Panama to Canada

Hey well I've made it to Panama. So now I am at the point in witch I turn this trip around and point it in the opposite direction. I'm not in to much of a hurry to get north because of the fact that it's freezing up there. However I will be making my way. Looking to be back for mid April. So if anyone is heading that detection in the next few months let me know and maybe we could meet up for some of the ride.

Canuck headed yr way

Hola there, man. Name's Seth. Hope this finds you very well and enjoying Panama. Am in Antigua, Guat on my way down from Kelowna, BC. Dunno if I'll be selling my RT1100 in Panama once I'm there, or riding back, so I thought I'd drop a line to hedge my bets for some return company if I do ride home once the passes are clear and the skies brighter.
Have met up with another rider (finally!) and we're heading down at a leisurely pace... can hook up with y'all once there if you wish.
Wondering if my pipe dream of a new life in P (for at least a year) as an ESL teacher (or reviled ad man; I'm also a copywriter) is a viable one. Opinions, advice, raves and rants all welcomed.
Cheers, Seth Klapman

Ya sounds good let me on your progress. I arrived in the Capitol today. What great feeling going over that bridge with an enormous container ship going under it. Now I need to find some new shoes for the horse and a tune up would be great as well.
