Robbed!!!

Posted by on Jul 11, 2010 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Paraguay, South America | Comments Off on Robbed!!!

May 6, 2010 I’d spent about 4 hours on the internet last night, then finished off a cheesy novel in my room reading until the wee hours. Next morning I went to breakfast a little on the late side, wrote some emails over coffee, then went out to my bike. It was something like out of a bad movie…all my panniers were open, and I just stood there staring at it for a few moments…how could my panniers be open when I had not been out to the bike yet… then it hit me: I WAS ROBBED! I ran back into the hotel and told the front desk guy to call the police. he didn’t rather he followed me out to the bike, which I’d parked in the hotel parking lot, where the owner was just pulling in.

First Flat Tire of the Trip

Posted by on Jul 10, 2010 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Paraguay, South America | Comments Off on First Flat Tire of the Trip

May 4, 2010 Well, it’s never a good time to get a flat tire, but at least I knew what to do when it happened. Check out this bolt I picked up about 40 miles after leaving Tebicuary… That bolt was 4″ long, and the entire thing was embedded in my tire. The rear tube was absolute toast, and so I got to use the spare I’d carried for about 19,000 miles! In hindsight I wish I had more pictures…I rolled the bike off the road and started to work…only to realize I’d set up shop in the sand and the bike was sinking…and I had no way of breaking the bead of the rear tire since I oul not get enough leverage off my center stand with it in the sand… …along came a very nice gentleman on...

Rolón family

Posted by on Jul 9, 2010 in Motorcycle Vagabonding, Paraguay, South America | Comments Off on Rolón family

May 3, 2010 It was a lovely, and long, and rather hot ride to Tebicuary. Robert Rolón  had invite me to stay with his family there, and tour the sugar can mill he worked at. I was really impressed my the countryside–gone was the dismal, trash-strewn roadside, but clean, kept, and with large ranches proudly displaying their names and the products they produced. German influence  meets Latin America, and it kept me wondering why other areas I’d traveled through had such a hard time keeping themselves organized and clean, when Paraguay, the poorest country in South America, was so neat and orderly. Because I love bathroom humor.  But really.  Just WHAT was I supposed to do with this hose? Mennonites. Note to self: NO MORE BEEF!!! I got completely and utterly turned around in Villarica. I was supposed to...
