    Safe travels you two. If your travels bring you to Montana, then you will have a dry place to rest.

    Hitting the road once again... always hate the days leading up to a new adventure. Packing and getting the house in order. Always a scramble!

    Heading to wine country. Some of the oldest vineyards in the world for a couple of weeks with a car then meeting up with a group led by Stefan Knopf for the next 3 weeks for the Garden tour on bikes and some safari adventures. Oh, did I mention we are headed to South Africa?!

    New continent for us! Hepatitis typhoid malaria oh my! Renting a bike for this adventure and I am sure Gina will be documenting on FB. I’ll see what I can do here depending on WiFi and sobriety. I mean time...

    8 hour layover in Dubai. We left the airport, took a cab, and went to town for dinner! Amazing place by the tallest tower. It was outside dining with a fantastic view. Okay, it was over 90 and humid. But that did not take away from the adventure. Just made us moist... now killing time at the airport before the 10 hours to Cape Town. It was 14 from Seattle to here. Using an app to adjust to time changed called time shifter. A little melatonin then coffee with light then dark then no caffeine... crazy but simple to do. We will let you know if it works for us... currently we are 12 hours from AK time. 2:12 am.

    Jermo/Gina, fondly thinking of all the roads and all the countries we all have traveled together and apart, yet we’re not that far away. We’re connected here. Pterodactyls are truly Global. Two weeks and we may have crossed paths in Dubai! RogR, CJ and I are headed for a ride on the Mae Hong Son Loop in NW Thailand. While our CONUS brothers and sisters are riding the southeast and west, you Guys are off to the large and spectacular continent of Africa! SO cool! Anxiously waiting those awesome pics you guys always post. Will try and get RogR to post a couple pics of our journey as well.
