Finally on the road with the new Trike and Trailer, fully loaded with the Schumpf as well. Today I am talking about how my first ride went, comparing with my last trip, and also commenting on the Schlumpf drive in action.
If you want to know why I am not wearing a helmet…. Ill give you a hint… “I’m not that smart”.
Other than that… I touch on some timing considerations, and plans ahead when I do get back on the road

    You have not lost anything with those of us that are following you!!! I sure understand the hurtles that are in your way but the way you are handling them is great!!! I love your podcasts and can’t wait to hear what’s going on in your travels day by day, your interaction with the people in the villages you travel throughur!! There is no one else out there that is doing a life’s journey the same way that you are doing yours, and it’s just an amazing and exciting journey for us that can’t do this, to follow!! As a woman, I’m wondering how Anny feels that you will be gone for so long. Will she periodically catch up with you and visit for a bit? I sure all the other women out there are wondering the same thing!! Counting down to the first of November to continue your world tour!!! Oh, believe me, I’m following you every step of the way!! I’m like your second mother!!! lol

      First week in November… i am not thinking it will be the 1st… but in the first week. As for Anny… “its complicated”… as i am sure you understand. Ill get into more of my relationship later…. for now i am still figuring it out. But i will tell you it could get SUPER interesting.
      As for the journey… i intend to invest my life into making this the most unique and interesting project i can. Hoping to inspire and entertain others as much as i can along the way.

  • I’v not heard you mention any kind of tire pump. With you be MOSTLY self contained what about a tire pump just encase of flat tire or things of that nature. Best of luck to you and Ryan on your travels – I’ll be watching from my computer. Monty
