Hi Freewheel
I have some friends and known travellers who are coming from UK soon. Come to visit us, share a Coffee, a Cerveza or Mate. Maybe if you are lucky an asado…
We can chat about what you need, find some who will come or find a solution here.
Saludos

Is that Andy and Maya with the sidecar rig?

If so I met you, Andy, at Nortons in Cuzco in June. Where are you heading? I'll be on my way South for x-mas or new year and could bring a can of beanz if I get them through Chilean customs...

Beans urgent

Hi Jens,
yes its us, nice to hear from you. Am in Bolivia again at present but will be visiting Dakar Motos in November and then to the Argentine Horizons meeting in December. twenty thousand miles so far and the sidecars still not fallen off, few other bits have though! Baked Beans (Hienz) would be great if you can manage it, the more the better as we will still be here for a while.
take care, Andy & Maya

Is your mouth watering?

Hi,
We have been trying to email you for ages, cannot seem to get through. Sounds like you are heading back our way. Ring us when you get close.
I have just the thing you are looking for, specially brought from the UK by friends and I knew that you would kill me if we ate them before you got back.
I only have one can but I am sure we can share it between four of us. And John will be in heaven when he finds out he will finally be getting the chance to eat them. Hienz Baked Beans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We even have a bed for you to sleep in.

We have just had a couple of travellers stay with us and are expecting more in the coming months.

Cannot help with the spare parts!!
See you soon
Annette and John

Need to update your location John - doubt people will :-
a) Queue up for a task like that in Camberley
b) Believe your weather forecast

Now if you were in Argentina... ;-)

Very sad news

Hi Andy
I'm Kate who travelled with Jens in South America earlier in the year.
Unfortunately I have some sad news for you. Jens was involved in a serious accident at work on the 2nd November and died from his injuries later that day.
I'm trying to let people know by going through the threads he's added to.
I hope you continue to have a great trip.
Thanks
Kate
