My First Request for Help

I have two POV.1 video cameras mounted on the bike. One facing forward and one facing rearwards. I had naively thought of posting a lot of cool video to the RR as I progress, thinking I would use my Blackberry as a tethered modem to the laptop. Man, did that turn out to be a bad idea. I had no idea just how messed up the cell phone situation would turn out to be. So, I've abandoned that particular technique.

My second thought was to wardrive my way down (wardriving is intercepting wireless), but that turned out to be a little more complex than I'm willing to endure.

Now, I don't know this first-hand of course, but I keep reading about how crappy the internet cafes are - slow speeds, constant disconnects, no available computers or connections, etc. So... I'm hoping I can hook up with people along the way who have decent connections that I can borrow to get the vids up. I won't know how I'll be able to repay, but I'm sure we can work something out. Any volunteers?

Or am I wrong about my perception?

connections aren't terrible. I was able to get solid connections at 90% of the internet cafes we stopped at- both to download videos and to upload pictures.

I'll see you on the slow boat for Colombia unless I get messed up coming down there, Oct 23 is the date if I remember right.

Carry on and good luck with it.

Riding a motorcycle all the way to SA seems a bit extreme just cause the sex change operations are cheaper down there.....or so I've heard, but whatever.

Well, For what its worth, I know you said Argentina, or rather Uishia (SP?) you planning on running through Chile at all?

If you keep your mitts off of her (or post some good pics) I may be able to hook you up with someone. She and I met when I was in the Corps and we were down that way. Anymore, I shan't say, other then to say that she and her brother now run an Outdoor Adventure Deal.

She is a great girl (and hot) with some hot friends. Speaks English and is a blast to be around (and hot).

Let me know. I'll hit her up on this here inter-webby thingy and see if she can help out, or if I can get a good connection for you to hit her up when you get down that way...

Chilean chicks rock, I liked it more then Argentina and Colombia. But that's just me..

Let me know.

BASTARD!!!!!

drrags,
I'm leaving Seattle tomorrow morning, almost the same story, no itinerary, no time constraints. Just going to head south until the road ends. May see you on the road.

Gary
