Hey Antihero. I was just catching up with my sister and telling her about the ADVers I have had as guests lately here in Newfoundland. Then she tells me about this guy on a Ducati who stayed with them for a few days. Turns out it was you. My sis is Deanie on Penmerryl farm. She spoke highly of you.

Things with docs going in the right direction.

As for you, damurph--what a coincidence! I just spoke to Deanie via email right before they were about to set off to FL to pick up their sailboat. So happy to hear that they sold half the farm and were setting sail around the world. You've got a wonderfu sis. Was really hard to leave the farm.

amazing

I have followed your story off and on over the past year. I think we started our journeys about the same time from the same county.....The OC.
Your story is aspiring.
I have got myself in to trouble along the way on my ride but my issues have been nothing like the ones you have endured.
After finishing North and South America, I am now over here in Europe. And I have to say, if there is a way, I would get you at the supermodel over here.
The roads are like nothing else in the world. I am currently in Andorra and the ride here was amazing.
And I am no doctor, but I can't think of any better medicine for you.
If you make it across the pond, look me up and let's ride

Limited to 7 characters here in CA. ANTIHRO was taken (and always reminds me of "AntiHerro" as pronounced by Kim Jong Il in Team America), so I went with the closest I could get. Not really a fan of personalized plates, but I did it anyways.

Flyingdutchman--I've read your story, too, and even posted on your thread a while back if I recall. Thanks for the push for Europe and the 202 pages--I mean reasons--to keep movin'.

Hey Anti I know you really dug that ride in Dr J's GT3, if ya got an extra $60K laying around maybe you can pick this one up. Hard to tell its overall condition from the description, needs a little work..

Very strange condition indeed. Wonder what the history on this car is/was.

Never did get the last bit back to SF.....

Is it abandoned? Been reading for about 8 hours solid and it feels like there is still some unfinished business

You are absolutely correct, Michael. There's unfinished business. Unfortunately a moderator requested I stopped posting updates on this thread, as the 'official' ride was over, so it ends with abrupt lackluster. Shame, too, because there's been some pretty epic shit I would have liked to share--NY with people I couldn't name or post pictures of, lots of great things with the good people at Ducati, MotoGP, track day insanity, another 5,000 rambling miles on the Pani and of course, lots of confusion, despair, awe, revelation, hope and hopelessness. I've continued living out of a backpack for the most part, bouncing restlessly around the west coast while the consequences of this R/R continued to change my life, while I continue to live as fully as I can until I decide what to do when I grow up.

The good news: I started a new "official" ride this morning. What little I still own is again in storage. I've got exactly one bag of gear and one key. I'm sitting in a greasy hotel chair drinking Smirnoff and room-temperature Santa Cruz lemonade listening to Rob Dougan's "Furious Angels." I may smell like sweat-marinated dead bugs and my ligaments and bones reverberate with 9 hours of twin-cylinder propulsion, but I am happy.

A "Pacific NW with an Italian Supermodel" R/R thread will come shortly. Stay tuned....



And SF is still yet to come....

YES!
By the way, why don't you post the other epic stuff onto your blog? Given your style of writing and the things you live there will be many readers, including me.
