Merry X-mas and happy New Year!
Good to see things are still going well for you. I'm trying to catch up with David's ride report and have talked to Nick a bit via e-mail. Still need to review his updates.
I'm not lying when I say EVERY single day, I think about my trip and want to do it again.... Doubt I can do next fall, but the fall after will be South America.
BTW, I was in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (yes, laugh away), and I saw a guy riding a KLR, no studs, and -22 with windchill near -30 Celsius. Roads were iced to shit. That guy had balls I couldn't even comprehend. Dec 28th.
