So you're officially off? Hope it goes well and your health holds up. Make sure you drink lots of water because I would hate to be stuck with stones again.

Just because it's a zoo out there doesn't mean you have to view it from a cage!

Don't be an impulse buyer... afterall you have time..

Thanks guys. All is well. Landed in Tokyo okay but lots of waiting in long lines at immigration and then several hours with bike paperwork and re-assembling it in the airport. No sleep since California--dead tired. Met up with my cousin in the airport and later navigated my way through 30 miles of highways without signs in English to find the hotel in downtown Tokyo. A bit confusing but after some sleep I'll think more cleariy. Will decide what's next after zzzzzzs. Photos will be coming once I'm oragnized. At the moment I'm trying to decide what to jetison. Too much weight.
There's some additional info on my site www.strikingviking.net
Please send any emails direct at locovikingman@yahoo.com it's easier for me to reply.

Just got my book yesterday. My wife got pissed because I wouldn't put it down. It's one of the best reads this year. I can't wait for the next one.
