Hi,

I started lurking on this forum a couple of months ago while preparing for my trip, that I just started January 1. Long story short, I set out to sail around the world from San Diego on October 1 and hit a hurricane, breaking my rudder. With no steering, out in the middle of the ocean, I had to get rescued by a freight ship that took me to China. I didn't have enough money for another boat, so I bought a mountain bike. Currently in southern China, but should be in Vietnam within 4 or 5 days. I'm posting blogs, pictures, videos, and grid coordinates almost daily of my journey, which will hopefully take me to the UK, where I plan to sail back to the US.

Thought you guys might be interested, friend of mine said I should post here. Should be a pretty cool trip. Bike is a Cannondale F3 hardtail mountain bike.

my website/ blog is www.openbluehorizon.com

Peace,

Ronnie

I'll try the crazyguyonabike.com thing. I would love some company. Have a few friends that want to join me at different parts, so that would be cool. Taking a day of rest right now in Zhan Jiang, China. Anyone here wanna join? should be in Vietnam in a few days.

ETA- Ho Chi Minh- End January/ early February
Bangkok- 10 days after that, and THEN
fly to Calcutta, India- ride across India for a month, THEN-
fly to Dubai, etc etc

anyone wanna join in the fun? no better way to escape the recession than to be on a bike in a foreign country, haha.
