Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Oh Kickstarter nation, you are the best. You, friends, family, and good people everywhere I can't tell you how important your support is and what a difference it makes. I salute you. I celebrate you. And most of all, I thank you.
We leave for Bhutan next week, the itinerary thick and notebooks at the ready.
I will carry with me all of your good thoughts and will keep you posted as I draft the book.
This book is for you.
