Heh Gabe, he has been 2 days away for ages , anyway I've got a plan in that I'm feeling I'll not stay in Monglia as long as intended but will finish the trip and go back packing for a month in China.

Thanks for the word up anyway.

Kennichi....what bike are you riding? Would you like someone to ride it home for you? I'm supposed to be leaving for the caucasus in the next couple of days, but not feeling that excited about the region. If i could get a bike in UB and ride it home i would MORE THAN HAPPILY do that. I've done a couple of big trips and reckon i'll have a good couple months driving back.

I'm on +44 7838 480 954 if you are interested in giving me a ring in the next copuple days or am on joesheffer@hotmail.co.uk

One more thing...

Kennichi, my Dad's flying out to UB, arriving tomorrow, and our plan is for him to rent a bike for a few days and we'll do a trip together.

Bikes are available here for rent, but they're pretty steep. If you're game, I think he'd happily rent yours, you get some quids, and he gets a bike for a bit, how's about it?

As I said, I'm here in UB for a bit, and keen to meet up. There are three of us English bikers here at the moment, and all pretty tolerant of deficatory issues, give us a shout when you get back here.

We've got a phone that's usually on, number is 0037259336301

Last time you emailed me was on the 9th , my email works ok I just tested it with 3 accounts, I'll probably call you via skype around 10am , was fairly drunken last night and just convalessing currently and have no real plans currently , even considering leaving to Russia shortly ending the trip early to Vlad and exploring China backpacker style for a month and a half or so.

I seriously over estimated the time needed for this trip and thus I'm pretty much near the end but dont want to return till Mid August which seems somewhat far off.

Emailed new number

If you see this first, pls check your email, there's another number we can try.

Cheers, see you tonight/tomorrow.

Another thought...
We've probably seen each other around town, but without super-hero outfits on (bike gear) we've just civilians to one another I guess..
