Ack!  Get me back to the Home Page

Chris' shortcut to avoid the National Highway . . .

I know where we are!    Riding through a remote village

. . . leads to Erin's puncture in a remote village.

OK, found the hole, now what?!   Someday, I may open my own repair shop


On the road to Pokhara, Chris slides out in an oil slick.  Nothing major, just a bent crashbar and a few new scratches on the BM

Of course, this all happened in front of a school

OK, so I'm a little shaken up and need a break

Simple pleasures
