Thank you!

Wow! Words fail me. Your writing and videos are awesome! Thanks again for sharing!

Glad to see MoBill rocking the NJ ATGATT shorts in Manali.

Please keep it coming!

Nice Videos mark. You are a talented guy: Writer, Rider, Photographer now Director, all while riding the world. Way to go.

BTW - What Video Editor, and hosting service, are you using on the road. The results look great to me.

Mark:

I seldom make comments on ride reports but yours is an exception. I only discovered it a couple of weeks ago and have been glued to the screen since. I am not an adventurer but I like your attitude when things go wrong it only makes for more memorable experiences. I am deeply sorry for your loss and all the time thinking if only Chris could be there to share this RTW ride with you.

You have a way with storytelling and bringing out your emotions. It's almost like we are thinking your thoughts. I love photos from that side of the world, and esp your video diaries. You are an inspiration, and I too look forward to your future travels.

did I mention that I love your videos ?

Great vid Mark!

I love the hi-5 on Tanglang La after MoBill gets the pic!

Watching the vid made me realize how much scenery I missed while I was there. The Rhotang actually looks like fun when it's not raining!

I am a Mac guy. So for these videos I just use iMovie. I use SmugMug (Baldy ) for photos but continue to post my movies on youtube so that it is easy for others to view. Video editing takes lots of time and disk space so I have an extra hard drive with me, create the movie and then delete the prep videos off my computer to maintain the disk space!


I try to always use music from the country or area ..... as that is part of the experience.

June 6th McleodGanj

Enjoying McleodGanj, But it is very busy with the Dali Lama in town.

The afternoons some clouds and light drizzle ..... Make for Double Rainbow WOW



Stayed at Green Hotel, had to pay more because things are booked up, and they had a locked garage for my motorcycle. Room with a view. Bit of a splurge for India. It is wild that you can pay from $3-4 dollars a night to $30 night with similar places. All about location! if you look a bit you can find some real deals. Here I just did not want to bother.....



Lots of prayer flags.



A temple in town has Prayer wheels all around. People walk clockwise to spin the wheels and pray.






The wheels go all around the building on all 4 sides.

http://radioman.smugmug.com/Other/IN.../IMG3501-L.jpg

This is a busy town. Lots of street vendors selling local produce to all kinds of goods and services.







Lots of tourists.... So they have lots of stuff for sale.



Free Tibet flags everywhere.

Mark, as always amazing video, photos and writing. I think that this spiritual journey you are on you could not have picked a more spiritual place to travel. I really hope we can hook up in Peru for an evening as I would love to hear first hand of this part of your adventure.

As always ride safe my friend.

Cheers, Jody
