Hello from Taipei!

Finally here in Taipei, Taiwan. After nearly 25 hours of travel, I am here and almost recovered from the travel/ time difference. All four of my flights, yes 4, went smoothly enough... with the exception of having my knee caps just inches from my face for the entire time. Needless to say, I'm happy I'm not any taller, but bummed I don't get to travel 1st class!

Here are some pictures and captions to get you started. I have decided to try to create a Flickr account finally so that I can just have an online photo album. Stay tuned for more info on that.

Happy travelers at 5:00AM!

Sock du jour- Ride Clean
This picture doesn't really give you enough of an idea of how cramped life is for a guy who's 6'3" tall. However, you may notice that my knees touch the seat in front of me... for 15 hours straight on this flight alone!

In Nogoya, Japan- I love these signs.

My boss, Joe Hawk, interviewing my replacement.

Taipei at night- from the front of the hotel.

Home away from home for the next week.

Ok, time to go look around before the working part of the day kicks in.

Welcome, and enjoy CKS park before they demolish the walls and melt down the CKS statue. Look forward to seeing the Masi bikes at the show.

You don't even get to fly business class on those transpacific flights? Man, that is rough.
Oh well, at least that little smiley guy who might replace you doesn't look like he will need much legroom.

Seriously though, have a good trip. I can't wait to see your reports from the show.

how do I get a travelator?

Tell your replacement that he needs to wear socks so he can continue the sock du jour!

I hear you on the leg-room aspect. I can feel my whole body getting fidgety at that picture.
Have fun

Glad you got there safely. Can't wait to see all the rest of the updates.

I'm only 69 inches and I feel cramped on airplanes.
