The drawings are awesome! Great to see the inspiration that you have created just by sharing your trip with others.

Fantastic pictures by the kids!!

I think you should auction them off for a good cause.

Or frame them and decorate your den.

Not sure I can part with them.... And of course right now I am "homeless" so not den available. Looks like storage for them, but I have all the photos with me.

Radioman,

Loving your report, keep up the good work. You have done a good job of choosing some colorful, entertaining riding partners. I am sure that has added to your enjoyment of your trip.

Can you elaborate on your plans for India? Are you going to purchase or rent a bike when you get there, or are you shipping one of your bikes?

Making any changes in your gear for the India trip?

How did your electronics like your phone and laptop hold up in South America? I imagine it was really humid.

He has inspired many of those kids. I told them they could write a quick note to Radioman on the back of their picture. The word " inspiring" showed up more than once. Also, they are very happy to hear that Radioman and others, are enjoying their paintings.

Hola Pachap.

Good Questions: First Why India. I have always wanted to visit the Himalayas and after meeting CJ while he was on the International Friendship ride here in the states, it just made sense to me that this would be a place I wanted to go and ride.
Since the weather in South America (Ushaia) was going into winter months, it just made sense to me to use the "extra" time I had to go ride someplace that was highest on my priority list. So I am. Seize the moment and the opportunity to live my dreams.

I will fly over and either Buy or Rent a bike. Right now this will probably be a Royal Enfield. But that will be part of the fun, exploring and checking out options.

My thoughts originally was to go to India, Nepal and Bhutan, but have since found out that to get a multiple entry Visa for india for trips outside of India for less than 2 months require a special visa, which needs to have specific Itinerary that you must follow to the T. So Will not be able to do this :( Save for another trip.

My gear for India will be changed. Since I am flying over,and only staying a couple months. I will travel as light as possible. Giant loop bag is all I will carry with my gear. Wear my riding gear onto the plane, and if I need anything else, like tools etc. Buy them upon arrival to India. Other than that.... Will let you know

My laptop and cameras did Ok for the first 9 months. I had an underwater camera mounted on my bike that was dying, then I lost it while riding. The phone I did not turn on for 7 months. No need to have one, with Skype of the computer to call friends and family.

The last bit of news it that MOBILL will be joining me for the first few weeks in India We were chatting online one day months ago, and I was talking about my plans to go to India. The conversation when something like. I am now planning on going to India. MoBill, "Oh, I always wanted to ago to India" ... OK so join me MoBill "do not want to invite myself into your ride" No problem with me. So MoBill got online started his Visa process, checked tickets, then got final Ok from his family..... Will meet him in Delhi

Dates still up in the air until I get my visa back, which will hopefully be next week!!

I am really excited about this next part of my ride. CJ has given me a "rough" ride plan, but I am studying the maps and reading to help me fill in the blanks. All part of the logistics and fun of a ride like this.

Just some more Artwork to be appreciated.

This one is titled "the Triple scoop" by Vanessa as she is the only passenger that my F800GS has had. We road to here school together! Precious experience for Radioman!



Connecting with Mrs S 4th grade class. Sharing my story, and the adventure unfolding.



Out among the Saguaro Cactus in Tucson



This impressionist drawing on my day on the Espinoza de Diablo (spine of the devil) where I was very sick with food poisoning and needed a 30 minute nap in the median at the gas station before riding this road!



Riding the great roads into Medellin Colombia



Another "road Kill" artwork



One of the many colorful markets.



It truly has been an amazing gift for me to have these pieces of Artwork!!

Wow

Radioman and All,

I have spent the last 3-4 days reading your report, investigating some of your highlights, and enjoying your point of view. The way you convey your feelings and the lengths you go to in an effort to be thorough is engaging to say the least. I can tell you without any shadow of a doubt this RR is why people gravitate toward the ADV community.

I am on my last stint in the Mid-East and have my trip south paid for but far from planned. I wanted to say thank you for your efforts from this corner of the world.

Now, where can I get a "I miss Radioman" sticker because I am about to go into withdraws!

RF8

My time at home has been very social. Surprised ?

Lots of time meeting up with friends for Coffee and food! Thankful for friends and am grateful for time to get together and catch up! And some really Yummy Food too! Thanks Suzanne and Paul



Went out to dinner and Ice cream with a friend. This one is posted for Young James. He loves Ice Cream and this was really good!



Then Friday took off to an ADV gathering outside of Brookings Oregon. Rode down with NoPo (Christa) and had a little Clam Chowder at Mo's in Florence.



Saturday had a beautiful Sunny Day and rode down along the California Coast and through the Redwoods.... Always a great ride





Stopped for a Burger in Ferndale before riding the Lost coast with SR1Marks, PDXscott, asrvivor, and Christa.





Into the Redwoods.








Just amazing to enjoy the beauty of this giant Redwoods....




And right before I left my package arrived .....



Yup India VISA approved!! and my Flight has now been booked to India!! Will be leaving May 15th!




On a special mission...... Will be reporting back Monday night......
