It's a Date!

Man am I exhausted. Since getting a second job at the local bike shop, I haven't had a day off in several weeks, with no sign of one in the horizon. It's cold. My body is sore from biking. My sleep pattern is eschew. Man is it good to feel alive!

Just heard from Mohan in Nepal, the dates have been set! I will be in Nepal from February 9th through May 18th. It's all starting to come together. Now that the dates are known, I now have deadlines to set. It's all so overwhelming and exciting all at the same time.

How Goes Nepal?

Planning is still underway for the trip. So far my activities while I am there are for sure going to include bicycle repair and tune-ups. Which is cool because I just got a second job at the local bike shop.

As far as dates go, I'm looking at the second week of February to the third week of May.

I've been doing a lot of studying up on Hindu culture, cross-cultural mission and bicycle mechanics. I have a stack of 10 or so books I'm trying to get through at the moment. I am praying that all of this head knowledge will be easily applied in the field.
