Dreaming turns to Packing & Planning

Have had to get rooms in my house cleared out as my new renters are actually moving in next week. I will be here a couple months while I wrap up at work, pack up the rest of my personal belongings, sell as much as possible, get the ride preparation done….. Lots to do!!

Moving some items into my room to get sorted out over the next months.


Old Apple computer …in great working order to get rid of…

Downstairs master bedroom is now empty except the mattress.

Still have most of my Wife’s clothing to go through. Very emotional process. But fortunately one of Chris’s best friends is helping me with this process.

One upstairs bedroom clear except the mattress

The pile for Goodwill is growing as I take the “simplify” idea to reality!!

Had dinner with Arno on Monday night to talk about his riding experiences in Mexico and south (know it is risky given his riding )… It was great to start considering all the necessary things about this kind of travel. Will get to the preparation a bit later….. But need to figure out what bike, get all my affairs in order, Medical consideration like shots for hepatitis /malaria etc…,
Borders, Language Schools, other gear….

Also met with my friend SunnysideUp last Sunday. Talked about her experiences is central and south America. Gathering information for great people. Forgot to get a photo 🙁

Of course this dream has been a long time in the making….. Just a few Adventure riding books on my shelf….many others are loaned out

I fully intend to share this ride via Ride report….Blog, Photos videos commentary and visits to as many ADV riders as possible!!
