    Thanks for the compliments Firebolt! Kristi and I are in the process of planning round three! We just bought a Subaru Justy, and can't stop thinking about driving it to Panama!!!

    Outstanding, the most conversational RR I've ever read. Felt like getting emails from a friend. If you haven't written a book yet, it's not for lack of material!

    Thanks for putting in the time to do this. There was a ton of great info beyond the amazing stories.

    Big Al, doesn't a Justy have a surfeit of wheels (plus two, to be exact)?

    Hey Tex76! Thanks for reading the ride report. I had a great time on the ride, and very much enjoyed writing it as well. Thanks for the compliments! The book sits in 400+pages of Word Document's that must be filtered (1200+photo tags) before it's readable as a whole.


    Sion, you'll be happy to know that just a few short weeks after buying it, our Subaru Justy was the unfortunate recipient/victim of a hit and run and was thoroughly totaled. It no longer exists, and as such, the 2wheel vehicles are back on the mind!

    Hola Molonlabemike, aka Mike. If Kristi and I make it to L.A. for some reason, I'll take you up on that offer!

    Im having a bit of a sneaky hour away from what I should be doing checking out some old thread's,and even though Ive only read page one Im sitting here thinking Im jealous. :D
    As I started to read page one it's made me have a few thought's on my own life? Im happy,and I tell people Ive no regret's with any part's of my past life,it's all an adventure,but then I think my life's adventure has not been as good as other people's life adventure's..... Never mind though,hopefully Ive still got a lot of year's left to do some catching up on with some trip's (Shorter one's!).
    It look's like tonight I'll be back to this report to finish reading it.:D Only 85 pages for me to read now.:D
