Just finished up with a little catch-up reading, My, what an adventure, absolutely beautiful, and I could almost feel the the heat That jump at the Taj Mahal... could almost see the slinging sweat beads.

So, I presume you are winding it down over there now; heading back to Portland for some R&R?

Finally caught up

Wow. My company is napping so I finally got the chance to catch up on the ride Mark. It's wonderful. The photos you choose are incredible showing such flavor of life there. I appreciate you sharing this journey with us, I know how much work it is to keep it all up to date, especially with the slow Internet upload speeds..... Safe travels on through your next chapters...LJ

I don't recall what's next in "our" adventure. I say "our" because each and everyone of us is riding along with you .
I can only guess what next will be even more spectacular.

If you come out MoBills way, I will try my best to get to meet you in person. I am sure everyone of your followers feels the same way

Portland in July for about a month before heading back to Quito, Ecuador to pick up my bike and keep riding south

Will be riding Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. Then boat trip to Antarctic. Basic plan is this before until the end of the year. That is about as far as I can plan right now...... Just enjoying this Journey!

Sam! So glad you hosted Frank and Petra whom I met in Panama. They really enjoyed it!

Gathering my thoughts on India

Will post up some thoughts about riding in India and what a great time I had.

But forgot to post a couple photos that made me laugh. On my way back to Delhi after visiting the Taj Mahal.

We were driving back on the main hwy and I see the bus up ahead..... Hummm what's up.



As we are passing, this little guy was getting ready to pee from the bus. The driver and I had a good chuckle. I'm sure others on the bus needed a stop as well.



And his dad was proudly watching :)

Just another experience in India!

It was no problem! I enjoyed it and so did my family Hannah and Min. Petra is so funny. Since they don't post to ADV last I heard they entered Canada following my laid out route having a god-ole time. I would like to come over to Portland to visit (catchup) with you, but I am committed to a couple of rides then. I have the 15th thru the 24th open; are you going to be around then or should I bow-out? Email me...

Sam,

Lovin the ride report. My son and I have spent many evenings starting from the front and catching up. I feel like you are someone I have known for a long time now. Your perspective, and insight on things is really cool. The trip looks awesome thanks for taking us along. Hope to see you in PO town when you are here. Been wanting to get to a meet up so hopefully you will make one when you are here.

Chris

I'm impressed that you've seen so much.

But what really impresses me is finding the uber-KLR rider in - India!
