Bon voyage!

See you all later. I'm off on an adventure. I will be tweeting when possible so check the right column of this blog. I'll also be posting on Instagram. I hope you enjoy following me along on the trip.

And here is a map to follow along with. I'll be starting in Lima and working my way northward.

I can't believe this is going to be shown in theaters.

Visiting Iqaluit

I've been meaning to post this for a while. Last month, while on Maui, I had lunch with Pete D of CarEnvy and now ContraVex fame. Pete has had some adventures, including visiting this out-of-the-way settlement. Enjoy.

I leave in five days!

Now, I'm researching bus companies for my Cali to Medellin leg and Medellin to Turbo leg.

Chinese genealogy research service

For Chinese people, especially those who live outside of China, researching one's ancestors is an almost impossible task. But I read about this service in The Economist. I might try them out.

14,741 miles by bus

I leave for Lima next week. I started this quest from the Oakland Greyhound station in 2007. I will be done by the end of January 2018.
