Doug's South American Excursion
August 14th 1996, Doug Ruth took off on his custom BMW R100G/S motorcycle
on a year long tour of Central and South America. While on this adventure he
is carrying a palm top computer and sending back his diary so that those
back home can live vicariously through his travels.

Doug didn't pack much for his trip, but he did whip together a small
check list before he left.
