I can see them now.
Here in Brazil?
See the end of my thread for the 10.000 km trip videos!
Bump cuz in two days it'll be two years since I rode out of Madison. I was so fucking lucky- the day I rode out, it was about 50 degrees, but the high for Thursday will probably be 10. Riding out of Madison, right now, would totally suck.
It is amazing how quickly time flies when you're ... working...
Your bump really confused me as wondering what other "Latin America!" thread I had subscribed
When/where is the next big one???
Ssh. Secret. I don't want to jinx it. But if you see me knocking looking for a place to crash, then open the door. I'll have beer.
Hi Sorry to Interupt Current Ride Reports but I was just drinking a few beers and reviewing where I was two years ago. I laughed out loud at this post. Yes, I'm PWI. (Dear Noob: PWI means Posting While Intoxicated.)
Is there any other way?
Bump for it being 3 years since I stared out the window and decided to push through the next day no matter the weather.
Apparently subscriptions never end! Neither will the memories. Nice to see your thread again.. it's been a while.
Eat a piece of spicy cheesy bread for me.
dg -- waiting for Thursday for the arrival of bike in Thailand!!!
Sorry for disturbing your Thai hangover. Say hi to Mai Khunt, Phresh Poosay, and I Pregnant With Your Baby for me.
I decided to read your Latin America RR after reading your posts in Rider Missing in Mexico (Harry vanished) and I enjoyed your RR. 20 months have passed and I wonder if you have managed to find the time to go to Ireland? or other side of Pacific? Africa? Curious!!
And I wanted to say that it was interesting to see the difference between your RR in 2008 and most Latin America RR that was wrote (or typed) after 2012. Apparently WIFI has kinda got a bit better that more riders are able to upload pics than you did in 2008?? Just wondering out loud the difference here.
And I am in Barranquilla Colombia.. WIFI still sucks anyway. Probably fast enough to download pics but not enough to watch a 2 minutes clip from YouTube.
Yes there's a huge difference between 2008 and 2014. For example, I can upload pics from my iPhone from all over the world now. I just got back from India (without a bike) and while I was there, I stayed in touch with family and friends and I regularly uploaded pics.
My new camera is about the same size as my old one, but my new one is about eleven teen kazillion times better.
Nowdays, the ride is almost common. When I was doing it I was just about the only one out there. Colombia was still pretty dangerous. Glenn's kidnapping was still fresh. Now, if anybody asks me for advice, I tell them to avoid the backpacker-trail hostels and take a photography class.
ps: I'm glad you liked the ancient RR of mine.
And now, like forever later, in real life, we're friends. Life is cool like this.
If I could, I would do it again.
Twelve years ago yesterday I did this ride and it changed my life.
This is why I drink.
