All planning and no wheeling makes Jack a dull boy

It certainly has been some time hasn’t it?

Last time we spoke, we had left your two intrepid explorers at the Incheon airport, in Korea, boarding separate flights into the unknown. Well, dear reader, much has happened since then. The unknown has blended with the known, and most importantly, AsiaWheeling has reconvened and is preparing for re-entry.

AsiaWheeling Scans the Horizon

Yes, much has occurred.

The planning began not so much less than a year ago now, with my visit to Scott in Tokyo and the resurrection of the AsiaWheeling Location Breakdown and Analysis division. We established a number of useful metrics to plan the trip, for instance the AsiaWheeling Time-to-Visit Index. For the AWTVI, data for each region being considered was piped into an algorithm which assigned each a numeric value indicating it’s fit to a set of criteria, including: temperature, precipitation, and sunshine for a given month. An example of the output is shown below.

In addition, we have established budgeting tools to calculate our expenditure in each country, sustained an intensive cross-training and developed the AsiaWheeling Danger-Voltage Blacklist, which contains a constantly updated list of locations which we at this point deem un-wheelable due to war, natural disaster, or risk of exposure to explosive or poisonous material.

AsiaWheeling is Hard Core

While not hard at work planning the trip, Scott and I have found the time to do a little America Wheeling, which culminated in a road trip from Iowa to California, through the southwestern United States. The southwest is of particular interest to AsiaWheeling not only because it offers some of the best wheeling in America, but because an opened bag of potato crisps has been known to last for months without going stale.

Now we toil comfortably in our luxurious offices, compliments of the fine folks deClarity, continuing to research locations for the itinerary and battling the logistical jungles and bureaucratic swamps of international tour planning.

    Thanks, Hud and Henkes.

    It is our humble duty and great pleasure.
