Antone Heard From Richard (TravellingStrom) Since the 1st OCT?

Hey people.

Richards mum is a bit worried.

Has anyone heard anything from him in the last few days.

Are there any members down around La Buta Mexico that might know something?

Last Spot track was between La Buta and Batopilas Mexico near a river.
Here - google maps

No movement in the last 4 or 5 days on the SPOT tracker.

Cheers

He probably lost the spot, don't panic, and thanks for all the fish. You may want to ask on ADV as they have a greater chance of having folks in Mexico. Only member I know of personally is in Mexico City and probably cannot help. Let me know if you need help in Mexico City area though and I'll PM him.

I've gotten regular spot updates. His blog is behind, I'm assuming due to a lack of access to the net.

There was no Spot activity for a few days. It started again today. I expect he'll have an interesting blog report when he gets Internet access again.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I am (just a little bit) worried, but hey I worry alot about everything. I like to go to his spot page and see him moving. That thing works every where. He is most likely in a dead phone / innernet access area and has turned off his spot for some reason.

Spot will only send a position beacon for something like 14 hours and then it stops until you re-set it. On a long ride, I usually miss at least one day resetting it.

Thanks... I did not know that. That makes me feel better. Maybe he found a sinurita (sp) {girl} that has lots of fresh choriso. He seems to like that spicy sausauge.

I've gotten at least one every day....I have to admit I didn't check the location, but an "I'm OK" message has arrived each day.

I was just checking the locations. He did drop the bike but not badly and has an update posted today.

Position beacons are sent every ten minutes. I'm Okay and 911 alerts are sent manually.
