    wow i just read the greatest expedition thread i have ever seen! i read almost half then went to bed and couldnt sleep so i got up and finished it. it was a long read but well worth it in my opinion.

    im not sure on the rules of crossing forums or if this may be a repost but jeeze i just think it was so amazing! and if its a problem it can be moved or whatever

    anyways i think many of you will really love it so enjoy

    Reading it now. Wow, that's fucking nutty. Specially the parts about cannibalism.

    Good thing they're rocking a diesel. Never would have made it with a gasser. :p

    It'd be kinda boring.

    I've now killed two days at work reading this thing. I'm on page 50 (they just made it to Kikwit).

    I've been a lot of places (including the DRC), but this is incredible. I especially loved his protection as "a sense of humor and a smile. And failing that, a pair of quick legs!"
