"It was a boring morning as I rolled along Highway 1 in Vietnam. I’m getting fewer Hellos in South Vietnam than I did in the North. I headed on towards My Lai. I decided to take a back road to cut off some distance. It was a great decision—beautiful landscape, quiet roadand quaint villages.
But then the road turned to mud. I slopped through it; I rode where I could, and pushed where I couldn’t. It was really tough going, and I almost fell sideways a couple of times from exhaustion. And my shoes fell into big mud pits a couple of times giving me soppy mud-water socks.
But hey, if you don’t love it, why do it?" -Eoin
