Into the Chaco

Posted by on Jun 11, 2010 in Bolivia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | 2 comments

May 4th, 2010 Oofa. I wake up and I am a wreck. The only satisfaction I have is that there’s a car in front of the hotel entrance–I ask them if it’s a guest and they say yes, and they go and wake Mr. Noisy at 6:30 AM. He comes down shirtless, which I easily could have gone the rest of my life without witnessing, and moves the car. I fire up the bike in the lobby (I’m feeling wicked) and Oh yeah, I bump into all the furniture on my way out, too. Ugh. Putting on wet gear to ride in the rain. My Daytona boot were great when I bought them in 2006, but now they have decided to not be waterproof any more, despite the Gore-Tex lining. It’s a drag to put on cold/wet boots. But...

Chaco (Bolivian Side)

Posted by on Jun 11, 2010 in Bolivia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, Paraguay, RumBum.com Articles, South America | Comments Off on Chaco (Bolivian Side)

In order not to repeat myself here, I’ll re-post the link to my Chaco experience I wrote about on RumBum.com http://rumbum.com/953-a-night-in-the-chaco#continue_post This tree is called the “palo borracho”, the drunken stick. The engorged trunk is actually a lifesaver for the tree: when the rains come, the tree stores water reserves in the trunk. I’d smile every time I saw one (which was quite often!) Crappy night’s sleep, but the Chaco is an incredible place. Here are some of the sounds the next morning: Please follow and like...

Goodbye Rick

Posted by on Jun 10, 2010 in Bolivia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | 1 comment

May 3, 2010 Goodbye Rick. Gosh, I’d had so much fun with him…he was great company–easy to be with, an awesome rider, and an instigator like me and we kept pushing each others’ envelopes. We’d had a great time together, but since we were headed in opposite directions (him North, me South) it was time to say goodbye. A break in traffic outside the hotel and I was off. Need to make a call? I had to show all the bike paperwork here for the nice policeman. Bad piggy! Pavement ends, back to ripio… Yeah baby, I forgot to mention my Bolivian luck…Air Hawk found out that I was riding all these miles on a STOCK SEAT, and they sent me a cushion to La Paz. Yeah! salvation for those achey buns! Wow. Serious landslide. Uck. rain. Off and...
