The tickets were bought,maybe 1 hour ago so there is no turning back now. The trip moves forward, and we fly to China May 21st at midnite from Los angeles. At this stage it is Mom and I and our son Pine who will fly over. MY daughter Nevada is tenatively taking a stone setting class from GRS instructor and friend Todd Daniels- if the class falls thru for her since she is late signing up, then she will fly over with us ( still to be decided ).
We will spend the weekend putting our bikes back together and with any luck, we will be ready to start riding on Monday morning. If our calculations are correct, we will have about 95 pounds on the bike, that is pretty light since further north in Mongolia we will be adding a lot more weight with extra water that we carry. I am pretty sick of buying tidbits and pieces for the trip, what started out as alot of fun just shopping around at night has now turned into a real pain in the rear as far as I am concerned
We got our stove tonight by faithful UPS”Tim”, we decided on an alchohol stove. Cowboy logic says if ya cant cook least ya kin drink. If any of you readers of this blog have advice on this matter by all means fill me in, love to hear it.
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT- JERE MIAH WILL BE OUT’A HERE AS OF MIDNIGHT MAY 21ST
