    Hey Donnie,

    We crossed back into Nic today from Costa Rica and are in Rivas for a couple days. We made our goal of the end of the road in Yavisa, Panama and are making our way Norte. If our paths cross we'll by you a beer!!!!

    I crossed over into Costa Rica today. A five hour or so border crossing! This is my first time in Costa Rica. This makes seven countries so far on this trip. I should cross over into Panama within the week. Depending on available time, I may hit Belize on the way home.

    Cool!! My dad loved Costa Rica and a couple of my old bikes ended up there.

    Lots to see. Very diverse flora and fauna.

    He spent a lot of time there for a decade or so. Really enjoyed the Guanacaste, Pacific coast and the volcano area above Alajuela. Wanted to rent a house there.

    Enjoy yourself.

    I am in San Jose, Costa Rica and will head toward the Panama border today. I will probably stop short of the border and cross Sunday.

    Hi Donnie. Glad to see you are on the road still. Wife and I had a nice stay in Puerto Vallarta. Not sure what Ill ride this summer. CD is on the list. Still have the DR 650, KLR, WR 250, 1150gs, 1150gs. I'd like to do what you are doing but I would like to spend a month in Mexico first. Saludos amigo Farrell

    So how are your travels? I know your latest trip isn't part of this RR but just curious to see how you are doing

    Later

    Hey Donnie. I'll be down in PV again first week of May. Take off about the 27th of April on the beemer this time. Going to another MMS health seminar. No i'm not too sick,well you may differ with that, but my neighbors are dying of cancer and maybe I can help. Getting excited about it. Got to tune the new 04 GS up with 10K miles. Maybe have to get a new tire in Mexico on the way back. I should be gone a month or so. Get out of there before the rainy season. cheers

    I had a great time. I didn't do a RR, but I do have some pictures that I plan on posting.
