Default He's Back . . .

I am happy to report that myself, my wife and of course, the Big Ass Buck had a wonderful time on our trip to The Maldives and Sri Lanka. During his time with us Buck communed with the Buddha, tried some traditional Sri Lankan cuisine (Chicken Cheese Kottu pictured in photo), spent some time on the beach, and in perhaps a first for any T206, went on a scuba dive in a makeshift "wet suit". I can't say that it was the most secure apparatus ever constructed, but after a few hours in the Maldivian sun he was as good as new. Sadly, now that our journey has come to an end it is time for him to move on . . . so shoot me an email (joshmargolin@gmail.com) if you want him and I'm sure we can work out a trade!

- Josh

Ok....

So, this may just be the greatest thread I've ever read...

Yes - that may be correct.

It makes me so happy that I'm not even necessarily able to laugh.



Well done gentleman....well done. That scuba diving pic is Grade-A meat.


I know there is a waiting list, but I'm probably going to be in Jamaica or the Bahamas for my honeymoon in November..................

Nice photos!

I am having a hard time not feeling a little bummed that LAH has travelled more in a few months than I have travelled in all my years.

Trade on!

I see from the thread that there are several in the passive trade partner line.

But don't worry if you have to hold on to him for a bit while waiting for the offers to arrive. They'll come in eventually.

Who can resist the opportunity to be a part of an international phenomenon like this? Years from now, we fortunate few will look back on year one of LAH's travels and say, "My name is in the first log book." and tears will well up in our eyes and in the eyes of those who hear us. And then one of the less fortunate will say, "I took my turn recently, it was an indescribable experience. But, man, shipping is outrageous these days!"

Thanks Greg...for express mailing Large Ass to me...he'll be available for future adventures mid september. I was dissappointed he was unable to come with me to Ecuador last spring...he missed out on swimming with sea lions and chewing on coca leaves while climbing volcanoes...But it appears he had a butt load of fun in the indian ocean! Hopefully he'll enjoy this trip as well...we'll be heading to Turkey for 15 days on thursday...pics to follow!

Thanks again Greg!

Take him to the red light district and try to make more Bucky's.

Don't forget to stop by for a smoke and some fine art.

No prob, Pete. After a bit in Amsterdam, Buck is going to say "the heck with the layover, let's just stay here!!! "

Large Ass and I returned home to Saint Paul, MN this past saturday night. We're a little jet lagged...but had an incredible trip to Turkey. We had a connecting flight in Amsterdam so had the treat of an afternoon in one of my favorite cities...and apparently Buck's too!!!

We started the day with a live sex show...Buck had never seen one before...I think he liked it!
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...s/36a71137.jpg

I then told Buck about the red light district...and he was intrigued...he wanted to stop for a few provisions first!
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...s/e134e4d3.jpg

We cruised the red light district...but none of the ladies piqued Buck's interest...so we had a cup of coffee!
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i1...s/88caf21e.jpg

I think Buck liked Amsterdam...I know I did...Turkey in time!

If you send me large ass I could take a pic of him in front of NC's state capitol in Raleigh as I'm about 15 mins from there. I could also take a pic in front of the dean dome (UNC) and Cameron indoor (piss on Duke). I enjoy seeing the travels. Does he need a passport to travel overseas or do customs just feel bad for him and let him through security?
