Party too hearty for a Viking? No problem. That's why God invented bail bondsmen.

I heard a rumor regarding anything-goes, five-dollar-lapdances at the local titte bars...

From servers malfunctioning that lost most of the pics, to me having to delete original journals to keep my publisher happy, this thread is in considerable disarray. Myself and a few of the mods though, have resurrected much of what was first posted here into a much easier to read version here.

National Geographic made an interesting documentary of the South American leg.

My girlfriend and I are traveling around the world on one KLR650. We are in Baja Mexico and heading south to argentina. Do you have any advice for Columbia or other countries? I am worried about Columbia after hearing what happened to you. We always look for free camping and go on the roads less travelled.

I'm sure SV has tons of great advice, you can also check Radioman's current RR, he's in SA now http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=689134

Just went back over the first three pages of the version linked above. Everyone loves a beautiful scenic shot of mountains, deserts, playa, jungle...but I find myself drawn to the people pictures spending more time studying the faces, the smiles, the gestures, the lips, the hair, the eyes...my goodness...the eyes! Maybe it's because we search for a common denominator in people who look very different from ourselves. Most enjoyable.

From what I hear, Colombia has been safe for many years now because the major rebel groups have either disbanded, (ELN) or are in serious negotiations with the government. (FARC) It is my understanding that kidnapping have been renounced by all. Colombians are about the nicest people you'll meet anywhere, with premier doses of culture and scenery.
Good luck amigos.

Locked Up Abroad

Just found your episode on Net Flix. Interesting to watch it again. After reading your response above, it is interesting how a decade can change things.

Thanks amigo. A lot of people wrote to me saying they saw my show on Netflix too, but I could not find it. What was it listed as?

Glen, Hi!

On netflix, it's under Locked Up Abroad, which 65bmwr50 put in the title of his post. Probably you can't see that if you're using tapatalk or on your cell phone.

Here's a link to Locked Up Abroad on Netflix. Click on Number 4 in Season 1, Columbia, and you'll come up on the screen.

LOCKED UP ABROAD

Besides that, hope you're doing well.

Hugs,



Liz (from Vermont)

I am alive and well amigo and thanks for your concern.

I wrote this for my FaceBook page but you guys might like it too.

To fully develop as human beings we must venture beyond conventional education and push the limits of our existence past the suffocating mundane. Identify the impossible--then challenge the boundaries of logic.

Climb a difficult mountain, train for a world-class event or travel under arduous circumstances into the unknown. To taste the music of the wind we might have to sacrifice a romance, skin our knees, suffer hunger or break a bone as the magic of the universe feeds our collective souls.

Disregard the odds as you push the envelope beyond what others consider wise and you will flourish with a rare, profound energy that is only experienced when boldly leaping outside of your comfort zone.

No matter the mishaps along the way, stagger back to your feet and keep on swinging, bruised knuckles and all. A delicious victory awaits those who persevere. Awake and feel the pulse of your destiny as you discover that you are the world’s greatest everything.
