Colin and Re,
I'm not sure I can contribute any original accolades that haven't already been expressed. Just wanted to say that I've read every word of your report (just finished it last night) and found the writing to be both engaging and captivating. Thanks so much for taking the time and effort (particularly after some tiring and frustrating days) to share your adventure with us in such an interesting and intimate way. I started reading your trip a few weeks ago and just like a good novel - haven't been able to put it down. Many nights I found myself up way too late - yet some twist or turn (or provocative photo of Re
) kept drawing me in - and I just had to read yet another chapter. Truly - I think this is the very best, most stimulating trip report I've read on ADV rider. Hope you both enjoyed the family reunion and that your families read through the feedback on here and now better understand what a remarkable and heroic feat you both have accomplished together.
