    1. Too great to hear from you, John. Yes, looking forward to those Bali breakfasts to be just around the bend. Wheels in motion to return to Taiwan. Will be in touch!

    Great interview! A few new story gem, a few wistful reminders. And it sounds like you have the rest of the summer lined up with some fine friends and adventures .

    I did not realize that you were unable to get back to Taipei. Still true? Covid feels distant but it’s obviously that “shark bumping our boats”.

    I am keeping my fingers crossed that a trip planned for the month of September to the 5 Stans, (Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, etc.) will run. Turkmenistan is still closed to travelers due to covid. Sigh.

    I will be in Chq the last week of August and get to see Syd a bit again.

    Happy trails! Tx for getting in touch! Stay safe, find some good internet trades,

    1. Hey, Jane – great to hear of your trip to the Stans. That just sounds amazing. Yes, still watching and waiting for Taiwan to allow foreigners back in. Safe travels!

    Neal; I just finished the radio interview; terrific ! You did a great job of describing the trip, as well as your own personal journey thru life; bot great stories. If it‘s not too late to get on your travel calendar, I would love to extend an invitation to include Paducah on it. Having enjoyed your company (twice) on the way to NY, we would love to show you more of Paducah’s hospitality and passion for the river. I’m copying Polly Brasher, the new Director at our River Discovery Center, and encouraging her to catch the interview. Polly is just recently onboard here, but brings a world of river experience with her. What a great opportunity it would be for her to team with you on a program at the RDC for the local river folks ! Please let us know if a stop here might be possible.

    1. Ken, greetings from New York and thanks for the kind words and for thinking of me. I do love and miss Paducah and the River Discovery Center. Will message you soon privately. All best, Neal

    Hey Neal, thanks for sharing this interview. I enjoyed hearing about your feelings, scary moments, happy moments and the culmination of such an inspiring trip. It was a fun to “follow” you across the country during the journey. You did a great job of summarizing it for the interview!

    It was good to see you at the MoRP Rendezvous.
