    Thanks, well-wishers!

    Today is quilting day. Two days later I'm away. Not without the quilt though, so it will take as long as it has to. Link to that thread in the OP. Updates hopefully tonight or tomorrow.

    Tell me more about the reading you recommended. Link? In return, have a link to the website of a guy I know who cycled the world over four years: worldwidebikeride.com

    I'll be following his route from Istanbul onwards, more or less.

    I should also say that, although I'm not doing my ride for charity, anyone enjoying my blog is encouraged to put a couple of dollars towards that guy's cause. He's only (maths...) about $1500USD from his target.
    I just sort of stumbled into it at my library one day when I was browsing. As for a link--Here you go...

    There's always something that breaks on the bike and it looks that way with the hammock. I've got dyneema on a dutch fly for one end of the tarp (Evenk knot the other end), and the fly looks like it will fray the cord. Any advice out there?

    Otherwise, I've been sleeping like a baby. 10 hours last night - makes the next day so much more enjoyable!

    I slept in a tree in Greece last night.
