    Good question!! Maybe he did not keep up a photo account? From following this report, it looks like Wesley works on offshore oil platforms for weeks at a time, so maybe he's been on back-to-back contracts and hasn't had time to get back to this report. I for one hope he returns, because I've picked up hints in other reports from the same area and time that some big stuff happens.

    I was wondering the same - did the account get deleted? :( Was just fixing to send this to a friend for them to check out.

    I just had to bump this back up to the top of the list in the hopes that it will attract enough attention that the OP will continue it. It was a great report. And we haven't even gotten to the romance part yet!!!

    Fast forward to Feb 3, 2016! Wesley, how the heck are ya? I was thinking that with the global oil glut you might have had more downtime from the rigs and be able to continue your amazing story!

    Loved this report, very bizarre how all the photos are gone. Hope Wes comes back soon.

    +1 on the great report.

    Unfortunately it seems his posts have been deleted, not just a photo hosting issue :baldy

    My bad, fellow inmates! I did not know that the OP's posts had been deleted when I bumped this. I would have sworn that it was just the photos, due to the transition to the new platform. This WAS an awesome ride report, and I believe there was some amazing stuff still to come. I say that based on references in another ride report, that discussed crossing paths with Wesley and mentioned a couple of things. I hope Wesley is okay, as I'm sure we all do, and respect his decision to take this story down, and am thankful I was able to read it when it was up.

    Using my internet detective skills I have determined that Wesley is happily married and looking for a new bike.

    Well, Sherlock Tea.....you hit the nail on the head. I was looking forward to hearing Wesley's story of how he ended up married to a woman from the Pamir. The other report I mentioned featured a photo of the wedding! Your task, Sherlock Tea is to find that report and the photo! Unfortunately I can't remember the author's name, but it wasn't TeeBee or Walter or anyone from their amazing crew. If you or any member of your team is captured or killed the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of you or your mission. Good luck, Mr. Tea. :D

    Congratulations, Mr. Tea! Excellent work! With your fine work we can perhaps consider the story finished! Edited to say that while I was typing the OP himself commented! He promises to finish the story himself, and I hope he does, and that the earlier parts return. But even if they don't, it will be nice to have him conclude the story here.

    Hi Wesley - I'm glad to discover that you are still enjoying life.

    I'm curious about why you have deleted all your posts in this wonderful thread.
    The only explanation I can come up with is, that you plan to publish a book about the ride..?
    If you decide to share the reason with us I'm all :ear
