    Hey guys!

    I just returned from a mountain bike vacation in the European Alps. I just wanted to drop by and see how things are going, before I leave for my next vacation to Italy in a couple of days. And I am sunburnt already! :)

    I hope you all are well and the UP are still alive and kicking.

    Take care, friends!

    Ahoy Cap'n!

    I lived in Naples for 3+ years when I was a lad (my father was military).

    Enjoy your next trip!

    I turned down my tour of duty in Naples to work on a different project in the Navy... so I haven't lived there! (but went to Japan instead, awwww, poor me!)

    I'm so jealous of the bike-vacations too. I went with a bike on my honeymoon with my wife a few years back, and then we haven't been able to spend too much quality time with our bikes. My mountain bike is getting awfully lonely.

    Nice to see the pirates are still alive and kicking too.

    WOW! Incredible views and the color in the video are breathtaking. (I did not know how to turn on the English subtitles.)

    You could make this into a worldwide documentary.
    Incredible job Pike!

    I hope this becomes a viral documentary.

    Hey, I hope we can chat again some day. I haven't been using ICQ for some months, I guess I have to reinstall that software...
    Take care old friend!
