Unfortunately my earlier prediction of wildfire spreading from the US west coast as far as inland as Montana is once again spot on.
Give the long amount of time I spent in the woods in these sections conducting my hobo experiments, I could have easily became one of the 33.
I had a hunch that this year was going to be weird when I landed on the wrong side of the Lotte building during the 2020 new years count down in Seoul only to manage at catching the last 5 seconds of the fireworks after making a dash for it.
Things really started getting weird when COVID broke out in Europe and it seem to be always just 1-2 days behind me as I traversed the cities of Eastern Europe. And that saga came to a climatic end when I scuttled my way back to Singapore just hours before borders shutdown around the world.
Also not to forget mention me cutting all my long positions in oil hours just a day before it experienced its largest crashed in 30 years.
This weirdness got compounded when I started making my way overland eastwards and entire sections of the route I took got shrouded in inferno just a few days after my departure.
I wonder when I do eventually make my way back eastwards end of this year would I past through on the way back be flooded shortly after my departure…
It does remind me of 2008 when I slowly made my way westwards overland from Asia to Europe. Shortly after my departure from Szechuan the earthquake, broke out. This was followed by the Tibetan riots shortly after my departure from the Tibetan highlands and finally the Uighur riots shortly after I crossed the border from XinJiang into Kazakstan.
