Hey Mark, long time reader, first time poster. Thank you so much for this inspirational and amazing journey. You gave me a new adventure to enjoy every day while chained to the desk, and even though we have never met my wife always enjoyed hearing about how my friend radioman was doing on his journey. If you ever come through the midwest, you've got a place in WI to stay.

Out of curiosity, what was the total international mileage? (i know you are still going, just really curious so far).

Thanks again, and happy trails for the rest of the trip!

Welcome Home, Mark!

It seems so long ago that you stayed at the house and we went for that short ride along the Fundy Shore, and then the "Pitcher" incident in Montreal.

I'm going to miss getting up in the morning to see where "Radioman" is.

When you're home and settled for a few days, we need to have a chat - I just need to find my Skype info first.

Take care and ride safe.

C.

Thanks for the Offer... The total mileage for the trip so far is about 90,000 Miles (150,000KM) 59,000 on the F800GS so far. More stats as I wrap up the trip..... Just trying to figure out how best to present it!

Friday I met up with Mike to go to Jay Leno Show. Then we headed over to the Studio.



Then Got through Security and our order in line.... We got there at appointed time, but lots of people in front of us!



After waiting an hour... We got into the Studio ,.... Back Row



Was good to go see the show, unfortunately they must have deleted all the emails you ADV riders sent in

Then I rolled back through the heavy LA traffic to the Hotel to meet up with Hells alien . Al was on his way back up to Portland from Baja. We had dinner, and he is carrying my heavy gear, camping stuff back to Portland for me

We had a good time catching up at the local Mexican restaurant.... then updating computer stuff as I got my iPad mini replaced by Apple for it's faulty screen. But needed to get it all restored. Looks like it will be a trip to Apple Store later today!

Staying in LA with Mikes family and then hitting the road tomorrow to ride to SD to meet up with JohnyDakar and Lisa Before heading east to Tucson for Thanksgiving day.

Still jet lagging a bit, but will recover soon.


Thanks for all the Posts, PM's, emails, texts, calls..... Feeling the love!
