globalrecon.org press release 17 may 2007

on friday 18 may 2007 global reconnaissance organization [www.globalrecon.org] agent recon:one will be departing gro headquarters in boston, massachusetts, on a coast to coast to coast roadtrip of the united states of america with scheduled stops at reconbases in ligonier, pennsylvania; austin, texas; san francisco, california; and golden, colorado. he expects to return to boston at the end of june 2007. this trip will be organized under heading recontrip 2007.01.[20070518.200706..].

recon:one will be traveling over 7000 miles [11265 km] on gro vehicle for.great.justice, a 1991 kawasaki vulcan vn750 motorcycle. per usual, he will be documenting the trip, posting photos, trip notes, and statistics under the gallery and itinerary sections of the official gro website, www.globalrecon.org.

the global reconnaissance organization would like to extend its sincere thanks to joshua calvi for masterminding the repairs and maintenance of for.great.justice. without josh's help replacing a failed stator which operates to recharge the vehicle's battery, recontrip 2007.01.[20070518.200706..] would not have been possible. the organization would also like to thank jennifer and james hunter for providing essential camping gear.

texas is the reason.

united states of america reinsertion on wednesday 05 april 2006! AAAAHHHHH! through the wonders of the international dateline time machine, my plane will depart auckland at 1915 on wednesday and arrive in san francisco the same day seven hours earlier! kung ->[POW!]<-

i'm going to be staying with my supercool friends ryan and michelle and their two supercool daughters in san francisco for a couple of weeks. during that time i'll be transferring my massachusetts drivers license to a california license, taking a 15 hour motorcycle safety course (which will allow me to get my california license motorcycle endorsement without taking a road test) and buying a motorcycle. the last leg of recontour 2005-2006 will be a united states of america cross country motorcycle extravaganza... first destination will be ligonier, pennsylvania, where i'll hang with my dad and stepmother and attend a friend's wedding on 29 april... second and final destination will be boston, massachusetts... i expect to get back to boston sometime in the middle of may. wow. WOW. ->[WOW]<-

i plan on writing up a summary entry as well as an entry reviewing all of the equipment i've been travelling with (what i brought that i never used, what i didn't bring that i could have used, etc.). i'm also planning to print some of my photos and maybe have a photo exhibition in boston sometime in june or july... if you have a favorite globalrecon photo, let me know!

wow. i'm coming home.

with a feeling that i couldn't stop if i wanted to


forgive me, reconites. as you may have noticed, i have been remiss in tending to my recon:one responsibilities as of late.

during the past month i travelled in the socialist republic of vietnam, over 2000 kilometers through a narrow north south country that had until then existed in my mind only as a blur of jungles and sadness on a screen, from hanoi to saigon; into the kingdom of cambodia through the killing fields of phnom penh to the crushing massive of the angkor temples near siem reap; back to the land of smiles, the kingdom of thailand, to bangkok. and all the while i filed not one report, wrote not one word while within, making only cursory notes to kick my memory for a day later. with apologies, that day must still remain later. and later i will try my best.

tomorrow i'll be departing on a five week long tour of the north and south islands of new zealand with a german named kai. unfortunately, part of the reason why the site has gone so long without an update is because i was travelling with someone else while i was in vietnam and cambodia... an energetic and adventurous 22 year old israeli with a mean scar named ori. i'm afraid it may be some time before i'm able to file another entry here; with a constant fellow traveller nearby it's sometimes difficult to find the discipline to become alone and write, but i'll do my best. as you may have read on the reconboard, kai and i recently purchased an above.level.devastating automobile, a 1992 nissan bluebird, which we'll use for the touring. if i don't have any new blog entries to post, i'll at least try to get some pics up using my cataract camera.

thanks for your understanding, reconites. six weeks until united states reentry. a part of me doesn't want it to end. another part of me is excited to get back. my insides are coming back home very full and very different with a feeling that i couldn't stop if i wanted to.

technology update

typically i would post this type of entry on the reconboard but there have been several updates with regard to technology, so i thought i'd post them here.

01. with regret i must report that most of the photos i took in mumbai, maharashtra, between 26 oct 2005 (the date of my arrival in india) and 01 nov 2005 may be lost. after my computer went into a coma on 26 oct 2005 i was forced to burn my photos onto cd's at a net cafe in vagator, goa. i burned two copies and confirmed that both could be read. i've tried reading those cd's at two subsequent net cafes; one cd is not recognized at all and most of the files on the other cd report an error message. unfortunately i was forced to delete most of those files from my compact flash card in order to make room for new photos. there is a small chance that i'll be able to retrieve the files from the cd's but most likely won't be able to do this until i've returned to the states.

02. i arrived in bangalore, karnataka, this morning after a 15 hour bus ride. i was able to purchase a usb card reader and i've just spent a few hours in a net cafe burning cd's of the latest pics. additionally i was able to resize 56 pictures taken between 01 nov 2005 and 08 nov 2005 in both mumbai and goa and have posted these pics in a new gallery.

general note about the pics: i reported this before, but i'm a little disappointed with my india pics. i'd feel a lot worse about losing the first week's pics if they were all amazing, but i really think about 95% were not up to standard. i do recall one specific keeper taken in mumbai that i regret losing, however. hopefully i'll be able to retrieve it from the cd at a later date.

03. the computer vendor received and revived my computer after transplanting the entire system board. thanks much to ivan and tim at portable one, inc. in california for the great service. now the problem at hand is shipping the computer back to me. i'm planning to make a reservation at a 'higher end' hotel in delhi and make sure that they'll be able to hold a package for me. on the upside, this will allow plenty of time for shipping (i won't arrive in delhi until 03 dec 2005), but on the downside this will mean i won't have my computer (and be able to easily process photos) for several weeks.

so... that's the latest. i'll admit it's been nice not having to worry about the computer lately, but the lack of a machine has really had a serious impact on my site updating capabilities (and the excess time spent in net cafes has been having a serious impact on my sanity as well).

for those in situation critical

my thoughts are with the victims of the katrina disaster in the southern united states. a friend sent me a link for a livejournal blog being published by someone currently in new orleans who is sharing firsthand experiences of the disaster: survival of new orleans. very moving. if you're getting your news from the television or the newspaper, this will give you an entirely new perspective on the situation.
