Travelling has always been a hobby I've taken very serious,either through business or leisure. After a career in Heavy Equipment sales I had the misfortune to have a serious accident which put a stop to that. Now I just work and go on extensive cycling trips or quests whichever you prefer.This travelogue was written on the advise of many people who suggested just to apply my "derrière" to a chair and get started. To be honest I have no intention to make it my new profession. It is just too difficult.
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.
