Very envious!

I've spent the last couple days catching back up with the trip. I read for a while as I sat in the hospital with my (very Dad like) stepdad whom I love deeply. He has Parkinson's and extremely bad lung cancer that has spread to his bones. We had a tough but good night spent together remembering times we shared. He'll soon give in to his health condition and we won't have him but in our hearts as we try to make it through life. The best thing is he gave his life to Christ long ago and we have that assurance to lean on just as you do with Chris. As we've watched his body wither for the past six months, I've often thought of you. It's interesting how it seems like you know someone who you've never even seen live, much less have never met.

It didn't strike me as lucky that you were so close to help when your bike broke down. God gives us good gifts just as we don't expect them. Sometimes its hard to remember that His hand is on everything even something as "unimportant" as a little motorcycle ride in India. I know by your expression of faith that you know this and I don't pretend to tell you something you don't already know about our Lord.

God bless you Radioman. I have and will pray for your travels

As I type this and I'm back home two hours from my parents, I just received a call from my brother at the hospital that our mother (primary care giver for our stepdad) has blood pressure of 200 over 100 and a high pulse rate. When you read this, please pray for them. Thank you brother and be careful.

Mark, glad to see you're still living it up in grand style. The enfields are definitely a nice change of pace from the F. I like it. Carry on...

It seems like a little bit of pushing is just part of the Enfield charm.

I envy him for getting a change to ride a truck in himalayas. I've always wanted to do that.

Dayum. I hate it when I get too busy and don't keep up.

As it turns out I was in Hillsboro on the 14th and 15th. I could have made this.

Woulda, shoulda, coulda.

Happy travels Mark!

Yes, you will find it hard to notice the scenery over the sound of how awesome we are.

Back in Manali?

Ruh-roh...I suspect I know what's up but will refrain from commenting...


If you guys didn't eat at Mayur in Manali the first time, do! Best Indian food ever! It's even maddbrit approved:



This was a desert called "God save the Queen" or something like that...
