Welcome to the Home Page of the GlobeRiders IndoChina Adventure 2014 Live!Journal!
The 2014 IndoChina Adventure is our 3rd iteration of this journey through IndoChina. The Ride will take the group some 3,700 miles (6,000 kilometers) over 37 days, our tour participants will start in southern Vietnam and cross in to Laos in the north of Vietnam. Much of the journey in Laos will follow the Mekong river crossing the border to Cambodia and continuing to one of the highlights on this journey, Angkor Wat.
As is true for all GlobeRiders tours, our client/riders' bikes were shipped from our facility in Seattle, Washington, USA, by ocean freight, allowing each rider to pilot her or his personally-outfitted motorcycle for the duration of the tour.

We wish our bikes a safe journey to Vietnam.
This IndoChina Live!Journal consists of three chapters:
- A new Chapter page will be added to this website as soon as we get enough material from the riders. Each Chapter will consist of stories and photos from the road, submitted by participants en route, a sort of travel blog (or travelog) if you will. Chapter Navigation Menus at the top and bottom of each page allow you to quickly jump from one page of the Live!Journal to another.
- When each new Chapter is "published" to the website, we'll send an email newsletter Dispatch, informing subscribers to our newsletters that new content is available in the Live!Journal. Each Dispatch will contain a photo and short summary of the week, and clickable links that will take viewers directly to the relevant Chapters or other pages on our website.
Our Live!Journal gives those of you who couldn't join us this year, to include family and friends of the participants, the opportunity to take a "virtual" tour with us. It also captures and preserves the tour for our participants, creating a scrapbook of their adventure on the web that they can refer to for years to come. And of course, we hope that a select few of you may be inspired to join GlobeRiders on a future adventure.
The "map", seen below, will show where the group is and where they have been. You can click on the markers to get the location and time stamp. Normally the location updates are a live feed from our DeLorme inReach SE Satellite GPS Messenger.
In the Chapter navigation Menus, Chapter links which are blue are clickable, those in gray color are yet to come.
As always, should you have any questions, comments, requests, or simply want to say "hi" to any of us, all you need to do is click here to send us email.
Come ride the World with Us!
