I have followed from the beginning. I read more than I comment.

congratulations on your achievement and look forward to the rest of your journey

I agree that it is the people you meet along the way that makes for good memories,
and it's nice to have friends all over the world

Hey Mark! We (GSWayne and two other friends) were just in Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia Dec. 1 and 2. I was keeping my eyes open for you in the various towns in Patagonia, but our schedules did not overlap.

Did you see the little black and white dolphins (Commerson's dolphins) on the ferry crossing on the Strait of Magellan? We saw several -- very cool!

Congrats on your amazing journey and I look forward to your continuing adventures!

He was a great guy that I had the pleasure of meeting and riding with on several occasions. His passion for ride and coffee were clear. So sad for him and his family for the great loss that have had.

Radioman....You're a cool guy. I think you could teach me a lot.

If you ever make it to Southern New England, please consider staying with me & my family. We'd be honored to have you. No expiration date on this invitation

Since you're clearly a food guy, of course, dinner included on the deck

Would like to shed some light on this nugget " But I also know that our fears are most often greater than the reality of what will happen." I will quote this line often as it pertains to coaching, parenting, and daily obligations of a Visionary Philosopher,

Love what you're doing, doing it right !!!


OK, caught up, really good stuff. Love the videos, love the music, love the views of life as it unfolds. Thank you for all the work you put into this, many are benefiting.

(although I feel that this goes both ways, and the sons might not have joined him on the ride)

I like the video. Watching it was a great way to start the day. It always makes me smile seeing my friends out enjoying life.

Love every post Mark. It is now my nightly routine when I come home to check on your adventures!

I know you have offers coming out your ears but if your travels find you in Perth, Western Australia, you are welcome to a room, beers and good cheers, along with a reasonably stocked garage for the GS if needed!

Stay safe!
