We rode into David to retrieve Jene's pannier.  What do you think happened?  The box was not there so the mechanic went to get it for us.  When they returned and the guy got out of the truck holding the box in one hand and the lid in the other you could hear the air come out of us.  The mechanic didn't charge Jene for the slight straightening job he had done.  We took the box and lid and went to the hardwear store.  Jene was able to get all the hinges and bolts he needed.  We rode back where Jene made the repairs with our new friend Richard's tools. The repair took about two hours in the very hot garage.  It works!!! 

We were really sweating it since we didn't hear from our Canadian riding buddies. 

We went to dinner after watching the sunset, hoping our friends were OK. We really expected them before dark.

As we were finishing dinner Nina saw a motorcycle helmet in the lobby.  There they were!  I can't tell you the relief I felt seing them here in the dinning room.  We hugged and caught up with their aqdventures.  It took them 2.5 hours to clear customs. 

We will ride after meeting for bfast at 7am to Panama City. 

we are now a complete team. I feel so much better now!  I will sleep soundly tonight, especially since Nina performed her theraputic essential oil treatment on me.  NICE

Hi JD! I'm glad to see you're still having an adventure down there, and I've wishing I was still in the sun too. I understand your concern for your riding companions, but you should know by now that us Canadians always come through! Stay safe and have a blast,
Nita (Dawson Creek,BC,Canada)
