wanderernomad : Yes the trip is fully on but i am very busy with the last minute preparations. I do not want to suddenly realize i forgot something when i am mid-way. Lot of changes happening to the car as well, which should finalize today. You will get regular updates on the website (i should have been doing that regularly but hard being a one man team).

The only condition of the stay would be, i will pay for my stay but ask your friend to adopt one poor patient who needs help. I will be more than happy to find him one in desperate need.

............. though i will not be able to post many comments once on the journey, but will make sure i update my website as much as i can. Thank you all once again!!
Inder,

Great start for a great cause.

Will talk to my friend, and OK for the night stay. Will talk to him about adopting a patient. Will also talk to some FM friends about the coverage.

Godspeed & Safe Journey.

Congratulations! I read about your trip in a newspaper here, but didn't know that you were on TBHP. Wish you continued success in both your journey and your cause. God bless!!

Naturalist: I am posting as many pictures as possible as internet seems to be a problem in some places. I am sharing some of my experiences and have just posted latest updates today. Please feel free to pass your thoughts.

The earlier date of entry in India was 26th October (today). I went to check this up on the website but now the date has been revised to 4th Nov.

Here's wishing a successful end to this charity adventure.

Yes the date ad to be revised as both China and Pakistan mutually decided to close the border for 5 days. Reason there was a heavy snow storm and after that there was a festive season. I had been on time by the second until i entered China, the last leg of my journey.

Anyways i am looking forward to entering Pakistan on the 31st and Wagha on the 4th Nov.

Whoa, that is scary. Glad to know that you are alright. Am hoping it was a random, robbery type thing and not a targeted attempt. Not that either way is better but less chance of a follow up attempt with the former.

Anyway, look forward to the photos. That really is inspirational for how far you can actually travel and do things with determination. Good luck with the rest of the drive, though you are definitely in the home straight now.

I'm sure there will be someone from the forum there at the border to welcome this "Braveheart". Please post pictures.
