really neat. If you have ever watched "The Deadliest Catch" on the
Discovery channel it's much like that.
They show you grid points on where the truckers are, how many loads
they've made, how much money they're making and of course on-board cameras.
These guys are some brave souls! It's incredible listening to the ice
crack as they drive these trucks, some weighing as much as 60,000 pounds
across these lakes!
Check it out if you can.
almost felt like a letdown, but it was a good read. I don't want to
ruin it for anyone interested in reading it, but I'll just say it's
about an American expat who goes to Vietnam in search of some MIA's.
The neat thing about the book is that it takes place in modern day
Vietnam and many of the scenes the author describes reminds of the week
or so that I spent there.
Honestly, given the chance, Chris and I both would like to go there : )
