    1,2,3,4,5

    March 28 in Saudi Arabia

    After successful meetings in Riyadh I have arrived in Jeddah with the luxury of flying. It was much better than the 10 hour drive. I was greated by my long time driver and friend Ibrahim. I met him 5.5 years ago on my first trip and he has been with me almost in its entirety on my other travels here. His mother made us a wonderful home cooked lunch and in the evening I took them out to eat at a nice Turkish restaurant.
    The day wasn't all relaxing and eating though. We did get through inventory and began to pick up supplies.

    For those movie buffs or perhaps heggli/taylor nerds, I came across a situation that made my day. I was sitting with ibrahim and his brother, Ahmed, attempting to access their wifi. I asked them for the password. Before they replied i said "let me guess, it's 1,2,3,4,5". They looked at me shocked and laughed. They said "How did you know". I couldn't believe it. All I could think of is "that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. The kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage". It dawned on me, they had never seen Spaceballs and then it sunk in, they actually used 1,2 3,4,5 as a password without seeing spaceballs. I there fore had to show them the scene and we all had a good laugh

    Inventory and ready to hit the road

    February 20, 2016 in Saudi Arabia

    Today we were able to go through all the equipment that has been sitting in jeddah for a year. Good news it is all there. Let's hope it all works. I put a couple pictures of our team and loading up. One cool thing about today is that I saw the future tallest building in the world under construction. It will be one km tall when complete. Tomorrow we head east over the mountains to Taif

    Quiet Dreams Apartment- Jeddah

    February 19, 2016 in Saudi Arabia

    Made it to my hotel after 26 hours of travel. Highlights of the day was some good food and a beer at 6am in Frankfurt followed by a nice sight of snow falling as we boarded the plane.
    My hotel is decent but i am in for some trouble because of the store located next door ;)

    Jeddah

    March 22, 2015 in Saudi Arabia

    After a 700km drive we made it to Jeddah. Our driver invited us to stay at his house and his mom made us a great home cooked meal. We followed this up with a evening of hookah on the red sea
