TREY be coming home at last. I know you've all been awaiting this event with near overwhelming anticipation! Well... you need not wait much more. I'll be home on Tuesday. Some of you I'll wanna see the moment I get back, but lets be honest, some of you it'll be better to see a bit later... like on FRIDAY!

My quest is complete!!

I was up in the mountains of northern Thailand playing a relaxing game of paddle ball when I saw an amazing red thai fly fluttering about in the sky. This fly was truly amazing, far larger and more beautiful than any other i've seen during my voyage. Recently I've been practicing my ability to connect with others through my meditation practice... a skill I learned during my retreat. As I saw this fly scurrying about in the air I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to test these abilities...

After just a few minutes I felt the energy of the fly filling my body, feeling its movements as though they were mine. Without thinking I relaxed my hands to my sides and upon opening my eyes I found the fly resting on my palm!!

I believe this is a true signal that my quest here in SE Asia is coming to a close! I'm now planning my return back to America and getting really excited to show off my new skills to all of my friends....

With love,

Speak of the Devil

You are never going to guess who I ran into!!!

After mentioning the boy in my last post, it must
have been fate that I would run into him. As Miles left
last week, I have been traveling alone which is alright
but it was starting to get to my head. The idea that all
of my friends are now in Boulder rather than Thailand
makes this side of the world feel empty. God must
have noticed and blessed me with the presence
of my great friend, Teague.

Anyways, so I had heard of this amazing party town called Vang Vienne which lies on a river and and attracts us white boys with free alcohol, massive rope swings and a never ending lazy river!!! No joke, these rope swings HUGE. As you all know, I consider myself to be a pretty big bad azz but these swings freaked me out... and that's say'n somthing.

So, with nothing else to do I decided to go to this town and who do I meet on the bus? Teague himself!! Can't tell you how excited I was

Partying hard with Teague and some temporary friends

this place is super beautiful naturally, but I think the rope swings add a nice touch

Me flyin high! See what I mean though... super scary

Cancun has nothing on this place. White boys heaven:
GIRLS, rope swings, free alcohol, water and sun

Another view. Competing rope swing venues drive down the price of free alcohol!
hahaha. Clothes do tend to come off here :)

oh yeah, late night mud pit wrestling where things get a little 'dirty'
Teauge was headed up in to the mountains to
conquer his life long goal of completing a retreat
to the end so we parted ways

All in all, Vang Vienne was AWESOME. Teauge definitely lifted my
spirits and I think I can finishing my journey over the next 2
weeks traveling alone. Super excited to be heading back to
the USA though!! Get ready boyz,
TREY's comin BACK

Retreats give the spinzzzz

Hello friends and family!!

sooo... I bailed on the Buddhist retreat after only a couple of days. I know, I know... you're all thinking I'm a big wuss BUT I will remind you that our good friend Teague also bailed on his yoga retreat prematurely so I'm not the only one!

My reason for 'retreating' from the retreat so quickly is that I became conscious of a chronic dizzy spell overwhelming my system, almost like I had the spinzzz from a hard night of partying, but all day long. You can imagine how discomforting this may be so give me a break. Now, if you recall Teague also complained of this symptom from his retreat... leading me to believe that this is a symptom of retreating and is unavoidable for white westerners such as myself! It's kinda weird, the more I think about it the more I realize I have in common with Teague. Anyways, just my mind wondering

As I've been writing this post I remembered an old skool pic of a night that Teague had legitimate spinzzzz... enjoy!!!

Budda retreat!

Hi all,

I have departed from my loves Calum and miles to go on a multi-week Buddhist retreat up in the hills of Thailand. I'm feeling really stoked on it because we had an amazing yoga session today that has really put me in the right frame of mind. All three of us were just out of this world...

on another note, since John's left to do his own thing in life I feel like I can show you an example of how weird he can be. Guess he figured she wouldn't mind...
kinda miss the guy though, nobody on earth like him

Miles and I have been gettin' jiggy recently juicin' PRETTY hard!
(Calum don drink juice... it's too weird for him).

Miles recently purchased this sweet 'Dry Tube', which has been keeping our goods dry
The destitute gathering muck. I gave them some of our jelly
Miles picked up a pair of death metal sandals seen here
This is what we do roughly 95% of the time. Some might think we're wasting a good trip not seeing the country... but come-on we're living like rich american kings!
Calum recovering from his happy ending massage.
(He really didn't want Christine to find out, but i just don't feel comfortable misrepresenting reality on this blog)
We're on our way to play some tennis
Where they process the muck into... ?
It actually snowed a lil' bit!
It rained for a week straight. We were trapped inside our cozy bungalow, one thing led to the next, and with cabin fever running high some crazy things went down between us boys!
This guy is playing cards. Obviously
Just another dirty river
Preparing to brave the street
Miles' hair is getting a bit dready.

The sun sets here

As you would probably guess, Miles and I travel on a budget and kind of rough it. I don't know where to start describing Calum's equivalent ideals... this picture should do it justice enough.

Background story: We decided to rent bikes for a fun day of site seeing. Calum quickly realized that it only cost $3 more to rent this guy for basically a whole day. He'll never change!

Ma Boy Calum be joined us

So Calum has finally joined the group in South East Asia, and man, if we thought it sucked to have John here, it REALLY sucks having Calum here! I mean sure its good for all of us to take a step outside our comfort zone now and again, but this guy's box is just way way too small, and for him, becoming a traveler in SE Asia is like becoming a damn astronaut. He's constantly complaining about everything, how weird the food is, how he can't eat it in the dirty restaurant, how he can't sleep cause all dem bugs, blah blah, and on and on. I mean he even complains about crossing the street!

On another note, Miles and I can now read each-other's minds. Yeah, seriously. The other day I was thinking about how I'll have the same phone number when I get home, and Miles was like, "yeah, it WILL be nice keeping the same phone number when you get home. Needless to say Miles and I reached a new stage in our relationship... lets just say things are getting SERIOUS.
