Hola,

Watch the vid, not much time to type...  : )

Prepare for a little rambling

..but of course if you know me youll know this isnt that strange

Full screen, right this way folks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeDRx2lC6aI

Adios...

p.s. I guess,

All is good but I forgot to mention that my sprag clutch is probably on the way out again, I replaced it last july when it broke, Peadar had to change his in Uruguay and he has also mentioned that his is most likely broken aswell, he is awaiting word back from the mechanic..

What is it with these bloody things!

============================================

2nd attempt to leave...

Yesterday I tried again, check out what happened this time.

 

Tomor I attempt to leave again but this time I will go north 300ks and cross there.

Im not trying that terrible road again.. I wouldnt have had this trouble if I wasnt trying to drive as fast to keep up with the land cruiser, anyway, I wont try that again. I have now put on new sprockets as well, so Im even more prepared for the road ahead.

 

Ill go my own way, "Solo y loco", as I always like to say. Actually come to think of it, that phrase might be copyrighted?, but you know how copyright laws are down here ; )

...I added some more photos,

wish me luck, Third times a charm!

I know i'm biased but you have some fantastic pics. Petrol over here still keeps going up, its about €1.35 a litre in Gorey now up to over €1.40 if you don't look around. Ride safe?
