    I look forward to more of the ride.

    In the 80's I did 2 tours up at Camp Liberty Bell on the DMZ in a Light Infantry unit.
    Camp Liberty Bell used to be right next to JSA at Camp Bonifas,but it is gone now.

    We dont get the priviledge of many Korea ride reports.

    Here's a screen grab of one of the highways we rode, National Hwy. 42 near the East coast:

    Once out of the city and in the countryside, the riding is really beautiful:

    The provincial boundries usually have some kind of arch over the road or other marker, like the one you can see here:

    On the first day of this 3-day ride, we were on a provincial highway that unexpectedly had a 3-mile section of gravel. Some of it was pretty rough for the kind of bikes we were on, but everyone made it through:
