Greetings Fellow ADV Rider enthusiasts. You may be following mi amigo, Paul S's posting's here under the title "Go Motor Goes South" where I have been adding commentary from time to time. Now that we have arrived in Cartagena I have decided to start my own ride report rather than intrude on Paul's. We do have a different perspective on things at times. The reason for my title is that we are old guys. I am 63 and Paul is, well, somewhat older than me. It is not for me to say how old he is, but I just want to assure you that Paul expects no special treatment for the number of birthdays he can count. It is nevertheless a factor in how we approach this epic journey. You may have noticed a bit of a dearth of photos on the other report. I will do my best to improve on that. The challenge there relates to the very old IPad I brought with me. It is incapable of airdrops from my phone, which is my primary photo taking device. I will try to keep my iPad handy for pics in the future. Another factor is the deadline we had with the Stahlratt. We were somewhat under the gun to get to Panama and taking photos suffered as a result. I hope I will be able to offer some useful and interesting content here. Feel free to critique my reporting as I want to make this a good read for all.
