Fixed, solo adventure.

This is the perfect time too as I don't have a real job right now to speak of. The last couple months I've been playing priest, performing wedding ceremonies for rich people. I've done 5 weddings so far and at 500 bucks a wedding it's a pretty good gig for about 20 minutes of work.

That's pretty cool, Boycake! Try to post up pics as you go.

You starting or ending in Beijing?
I'm thinking it would be cool to start in Beijing, and end it up in Hainan...

What are you running for gear?
Or are you going to be crashing in rooms?

Starting in Beijing. I thought it would be pretty cool to come from the smog of the north east into the fresh air of the south west.

Gonna hotel hop it for the most part but I'll crash anywhere I can. The Chinese are probably the most hospitable people in the whole world so it shouldn't be too hard.
Can anyone recommend some road tripping tracks for my playlist?

Awesome trip, have a great time.


The Rural Alberta Advantage. Just saw them last night in concert. Absolutely awesome show. The unique precussion is great back ground for a long bike/car ride.

YouTube Video


YouTube Video


Their cover of the littlest Hobo theme song seems oddly appropriate for said trip.

Nah,

I'm bringing a notebook and a voice recorder though. If it's interesting enough I'll just try to write a proper book like they did in the good ol' days.

yeah dude true story,

Last wedding I did had over 2000 guests. Stadium atmosphere, lots of lights and visual effects and shit. The bride came floating down from the rafters on a cloud held up with wires while fireworks went off. She was wearing angel wings and a full choir plus orchestra was playing heavenly music during her descent.

I didn't know if I was at a wedding or a pop concert.

Remember I'm in China. 500 bucks is more like 3 grand here. Also I was only there for two hours and in the spotlight for less than 20 minutes. When was the last time you made 500 bucks that easily?
