Mondo - where are they now?

We all know that Austin Vince is still around in the overland biking world, but what about the rest of the Mondo crew? Anybody know what they are up to now? Are any of them on this site? How did the trip affect their lives? Just curious.

Avoid "so called stars" and do your own thing. This is travel biking - you don't need/want anyone else. Especially....

Be free, be yourself.

He was quite forgiving!
