We're going up to the very top of this building to meet Glen Heggstad (The Striking Viking). He is on the top floor at the Penthouse. Don had made contact with Glen and had arranged for us to go by and say "hello".
Chatting with Glen with his World tour pictures in the background. Glen has ridden around the world to some very remote places on a motorcycle. I read his book in preparation for my trip to South America.

Notes for today:

  • We had one extra day to spend wherever. We chose to spend it here. It turned out to be much more than just a rest day. We got a great tour of the city. I had intentions on meeting Reed Roach (from Dallas) today to visit and share road stories, but we never caught each other. We were both at my hotel at the same time, but just didn't see each other. Stan and Steve described an orange motorcycle that came out of the parking lot at the same time they were returning from a walk. Don and I had been sitting at the beach area hoping Reed could make it by and just flat missed each other?
  • We met Glen Heggstad today. Don made the arrangements and it was much more than a pleasure hearing his many stories of his life-long adventures and some of his more recent travel adventures around the world. He was extremely giving of his time, home and experiences. It was a valued meeting by all of us.
  • To learn more about Glen you can go to his website that is posted above. If you have a lot of time and want to be entertained while learning more about Glen, then go to this forum link: The Adventure Riders Forum
  • This page starts in the middle of a long list of interviews with known riders. This link starts out rousting Glen out for the interview lead by Packmule. The interview takes several weeks with a question here and there while forum members comment along the way. It takes time, but Glen gives some complete answers (with documentation in some cases) to his past.
