    Good luck with your journey. Consider a bit more of Africa if time and funds permit.

    If things work out I could ride down and meet up with you Mid Island and then take the path less traveled north... I'm sure that at least one of the dirt routes will be open by early May...

    Another idea on the CD drive... Download Daemon Tools lite (it's free). Use it to make a disc image of Rosetta stone, then use it's virtual drive to mount. I keep all my computer programs I need on a Netbook this way, including the entire ktm 990 manual.

    Good luck on your trip and have fun!

    Best of luck with your travels.....for those who are unable to partake in such adventure we look forward to these reports........I think the other inmates would agree that if you need anything do not hesitate to ask........take care......
