    Curious that you had to work to enter the DPRK.
    Take care (many have not returned) and we’ll see you on the other side in a fortnight or so.
    The adventure really begins

      Hi Jack. Shannon here I work with Gareth at the Morgan Foundation. The blog you are reading is about 2 weeks behind as Gareth was in and out of communication in Russia we had a massive backlog of posts to help him get through whilst he was in Korea. We actually expect him and the team to come out of North Korea in the next 24 hours. Stay tuned.

        Hi Shannon, I’m a motorbike rider in the ROK. It would be great to meet Gareth and the crew. I’m on holidays so I’d love to meet up and even ride with them for a short stint if possible. I’m sure other riders would be interested too! Please let me know if we can organise something. Are they staying in Seoul tonight? And where are they heading to next?

          Details are up in the air at the moment and we have had bugger all communication with Gareth as you would expect. My understanding is he will be in Soul tonight Best bet to get in contact with him is to email him – I assume he will be straight onto his email when he gets into South Korea. Sorry I can not be more help.

            Ok thanks Shannon!

            I have e-mailed Gareth for his itinerary in Seoul, and will post details on the ROK riders blog when I have them.

        I appreciate the e-mail.
        You are right to think that I was confused over times and dates, and I don’t think I’m the only one. Regards
