I am working at the British Army camp in Belize Central America at the moment and have met up with a fellow Yorkshireman, who has been staying in the camp here. I couldn't believe it when he told me what he was doing. What a guy, with a sense of humour and a great personality. He had a bit of bad luck in Guatamala but is now on track to restart his journey. Had a few beers last night with him so he is now ready to set off again. Good luck to you Ian and ride easy.

Hi, I had a nice visit with Ian in Florida back in April. My family is from Colne so we hit it off right away. He had stopped at a Honda dealership for some parts. I was one of the local riders having coffee when Ian pulled up. He is now in Alaska and preparing for a trip across the Bering Strait to the USSR. We all wished Ian a safe ride. The pictures of your area are beautiful. I would love to plan a trip to the area.
