We fly out to Bangkok Sunday morning. I found a long term rental place to stash the Toyota for $3 a day. It's very insecure in a bad neighborhood, but, Hey, what's insurance for anyway?
After Bangkok we travel North to Chiang Mai and do some travel in the back country with cousin Bennett and our driver, Ken.
Then on to Saigon. I never saw any of Saigon except the Ton Son Nhut airbase. After that we travel up the Mekong river through Cambodia and then back to Hanoi and home.
I hope to get enough WIFI to publish a few blogs on nthe trip.
We'll be back late on the 30th of December in time to catch a New Year's Eve party...
Dreading the long plane rides to Asia, but looking forward to seeing some new faces and places.
