Our last expedition together - circa 2013
With 24 hours remaining until we start our expedition, all three of us are desperately paring down our gear to find the right mixture of warmth and weight (or lack thereof). And trying to figure out what a Tughrik is (bonus points if you know what it is without consulting Google).
We hope you will join us on our little adventure - this time there are three ways to do so (even us old guys have a bit of tech savvy).
We will continue to blog when we can, but due to the remote nature of our trek, we are unsure how often we will have cell or wifi service. The goal is to post as much as possible, and hopefully we can provide some great pictures along the way... This will not be like the Nepali teahouses where we could sit in front of a warm fire and access spotty wifi every evening!
Our Twitter feed will be active however, as Adam has a satellite communicator that allows us to text directly to our feed. We hope to do this at least once a day, so tune in often to see what kind of trouble we can get into on the steppe!
Finally, you can see exactly where we are, and even send us a question or a message, by clicking on the Location Tracker link above or following the instructions on our home page. We are always happy to speak to someone from home - after our day is done, there is a lot of sitting around and after playing Hearts for a few hours, it's nice to engage in conversation that doesn't debate the best rock to hide behind for privacy (you get my drift!).
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
