Glass? What glass?

Thought the thunder was unusually loud last night..



Taken right outside the room this morning. Yep. Bucket list item.

Nice coating of ash on the bikes...



We've decided to stay here another day so hopefully we can get a decent night shot - if it doesn't go all Pompeii on us.

My wife and I were in Equador in '07 to climb Cotopaxi. The trip from Quito to the lodge at the base (called Tambopaxi if I recall correctly) was one I'd love to do again on a dual sport. I'd recommend it.

With a little time to kill and enough WiFi to post but not preview this video..



Sitting here you can hear it rumble like thunder in the background as it churns away. Can't imagine the size of the explosions last night to be as loud as they were.

I also like to stop for roadside Trucha (trout) when going through the highlands.

Yes indeed...

A rumbling volcano and do it yourself butcher shop dining sure beats sitting in traffic on a US freeway somewhere!

Yes Virginia... it IS more fun than watching Dancing with the Stars.

Man I miss that place

I did a similar ride in 2011. Tungurahua was making noise at that time as well. I actually did not notice it until I was leaving town heading back to Quito. I made a fantastic friend who runs a bed and breakfast in Cuenca. If you get there and want a great person to rent a room from you can contact her at the email I PM ed to you. I also rented from Freedom.
Another great place to visit is Canoa on the coast. There are a bunch of great hostels.

Thanks for dropping in. Not knowing what the old airport was like I can't make a comparison. I do know you need to bring cash to it even though it is a modern facility. More on that later...if we do this RR thing.

Thanks for stopping by. If you do it get off of 35.

Thanks! That may come in handy for 'ECUADOR: Unfinished Business'. No, Dave, that isn't committment.

Funny you should mention DWtS...

SCS gave up her evening of following along with the 'stars' to pick our sorry asses up at Logan. She's a keeper.

Yes. We're back a little earlier than planned. Fits right in with that rigid flexibility theme.

Bottom line: had an awesome ride!

I'll work on uploading some pics and a few vids. Might even post them up at some point.

Perhaps whizzerwheel will have some time to post up some stuff as well.
