It's ... okay

Another in the Khao Yai jungle trek series. This one starring your fearless ("He'll eat anything!") cartoonist.

"Pretty tame"

Another personal comic from the trek in Thailand's Khao Yai National Park, a few hours from Bangkok. Arranged the trek through a small company called Khao Yai and Beyond. As in the "jungle blend" comic below, I have made up the entire text, not least because Lam the park ranger (in camouflage, carrying the shotgun) does not speak much, if any, English. This comic also stars an old friend, who like me, was making his jungle trekking debut.

Jungle Blend


Click comic to ENLARGE.

A personal comic.

Made this after a three-day trek in Thailand's Khao Yai National Park, a few hours from Bangkok. Arranged the trek through a small company called Khao Yai and Beyond, which works with experienced park rangers such as Lam, pictured in this comic.

I have made up the entire text, not least because Lam does not speak much, if any, English (one of the owners of Khao Yai and Beyond, Deaw, trekked with us, so there was no communication problem).

It was a great trek, and highly recommended as an easy-to-access jungle adventure. In three days we did not see another human being (though we saw plenty of evidence of poachers), and did not hear a human made sound except the engines of high-flying airliners.

Once you've had jungle coffee, you won't want Starbucks again ...

Small Government, Lots of Guns


Click comic to ENLARGE.

According to House Speaker John Boehner, "smaller government is what America wants."

Well, he and his G.O.P. colleagues have certainly given America smaller government. And because Somalia, the previous "small government" champion, installed a federal government in August of last year, the United States has just become the world's least governed place.

At least we've still got a "well-regulated militia".

Oh.

A well-armed militia, anyway.
