    And today is the day - can't believe it's been 12 years. Much love to Clayton's family. :(:

    Its been 2 years since I was in Ushuaia. What a life lesson to have his story still here as a reminder to live life to the fullest. Thanks for the inspiration Clayton. Your spirit lives.

    All the photos in this report are gone.

    Does anyone have any photos of Clayton or his trip?

    I was going through my t-shirt collection the other day. I have one of those cool orange shirts with the first post on this very thread filling the entire front. I wore it once then he left us. Its been in the archive closet since then. Never met him but loved his ambition and adventurous spirit. Maybe its time to take that shirt on a trip.

    Go, Ozy, go!

    Do it.

    Those that understand what that’s about don’t need an explanation, and those that require an explanation wouldn’t understand anyway.

    Funny you mentioned that. The one time I wore it, it prompted many questions. After a couple of attempts to explain I just said it was an inside thing and if you don't ADV you wouldn't understand. They were Harley riders so...

    I will do it. And just for shits and giggles, I'll only post up images without an explaining the shirt just to see how many here even know what it is.

    Wished I could have met the kid. Damn.
