Thanks amigo. Remember, all royalties are donated to Room To Read, an NGO building schools in the developing world. There is a ton of positive energy behind this project that so many participated in here on advrider. Many thanks again to everyone here.

I am in Mazatlan for a few more weeks so any long riders passing through on your way north or south, I can offer a room for the night.

Generous offer! I'd offer to ride from Canada to Mazatlan just to hang out with you for a day, but then you'd get a restraining order and things would get all weird....unless you really want me to come!

Hey amigo--
I sold the bike a long time ago so I suppose this is a re-sale. If it is still in perfect running order, its' a great bike for the price.

Ok!

Glen:


Got the book yesterday, looked at the pix & said ,I remember those from Glens ADV RR. I've seen the nat geo film, remember

seeing the interview on 48 Hours after your release, & read the account on ADV

So I know the beginning, the middle, and the end but I flip the book open to page 1, next thing I know I look at my watch & it's 4

AM, both dogs are asleep in the chair, wife has gone to bed & I missed supper . DAMN IT!!!! Sucked in again.

Well, needless to say the book is mesmerizing and once started it can't be put down Love it

Thanks Glen.
Merry Christmas

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the story amigo. Do you guys realize that this book was first published in 2004 and has been regularly selling ever since? TWTT sold in hardback so well that it did not go to softcover until 2010 when ECW Press bought the rights from Whitehorse for international re-release. I purposely don't keep track of the bookkeeping but two years ago, I recall seeing a stat revealing that the new version sold 3,500 copies the first quarter alone.

Same for my second book, One More Day Everywhere, it is still being reprinted twice a year after four years on the market. This is all the result of the power of positive thinking and telling the story not just about motorcycling, but primarily about the fascinating people of our planet.

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
