4th edition of "The Practical Nomad" available for pre-ordering
I'm delighted to announce that the newly revised and updated 4th edition of "The Practical Nomad: How to Travel Around the World" is now available for pre-ordering. You can order it now through your local independent bookstore or online from Powells.com or any of the other usual suspects, and you'll get your copy at the start of October.
Thanks to all the people who helped with the new edition, especially everyone at my publisher Avalon Travel Publishing and their distributor Publishers Group West / Perseus Books Group who are still working to get the books printed and into your hands, months after I finished my part of the job. Happy travels to all!

Thought you might like to know about a conversation I had yesterday on the telephone with a lady at the American Citizen Services Unit of the U.S. embassy here in Bangkok.
After reading your piece regarding additional documentation required from U.S. citizens, or the possibility of such, I called, as I may need to return to the U.S. with little notice due to family health matters.
The lady with whom I spoke told me she hadn't heard of any such requirement, and that as far as she knows, any American citizen (which I am) can return to the U.S. with just a passport.
In any case, she added there is no form she can give me for now, but to call again before heading out to the airport in case such a requirement is put in place.
She added as a sort of editorial comment that she sure hopes the information turns out to be incorrect.
This is NOT a criticism of you, but merely sharing what information I was able to garner.
