Flooding in Thailand

Flying into Bangkok last night, I can attest to the fact that much of the country of Thailand is under water from unusually heavy monsoon rains. The devastation is widespread and understated by the media. It looks to me like it will take months to dry out what appears to be a lake stretching as far as the eye can see, even from 20,000 feet. The cost to the economy and worldwide delivery of parts for everything from computers to cars to cameras will be enormous. The Thai Red Cross Society welcomes your donation to help the flood victims.

Off to explore Southeast Asia

Care to explore southeastern Asia for 4 months? Then tag along with Jeremiah as he heads off into this fascinating part of the world, solo, on a smaller, 250cc motorbike.

Moab to Buena Vista

Belgian-native Jan Marc once again joins Jeremiah as they go off-road through the redrock canyons of Moab, Utah to the high alpine Rocky Mountains of Buena Vista, Colorado. Along the way they meet up with old friends Uwe Krauss from Germany and Eric Sargent from Albuquerque, NM. Dual-sport barbecue’s never smelled so good!

Trinity Site

For just a few hours each year the United States Air Force allows visitors into what was once the nation’s most top-secret spot: the Trinity Site. Jeremiah and El Viento head out on their first ride of 2011 to find out what makes this place unique--and horrifying.

Journal updated with three new stories

The JOURNAL is now up to date through last autumn’s Sands of Time excursion, with today’s addition of The Pollinator, To Hell and Back Part 2, and Tarantula Xing! More posts will be added as the journey continues and time allows. Your feedback is encouraged.

New website goes live!

Jeremiah and El Viento have spent a lot of time on the road since returning to the USA from Brazil in May 2007, but haven’t had a chance to update the website--until now.

The all-new has completely revamped the original mytripjournal/jeremiahsjourney website: There’s a whole new look and feel with easier navigation and more geographical information and maps; ALL of the Journal Posts have been revised and expanded (so returning visitors should reread titles they’re already familiar with); there are several new Journal Posts with more on the way; and there are now easy ways for you to contribute.

This project has been a huge personal undertaking, but will facilitate more frequent updates as the Journey continues. Please enjoy exploring the new site and be sure to offer your
