Wanted to send out a special thanks to Nicole for a terrific presentation! Even this grumpy old man that will travel no further then the dirt of Washington State found it to be a informative discussion.

Lots of participation and useful exchanges on topics ranging from health insurance, Spot/Garmin trackers, culture, banking, food, border crossing and bureaucracy of travel ... useful, even if all your doing is crossing the US border let alone some other far off destination (like Timbuktu?).

Cheers

Comrade Martin
