Hey Radioman

I've been lurking this thread for quite a while. I really enjoyed reading your stories and seeing photos of your travels. A true inspiration!

I wish you the very best for the future!

Love The Chapters of Life

We often resist the turning of the pages of life because of the comfort we have in staying in the same chapter. But that is not how a book gets read or a life lived. I know when college ends, children are born, loved ones lost, that we are sometimes forced into the next chapter.

Most of the time, we would prefer the comfort of no change. I can't tell you how much I have grown as a person when I had to deal with "forced" change. Much like when it's time for eaglets to fly the Momma eagle actually brings rocks and sticks into the nest purposely making it uncomfortable for them to stay.

Mark, you have shown me (and us in ADV community) that turning the pages to the next chapter is life and to embrace it! The safe move would have been to stay in the nest back home, but somehow or someway your nest was stirred to enable you to fly off for adventure. You my friend are a true adventurer...............

ps - pm me whenever you head through AZ, let's ride!

Thumb Thanks Mark

Thanks for allowing us to follow along with you on this chapter of your life. The friends you have made, the lives you have touched, across the globe, priceless. Owing you so much more then a handshake and a pat on the back for a job (chapter) well done. Mark when in Los Angeles, please contact me, my offer still stands, if a dinner, a bed, or airport pickup, suits you. Or any level of assistance, just ask.

Onwards & upwards!

WOW Thanks for all the kind comments. I will reply to them in the week ahead.... But I am out the door to go ride making the most of my time here. off to the north of Cape Town to the Cederberg. Should be a great ride and big Braai!

Quick Update but lots more for early next week!

More of this. Love the signs.....



Last few days exploring the coast.



Last weekend we rode down to the most Southernly point of Africa at Cape Agulhas. It is always fun to get to these kinds of "destinations" .... And love fantastic photos from LILY!! So great to have these pics!



Had to ride past the barricades to ride the last 150M down the past, over the rocks to the Sign.... Just must be done.



Had to wait in line..... chatting with the other visitors!



Made it to the most southernly point of Africa!!



with Jorg and Lily! What a treat they booth have been!



A jump you say!! Two women from Mussell bay were laughing hard as I did my jumps!!








where Radioman now? Lots of giggles from the crowd!




Then to celebrate arriving at this southern point.......... Why not! a jump of all jumps!! (Jorg says " Front Page" right there!
(no photoshop involved)







Cannot help but share a few more Lily photos. They are great!


Quite breaking the rules.





Radioman Fan club




Two guys discussing the ship wreck!







Lily has a great sense of humor too.

Like the rest, sad to see your report ending but interested to see how the next chapter starts! If you need anything or someone to buy you lunch near San Luis Obispo on your trip up the PCH feel free to drop me a line. I live just south of SLO.

Radioman,
The last time I posted was not long after you passed thru the Texas panhandle and it was 107 degrees, I think. Look what has happened in your life since. Its been very special keeping up with your adventure. Looking forward to more as your life continues with this great sport of motorcycling.
Blessings,
Bob

What??!?

I go out of town for a few days and come back to the end of the journey?

And what an amazing journey it has been!

Thanks so much for taking us along:

We moved from Orcutt down to Buellton. Bigger house within walking distance to brewery and winery. Lots of good riding and bicycling around here. You are welcome any time!

Sandy and Dana
