Hope you survive L.A. for camping gear find a R.E.I. store. There is a good one in Seattle Washington. You can pick up tools in a sears store, basic metric wrenches and such. Find a well stocked motorcycle shop for some good tire irons if you don't have any yet. Wal-Mart has all sorts of cheap stuff...which is sometimes what you need. Make it on up to Montana and we can ride some fun jeep trails before they get too dusty. Welcome to the U.S.A.

I liked the pictures on your website. Unfortunately my Korean is not as good as my English so I can't read the stories.
Why don't you write a short summary of your stories in English for us stupid foreigners that don't know how to read Korean :-)
I'm a Dutchman but I write my travelstories in English so all my friends can read them.

When will you be in Europe ?

Have a safe trip en enjoy seeing the world.
