Good read. Thanks for putting your adventure into a book.
Looking forward to the next read.
And thanks to you too for buying a book. Please remember there is a sequel...

BTW amigo, you have one classy daughter who has clearly been raised with good manners. That letter meant a lot to me.

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.

Watched snippets of 'Banged up abroad' last night -Australian time - in between Charley Boremans 'Sydney to Tokyo by any means'.

Hats off to you young fellow - a harrowing experience.

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!

You'll really like Doug's presentation. Unfortunately, the show bosses don't give him enough time as the audience I was in was rightfully demanding more.
