A Day with Rain

Posted by on Sep 18, 2012 in India | Comments Off on A Day with Rain

It’s cold, wet and rainy here in Manali. It rained most of yesterday, too, but cleared up long enough for Buddhi and I to walk down the hill in Old Manali and have dinner without getting too wet. Tandoori chicken and a Banana Lassi. Yum! The droning downpour was terrific for sleeping, and I stayed in bed all cozy for about 11 hours! We were going to head out this morning to attend a local festival so I could...

Posted by on Sep 16, 2012 in India | 2 comments

Below is another video, also from our last day of riding on the Leh-Manali Highway traversing Rohtang Pass. This video  shows typical riding conditions in the Himalayas of northern India. Here’s what Wikipedia says about Rohtang Pass: Rohtang Pass (Hindi: रोहतांग दर्रा) (Bhoti: Rohtang , lit: pile of corpses,[1] due to people dying in bad weather trying to cross the pass) (altitude 3,978 m or 13,051 ft),[2] is a high mountain pass on the eastern Pir Panjal Range of the...

I’m taking a few rest/catch-up days in Manali, after our two-week motorcycle excursion through the Indian Himalayas with Buddhi Singh Chand and Motorcycle Expeditions.

India!

OMG! I’m in India! I am touring with www.MotorcycleExpeditions.com and riding the highest roads in the world –in the Himalayas!

I may not have too much access to email and communications, but check my Facebook page for the SPOT messages I send, and you can be sure that I will post...

Posted by on Aug 30, 2012 in Continental Divide Trail, USA | 5 comments

After changing a flat front tire,       I headed out in the afternoon and picked up where we had left off–just north of Grants, NM in the Gilas.       Can you see the storm rolling in above?...
