Wow, every time I visit this RR the pictures just get better and better. Thank You.
I well remember the vivid blue of glacier fed lakes from my time in Jasper, AB. If you need a little pick me up just jump in one.
Those panoramas of the roads in the last set are awe inspiring!
Thank you my friend.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING P& E
OH sure, just leave us hanging. I hope you two have a nice American Holiday where you are.
Paul, have you heard anything about the Brit mentioned in the regional forum that has gone missing?
thanks for the great reports you have put out over the years.
Thanks for the great ride reports. Hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving.
Happy turkey day everybody
Thanks Paul. Happy TD to you and Egle!
Amazing pics. Happy Thanksgiving!
Your photography and Egle's prose, individually, are pure magic! Combined they become mesmerizing.
Thank you for the pleasure and education you give me.
Whew! What a fantastic ride report! I found this thread about a month ago and have been binge reading ever since! It's like a never ending series of rabbit holes for me. I read about something that Paul and Egle have seen and then I go read more about it. Guatemalan Civil War, Oradour-sur-Glane, Cuba, etc. I've even been to the Yamaha dealer to check out a new Super Tenere!
Paul, it looks like we were in the same places at the same times a few times. I was in Crete when you were there. I absolutely LOVE Crete. I was in the Air Force at the time and spent some time there. Looks like we were in Moab at the same time too. I retired from the Air Force last year. I've been obsessed lately with getting out of the Matrix. HA! My wife is interested as well. Our daughter is getting older and will be moving out in a few more years. It would be the perfect time to sell everything and get a bike! Having an Air Force retirement is perfect for a RTW trip. Thanks for getting me dreaming again!
Excellent post. The only hard mile on your dream ride will be the first mile out of the driveway. Then you're sailing.
I've been a long time lurker and a great admirer of your photography. What a pleasure to follow you along!!!
It seems a common theme among riders who are doing blogs like this, to feel as if the posts they are putting up are worth their time and I can understand it, so please note, there are people who follow along that just chirp up.
I will do so more frequently as it really is worth it to read your report(i'm only on page 137...)
Thanks to you and Elge for your efforts in making this a world class RR, people all over the globe are watching/reading etc.
It's easy to read along and enjoy, and forget to 'like' the posts. I find myself guilty of this once and awhile.
Thanks Paul for sharing - over and over - your story is always fresh and wonderfully photographed, and perfectly written.
I wanted to hit the Like button a few more times on the last report.
Keep reading Reed to like on there, have you read any of Paul’s other threads? All good reading,
Forgot to reply to this - we are in the same basic area he is missing in, he was riding from Puno to Lima we were riding the opposite direction, but if you put that on google maps and zoom in the options for tracks (he's on a DRZ) are almost limitless. I spoke with his sister and told her we would look and ask around, but we have had nothing positive. She messaged me back and told me now Interpol is on the case, but yet to turn up any leads that was about a week back...will keep looking,
really hope he is just in a Puebla drinking Pisco sours and there's just no wifi, it is a DRZ and his stator could have fried so he could be stranded, a common problem
I have read a few pages of his other reports but you can bet your bottom dollar i will be catching up on all of them.
I need to like more of his posts as i tend to read them and then hurry to the next installment.
Am watching this thread very closely now , as it is just one of the best RR's i have ever read!!!!!!!!!
I was just informed he has been found, not too much detail but i was sent this link - https://www.facebook.com/1426570984304163/photos/a.1625163007778292/1968294900131766/?type=3&theater
