Smitty Gone Rideabout

I'm currently doing a very slow - next 5 years or so - ride around the world.
My beautiful wife - who doesn't ride - is traveling into countries ahead of me, and finding work to support us. Then I use that country as a base to ride through the countries accessible from that base location.

We started out in Big Sur, California. My wife is at our first base country: Italy. Where she is already working teaching English as a second language. I've worked my way across the US and catch a plane in Toronto on July 10 for Dublin, Ireland.

I'll be presenting at the Enniskillen, Ireland HU meeting on July 18-20. My presentation is: Jeff Smith Mexico and the Copper Canyon. You can see it at this link:

Anyone interested in following me can join the open group I've created on Facebook. Just search "Smitty Gone Rideabout" or go to:

Send me a request to join, and I'll approve.

If anyone is planning to attend the Enniskillen, Ireland HU meeting. Please say hello if you run into me.

Well Jeff made it to Ireland and I met him at the HU weekend. Unfortunately his Zumo has given up the ghost so I took him and his lovely wife home to my place and fixed him up with an old Streetpilot 2610 which has full European mapping on it.

Safe travels Jeff.

Don't speak unless you can improve on the silence.
