    Unfortunately for me, I am still hanging in Mazatlan jealousy hosting long-riders passing through en route to South America. In the last three months twenty people have stayed over and several more are rolling in this weekend.
    I get a chuckle watching as their journeys begin with fairly fresh motorcycles and then checking them as they limp home on the return leg with worn equipment and so forth. AdvRiders Rock!

    We are just reaching out to any long-riders in Mazatlan who want to spend Christmas together with us. There is a handful of riders here at my house and we are making a dinner December 24 at my house for whoever is in town on their motorcycles.

    wow, what a great kindness to offer! Someone on this thread who I admire greatly shared your post with me. I'm not much of a cook but I can clean and wash dishes like nobodies business.

    And thank you Brian and everyone else who bought my books over the years. Proceeds from those books went to build quite a few schools in Cambodia, Viet Nam and Nepal. :clap

    I've got an autographed copy.

    Following your real-time adventure around the world is without a doubt one of the coolest things ever, and bringing CJ and the rest of the group to the US was simply outstanding as well.

    Happy New Year Amigo!

    This year South America must clogged with motorcyclists from around the world. So far just this season, twenty-three long-riders stayed with me in Mazatlan and surely I missed many more along the way.
    After hanging together for a few days and then watching my friends ride south into unknown but rewarding adventure, I sense a melancholy nostalgia that seems to grow more intense.

    Next year when still pulling zeros on my blood tests means five years cancer-free, which means I’ll be able to roam the earth again without being tethered to an organic food supply.

    In the grander scheme of things, those were only two minor irritations. Diseases that are whatever we let them be. As long as we keep gliding on those waves of positive energy, negativity exists only in our rear view mirrors.

    Glen, I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed reading about your adventures. I only decided to get my first bike at the age of 36, and two years later here I sit in awe of what you've done on two wheels and in your life. Truly inspiring, to say the least.:clap Most of us just dream of the adventures you've seen and the places you've been. I just ordered a copy of "One More Day Everywhere" and can't wait to dive into that! I think it's especially cool and generous that you host south bound riders looking for the kind of adventures you've had, and I hope to one day be one of them. :clap

    Thanks for bringing us along,
    David
