Misadventures in Southeast Asia with Ken Hudson

Ken was an experienced outdoorsman and had traveled more than many…until that day his wife shoved a National Geographic in front of him with a photo of a one-legged landmine victim in Cambodia and said “Let’s go!” Although he was apprehensive and three of the four countries involved had hostile relations with the U.S. in 1991, he decided to give it a go. Things started going wrong before they even left on their trip…something that proved to be a bit of an omen. It all turned out for the best and was a crazy first adventure to a truly exotic part of the world…cementing a lifetime desire to travel and see what others have not. Some stories are much funnier AFTER they occured!
