As the google latitude shows that Morgan Parker had finally reached Jakarta. But I have left some message on the fb to greet and meet him. So if W2W read this message, I would like to request for short interview. Thanks Morgan, have nice riding in Java.
For those who had not yet informed about what W2W is all about, please visit the homepage at http://www.wheel2wheel.tv/home.php.
The initial Wheel2Wheel adventure set off on 1 March 2011 and sees Morgan Parker travel over 20,000km through 10 countries between Hong Kong and Brisbane. In each of the 10 territories Wheel2Wheel is highlighting one small charity or non-profit organisation that istackling one of that country’s critical issues, doing it superbly but not yet receiving the systemic attention of the region’s philanthropic community. So when the wheels of our modern day adventurer roll on, sustainable broad-based support can begin to roll in.
Of course apart from seeing the awesome charity work being done throughout, our intrepid explorer is also witnessing some of the world’s most extraordinary natural landscapes. The journey takes in operatic mountains, geological wonders, ancient human creations, serpent rivers, stunning beaches, pre-historic rainforests, a long red desert, and numerous urban metropolises. What gives life to these varied environs are the people that inhabit them. Wheel2Wheel’s contemporary exploration is a study of the human condition in every sense.
Let’s not forget all this adventuring is being done in the saddle of a BMW F800GS motorbike over more than 100 consecutive days. So the Wheel2Wheel journey is also an endurance battle for the mind and body. The tension of man and machine against many miles of mother nature is sure to provide moments of struggle and contemplation. Mechanical and human fragility will be tested as the days turn to weeks and weeks to months.
