Touring TedMagnum

I know many of us have enjoyed Ted's musings here and know that he's currently in South America living his dream. I hope he doesn't mind me posting it here, but you might want to read about his crash. He's OK, but the blog makes for a good read.

voices got it wrong....

Hi there Ted,
the way they·ve spelt devilishly.... devil sihly + .... makes me wonder if You ought to trust these voices? I mean who wants to look "devil sihlly"? Perhaps You should go back to wearing earplugs? Lol...

Thoroughly enjoying reading daily about your where and howabouts. Making me hear voices too, saying: get on out there and do some serious riding!
Keep it coming Ted,
Cheers,
Dan

Take it easy on the ripio!

Glad you're ok Ted. The exact same thing happened to us in the 1st 2 weeks when my g/f somersaulted her bike nr Gobernador Gregores. We both started the trip off very cocky and going way too fast on the ripio and I also remember hitting 70mph down in TDF. I think we ended up averaging about 30-40mph on the ripio later on in the trip once we found out how dangerous it could be.

Keep the sticky side down!
