unstoppable on the same way

Hey Simon

Yes, yes... The mom's and their worries... I also felt a little bit bad, because I live my dream and she has to worry about me at home....

Think now she's fine. She was more afraid about Iran, Centralasia and Russia....

I'm in San-Francisco right now, heading south towards Ushuaia.

Maybe our ways cross somewhere. You can track me on >>> the unstoppables &ndash; we stop at nothing <<<

Hasta luego

Glenn

PS, please use my email to answer me, you'll find it on the homepage

I'm heading that way

Leaving Monday, from Vancouver, BC which I suppose means I ought to start packing soon. built myself some pannier racks yesterday.

I'll be riding to Sacramento, California, then either east in the southern USA, and south in Tx, or the Baja route and then over to Merida to visit family and down.
I'm on a '79 cx500, No set route yet, decide as I go. but I do need to be working on the blog/website a fair bit, which means lots of stops for photo's etc.
I'm going until April/May as well.
I'm a photography student, so I'm getting some credit for the trip report, and doing some online classes as well.
Ideally I was thinking it would be really interesting to go south along the W coast of south America, and north either in the center or eastern side, then back up to the east coast of Canada, and across.

updates

It's been 3 weeks I havent logged in it's crazy as time is flying! It's nice to see ppl getting ready and leaving for an adventure! Myself, I left today, I still don't know where I'm gonna be tommorow but that's ok.


Thank you all for the replies, help and infos, I couldn't have wish for more. I know a few riders coming, I just havent met anyone yet.


By the way, I'm in Whitefish right now and will keep heading South.
To be honest, I don't reallyt care where I'll be entering Mexico, I'd just like to be with other riders when it's gonna happen, so feel free to drop me a line, anyone is welcome to join me (us), you know what i mean... You'll make a happy mom :P Hope to see you on the road!

Updates: I am in Vegas right now and I need to figure out where I'll be entering Mexico. I might need to stay here a few more nights as I need to plan this ahead this time, I havent done that yet

I'd be nice to enter Mexico along with other riders, wherever it might be.

Thank you for your support, greatly appreciated!!

Hey guys

I'm in San Diego right now. Have to make a a bikeservice here on Friday, than I'll enter Mexico on Sunday or Monday.

Would be nice to travel with someone for a while. Since Mongolia I'm on the Road allone. That was OK, but I like the mix of travelling allone and in a group...

So if you're on the way to enter Baja soon, let me know

Glenn

Meet up with the UDRINK

Hey Udrink

Sounds good, do you also drive down the Baja and take the ferry to the mainland?

Can't write you messages

Maybe we'll meet up somewhere.

Good Plan Udrink.
I'm still in San Diego. Had to become healthy and made my bikeservice today. Early next week sounds perfect to me.

Will be nice to drive with someone again. The last 10'000km I was on my own...

Just tell me, when you're arround.

See ya
