    Simon and Lisa, it was so great seeing you guys out here in Vegas! Even though I missed the actual presentation, you guys more than made up for that with good food and wine. It was a pleasure to host you in my home, and look forward to running into you both again in the very near future.

    Cheers, Steve

    I just wanted to say thank you to you both for sharing your very intimate and amazing journey around the globe with us. Your presentation was so inspirational to me that I'm now going to plan an adventure as well...

    I met you at the Ventura BMW dealership the other night but sadly had to leave early. I would love to contribute to your awesome journey if you please guide me to where I can send it

    Thank you both again,

    Hi Nancy,

    We (wife, daughter and I) were at Ventura also.

    There is a support tab at the top of Lisa's and Simon's website http://2ridetheworld.com/. That's what I used. I'm sure they appreciate anything and everything.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Bummer I used to live in CA but now reside in the midwest (Minnesota) so I missed all your west coast presentations. Do you have any plans to come out to the midwest and do a slide show?

    My early apologies if you've answered this already. I haven't been on following the thread in quite a while.

    Cheers!

    I 100% agree! :clap

    I'm located in Fargo, ND - nearest BMW dealership in Monticello, MN - I'd be up for a 3hr ride (each way) to come and drool over your images and stories! Midwest isn't all that bad...except riding through ND. :puke1 Or, in your case, cut down through Canada on your way back from AK?

    I will be there for sure. I was out of town when you were in Roseville last month. Not missing it this time! After talking with the folks in Modesto, it sounds like it should be a great turnout. Looking forward to it.

    Was good meeting you two at the presentation last night! Food, beers, excellent photos and videos and recaps of your awws and your trials.

    Ride safe, and keep us updated with your adventure going down to Mexico.

    My biggest challenge in life at the moment is where to hang the photo I picked up. They have some beautiful shots, guys, pick one up!

    Is there a link for online ordering? I actually want to get a couple for gifts for some of my adventuring buddies.

    Lisa and Simon are great people to get to know. The stories of their travels coupled with the advice they are so willing to give the would be adventure traveler is priceless! Going to miss them both after they leave out of Vegas to head up to Seattle, but we will see each other again.
