Midpoint Reflections

Cycled into Panama City today marking the completion of one entire continent. After spending 8.5 months living from my bike I've gotten lots of new skills and lost others. Here are some that I've gained: fixing anything with duct tape and zipties, bargaining for goods and services, a sixth sense for sketchy people, sleeping in places I'm not supposed to, the ability to eat anything with a spork. Here are skills I've lost: AutoCAD, loading plotter paper, personal boundaries with strangers.
