Almost 2 years ago I was was one of those waiting in anticipation for each of MJ's posts, sometimes a days apart..... It was brilliant then and defined some of the things I wanted to experience on a bike trip.

Sitting at the BFN airport today on my way home and without internet access I came across the PDF version that someone put together of this trip and I enjoyed just as much as the first time.

All I can say is farking brilliant !!!! :thumleft:  Brilliant trip, brilliant report, a brilliant time.

I only read this now after being alerted to it by TrailRider. This is my last day in the office for 2009, and I can truly say it was well spent. Magic stuff.

Words that spring to mind: Awesome; Inspiring; Heart-warming; Mettle; Soulful; Spirit... one can carry on forever.

Now MJ...

Did you ever write the book?

None of the PDFs are hosted anymore, does anyone have it & would be willing to mail it to me?
