Brenda Valentine’s Outdoor Legends Tour: Day 4

Lt. Col. (ret) Lew Deal couldn’t wait to don his Mossy Oak Turkey THUG cap in Kyrgyzstan, a Turkic state.

We left Germany today, which meant my last German dining experience. Kangaroo meat was on the buffet, along with a few other critters I can’t pronounce.

Of course I tried them! Not bad at all.

After another all-night flight with a stop in Istanbul, we arrived in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan where the Manas Military Base is located and our luggage awaited us.

Apparently, my luggage went on a different tour than I did…

Lt. Col. (ret) Lew Deal couldn’t wait to don his Mossy Oak Turkey THUG cap. I, on the other hand, couldn’t wait to find an English-speaking person so I could report my missing luggage.

Folks kept telling me not to worry, it was JUST luggage. I have a theory about missing luggage and toothaches. Both are whole lot more serious when they are yours.
