Gary…Andrea (Amaya) and her husband Eric have been touring the world on Bicycles for about 6 years….Must be the North Daktoa blood in her veins….She has published articles in Adventure Cycling Magazine…and they have a web site…”Worldbiking.info”…that will fill you in on their travels…They have been to places from Africa to the southern most tip of South America….that I would not venture to…. They had one of their bicycles stolen in Bolivia….for example…

We hear from them over the internet…every week or so…

I would check their web site for more details.. more photos from our time Bicycle Touring in Indonesia.

This is such a remarkable description of an experience most of us will never
know.  The personal comforts and discomforts of such an aggressive mission taken on by these two adventurers bedazzles me.  They have been to places
I’ve been, but they have done this by their own physical stamina, via bikes. I did mine the easy way by airplane. When they talked about Borneo, where few of us have seen, it reminded me of a flight from Thailand to Borneo on our way to the Philippines  and thence to Japan to deliver an airplane. We landed at a place on Borneo called Kotakinabalu. The hotel was fine, the food was good and I did not
have to think about peddling  a bike to the other side to catch a ferry.  I salute Andrea and her guy for this high adventure epic of personal strength and determination. Glenn Williams, Jerry, their sister Neva and brother Wayne were so much a part of Dunseith during my youth which is long gone. It is a gift to read of and see such dramatic effort to meet personal goals.  This is a courageous undertaking in my view, and I’m proud to know that the kin of Dunseith citizens have this much courage to do what they are doing. So it is, Bill Hosmer

I’d like to share an experience with you about drinking and driving.

As you well know, some of us have been known to have had brushes with the authorities
on our way home from the odd social session over the years.
A couple of nights ago, I was out for a few drinks with some friends at the Marriott
Hotel and had a few too many beers and some rather nice red wine.
Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit,
I did something I’ve never done before: I took a bus home. Sure enough I passed a
police road block but as it was a bus, they waved it past.
I arrived home safely without incident which was a real surprise, as I have never
driven a bus before and am not sure where I got it
