Hey Jeff - I can't believe you're still on the trip! We returned home on September 3rd and after 3 days I was totally plugged back into the rat race and forgot we had even ridden to Panama and back!!!...I'm glad we took lots of pictures to refresh my memory.
Isn't the vibe a bit different when you're heading north? Even going through new parts of the same country, it's somewhat weird to say goodbye to a county...and places where you swear you'll come back with a hoard of friends (Roatan comes to mind), realistically how many years is that going to take? "Home" is overrated!!!....stay on the road as long as you can!!!
