That many shots to the head, I'm surprised you
even remember being in Philly. Your weakness still embarrasses
Lap dances - $400
Cheese steak - $6
Flyers Tickets - $200
Beer - $600
Parking the rental car 'on top' of the No Parking sign - Priceless.
Wasn't that your 30th? The story of
your Italian friend, and the bone-hawk monk, reminded me of that
trip. I don't care if you like my shoes, at the urinal it's eyes
forward - freak! P.S. - Where's my Opium?
Cheers ... Hedges
Philly, didn't they win in overtime on a penalty shot? They still
didn't fix that sign a year later!!! A warning to all 29 year olds,
avoid Nathan and Brian on your 30th B-day. As for the opium, it got
delayed in Bangkok as the monks there wanted to check the

based on the trivia section of the
specifically #3C. I believe Matt is
afraid to golf with me.
Matt is this true?
or do you think you are golfing so
well that it would be a waste of your time.
Throw it down Matt!!!

Nice Pics Heffy.
I was kinda confused as you and the
archery target look alot alike.
shall we send you a razor.
Damn that che hat must reek.
postee can only be that of Potter the great Notre Dame Hunchback
lover. Or maybe Craig. Anyway I had to leap from the wall to catch
the arrow in my neck but this is easier to do at high altitudes. I
miss you brother and hope you are taking good care of the Fugi!!!

Jeff, in regards to Five-O being
concerned for your well being. We (Me,Rod and Todd, Bubba and
Potter and Craig) have sent advance pictures of the towel cart
incident. (anybody wants to see these pics please request at firstname.lastname@example.org).
with a note for locals to be on the lookout for the likes of you.
get the Lay's? I sent them care of the Dali Lama.
also thinking of sending you one of those big fluffy old lady bike
seat covers.(let us know)
In response to
the Five O.....the towel cart incident was one of the greater
moments in my life and I hope you speak of it in high regard. I
can't find the Dalai Lama anywhere so I met the Panchan Lama and
tried to kick his ass. That didn't go to well so I settled for some
Tibetan home cooking which laid me to rest for a day and a half -
man I could go for a steak at the Keg!!!

you want to impress the local ladies, tell them:
the best and safe travels.
In response to
respect your trying to make my trip more interesting, but I haven't
the nerve to show anyone of the female gender this little message. I
can only assume it means something like 'I foreigner with big cock'
- anyway sorry to get sappy but I have gal who I love very much. But
great to hear from you - we will have to go for a couple of beers
when I get back. This trip is truly amazing....

So you finally rode your bike long enough to develop saddle
sores. Technically speaking the sores are a subterranean pimple and
the cure is through hygiene. The best way to prevent them is to wipe
the postrate area with rubbing alcohol before putting on clean
shorts and after evacuating. I don't know what the availability of
rubbing alcohol is, but pimple soap is a so so subsititute. As for
your hands going numb may I suggest a little hard work and some
tissue for your tears. Shut up and ride. Oh ya I'm towing Lava
around in a wheelbarrow straped to my bike just so you don't have
any ideas of putting the hurt on me when you get back. Brat
Thanks Brat -
or is it Bret.... typo's suck eh! Well the rubbing alcohol only gave
me a headache. I bought another bottle and found it works better if
you rub it on your ass. As for the tears I hold them back as the
Chinese laugh at me when I cry. I think you will always have a bit
of an edge when it comes to riding but I intend to punish you as
best I can when I get home. Oh and better to walk Lava, you can see
what happened to Jet (kidding).

Matt, lets go golfing. oh...Hi Jeff. Colin.
Miss you big

Man, I really do love reading your posts...they're so entertaining
and descriptive!! Wanted to let you know that I got your postcard
last week...thank you so much!! Awesome pagoda, I hope you're
taking lots of pics of those!! Amazing architecture out
there!! I hope your ass starts to feel better...saddle sores
really suck!! Slow down and enjoy the sights...you never know
when you'll be back so don't miss anything
cool. Besafe and have a great time!!
Always thinking about you!
geekette, it sounds like the cd is corrupt sohow but it was a copy
and I have already sent another cd of different pictures. Ass feels
better as I stopped in Xi'an for about six days - thanks for the
concern though- haha
PS - Dave says Hi too!!!

I just can't picture you biking all
over China, the last vivid memory I have of you is peeking through
the nursery door with Michele, watching your mom breastfeeding
you! Sounds like a great trip, I love your commentaries, they're
hilarious. Is there anything else to drink in China or do they
only have BEER? Take care. Sandi Braico (Berg)
how are you doing?? I heard you had a baby boy - congrats. I guess
you probably aren't getting much sleep these days. Yes the do have
alternatives to beer, poisened water or this kind of rice wine which
is beyond disgusting. Actaully they have street vendors that have
coolers full of drinks and ice cream and they are everywhere. Even
in the middle of nowhere, so you always a few KM from getting a
drink... thanks for writing!!!

Jeff, your trip sounds so amazing - I
can't wait to see the photos. What an awesome adventure you are on -
it's very inspiring! As for the numb hands - it's your back, try
pulling your shoulders down and back, it should help (massage would
be good too) Take it easy, we miss you (I know, hard to believe)
Thanks, I got a
couple of massages and lowered the seat which has helped but I have
a pinched nerve sort of around the shoulder blade which is probably
the cause. I miss you a great deal and because I am cycling I think
about you and Bret quite often. We should do a Tour of France next

Hey Jeff - I found the Ultimate High
(the book...) and read it - can't say it inspired me to go to China but he definitely set some lofty
goals (pun intended if desired).
Glad to hear you're slowing it down some to enjoy what is
around. I do look forward to your posts.
Kelley (as in Barnard)
Goran was a
very unique idividual to say the least and I am glad you read the
book. I am also happy for the advice you gave me - always carry
around toilet paper!!!! haha it's so true!!! I hope you and your
daughters are doing great and thanks for writing. As I mention to
Tom, it means a lot to hear from people while I'm out here!!

I am enjoying your trip. Not many people quit a good job to fullfill
their dreams. Hats off to you. How many people are with you on your
trip? I spoke to Vivian last evening. Sounds like things are going
OK for her. Anyway, just thought I would drop you a few words of
support and a few atta boys. Take care and keep the writing going. I
look forward to your next posting. Safe travels.
Thomas A. Ruddiman
Hey Tom, thanks
for the encouragement! It means a great deal to hear from you and I
will take the atta boys as believe some days I need em badly...

Jeff, we love reading your stories but hey careful on the politics.
You're in China - freedom of expression is why we are lucky to live
where we do.... Michele
Oh we only talk
about Mao and the cultural revolution, it's my form of re-eductation
for the re-educated.

Jeff I need
you to come back right now!!!
Craig is here on Friday and
my liver is quaking.!!!!
I think I will recruit Potter to help
with the Bastard.
Saw a Licence plate last week that
I got you some wavy Lays but I ate
them. I'll try again soon.
Always Thumbs Up!!!
Kropp on top!!!
You ate my
'Lays' - well no rest for the wicked. Extend the Ontarian's stay!

We don't know what kind of hand signals your using so we will
send you some Cantonese/Mandarin slang. Yanse lang!! Mud lun yeah?
Stop ordering the chef special no matter how cute he looks (inside
joke with Colin and Ryan). We will share in due time after you
conquer the big hill nearer the end of your journey. Please bring me
an empty bottle from the backside of Mt. Everest.
Remember to yell you geek. It is the
method of communication to enforce your will (as you found out with
the cabby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) As always, safe journey,
plenty of laughs, and grab some "bo ba."
Dan & Ryan
I just laughed my ass
off when I read this. As for the words of advice, the dialect keeps
changing so nothing I learn seems to make any sense to them. I'll
look for some empties at everest but really, you guys should be the
experts at collecting empties (cheap shot - sorry). Miss you guys.....

Just finished reading your updates!! Your adventure sounds
awesome! Iactually could picture myself there seeing what you were
seeing...yourstories are very descriptive, although the grammar and spelling are
a bitdistracting but I always seem to understand what you're trying to
say. Whatan excellent experience to have!! Keep the updates coming - I
can hardly wait to see pics of the Wall...
I'm so proud of you for setting your mind to something and
actually doing it!! Too bad you didn't put that kind of effort into your
work!!! hahaha...I miss you around here!! There's no one else to pick
Take care of yourself and have a great time!!
In response to Heather, I apologize for the
grammer and mistyping, yahoo doesn't have a spell check I am aware of.
Anyway I'm glad you are enjoying the stories, I got a couple of

Sounds like your having a blast! I love the website! I will be in
Vancouver in the beginning of July. I will miss you there this year,
as I am staying in a hotel with great Laundry hampers (Inside
Ontarian drunkeness stuff). Anyways, I am glad to see you going
after a dream. You said you were gonna do this, and you are.
Hats off to you bro, and take care. (I hope you took a lifejacket
from the plane!)
PS. One day you should come out and
conquer the Great Ontario Mountains! Ha Ha!
you Craig, it's too bad I couldn't be towel boy this year, however
Mark Potter seems ready to move to the next level. Have fun in

Okay, am I the only one reading this stuff and
wondering how you're going to last 6 months? Have you figured out
the chinese words that mean "crazy westerner" are yet? So
what are you eating (besides KFC)?
In response to my sisters
e-mail, the KFC is different, it is the Chinese KFC, so really
it's local if you know what I mean. I haven't been called
'crazy westerner' either, well at least to the best of my
knowledge. Actually whenever I get an English menu, I write
down what I like in pinyan and Chinese characters (don't
laugh). It actually works and they like the Chinese
Characters, I can tell by the way the chef is usually
sharpening his knife when he looks in my general direction.
