    Good Morning

    Dave. looks like you are getting to see a ton of country. amazing scenery.
    42,000 km is a long haul in such a short time but for a good cause.

    Some days you will see it has been tough with the rain and all. we were wondering though like todays post you mention until the gravel started. you rode 240km of ripio… what about dust conditions. there appears to be none

    it is great to read your blog every day and see the fantastic pictures. Thanks, as a lot of us will never get the opportunity to do what you are Dave.

    Keep at it Buddy.

    Hi Dave – looks like amazing riding! I’ve been studying the map to figure out where you’ll end your trip – will it be Ushuaia? They do say there are penguins around there. Looking at them on the internet, they offer a sailing trip to an island south of the coast that looks pretty cool – lots of penguins and sea lions.

    Good luck!

  6. Breathtaking! It’s absolutely beautiful. You’re so lucky to see all this. Incredible colours. And the sky is blue, the sun is out, what more does one want?

  7. Looks like central BC (between Kelowna & Kamloops). Beautiful!!!
