Thanks Amigos

Just back, had a real good time, will post further when I get some zzz in. Learned all the German you need to know, ever. Rene is a good teacher, thanks mate.

Lesson 1 = 'Pils'
Lesson 2 = 'Prost'

That's it, repeat as often as necessary.


Thanks Jens

More to follow.......

Thumbs up Los Amigos - my ride

I've finally got around to writing up the account of my 2000km ride to the Los Amigos Event and the of the new friends I made there

It's a bit wordy, but I just can't help myself, and there are some pictures too.

Most enjoyable pre AWT outing to test out bike and gear.

It's on my blog, here = http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/fairless/
