We got up this morning, had breakfast, and went for a long walk... on top of the GREAT WALL OF CHINA!! Isn't that crazy? We're staying at a hostel in the Gubeiko Village (a very long 1.5 hour bus ride plus 45 minutes by taxi from Beijing). BUT the Wall is only about a 30 minute hike from here! And not the part known as the "Great Wall of Tourists" - this is the wild part of the wall. We walked along the wall for about three hours and only ran into one other couple. What an amazing experience!!

Now there 2 more "man made" landmarks on Earth that can be seen from space; your big ol' smiles as you walk along the Great Wall together!
Think Linda & I will go to Empire Express in your honor to celebrate tonight!
Stay safe, have fun & enjoy this part of your wonderful life together.
Love you!

Ah, how sweet Kirk. Sounds like you might be missing that girl. I know how you feel. I am so glad that they are doing this together. They are in another dimension, but they are experiencing it together.

Oh,oh. The bear trap just drove by. Some neighbor bear is about to have a new adventure of his own. :-) Happy Trails to all!
