THIS MIGHT BE OF INTEREST?


This morning, before I got up, my wife Gina was poking around on the internet, she wanted to see my blog so she googled my name, what she got was Amazon.com where they're promoting a book I'm in and the promotion is my piece! If you're curious click here

It's all true and it's also, along with some other tales at my blog. I've been intending to add some pictures of the event at the blog but so far RROS has monopolised my time.

Woah, that is some story! When was that? Have you been back since?
The scariest thing that happened to me lately was when driving in the middle of nowhere in the Brazilian far west at night, and out tyre exploded, causing a big bang and then a big rattling (the tyre had also bent the car). Luckily my friend controlled the sliding car and we were fine. Had there been a curve ahead though it would've been a different story. The thing is the whole while, Rick James' Superfreak was playing , which will knock the drama out of anything.
A couple of days later, we found out that this freshly installed tyre was actually 11 years old.
P.S. I like the subtitle of your story.

By the way the story starts on page 35, for those interested

Very harrowing story, goneforeign, and very very well told. Thanks for posting this. My scariest travel story, since we're posting, was getting tear-gassed in a small town in Venezuela. Nothing on your story, I know, but humbling and terrifying none-the-less.

Blimey, and I thought your scorpions tale was scary enough.

I hesitate to mention the time I was staying in a very isolated beach house in Trinidad. Everyone was out except me, and I turned around in the lounge to see a very large well built black guy standing there, wearing nothing but a pair of shorts and a scowl - and holding a big cutlass (machete). But it turned out he was 'jus' passin' an wan know if you wan some coconut, boss'. Heart flutter subsides, dry mouth moistens...
