    Dirty Harry Motorcyle Adventure in Laos

    For serious adventure-seekers only. If you like adventures, AND you can ride a dirt bike/motorcycle, this might be for you.

    One of the adventure highlights of my travels was when I rode a 250cc Honda Baja motorcycle for seventeen days all over Laos. "Dirty Harry" was what I called my awesome machine as I raced through jungles, villages and streams in some of the most amazing scenery imaginable. My book includes several chapters recounting the crazy and intense stories of my adventures with Dirty Harry. It was truly an epic adventure!

    I will arrange a ten-day motorcycle trip in Laos with you. We will ride about six hours each day and explore jungles, dirt roads, villages, and makeshift bridges.

    This will not be a five-star, all-inclusive trip. You will meet me in Laos and I will handle the rest of the details (motorcycle, decent hotel, and simple meals, etc.).

    So come on, let's go have an adventure! We can work something out. And who knows, our adventure together just might appear in my future books or blog posts.

    And if you don't know how to ride a motorcycle but you know someone who does (and who loves a great adventure), this might be the ultimate gift.

    Plus I will send you ten copies of my hardcover book, five copies of my paperback, and two copies of my e-book.

    Just FYI... The best time to go is November to February during the dry season.

    Note: I want to share this Laos journey with a good-hearted, adventurous person. If I don't know you, we will have a conversation and start to map out our plans. If you are a psycho, weirdo, or difficult person, I reserve the right to refund your money in full ASAP and scrap the deal. So please, be cool. :) Thanks.

    USA Today Sponsorship Package

    I was very fortunate (lucky) to have been featured in a USA Today article in 2007 on the front page of their Money section. The article focused on how some real estate investors had cashed out before the big crash.

    My hard work and vision for my rental properties in downtown Phoenix, AZ helped me move closer to my dreams of traveling and seeing the world.

    I have already negotiated and paid for a deal with USA Today to reprint the entire article in my printed book, AND put the USA Today logo on the front cover of my printed books. It was a hefty expense (over $1,300 just for the logo rights), so your sponsorship and support will mean a lot to me.

    I will forever be grateful to you, and I will specifically acknowledge your support in the USA Today chapter of all of my books printed after January 2017. If you are the shy type or wish to remain anonymous, that is also an option. Of course, you will still receive my eternal gratitude.

    And I will send you ten copies of my hardcover book and five copies of my paperback, all with the USA Today logo on on the front cover. And I will send you a copy of my e-book.

    Note: The hardcovers will ship in December 2016, the paperbacks in April 2017, and the e-book in February 2017.

    Includes shipping to US and EU.

    Big Time Thanks!

    Includes:
    • My eternal gratitude and appreciation - Thanks!
    • Acknowledgement in the USA Today chapter of my future books.
