Hey Doug,

Very cool build, as usual! I see you are now in my home land now. Have fun and all best to you and Poly.

Cheers,
Pete (Петър)

Doug,

How long will you stay in Bg?

I'll also be there in between 26th May and 4th of June.

And after that I'll back to Turkiye, please do not hesitate to contact if you need something.

You should duck while you still can, I predict that comment won't go over well.

Doug will take this in good humor as with everything, but I'll be waiting on some of the other replies.

(BTW, check out Doug's other ride reports, linked in his signature. Nobody here is responsible for you ducking the rest of your life, loosing your job, divorce, non-payment of bills, etc due to the engaging narratives.)

Omg

Oh no.... no offense meant. The moment I saw the route map Doug had planned and Road to Bones, I got reminded of Long way around.

But I know Long way around is no way comparable to this ride. Those guys rode in Beamers with two backup trucks, loads of spares, sponsors n camera crew.

I have gone thru one of Doug's previous ride reports n he is truly inspiring.

Hope now other ppl in the forum will forgive me for my previous dumb comment :-(

Okay, I suppose I should add that Doug has a good sense of humor, as long as (the royal) you has a sense of humor as well.
