Bishkek or Bust

Greetings from Kyrgystan!

It is truly a beautiful place!  If I didn't know any better I would think I was in a North Eastern forest. Giant spruce looking trees, tall deciduous trees and and lower story shrubs make it look just as pretty as a post card!

There are these crazy looking crows that have a white bib, I can't get a picture of them here at the base, but I am told that they are everywhere.

I flew in with a nice Russian family, and they have a hotel that caters to moountain climbers and skiers.  I mentioned that the fishing in the rivers must be something and they confirmed that there are small trout like fish in the mnountain streams.

I have to try to get back up here and spend a couple of weeks exploring this area!

I hope I can get some pictures from around here, but I am constrained by rules on bases.

I'll keep you all posted!

Good googly moogly Al!

It begs the questions "what in the heck are you doing there?"

Although we understand if you can't tell us.

Albert,

It would be cool if you got a chance to go out fishing in the streams. Keep us posted.

Yo Rasch,
Where you @ Kid? Have you pulled into A'stan yet? REALITY CHECK buddy! I'm sure that your administrative/clerical [Contractor] duties will keep you safe and out of Harm's Way, rather "in the rear with the gear" as they say. Anyway, it's been more that a week since your last transmission. Send us all a "holla" back here in the States to let us know you've arrived safely. Be careful.

The amount of hunting and traveling you do is confounding. Is this a full-time job for you? Not that doing something you love is a job, of course.

Vastly looking forward to pictures and tales of exploration. God bless.
