Go West Young Man


This is just a quick post letting you know there might not be a post for a while. Tina is at home and I’m heading on a two/three week trip to western China along the Silk Road with the goal of making to Kashgar (Kashi on that map) – a melting pot of Uighur, Kazakh, Urdu and Tajik peoples. I hope to take the train along the northern route then take buses along the southern route, possibly crossing the Taklamakan Desert – a rough idea of the route. A couple towns have internet, but most don’t even seem to have much of anything. Hopefully I can post something along the way.


  1. Good luck on the bachelor portion of your trip, Stuart. Thanks for the pics and the funny and informative stories. As I’m sitting here this Maoning, it’s probably almaost tomaorrow where you are.

    We’ll hope to see Tina while she’s stateside.

  2. Stuart – I miss you! Julia and I were just talking about how much we miss your laugh. Travel safe, my friend!

  3. I would like to join you. Let me know where you are in this journey? I wish u all the good times!!
