In Vietnam. Traded the Dual Sports for ...

This quote from Dumb and Dumber sums it up. (Substitute "dual sport" for "van".)

Harry: Where did you find that?

Lloyd: Some kid back in town, traded the van for it, straight up. I can get 70 miles to the gallon on this hog.

Harry: You know, Lloyd, just when I think that you can't get any dumber, you go and do something like this...AND TOTALLY REDEEM YOURSELF!

Our mopeds, parked off of highway 1A, just outside of Ho Chi Minh City.

We're now at Mui Ne beach in Vietnam. Here are few pictures from today.

Kite surfers. (Those things that look like bats flying on the horizon are more kite surfers.) Danny and I did some wind surfing today. The combination of 3-5ft waves and strong winds made it a bit challenging, but very fun.

The man in the pictures below is paddeling out to his fishing boat, in a half sphere that is like a giant wicker basket.

The couple below is preparing to launch a similar vessel.

Danny, right before he got hit by a moped (at a very slow speed). His responce: "They should have honked." A newly minted expert in SE Asia driving rules.

Fishing boats moored on a river in Phan Thiet.


  1. Love the picks! I can totally imagine Danny complaining that the motoped driver should have honked. Those images of the fishing boats are amazing.

    Enjoy the vitamin D!

  2. Will you boys bring me back one of those wicker basket boat things? It looks like the perfect place to sit with a book and a beer on Lake Washington. I bet I could singlehandedly cause a backup on the 520 bridge with one of those. Or just start an awesome new trend. Pretty soon they'll be all over the lake :)
