    Now that Latin America is its own place... (In the olden days, the world was divided in such a way that there was one section, "Outer Darkness." It included everything that wasn't in the United States. One day, after vigorous but largely ignored debate, Outer Darkness got split into sections. Latin America

    Hi All,

    Thought I'd post a link to my Colombia ride report. It's a work in progress. Check it out and feel free to leave comments. They keep me motivated. (Yeah, OK, my ego needs strokin') :D

    Here's the link...

    Hey mods, how about making this thread a sticky?

    Thx!

    Edit: Work in progress -

    Seems like I've got a placeholder here near the beginning of this thread. I'm having a hard time figuring out which threads are here so I'm going to try and keep these summarized in the last post of this thread. A clickable link to the named thread and the originator of the thread.

    As I get this updated, I'll delete it and move it to the very last thread. That way, you'll see a summary of everything up to that point. Anything beyond the summary will not be included.

    CAUTION: This is a work in progress and so the last link does not yet contain everything. But that's my goal!
    Anything I can do to help Bananaman get the 3rd Annual Latin American Riders' Rallye organized!




    Here´s a link to a ride report not on AdvRider. But, Thierry, from Switzerland, is on the first month of a 5 year ride around the world. He is a member of HU but not AdvRider. I met him in Antigua last week and he´s a hell of a nice guy.

    Why not sign his guest book and talk him into joining our little community? Or at least offer him a little encouragement?

    Most of my trip reports up and down the penninsula coincide with a SCORE racing event. The other links are commentaries from my staging area in Cabo Pulmo.

    I'm gonna have a SA ride report for you that just won't quit. I hate doing research for a ride but this one has me reading everything I can get my hands on. I love SA!

    You make it to Columbia for the rally and I'll get you a beer.:freaky

    ahoraquemister is riding from Bogota to Buenos Aires, and he writes with color in a small font, like this: :norton:becca:norton¡¡¡¡¡¡Bogota Colombia to Buenos Aires December 17th - 2008 to January 17th - 2009!!!!!!!.

    It's catchy, this mulit-color writing! Oh, he says he's too busy to link his thread himself. So now he owes me another beer.

    ahoraquemister is a funny guy. He said he'd post the link... and he posted it on my Latin America! ride report. Here it is, verbatim:

    ps: for the noob's out there, or for those of you who just don't know the real truth- in the old days, the world was divided into three parts: the USA, Yourup, and Outer Darkness. All of the world south of the USA was included in the "regional forum" known as Outer Darkness. Barb and I went on a little ride to Mexico. I started a ride report called "Latin America!" Soon after my awesomenest ride report, the all-powerful mods got together and got drunk and ended up naming a regional forum after my ride report.

    That's the history of advrider according to me.
