Dad Died

Dudes and Dudedettes, faithful readers.

I learned this morning my Dad died. His heart could not take his injuries. My brother's wife Lucy is a nurse and my brrother also works at the hospital. They assure me he received absolutely the best care possible.

So, today I did NOTHING. I met two young men Jason and Marshall who are staying in the same Hotel I am in Zipolte MX.They are hitchhiking the same route I'm riding. Very nice upstanding smart young guys. Today we did NOTHING. Nice after 8000 kms on the bike. I needed a day off,.In Marshall's words we came, we saw, we did NOTHKedgiING

Pictures to follow!

Thank You so much

I want to thank all of you for your kind words and for thinking of me and my Dad.

I also want to thank all of you who have donated to this ride report so generously.

I know somewhere down the line I will pass it on. Maybe to some less fortunate family this Christmas. At least that's what I have in my head. Maybe it will just go to the few pesos I pass out to little kids like the one's I saw in the square in Oaxaca but, rest assured, you kind donations will do some good

I am stuck in Zipolite Mexcio for two more days....by choice! This is a Tropical Paradise. I am staying with the most kind, generous family imaginable. My two new friends Jason, from Alaska and Marshall from NC are outstanding young men. Marshall went to his room yesterday and came out with a violin. (he carries it backpacking, how cool is that?) and he played.......... MAGNIFICO!

He played gorgeous violin music as we watched the waves on this magnificent beach. How could it be any better? He even played the Mexican and Canadian National anthems. Wow!

I have always been blessed with good friends.

Kedgi

I'm going to post some pictures today, I promise, stay tuned.

Thank you so much Jody, you're an A1 guy. I know we will be friends forever from our chance encounter in Port A. I'm coming back to see you again as soon as I get the chance. Or, we can meet here in Zipolite one day! What an awesome place.

A Prayer for Your Father

I was deeply saddened this a.m. when I opened your report and read of your fathers passing. Just know that even though many of us have never met, we are still connected by common interests, philosophies, lifestyles etc. So my friend, I said a prayer in honour of your father and hope that the next few days of reflection are a comfort to you.

I saw Lobsters and then Shediac and had to keep reading as I'm a former Shediac resident myself (Point Du Chene) ;) Enjoyed reading about your adventures.

I have a Versys which I dream about doing a trip like this on. How is the KLR for this sort of thing?
