities is how un-pretentious and strait forward you guys are. Down right cute

    It doesn't make much difference to me about your final destination it's the adventure along the way. That's made even more exciting with the live action movies. Good decision about that.

    Stay safe!

    And when I stand on my head the sunglasses seem fine.
    Once again, excellent video and reports of your adventures.
    I signed up for Pay Pal so that I could contribute a small token of
    appreciation, and a beer.
    Keep up the good work. Adventure on ...

    Yo Andrea, sure seems a lot like the dengue I experienced in Nicaragua a few years back.....in the moment death was acceptable I felt so shittay. :puke1 :flush

    Only other thing I know of that can cause same feeling comes from wearing glasses upside down. :rofl


    Thanks for keeping it real.

    Sorry to leave you guys hanging! We've been primitive camping and building structures on a little finca in Costa Rica with limited power and no internet. We just ran into town to get a few things done and then we're back up to the boonies. It may be a while yet til we can get to work on another episode! Sorry for the delay, all I can do is assure you we've been having adventures and let you know we'll get an update eventually! It may still be a while though! Thank you for your patience, enthusiasm and concern. :D

    It's because we totally love you!
    So glad you are well and having fun. I will stop
    being too demanding for now, but remember we need
    a fix of vicarious adventure just to sustain life
    here in the states.
