Calgary to Brazil blog from a couple years ago

Obviously I'm an FNG on this site as well as owning a KLR (or any kawasaki for that matter) but one site that finally pushed me over the edge to buy one was that guys blog about quiting his job with Apple and buying a KLR to ride from Canada to Brazil on his KLR, (pimptrix.com). But after making it to Brazil the thing ends abruptly without any comment what what happened to the guy! DROVE ME NUTS! Does anyone know what the guy ended up doing after this gargantuan of a ride? I would expect re-entry to the corporate life would be a struggle. Anyone?

Site keeps crashing on my iPad so I'll have to look at it later. May be able to get some info at the local level.

Oh yes it is an enormous page. Every post and pic from over two years on the road is all on the home page! You can scroll down for forever. First post is on the very bottom, or there is a tab at the top that says 1st Post, but they are all on the home page. It's slow to load on a desktop if you scroll too fast.

Man that is one memory hog of a web page. I wish he would have split it up a little. Takes forever to load and probably as long to read it all. Some awesome pictures though.

A little Googling shows he's back in Calgary working for a bank. Trying to make contact.

You'd think a guy who worked at Apple would have a reasonable idea of how to make a good blog page.

He flew out of Venezuela and back into Nevada. You can see the start and finish because he has one of those spot trackers on him
