World Nomad Games III In Kyrgyzstan.  Besides attempting to travel to every country in the world, I also occasionally get the opportunity to partake in some unique experiences. One of those events was the World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan. Over 1,500 athletes from 66 countries participated in the third WNG. As you might imagine, spectators are [...]

The engine puttered and the propellers came to life.  The engine growl reminded me a bit of the lawn mower I used to push during my college summers.  But this afternoon was going to be a bit more exciting then pushing a mower in the suburbs.  I was strapped in behind the pilot in the second [...]

Cheetah Conservation Fund In Namibia. A cheetah is the world’s fastest land animal, able to run at 70 mph (or 110 kph). I bet you knew this fact. Even more amazing, a cheetah will reach that speed in just three seconds. When the cheetah is running at full speed, each stride will reach 21 feet (6-7 [...]

Penduka And Planeterra, Teaming Up In Namibia.  I have been fortunate to spend time volunteering overseas in Armenia, Thailand, and Tanzania.  The lesson I learned is that I received much more than I gave.  It is an overused statement, but that is because it is true.  While I was volunteering and attempting to “give back”, I [...]

Five Days At The Russian Cosmodrome Baikonur For A Manned Space Launch Day Four. Today was going to be a bit low key compared to the previous, action-packed, day.  I crammed down some sort of egg creation for breakfast and met the group for our 10:00 am departure in Lenin Square.  The day was sunny and [...]
