The mission begins.
Bike and gear boxed loaded. Headed to the Airport!
Hold the plane!
Down to the wire. Last seat.
Bike NOT lost.
How happy was I to see this waiting for me at baggage claim?! Addis Ababa, we made it!
SURPRISE! It's a .... pink bike?
Had no idea. Hilarious. Astacianna and I decided it was T-Mobile Magenta!
Can I build a bike?
Hoping it holds up once Charlie puts the miles on it!
It was beyond cool to see Charlie again. We were both pumped.
Telling the WILD story...
So, your wife texted me … and long story short … here I am with a MAGENTA bike!
Awesome night with the crew!
Memories are made of moments just like this.
Together at last: Charlie and his Bike.
This is where I relinquish possession of the bike. Ride well, my friend!
Happily ever ....
Off he goes. Over the ridge, out of the Afar region and beyond….
