Yeap...all the time. It will take a bigger effort to make me sad than that....What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

 A slide show for everybody.....

Homero, tell Gilbertosl that is a GREAT slide show.  Looks like a wonderful  but tough trip. Nothing like having a couple of excellent mechanics along to fix the broken suspensions and axles along the way.  They had plenty to do AND y'all really know what to bring to be comfortable and enjoy the experience.  Don't know about that bag of cracklings though!

  I just did Al.....BTW, Gilberto speaks excellent english. And yes, those trips are eye catchers,but it is nothing compare with what is under the rug. All of them are on hand mechanics, it is either that or  leaveyour vehicle behind...... :eusa_eh:

 Just imagine how one returns from one of thise trips.....nothing can stop you from what you set your mind to.
