Great ride report BTW. I feel the need to say though, putting a donation button in your post is a solicitation. Did you ask for money - no. Did you imply it - absolutely yes. To quote GunSmoke, people do get somewhat "disgusted" when well to do riders on year long vacations riding top tier bikes solicit donations in a world where three quarters of the inhabitants live on less than $5 bucks a day. Nobody wants to fund your vacation. They want you to be adults and fund yourself. It's a self centered act and comes across as a little tacky. I would be too embarrassed to solicit. If I had hungry kids I'd ask. To prolong or fund a vacation, hell no. Put your chin up. South America isn't going anywhere. There's no shame in not being able to fund the ride. If funds are low work a year and resume.
