Just got busted for using a copyrighted phrase. So Mike - you DO have a local empanada store near you, right? We had a blast spending time with you & Kim, and almost as much fun reading your blog. I can't wait for your next trip. A toast to the two of you also. Cheers. Matt & Louise

Great report you two!

I'm going to assume, from the lack of penguin pictures, that South Africa is now on the drawing board. They have those flightless birds there ya know.

2 plus 2 adds up to Africa... seems perfectly logical to me.

George,

We're heading out on the TAT this summer with fellow ADVers Frostbit and Mrs. Frostbit this summer, but we haven't figured out anything beyond that.

We haven't been to Africa or Australia yet, nor have we ridden in Asia. The world is a big place. We have the New England winter to think about it though...

Mike and Kim

GPS Helmet Cam Stuff

Going through the GPS helmet cam stuff. Just for the fun of it, here's some unedited so you can see the GPS in action. Hope this works. Should have location and atitude. Here goes...



If you want to see the altitude feature work, go here:

http://contour.com/stories/riding-pa...-volcano-lanin

I recommend that you make the screen full size because it makes the altitude data move to the upper left hand corner of the page. It's a cool little gadget, but not accurate for reasons you'll quickly see.

Enjoy!??

Please provide the royalty payment in person at the NH location. Margharitas served upon arrival.

Thank you Mr. Nemec... or should that be Tengoal?

The Contour Hybrid feature is neat. Nice to see mph and altitude thou I'm not so sure the altitude feature is accurate. I like how they leave trees right in the middle of the road. Is that some protected species? (monkey).

Atitude Feature Not Accurate?

What, you didn't see that 900 foot plunge off the cliff we took?

It was clear as day according to the altitude readout.
