    Holy Doodle! You been a busy traveling man. Just got home and am checking in (been off the grid since the 27th of Aug.) I just wanted to say I really enjoyed hanging with you up in your playground and am very happy the Bike was a relative easy fix.


    All the best to you on your return south........ I, as many, many others, will be following along. :lurk.

    This is beginning to sound like you might be late for the PDX Meet-Up Thursday night, by maybe a year or two. We'll save a spot for you. :freaky

    Go far, see lots, post much.

    Via Con Dios.

    :wave Jorg hoping to make to Africa at some point in this journey!


    Just before 5 am on Tuesday September 11th. Sitting at the airport after my buddy Dave got up to drive me at 4AM. Thanks Dave! :clap It is a reflective day more me as I restart the Adventure in South America, and also as I think about the Fateful day 11 years ago. Remember vividly waking up with my lovely wife, and watching the news as we were walking out the door to go to work, then hearing the details expand and the second plane hit while I was in the car. :cry :cry

    It has changed our world in so many ways. :cry So many suffered great losses that day, and it changed so much of our daily lives. Sadness and grief for all the losses.

    Had been on the World Trade Center towers dozens of times. Hard to grasp that they no longer exist and it happened in an Attack on America.:cry

    My wife and I were in NYC less that 2 weeks after ..... Walked within two blocks and saw all the signs of people looking for loved ones in Union Square.

    Lots to think about on days like today. Looking forward to sharing the road with you as I get to Quito, retrieve my bike and start riding south! :ricky

    Mark, have an epic trip down yonder. I was able to visit a little with Sam between mouthfuls of prime rib at the Happy Trails Rally in Kamiah, Id this weekend and I'm sure he's thinking of you and wishing you the best of travels. He mentioned he didn't have much of a internet conn. where he was so had a hard time keeping up to date with your travels. Take care and don't drink the water. Very nice pic of you and your wife Mark. RJ in Walla Walla.
