Will you be going through Goa, India? I have a distant not quite relative there.

Also, if you are getting strapped for cash, hire out as a Taxi, or hell, deliver mail....

Looking forward to your continued adventures!

Go the Dot! Nathan, your footage & commentary cheered me out of a deep funk. Ta for that, and I look forward to checking in on your travels. Best luck on the Iranian visa. Send her!

Most of us know that Nathan's strapped for cash whilst he broadcasts his regular updates detailing his (sometimes bizarre) exploits. So, Nathan mate, have you got a paypal email so any advriders can put some dough your way? The advrider bunch are pretty generous on the whole especially when it comes to helping a fellow rider who's so obviously big-hearted! I, for one, want to see you making your way back via Morocco

Guys, as much as I am extremely touched by the offers of cash I couldn;t possibly accept. I came to this site to share my journey with a community spiked by the same passion. So far it's proven to be the best decision I've made on this trip. You guys are riding with me, watching my back, that's enough. Just being reading your comments and advice is funding me in far more fabulous ways than money ever could.

If you want to buy us a beer when me and Dot go stateside that'd be cool.

I'm just sat screwing together all the loose ends before my flight this afternoon and thought I'd hit record; (relax; not as long as the last one)

Thanks Nathan for sharing all of this with us
First thing I have to do when coming to the office is to check about Nathan and Dot hoping everything is going all right for the next stage of their journey.
Your story is truly inspiring.

Damn....I thought I was feeling pretty rugged tackling China on a 200 CC bike. Nathan and Dot make me look like a wimp. Good on you mate, keep up the great ride. Also be sure to ride safe in India. The problem with a slow bike ( sorry Dot ) is that traffic will keep flowing up behind you. So in essence you are watching for danger from in front, as well as in the back.
Really like your videos, you have inspired me to try some of my own...

Checking it every night.

Hi Nathan,

Im checking your progress every night too.

If you strapped for cash,I have an idea that may help.

Im keen to get my hands on one of those postcards that your sending out. Perhaps just a simple one, that you can send to everyone explaining what your doing, where your going and a bit about dot. Sign it and send them out.

Set up a Palpal account, and for your troubles I'll send you $25 Aus. If you get a few others interersted, Im sure there will be then you can help fund your progress a little. Im sure not a lot of us are rich but we can prob send a little your way to help.
