This travelogue describes a cycling journey from Calgary, Alberta to Panama and back to Calgary, about 13000 kms. The trip,took 8 months and last but not least was taken by a more than middle aged man, completely unsupported and using only used equipment. Hopefully it may catapult someone to do something unorthodox,experience the odd adventure and discover how other people live.
