If you’re interested in this trip, joining forces on something, or shoestring travel in the strictest sense, I would love to hear from you, and can best be reached at

except without those underscores – it’s sad trying to have a polite conversation with a bot or a scammer.

Some of the most welcome emails I receive are from people who either have done or are contemplating similar trips.  If this is you, I’d be very happy to make your acquaintance or bounce ideas around.  Just bear in mind, especially if you’re thinking about doing something like this for the first time, that you likely know more about me from this site than I know about you, that I’m not a doctor or physical fitness expert, and that knowing what you want and what you’re capable of is an important part of the conversation.
