My Dear String Pullers,
If you have made it this far to read my update, I am bashfully thankful. So now I can say: the whole thing is coming to some re-blooming end. As it does.
I started writing one of these updates a few weeks ago, it has since turned into a chapter of my book.
This is the abbreviation.
Motored up from Peru into Ecuador, drank rum and lime and sang on the beach with a true American kid named Dan. I named my motorcycle Percy and learned how to treat her right. Worked for an old lady named Linda, helping to maintain a building on the sea. Drove the bike to Columbia where I met Oliver the quiet genius. Oliver brought me to Leonardo; Leonardo had the boat to swing us over the Darien Gap. Oliver, our mad captain Leonardo, Roman the Pole and The Sarge, all on a little torn up sailboat rocking through the Carribean Sea. My bike and I made it physically intact to land, the mental is a story I will have to tell in the book. Forded rivers, camped in cowpens, beautiful deserts, highway hills, and slept next to bodyguards bearing machetes. Then up through Central America and now on the brink of our last great Mexico.
And Joseph! is somewhere in the Straights of Magellan, hitchhiking the boat trails. I miss my travelling brother like I can't explain, but we will be reunited sometime soon, perhaps with you to share whiskey and tales.
Some of you may have received Kickstarter Rewards. Some in fancy packing, some in boxes with the words ¨Peligro Guanacaste Militia¨ on it. If you have any complaints about the reward, be it a surprise piece of brain coral, or a worn out hat from Guatemala: you can air your grievences in the bin, for these are my prized items.
If you have yet to recieve your reward, all of which are the PHOTO reward, be patient. It is coming and will be worth it.
Now I once again say Thank You. Thank you for taking the time to read this and Thank You for helping me to see my dream in the flesh.
PS You can hopefully see some journey pictures on my facebook page:
