Bellingham to Brazil, not coming back

I Quit my job today, I'm tired of my life here, I think I will ride to Panama, then Colombia, then Brazil...

I do not plan to return home, I have some ideas and we will see where I end up.

Tijuana? Honduras? Colombia and Venezuela!? As P. J. O'Rourke put it "How would your mother feel if she knew
you were doing this? She'd cry. She really would. And that's how you know it's fun. Anything that makes your
mother cry is fun. Sigmund Freud wrote all about this. It's a well-known fact."

I have a motorcycle, a couple of passports, a wad of cash and I speak Spanish. I will
leave March 5th, bomb down the Pacific Coast on Highway 1/101 from Bellingham, WA, to Tijuana where I will spend a couple nights with my good buddy Joel. "You can sleep in the trailer out back dude, if it starts moving at night its because the Mexicans are stealing it!" Then I will ride to Panama and devise a way to cross the Darien Gap in the cheapest way possible.

I heard Colombia is really bad ass with a Motorcycle, I heard Venezuela has really cheap gas, and I heard Brazil
is very large (large=lots of riding). I plan to spend a lot of time in those three countires.

Here is my first couple of photos if you want to see my set up.



Ready to ride

Trip to the hardware store.
