Back in the USA

I'm back home safe and sound in my home in Wisconsin. So far I've been mildly productive working on the laundry and watching 4 hours of film so far. A lot of the video is at terrible angles or very shaky so it isn't the greatest but here and there there are sections that are  quite good. I think I have around seven hours total along with 150 pictures or so. Between all of the days in Skardu, Islamabad and then Dubai adjusting to the US hasn't been very hard at all. It's quite nice to be back. There are things that stand out. When people comment about the terrible roads here in Wisconsin, I'm in a little bit of disbelief because it is as smooth as glass compared to Pakistan. There are a few other things as well: never doubting if the food will make you sick, always having a seatbelt, have safe to drink running water, steak, and ice are a few that come to mind.

Here is a preview of things to come on this blog: (Masherbrum from Goro 2 on the trek into Broad Peak basecamp)
