Learning the ropes

NEPAL | Wed, 9 Apr 2014 | By high_altitide | Views [66]

I really didn't mean that title as a mountaineering double entendre.  I do not believe that I gave the city much justice on my last post because I forgot to mention the scheduled power outages.  The country seems to have been naughty in not ... Read more >

Trekking in the Annapurna Foothills

NEPAL | Fri, 4 Apr 2014 | By lifeinthefoodlane | Views [1079]

There is something about mountain hiking. It is liberating and energizing like few things are. I love mountain hiking, even if for me it comes with a good deal of huffing and puffing, a fair amount of under-the-breath swearing, and envious looks in the ... Read more >

Our "luggage" has to be completely disposable (anything that doesn't travel with is on bikes is thrown away). Hence the cardboard and cheap "Ghana must go" bags you see. Everything made it. The bags look like they took quite a beating, but they are 100% intact. I'm thankful to other bike people who gave us the idea to use these, and thankful to my girl Dynah for finding them on Amazon for us.
