Mike H (Glen Ellyn IL) for Nepal

I don’t think he has it yet, but I know Mike H has ordered an all-round Waterford travel bike (S and S couplers).  It is a bike that can be used on and off the road and it will take a rack for use with panniers.   That’s smart.  If you are going to put a fair chunk of change into a travel bike, you might as will get one that covers all the bases.

We cover a lot of different bases in Nepal, so it will get a test.

This won’t be Mike’s first foray with Far and Away.  He has the Lao tour under his belt.

The best part of this whole thing is Mike’s twin sons, Joe H and Greg H are also in.   I think it is something special when you can take in a travel adventure with your kids.  Typically, the planets have to line up a certain way for this to even have a remote chance of  happening.

It seems that Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are all in a line for Nepal.

Of the 100's of nights I have been on tours, I think the homestays in Laos are the ones that are the most memorable.  This is Ban Faen.  Sometimes there is power, sometimes there isn't.  There is always dinner, dancing....and an animist priest.  Mike is on the right here...this pic was taken before the dancing, but  after the priest.  :-)

This is Mike in Arizona.  Mike has an interest in looking at stars and planets and Arizona is a good spot for that.  That's probably how he knew the planets had lined up!
