    Alright, mostly writing this to find a group to ride with the rest of the way to Argentina. No specific route planned or timeline in mind. I am currently working with a medical clinic and building houses for the poor in Diriamba, Nicaragua. Would like to make some new contacts and meet new people along the way.
