    Only realise now the 11June 2011 was the day I started this thread on Advrider. We started riding in 2010 but that time wifi in Africa was no good and the reason I only started posting here the June after.

    Here's to all you dodgy bastard, and a big massive thanks that you guys kept it up with all the BS I posted and shared this journey with us. :super:thumb:beer

    When Michnus' photos are used in photography classes in future, this will be at the top of the list :thumb

    This may be a turning point, but not the end of your Adventures. I look forward to reading more of your wonderful BS and looking at your fantastic photos as you find the time to share them. Cheers to you and Elsebie!:beer

    Just wanted to chip in and say how much I appreciate the effort to keep this going (for years) for everyone to follow. An amazing journey and definitely an inspiration to get out and go somewhere myself. Cheers.

    I forget the name of it but there was a movie about the firs time Torres del Paine was climbed, a story about the rivalry of 2 climbers. It's a pretty good one if you can find it and fairly old by now.

    It takes great skill to translate the grandeur of what someone has experienced themselves into something that everyone can experience and appreciate. I can only say it again "absolutely stunning photography".

    "I sat waiting for a good 4 hrs for the clouds to bugger off to get a half-decent open shot of the peak." Wow. That's the kind of sacrifice you make to get a good photo. I look at your new photos each time you post and save the page to share with my wife. She knows more about photography then I do. She and her father were somewhat well known locally in the photo club. Stunning, just stunning - your photo work. You could easily publish a coffee table book like "Ten Years on Two Wheels."

    Worth reading, even with the "stupid grammar and even worse spelling." One of the best RRs I've ever come across. :clap

    Future civilizations will visit the ADVRider Museum and gaze at a glass case with a Moroccan leather-bound gilt-edged book with this ride report in it...
