In 2006, I helped transport seven tigers from the U.S. to the Samutprakarn
Wildlife Park in Thailand. This is the first group of the four different colored
tigers anywhere in Asia. It was a very long, circuitous route to get
We drove from Myrtle Beach to Atlanta, flew from Atlanta to Anchorage,
Alaska, to Seoul, Korea to Singapore to Bangkok. It took nearly three
days of travel to finally arrive at our destination.

The cargo plane was pretty empty going to Asia, but is full coming back.
Apparently we import more than we export.
I got to sit in the cockpit of the 747 during take-off and landing. That was REALLY cool.
