Thank you doesn't seem to be enough, but that's all I've got.

Thanks for taking me vicariously to a part of the world I may never see in person.

Amazing report! Thanks so much for bringing a part of the world I'll never get to see first hand to my computer screen. The pictures are great and Fred is the MAN keeping on keeping on with that ankle.
Again, Thanks for your work on this and sharing it with the rest of the world.

Unfreakingbelievable- You guys epitomize the "Adventure Riders"
Well done on all accounts. Your introspection and sharing your pasts with us was priceless....I hope others can learn by your example.
Are you interested in presenting an Angola-Adventure slide show tour of the US? I'd chip in some $$....KTM should chip in.

I think it would be cool (and an excuse to keep going) if we get a post-mortem (so to speak) of the ride... just something to tell how Fred is doing, any interesting damage to the bikes, what happened at home while you were making the rest of os jealous... that sort of thing.

It's been an amazing ride, and I thank you very much for bringing us all along. It's things like this that really make a cager like me look that much harder for a good bike, and hope like hell for that callback so I can have the time and money to do something like this.

Thank you.
