View of Leadership

Leng is a great trail/travel guide. He really know how to care for those who trust him to lead into the jungle on his motorcycle adventure tours.

Leading is often a risky business. Going first into the unknown, and even the known can provide their hazards. Leng and I have crossed this bridge many times. This time he went first. The right side support collapsed due to jungle rot causing Leng and his bike to fall 12 feet down amongst the broken logs and supports.

Gratefully no injuries to bike nor man were sustained. We did spend the next two hours lifting his bike out, and cutting a trail around to get passed the now defuct bridge. WITH A POCKET KNIFE. Being well prepared, that lesson is for another entry.
