Inspiring tour story

I dont know if it is taboo to post a thread from another forum, but I just came across this story and had to share it. It's one guy's trip across the Altiplano--really an amazing trip!

That bike trip is the most amazing thing I've read. The man is an explorer ranking with the best of the past.. He should send a copy to the Explorers Club in NYC

Wow, another good link. We should have a "post the best tour story you've read" thread. Or maybe not--It'd keep me from work for hours and hours!
