      Getting from Chiang Rai to Laos. Although the boat ride is often referred to as the ‘slow boat from Chiang Rai to Luang Prabang’ the boat does not depart from Chiang Rai, Thailand; the Mekong River slow boats to Luang Prabang leave from Huay Xai, a border town in Laos that is 65 miles east of Chiang Rai. SLOW BOAT TO THE BAHAMAS is a funny look at getting the sailing bug, preparing for, and going on the big trip with a four year old and a four pound dog."If you've ever wanted to cruise the Bahamas by boat or just in your mind, SLOW BOAT TO THE BAHAMAS offers a humorous ride.”—W Followers: K.

    Book Review: One Second After by William R. Forstchen The story centers around the main character, John Matherson’s, experience during the attack. Quicker than a lightening strike, John’s phone call is cut short by the explosion of a nuclear war head over central United States.   One Second After. Genre: Doomsday/Thriller Author: William R. Forstchen This is one of my favorite books of all-time. I read the One Second After trilogy back in the fall and it completely changed my life’s perspective. Not only did it inspire me to start emergency prepping (which has obviously come in handy) but it also sparked a new interest in EMP technology.
