Nice to say hello to you and Hiba at the MC show over the weekend. Best of luck to the two of you and thanks for sharing your adventures with us!

Hi Glen~~
I saw your FB post, and I was wondering if I read it right. Are you making the lecture circuit again? Do you have an itenerary, or are you just putting that together. If you need someone to lobby the Michigan dealers to get you to come here, I would be glad to help. And this series in January, can you hint at what network...Nat Geo, Discovery....
Hope to see you out there.

It was really nice for Hiba and I to meet so many of you inmates at the show also, and most of all to attend Doug's show. Is it my imagination or does that event get bigger every year?

Since corporations do pay more, I have confined my appearances the last two years to a business tour. After doing twenty-six shows nationwide a few years ago I did experience some burnout, especially from all of the air travel and airports. But I do miss the rider audiences who understand more what I am trying to say. So, yes please, lobby your local dealers and I'll get back out there in the early spring.

I guess I'm not the only one late to the party. I figured I'd read a couple chapters before turning in for the night yesterday and I put the bookmark in @3:45 this morning once you got out of Columbia. That was one intense ordeal. When I went to brush my teeth, I found myself spitting blood because I had worn a hole in the roof of my mouth with my tongue while I was reading. I have a tendency to dissolve into books, and I've put good ones down to find my self crying or sweating, but bleeding
was a first for me. I hope the rest of the book and the next one are just as good, but a bit less painful for you.

Thanks amigo. The sequel is even better as I finish looping the planet from Siberia to Africa meeting some of the best people you could imagine. The big discovery---although governments might not get along, people do.

But to keep him going, all of you FFs should buy a T-shirt

I'll get my chance to meet him next week when he comes to NYC for the IMS. I'll gladly support his cause by buying a couple of shirts. Maybe I'll get him a FYYFF shirt too!
