    You're right about that Ninja, editing is the real work and you have to be ruthless. It sure is painful at times though...

    I traced the Mexico border for a few hours in SW Texas but never crossed over. I would have loved to, but I was already pushing it given the distance to home vs # of days remaining.

    Thanks for watching Wander! I don't know what it's like where you are, but this never-melting snow has got my throttle hand itchy!

    Lovely, well done video I have greatly enjoyed! Everything just flows so nicely, and really tells the story. It's like living on fast forward. :thumb And I keep thinking about PEI and Gaspe since I've never made it there.

    Loved the video! Thank you for sharing.

    35 hours straight on a bike?! That's something. I have done it in a car but then needed a full day or two to recover. I can't imagine doing it on a bike. Glad you had an amazing trip. Watching this made my current shelter in place a little more bearable.

    Great video , must have been a fantastic trip . I’m lucky enough to have been to many of the same places . It did take me from 1987 to 2019 to do it but it brought back great memories .
    You met C-Zulu , I have met him as well great guy .

    Thanks for watching bt.

    The helmet cam is a Sena 10C all-in-one bluetooth communicator and hd cam. Worked really well for my purposes (filming video and listening to podcasts/music). It has an internal battery but that runs out in about an hour. I ran a usb cable from my jacket pocket power bank which would keep it going for hours.

    Glad you liked Drac. I have a Gaspé trip video from a couple of years ago (if you haven't seen it):

    as well as a couple ADV Rider threads about the trip:
