Dave great to see you made back home safely, Im sure your excited to be back with family and friends.
Youll need some time to readjust back to a normal life, because I know I did.

How did things work out with your shipping weight, and did you remove your front tire?

Good luck with your house search and your new job.

Jeff

For the next two days I'll decompress and then we start house hunting.

I need to go back to Vancouver next week to pick up the bike and I will store it here at a friends place. 5 weeks from now I start my new job here on the Island so we really need to find a place soon. We still have to go back to Edmonton to collect all our furniture and stuff from storage.

Never a dull moment
Dave,If you need a place to stay the night on your way to or from Edmt. you are welcome at our place.Drop me a message.

Stats wrap up

Okay stats nerds, here you go...

Stats wrap up

Well here is the final tally for all the stats of the trip. This is not very scientific but I'd say it's about 95% accurate. There a certainly plenty of things I forgot to document or have the amounts wrong.

I tried to keep track as closely as I could.

A few notes:
I am using $ CAD
The expenses for my Belize break are not included
The Christmas break expenses are not included
Stahlratte not included $950 USD
Air fare and shipping home not included $1500 air fare $1800 shipping

Final trip distance 32,089km

Oil changes: 4

#1 San Cristobal Mexico @ 8,200km
#2 Jaco Costa Rica @ 4,300km
#3 Hanuco Peru @ 6,820km
#4 Coyhaique Chile @ 8,167km

Tires: 2 front tires and 3 rear tires

First set of tires were Mitas E07 NON DAKAR. The rear Mitas was removed in Costa Rica at 12,500km and replaced with a Kenda K761

The Kenda Rear and the Mitas front were replaced in Peru. The front had 20,000km and the rear 7,600km. The new front was a Continental TKC80 and the new rear a Hiedenau Scout K60

By the end of the trip the Hiedenau is ready to be replaced with about 12,000km but the front has some life left in it albiet with lots of cupping.

Replaced parts:

1 set of front brake pads
1 set of rear brake pads
2 Countershaft seals. First replacement faulty
1 set of rear wheel bearings
1 Rear tube. Only one flat the whole trip.
1 rubber spacer for GIVI trunk

Lost stuff:

Hockey puck for side stand lost at Lake Tahoe
Acerbis hand guard bolts x 2
Bicycle led tail light
1 small pad lock
Side panel rubber spacer
Ipod nano and earbuds

Thanks for keeping track of all this, Dave, and breaking it down so concisely...looks like a pretty complete list and I'm very impressed with your discipline in recording all these expenses. Will certainly be of benefit for any one else planning a similar trip...well done!

Great breakdown, and great info for anyone considering a trip like this.
You budget looks pretty basic, on reflection if there was one area where you could have reduced costs where would it have been ?

Thank you

If I had needed to reduce costs I could have done it with food. I ate meals at restaurants most times even when a kitchen was available.

Perhaps some more camping. I only camped 3 times after north america

Question Survival

Dave - When you fell during the water-crossing, did you damage the suit, gloves, boots, helmet, camera, or any other gear? Did you fall at any other time, if so, how did the gear hold up? Did it protect you completely?

And washing the gear, how did that go?

Matthew

The get off was really at a slow speed but I did hit my helmet on the ground. Nothing was damaged other than the pannier and my pride.

Washing the gear involved removing all the padding and merely taking it to the hotel laundry with instructions to use medium heat for both water and drying. I really did not have fun replacing the armour padding but it was worth it to get rid of the stink.

Glad to see you home and all is well. I like the budget thing, but for me I think I would need more beer money!
Enjoy!

Hi

Glad you are home safe. Funny that you and Dan lost the same two things...a small pad lock and a hockey puck! See you this summer in Vic.
