For sure me thinks.

We named a recent corgi pup to our family 'Bongo'.

He just reminds me of Terry and built like a Bongo.

Never fails to amaze me that in this day and age people still show such kindness and generosity to a traveler.

Colbatch wannabe? or ?????

Time to SH** or get off the pot-----we were anxiously awaiting the Princess and are suspicious now that the mention of the two dutch girls is a diversion----Are we going to see pictures of these girls or are they figments of Wesley's imagination as he strives to be like 'the Master"---the one and only Colbatch?
Time wil tell---but the guy does know how to hold our attention---doesn't he?

As i mentioned i am currently at work on a oil platform where i work 12-14 hour days so i am very limited to free time after i have finished my working day and computer access is limited, Im not trying to get/hold anyones attention i am simple just to busy right now to blog

When i am not at work i travel alot so sorry if i am not able to blog often as i dont work the 9-5 and live/stay in one fixed location, its just the way i live my life........


"are they figments of Wesley's imagination as he strives to be like 'the Master"---the one and only Colbatch?"



I dont strive to be like or want to be like anyone i am happy in just being myself,i have always travelled to remote areas and avoide citys either as a tourist on hoilday or on downtime from work in the countrys (counted the other day and i am currently on 48 countrys) i am at as i find the people more intresting as i mentioned before only this year I started doing this on a motorbike and i found it the best way so i will carry on doing this in my own way and if others think im trying to strive to be like someone eles well thats up to them.

I have read Colebatchs website and that was a deciding factor picking a bike which ended in me picking a lightweight bike with soft bags as why learn the hardway when you can learn form experience, before i read his blogs about his views i was thinking i needed a bigger, more powerful bike which would of ruined or ended my trip im sure as the DRZ gets heavy after dropping it often. I met to many guys who regretted the bigger bike they were on during my trip and wished they had a lighter bike like a DRZ for offroad/track riding

I have read a few blogs where people compare the blog they are reading to others which i feel is totally wrong as each ride report is diffrent in its own way so im not sure why people do this and why judge someones ride report and compare it to another if they are taking the time to write it for others to see....?

"Time to SH** or get off the pot"= Never heard that one before however i am still on "the pot" which is actually a oil rig
Well said. I would've just told everyone to back the fuck off

Mean while there's plenty South America Bar hopping trips to entertain you until Wesley decides to get off the pot.
Go read few of them.

Hey Guy! Do your thing! That's the most important thing in life. As a retired guy from over 30 years in both drilling and production offshore Louisiana, I know where you're coming from. Heck, I've done many trips stateside , that I never even considered writing a blog. Too busy living my own life. But, have done a few and know what kinda time and effort are involved just here in the land of plenty. Don't want to think about being in other countries and getting er done.
When you feel up to writing, do it. When you don't , the heck with it. Go riding and enjoy life.
