Day 29-32

Check out our adventures in Cartagena and Medellin (and points in between). So far our only regret is that the trip is almost half over!

Friends and Family,


We've made the jump to Ecuador now. Join us as we finish off our time in Colombia and visit Quito - the highest capital city in the world.

great ride report

Just as I sorta expected....a great ride report and so enjoyable to read.
Those should be memories to last a lifetime and totally price-less. Thanks for doing this for the rest of us.

Our pleasure, Gary. Thanks for following along.

We're in Banos, Ecuador now and we love the place (both the area and Hostel Chiminea). We'll probably spend an extra night here.

Day 39-41

Friends and Family,

We're both feeling really healthy this morning as we move into Day 42. Something about visiting Baños didn't quite agree with our stomach (don't ask me about the irony of this).

If there is anything we're not writing about please let us know on the Smug Mug site and we'll include this in upcoming ride reports.

In any event, check out our recent travels at.....

Great Pictures!!! I love my 09 KLR. Do your KLRs burn a lot of oil? Again. Awesome pictures!

We only burned a total of 4 qts between the two bikes and we've put on about 9,000 miles now. We do tend to burn more oil at high speeds in the heat.

Day 54-56

Friends and Family,


After completing Day 56 we're still doing fine. It's a little hard to top Machu Picchu and the floating islands of Lake Titicaca so the latest installation of our ride report is somewhat brief. In any event, thanks for your interest and support of our adventure.
