Day 96 – Caye Caulker, BZ to Flores, GU

Day 96 – Caye Caulker, BZ to Flores, GU     11/25/10     Mileage: 0 (riding)  3 hours on a chicken bus.

I was up early for breakfast and on the first water taxi off the caye at 8:30. The ride back to Belize City was nice and there were several cruise ships anchored just offshore…thankfully they do not go to Caye Caulker or the place would be ruined. I caught the first chicken bus back to San Ignacio and It was a spine powdering 3 hour ride as the suspension on the bus was completely shot. I actually sat leaned to one side so as not to send the shock from every bump straight up my spine. Back in San Ignacio I met up with Brian, packed up the KLR and we split back towards Guatemala. At the border we met two fellow ADV’ers (a website called Adventure Rider that I also post to) also riding KLR’s. We exchanged information as they are heading south as well, so perhaps we may catch up again down the road.

3 KLR’s and one lone BMW at the Guatemala / Belize border…

After crossing back into Guatemala, we rode back to Flores and found rooms for the night. That night we met Evan who is from Alberta, Canada and also riding an ’09 KLR just like mine. It was like a bloody KLR convention down here today! He joined us for dinner and we all swapped stories and lies from the road. I wasn’t able to find turkey and stuffing, and my dinner companions were from Canada and England, but I sure do have a lot to be thankful for, so it was a great Thanksgiving dinner none the less!

    Hoping the after effects of the chicken bus went away and your back is good.
    It is windy and cold here today. Almost all the leaves are off the trees and Dad has to rake again…..done it twice already. Dad painted the bathroom today and the windows are open to air the smell out and I am cold.

    Have a good weekend. Love ya, Mom

    The Thanksgiving Holiday weekend is almost over. Hanukkah is coming early this year, Wednesday night is the first night………..food, food, food and fried food. Too soon after Thanksgiving.

    I see that you are in El Salvador and I believe the weather is dry there now and good to be there before the Christmas crowd because the prices go up from what I just read.

    Enjoy and be safe. Love ya, Mom

    Was so glad to see your blog and know that all is well with you. I know that it can be days before you can get an internet connection and always happy when you do write a comment or add to the blog.

    I was so happy to see Roberta’s comment and anyone of my friends who read it just love it also. I always say it is great but it isn’t their son down there. I am the one who worries. Love ya and be safe. Mom
