    Thanks!!! You've answered my question about handling dogs in this video. 🙂 Maybe you don't believe it, but I have already learned from you… Thanks a lot and all the best from germany.

    Hey ! great videos and so inspiring 🙂 does your new bikepacking setup is sufficient for caring all your gear, food etc? it seems so minimal !

    I looked away from the screen for a moment, looked back and saw you with that big yellow rock in your hand about to eat it, and for a moment I thought “That’s the world’s largest crack cocaine rock, and he’s going to eat it?!!” If it had been, you’d have launched that fat bike, and been in Australia before you knew it. Come to think of it, I wonder if you could put enough air in those fat tires to make the bike float? Anyway, on a more serious note, and speaking of addiction, if you haven’t already, (and I’m surprised if not) prepare yourself to be offered “Mate” aka “cimarron” a widely used, highly addictive caffeinated tea drank by the locals seemingly everywhere there through a silver straw “bombillo”. Also common for perfect strangers to offer you to drink from their cup, with THEIR straw. I’m very surprised it hasn’t made it onto your videos yet.

    Thank you for sharing this with me. I just got done touring in Colombia. I enjoyed the experience but I was mostly on paved roads so it was not at all the same. You have inspired me to get some fatter tires and get off the highways 🙂

    Love your interactions with the animals haha. I could never get cows to moo. I'll definiely be watching your other videos 🙂
