you know i'm based out of PHX when I'm in the US?
I'll be back there so next time for sure, leave was a little bit hectic to say the least
Yes you do!
A couple of thoughts Paul,
This is a very interesting bit of information. I'm sure you are planning on it, but please go into this in more detail when you write up your build thread.
Also, I want to thank you for your continuing patience and willingness to help others, through this and other web sites as well as in person. I know that you have helped me significantly a couple of times. Usually indirectly, but a couple of times personally. I very much appreciate it and am sure others do as well.
Yes, El Mirage I understand, I'm next door in Waddell.
Wow, 5 billion inches already?!?
El Salvador was Fkn A!
+ 1 on traveling slow, i would like to think no more than 150 miles per day. i get up when i feel like, so around 9 am departure and would like to start looking for a place to sleep by 4 pm. that really gives me 6 hours on the bike.
biggest temptation is trying out the local food, i surely want to eat. if i can keep it below $20/day that will be the ticket.
Reptile speed to you. Wondering how world nomads works in the USA if you get a chance. That is what holds most back......health insurance and associated rules
I reckon the container home in LA can wait.. hahahaaaa! Good on you Paul. I can't wait to see how that ktm holds up.. And wish you best of health, as everything else you already seem to have!
Looking at your little map I see 3 routes across Mongolia, I can't remember if you've already been there?
What a beautiful ending to your SA adventure. Can not wait to see the 500EXC-F build (my dream bike).
Hope you have had a good time back in the states while preparing for the next stage of you trip.
Thanks for another set of beautiful pics along with visual dialogue, the traveling info is just the icing on the cake or cherry in the drink if you prefer .
150 miles/ 241 km is a big day, way more than I like to do, for reference - https://rtwpaul.com/route/
I think it all comes down to if its more for riding or seeing stuff or a combination of the two, I prefer to start later and finish earlier than you are thinking unless there is a need for a long day.
Leave by 10 or 11am and arrive by 1 or 2pm is usually a good days ride.
I certainly don't like to leave to chance to have to search for a place to stay if there is an hour or less of daylight remaining, mainly because there might not be a place then it might mean heading to the next town or trying to find a wild camping spot, both not easy in the dark.
Preferring to stay an extra day at each place if possible, so then get the chance to see it in daylight and at night time. This can also be achieved with my time frame as well with only a one night stop, of course, YMMV
It works but only 100 miles straight line distance from your registered address on your policy, and before you start thinking...well I could just put it as a friends address at a state where I'm not headed, they now require proof of residence before a claim can be settled, just something to consider.
All being well you should see it in person as I'm looking at NC as a start point for the next leg
I was in Mongolia 2014, the northern route was flooded and the southern route was full of traffic returning from the Naadam Festival this is why I'm looking to do three crossings to see the country in its entirety
I'll be in Sweden or close to it in 2020 so come check out the build yourself in person
So is NZ back on the list at some point again (looking at your map?)
Yes, please come visit
When, where? Started the new thread already?
