SO....in the continuing saga of on the road repair, Colleen's 'replica' $20 Swiss Watch took a dump....the second hand fell off and got tangled with the others and stopped it from working.





Flipped the back off...h'mm I think I see a way to remove the second hand



fished the offending piece out and watch now works

Hats off to you guys, you have more patience than me. Fumigation $2.00 was it Holy water they splashed on the tires? If there was a clearer way of doing the border crossings with all the paperwork filled out before hand it might make the journey more pleasant, but this sounds like a bit of riding within a daily visit to the DMV.

This is Colon only a block away from where we are staying. I have never seen an area as bad as this. It is not really inhabitable yet there are people everywhere. It looks like all of these buildings were in a fire at one time and afterwards, people moved into them. I wanted to be discrete with taking these pictures. I could have shown you much, much more but there were people everywhere, hanging out of windows, sitting all over the streets. James and I stood out. They were all watching us. I couldn't really hold up my camera and take pictures. The first building isn't that bad. The second picture depicts what was the norm.

Thanks for following us!!!
I don't think we will have wifi on the sailboat.......
That means possibly five days with no reporting....... I will leave our SPOT on while on the sailboat so that you can track us on the water.

Your mileage may vary, everyone's experience and tolerance level is different.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, me, my cousin, you too.

monkey-butt is an awesome rider and good people. He rode from Calgary to Los Angeles on a 250cc to see us, now that's FAMILY STYLE
