Your comment, Gene, about taking the time to see things reminded me of a six week trip my girlfriend and I took through Europe on bicycles many years ago. Because we had a plane to catch in Vienna on a given day and time there were some things we passed by, telling ourselves "we'll see that when we come back, and we WILL be back!" But we never went back. Never left the States again. I know you guys had to speed through Costa Rica etc to make the SteelRat, but I do believe you guys will indeed return, and I think that it is a wonderful thing that you have the mindset and the time to take it slow and easy and see and do all that you want/can along the way. Bravo!
