Wow, just fantastic, thanks for taking what must have been a lot of time scanning old photos. That was the same year I took my first big trip, I was 24 and we rode from Atlanta Georgia to the Pacific ocean and back, 6 weeks. I have all those photos in a shoe box, I should scan them!

Almost makes me want to pull out my pictures from 68. I was on my own bike. 12 years old. There was a guy in San Felipe we called "Sam the clam man". He would rent you a bucket and shovel, and we would dig clams. We rode from Cantimar to San Felipe and back. No roads. No bungee cords. No tents. Sleeping bags and a small change of clothes.
No falta nada

Thank so much for taking us along on your epic pre-High-tech Adventure. I know must have taken time to scan all those pictures into the computer (great job) I was living Asia at the time you took this trip.

I keep telling my daughter and friends you don't have to have that smart phone in your hand all the time to have fun. "the back my day.." lecture as my daughter says. You sir made my day. I still use a map, and only like my GPS in a large metropolis, and in Mexico that doesn't work well either .

Funny looking at the pictures I don't see much difference today; architecturally speaking. I thought I saw a Pinto in one of those shots, kinda like seeing a Doo-Doo bird

Again Thanks, enjoyed.

Thanks so much for sharing such an interesting report! It's really cool as a young guy to see motorbike travels from when my dad was around the same age. Really enjoyed it!
