  2. Hola Paul. I have to tell you that really enjoy this rasta-llama production. Make me wish to be on the road again

    Brilliant Paul. All my adventure biking buddies all watching, following & sharing. Best video log out there I’ve come across. Suggest posting it ADV Rider / Trip Reports if you want to get it out there to the masses. Keep doing what you’re doing.

    Paul, great stuff, really good Videologues. Keep ’em coming – we love watching them while we impatiently wait for our trip start date in October.

    • Jim, good news for the budget – gas is $2 (US) per gallon (3.8L) here!!! Bad news is you’ll be through Ecuador on only three full tanks!!

        Wow, that is cheap fuel. Paul, can I ask for a bit of info (when you get time and whilst you’re enjoying Equadors super fast Wi-Fi!) Tyres and SatNav mapping.
        I’ll fit new tyres just before we leave for BA. We’re initially heading up to the Iguaza falls then starting south to the bottom. So far I like running the bike on Anakee 3’s which you probably know are a 80/20 road/trail tyre (great on tarmac and pretty good on fire tracks / gravel / dry mud or grass but useless for wet/muddy). So question is, when heading south for TDF at what point do the roads turn to gravel or start to warrant something more knobbly? I could fit more trail orientated tyres from the off – interested in how you’ve found it. (The GS is 19inch front and 17inch rear)

        SatNavs – I see from your photos you’ve a Zumo 660 fitted which I what we have. Do you run Garmins own South America mapping on it? I’ve looked at Garmin SA maps (expensive) but also found some free opensource mapping but so far I can only get the opensource maps onto my PC Mapsource software, not actually onto the 660 itself.

        I hope the clouds thin out a bit so you get some better views but as you say, once you’re above them it’s great. Is there anything much more spectacular than looking across a range of peaks with the clouds below you!! Ride safe.

        Paul, I’m being a fool, having just asked you the tyres/Satnav question I went browsing your website and promptly found that detail under ‘bike’ – doh! Tell you what, let’s just say if there’s any info you think is useful (like how easily or otherwise you found it to buy tyres for your bike, that’d be great.

    Brilliant film Paul. It has been posted straight on to my fb page. Now I know where I want to go and what I want to do! Keep it flowing !

  6. Thanks for the kind comments, guys. I enjoy making these vids, and for this one I graduated from my iPad to iMovie – so much better. I’m now developing a mild obsession about buying one of those quadcopters with a camera mounted underneath!!!

  7. Simply fantastic

  8. Great video, great sound and a beautiful beautiful beautiful woman. You both look like you are having so much fun, now you just need to work out how to make lots of money from it !
    Ben F, if you are reading this eat your heart out and get back to retail 🙂

    • Unfortunately, Simon, my beautiful woman has got to leave me for a bit and earn some money, so the videos are going to lose all their appeal!!

      • Simon // 11/06/2014 at 1:10 pm //

        Perhaps we could get every customer from John Lewis to make a contribution to keep her in the videos !

    Pitch, great blog and videos – you’ll understand they are great escapism for those of us still inhabiting the puzzle palace in London! But I think you’ve summed it up pretty well – the appeal is about to drop considerably! Keep well and keep posting.

    • Aha, Wrighty – you have a moment of escape from the spreadsheets and mythical budget sums!! I’ll be home in Jul-Aug – perhaps a time for a catch up with Swifty and Stuzzer also in the building?

      • The Silverback // 10/06/2014 at 2:41 am //

        Yep, we’re all here and it would be good to see you. Get in touch when you get back. CCM 450….. Hmm….! Much to talk about!
