Tripping Around The World, Envy Me But Wish Me Luck

Hello everybody :grin: just want to thank you all and especially the many members i've had the pleasure of meeting and riding with over the years and probably for putting up with the various tales we all have between us. I'm sure that there will be many more in the future and long may this site stay as such a close unit of passionate people!

Sadly i wont have the chance to ride with any of you this year and to make it even harder for many of you to stomach heres why...
When i got it :oops:

I just got back from the airport where i dropped my latest steed off to be packed into a plane bound for toronto, canada. Monday i will be on a plane there too to collect it pack my luggage and head out to start with towards the great USA and a 6 week pass to go from new york to los angeles on off road trails and many points of great interest. Good times :grin:

But thats just the start because i'm young stupid and have been saving for this for a long time. So from there i turn left and head through Baja, Mexico, guatemala,honduras,nicaragua,costa rica,panama. Followed by a boat trip and continuing, colombia :shock: ,ecuador,peru,bolivia and finally argentina. Very good times.

Needless to say i bored many of you to death with my talk and excitement, now it happens so wish me luck and i'll keep you updated when i can. Hope to see you for some trips when i'm back

Best of luck to you on you trip Graham, and as Mark says, maybe a 'Ring re-union next year will be in order. All the best with the trip and take plenty of photos and keep a journal as you'll relive every moment of it for years to come.

Graham, i know how much you have wanted this and your finaly set to go. i applaud you for having the guts to chuck the job in and realise your dream.
You got my number and for what its worth mate, if ever you come unstuck and are short of a few quid to get you out of a pickle, you only need make a call or get in touch.
However i want lots of pics and one hell of a write up when you get back mate
Not envious at all :mrgreen:

Very envious - counting down to our family trip back home to Asia at the end of the season.
