If you need something to get lost in for hours, follow this guy's ride report. Montreal to Vancouver to Tucson to El Salvador. Amazing photography. Kind of the gold standard for bike photography, putting my pre-Spring ride to shame several times over. Starts slow but builds quick after page four or so I'm hooked.
I'm not really drawn to "adventure" riding - always seems a bit cliche, with the BMW's, the knobby tires and expensive gear. But, man... to go there.
One of those things that makes you realize how amazing the internet can be.
