Back on topic, is there anyone here who's a bike enthusiast?

I want to know if there's anything special I should have in mind when choosing.

Sorry, not big on bikes. I also live on the east coast, which is just about as opposite as you can get from ANYONE on Snafu. Not that they would enjoy my company anyway.

Also, you were talking about hitting up Philadelphia, New Jersey... you know that's on the East coast, right? Thousands of miles away from your original path to Panama.

As the people in the thread have said, if you cut through into Central Canada you can meet up with a couple of people from snafu, and Mir@k near the east coast of Latin America, apparently near(ish) Panama.

But heading to New Jersey would detour you thousands of miles away from your original destination.

Not very efficient in my eyes... :|

But hey, if you want to forgo the trip to Panama and make it a cross coast, cross country adventure, then by all means pinball across the entire western hemisphere.

The horse is a bad idea for about twenty reasons.

Central Canada in terms of Snafu members is just Warbear.

Even worse he might head into Saskatchewan.

   I spelled it right on the first try, am I becoming Canadian?

Actually, I'm not looking for the most efficient route to Panama.

I just want to see the Americas. Firsthand.

Doesn"t have to be quick.

Real close yog, in fact, i can even see it from my roof.

An interesting transcript from an article on the psyche of potential mentally unstable individuals wrote:Some people experience a special kind of mental illness in which main symptom is a high-class tendency to adquire attention. In their eagerness to make themselves useful to others, to have something to say and/or to appear, in the eyes of others, as trustworthy and reliable people (either for the sake of obtaining attention or influence for a position of power), they might end up doing more harm that good. For those people there are many counseling and psychiatric services available everywhere worldwide. Call your local help line, tomorrow it could be you.

Why the quote, Mir?

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:21 pm

Who did i quote in my post?

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:22 pm

I think that's his way of saying he actually really wants you to visit him. It's cute, really.

Re: Traveling Thread

@Bird: No, that's my way of saying you're leeroy jenkins your way into people's threads again. Shut up if you don't even know basic geography or you might be giving yog ill-investigated information. We don't want him getting lost.

Hey, I'm actually on Google Earth Myself. Everything I've said has been with a digital atlas aide! Can't get any more accurate than what I already said.

If I got something wrong I apologize, what geographic detail did I miss?

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:28 pm

Panama is on the other side of central america from mexico.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:30 pm

So much for having google earth opened lmao.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:30 pm

Yes, I know... as I said I have a giant digital atlas helping me. It's south/southeast of Costa Rica and west of South America. Along the eastern coast is where Mir@k is as well as the Canal. To my knowledge I have already said that multiple times. Did I say it was on the western coast or something? Might have to edit it if I did.

*sigh*

Good luck on your travels yog, and never bring too much cash in physical form with you.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:33 pm

Anyway, if I got lost, I wouldn't be worried.

Its already happened a few times, hah.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:34 pm

I also reccomend you pick one of these, it has saved my hide a couple of times.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:38 pm

The fact that you're giving me links to things to help me, I.e. Actually going out of your way to search for the stuff, is pretty kind of you, Mir.

I appreciate all of your help, guys.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:45 pm

I'm not buying anything for you, i don't see how i am helping but okay. I just hope this goes from just being theoretical planning to actual traveling because i'll be fucked if everyone's making projects that we all know they'll never be lifted off the ground.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:51 pm

The smallest acts of kindness speak the loudest.

Don't worry, I will be going through with this plan.

I'm just trying to measure out my budget.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:53 pm

To be honest yog i don't think you should plan on going to south america yet. I'd be more happy for you if you first got to see your own country before attempting something more large-scale. I don't even quite remember if you know spanish or not.

Re: Traveling Thread

Wed Nov 28, 2012 4:57 pm

I was born in Panama. My mother and her family is from El Salvador.

Of course I know spanish.

Anyway, like I said, me going this year is still up in the air, due to money.

Next year at least, is for sure.
