#33. The end of the SE Asia journey. I am back home again in Indiana….

Back in my arms again, my beloved dog Zambo on our farm

I am safely back in the United States, on my farm in Indiana.  One of the reasons I am posting this is because several people sent emails to me, worrying about me.  They had not read a new posting in a while, and they were worried that something had happened, like, as one person said, whether I was ‘in a Thai jail’.  Well, I am not.

I am on my farm, plowing and planting.  I have planted 20 hazelnut trees, onions, sunchokes, many greens, potatoes and other root crops.  It is still too early for the big three of corn, beans, and squash.  We did not get a killing frost this spring, so all the blossoms on my fruit trees will make it.  If you look in the background of this picture, you can see a pear and plum tree in full blossom.  My problem now is “Where are the bees?”  I see none on the trees.  I may have to start keeping bees again.

If you look in the background of this picture, you will see a black contraption to the right of me.  That is my almost complete solar food dryer.   I hope to be using it later this summer.

I will be traveling some more, this summer and winter.  If it warrants it, I may blog again.

Best to all of you.

  1. Dwight..sorry to bother you. Any idea where I can get the movie Escape? Either VHS or DVD will do..but I can not seem to find a place that has it. Haven’t seen the movie in over 20 years. Thanks, Steve

  2. Hi Dwight,
    Glad you made it in one piece. We’re currently in New Zealand on the Winter part of our trip. We’re travelling NZ in a campervan and it’s great. I’ve seen various pictures of NZ but nothing compares to actually being here (especially in Winter).
    I envy the farmer in you, when we move to France I’ll hopefully being doing some of the same.
    Good luck with your next adventure, I know there will be one, just a matter of time.
    Best wishes,
    The Brits down under.

  3. Hey Dwight how are you doing?? I was lucky enough to spend 2 nights in halong bay on a boat with you back in 2010 and can honestly say you left a impressional Mark on me .. absolout legend .. it was an absolute pleasure to of spent time in your company

      Hi Oli. I remember. How are you doing? What long trips have you been on recently?

      I recently returned from riding my bicycle across Myanmar and North Thailand. Just a pure joy. Who says I can’t do this stuff because I am 70+ years old? My health is holding up. I just lost 20 lbs on the last bike trip, which I needed to lose. Mind you, if I die on a long trip across some mountain range or whatnot, I will have died happy. We call it a ‘bucket list’ on this side of the pond, and I am going about crossing them off.
      I will have a new book coming out shortly, ALL OVER THE PLACE. A British film company has shown interest in producing it. So who knows? I may be in London again, as I was for the BANGED UP ABROAD production.
      wishing you the best, mate.
