Exciting new global adventures planned

August will find me in Bolivia with the designer and builder of this website, Julian Cook (my “tech guy”).  The plan is to hike from the Andes Mountains to the Amazon, using donkeys and porters and, of course, camping out each night.  Then, we’ll be riding on mountain bikes down what is called today “the world’s most dangerous road.”

 In 1985, there was another road, in south Thailand,  called then the ”world’s most dangerous road,” and I walked some 600 kilometers on that one.  Sure enough, I came within five inches of losing my head to a machete-welding road bandit in the jungles there.  But this unpaved cousin in Bolivia is not dangerous because of murderous bandits.  Rather, it’s called such because of all the twists and turns and landslides and dropoffs hundreds of feet into the “Slaughter Valley” below.  Sixty-four kilometers long, it is known officially as the Coroico Road. 

And as if the hike and bike journey weren’t enough to put me in the ground, we’re also planning on a zip-line outing and a side-trip to the world’s largest salt desert.  So be  watching this site in late August for film, photos, and stories from South America’s sole landlocked nation.

Then, in September, it’s off to China for meetings with the Excel5 Corporation.  I can’t tell you at this time what is being planned there for me in 2013.  But, let’s say it is going to be INCREDIBLE.  If the meetings planned for September go as hoped, this will rival the Worldwalk in adventure and stories.  Do stay tuned…..
