With those mountains it looks like a beer commercial

Thanks for all the pics and stories, Doug! They're truly an inspiration and they've helped keep me sane at work lately

I'd definitely wait until you get home, imagine if you got stopped in country with THAT! You'd be thrown under the jail and accused of who knows what!Enjoying the hell out of your RR Doug, stay safe and sane!

Just keeps getting better

This is your best ride report by far. Absolutely spectactular photography, and much-improved narration.

We all heaved a sigh of relief as you deftly appeased the bandits. Close call!

You again make the point that we humans seem to get along much better w/o the benefit of our shepherding governments.

RTW Doug paraphrased

"It isn't how much money you have, it is what you do with it."

Doug - keep that up and you could find yourself appointed to the Council of Economic Advisors.
