• Vincent collects his India visa 48 hours before departure. 
  • Bandh (Indian shutdown/lockdown/halt to everything type protest) planned in Guwahati for Thursday.  Mayank is forced to add countless miles to his already exhausting trip to the starting line.


  • Adventure gear arrives.  For better or worse the Mermen now have matching duffels, headlamps, sd cards, travel towels, boxers, toiletry bags, tooth brush cases, and wet wipes.  


  • Scott spends an hour printing and making copies of his passport, visa, hotel bookings, and flights.  Scott loses all documents in the subsequent hour. 

Stay tuned in. The real adventure starts in two days.
