Day 21-22-23-24

Comment are off

Day 21 I wake up early out of that damn hotel loaded the bike back up (Betty Beam didnt get messed with thankfully) and I headed south well technically east considering the shape of panama.  Now I just mentioned how costa rica looked now from 4yrs ago well Panama I already knew has been infected by America and that is showing further outside the city now. I was just here in Panama 2yrs ago with my boy Alex and drove the exact same road.  When you finally got out of the city it was mainly just mom and pop convenience stores and souvenir stands as well.  Well there is high rises being built on the beach now as well as golf resorts it was crazy. I mean I dont know how they have all

that ocean front property and never used it in the first place. The caribbean side im sure will be next hell theres not even a road over there that im aware of.  Anyways get to my  mr Travis Pastrana resort Nitro City in Punta Chame.  Get checked in grab some lunch and relax by the pool before the normal every day storm came in at 4.  Now this place is mainly for people who ride MX skate bmx wakeboard kitesurf windsurf that kinda of genre. So this place is far from hopping off.  So once that sun goes down there is nothing to really do but drink. Now like i mention I was just here 2yrs ago and at the time the manager Jason (who was originally from San Fran) made sure everyone was involved we played drinking games not everyone had to drink that was

just what we wanted to do. We had a blast well this time around I didnt even meet the damn manager. So needless to say when the rain hit everyone just pretty much went to there rooms.  Day 22 I woke up it was beautiful I was going to rent a motocross bike but unfortunately the track was being worked on cause they were having a race on sunday. So with that idea out the window I hung out by the pool and couple guys pulled one of the skate ramps up to the side and we jumped some bikes into the pool a few times.  It all came to a end kinda fast I didnt have my own bicycle so when they were done I was done. So relaxed for a bit until I heard music coming from the wakeboard park while I was walking back to my room. I rolled over there it was a family taking there kids on the board. I got to get a

few passes on im no bad ass so I tend to suck at making a full pass without falling.  Then again around 5 came the daily thunderstorm right before dark that pretty much ended the night.  I thought eh its friday night maybe people will come together and party but nope not the case so after eating dinner I was back in my room. Day 23 I woke up paid my food bill for the 2 days and off to panama city i went.  I booked my hotel downtown in the heart of the city so needless to say traffic was brutal. I again clipped the front end of a ladys car which was a mercedes (now the only reason i name dropped the car this time and not the car i dented is cause people who usually drive these doucheee over price cars are FUCKS they want to act like they got money but yet the dipshits cant afford to fix it and cry when it get scratched… umm its a fucking car thats what happens if u dont want it to get scratch buy a god damn match box car and put it in a safe… end rant) anyways so yeah clipped it with my bags and again she gave no fucks didnt even get out and just shushed me away and continued to text on her phone  (thank fucking sake dont need to keep on paying 200$ for peoples cars everyday she to realize its just a god damn car n shit happens)  So get to my hotel which is in a mall. So relax for a bit then decide to take a good stroll around the mall and then just posted up at the pool outside that stared at the ginormous hard rock hotel building. (come to find out the Hard Rock hotel is 66 god damn stories)  So get back on the internet and do some more research on how to get to columbia because I just found out no ferry leaves till Oct 4th so far that I found so thats a whole week here in panama city that I dont want and and then 4 nights on a boat so

that puts me back 2 weeks. Got info on flying me and the bike over and well thats almost 2000$ and that I sure dont want to do either.  So contacted a few container companies about throwing old Betty and Bert in the container by there selves.  So still waiting to hear back from them.  So another sat night just chilling in a hotel laying low cause not sure how much this damn columbia ordeal is going to cost me. So I got Taco Bell from the mall and stayed in to write this and call it a night. Day 24 the guy from florida on the triumph emailed me and asked

if I would like to head over to the docks at the Panama Canal. I agreed and around noon he got to my hotel we grab lunched in the mall at Ruby Tuesday (cause they had a bar) and rolled on over to the canal. Now I didnt really think the canal would be all that interesting but its actually pretty rad they have a decent size museum and then a hour later we grabbed drinks at there bar and went up to the top viewing deck to watch the next boat go through the canal.  That was all over with we grabbed a taxi and headed back to where his hotel was because he mentioned there was a bunch of pubs around his hotel. Had a few drinks at some cool little bars an then went to the casino to play some roulette.  I usually dont like to gamble and I probably sure as hell shouldnt be wasting my money on gambling when im on a 3 an half month long trip but I know when to quit so when 50$ is gone im done. ( i like to think i usually get my 50$ worth of booze in that time and here in panama they were filling me up left and right)  After the casino just called it a night around 2am.
