Less than three weeks until my first official M13 Adventure Tour takes place. I’m getting nervous.
At first I only had one guy coming. Which isn’t that bad….takes some of the stress off of me. Then we had another guy book. Then recently one of the guys canceled…..so putting us back down to only one. And then in the last month we had two new people confirm. And two more who say they are coming, but haven’t confirmed yet. So that’s a total of 3 to 5 people who are coming at present. Svengalie is still one of the possibles.
I originally expected the tours to sell out and adjust the budget for 10 people. But with fewer we’ll need to cut some costs. But I don’t think it will affect the fun factor. As we will still be riding and exploring Asia. I’ll put up some videos and update the tour website once the tour is done.
For now I’ll be doing one tour per year. And the next one will be in August of 2011. I chose August because for the last month the weather here has been amazing…..so hopefully it will be the same next year. The price will also be raising as I’ll probably be breaking even at best this year. But that’s ok as this is a bit of a trial run for the tour company. So next year expect the price to be around 1300usd. And if you do the slightest amount of research you’ll find this is still very cheap. As a motorcycle tour in many countries can’t be found for cheaper than 2 or 3 grand. So even with the cost of the plane ticket it’s still cheaper than doing a tour in your own country (for many people) .
My school is suffering at the moment. My boss’s wife left him, and rumors and gossip are plentiful as to why. And the parents have started pulling their kids from all his schools. I’d say we have less than 30% of the students we had just a few months ago. But less hours is both a blessing and a curse as I’m sure you can see. With the Tour only a couple of weeks away….it feels more like a blessing at the moment.
My favourite game is still Bad Company 2, and other than that I’m pretty busy with YouTube.
Sorry again for the late update. I’ll try to be quicker with my next one….sigh.
