5 Months from Chicago to Peru

On Oct 1, 2012 I left Thailand and flew to Chicago where the V-Strom I bought on E-Bay was parked at a friends house. Now back in Thailand I am sifting through thousands of pix and video clips and editing the footage of the trip. Instead of one long story it makes more sense to post the segments when ready. Here's part 1:

Chicago to Lima - Grand Canyon - part 2

To see the Grand Canyon for the 1st time was truly awe inspiring. Staying out of big cities we were able to get that true feel of Americana.

The Air Museum in Palm Springs - Part 4

The Air Museum was a real worthwhile diversion. Very interesting and a great bunch of old veterans. They understandably still have so much pride in what was America at its best.

Hey, your mechanic in Chicago/Riverside,IL is my neighbor, Kenny!
(Part1 video 1:20-1:40)

I really enjoy your editing of the still pix with video and music. The still "paprazzi" shots do such a fine job communicating the local "day-in-the-life" culture.

Godspeed!
