I've known Mike Kobold for more than a decade and he still constantly surprises me. I've never met anyone who makes such outlandish, outrageous plans -- and then actually makes them happen. If anyone can pull off this ridiculous fire truck stunt, it's Mike. What's maybe most shocking to me, as a journalist, is that he also writes so well.
Kobold’s book is about his gratitude for the Sherpas, his friendship with the actor James Gandolfini, and about the fire truck expedition to Nepal. It is an inspiring tale of how a foreigner has learned the tricks of negotiating a complex society bereft of norms and ideals.

The fire truck expedition may sound like the ultimate road trip, but it's much more than that. It's a chance to make a difference for the people of Nepal.
