At the end of the trip, we were all specially thankful to God Almighty for enabling us to undertake this memorable adventure and to be able to share the tale! But there are a host of people I would like to specially thank for assisting in the endeavour....see list below which probably misses out some key people, but thankful to all who contributed indirectly directly or remotely in this and all other endeavours of 2010:
Gulzada Khan: For being the key driving force of Project Reconnect and our guide and companion through most of the journey.
Dr. Ehsan Kiani: For all the hardwork on Project Reconnect and Project Baltoro....
Asad Marwat: For all the motivation, inspiration and work on Project Reconnect...
The Awan Brothers: The tech team behind the creation and the continuing madness of Project Baltoro which enables us to take the toughest of challenges with confidence.
Saquib Janjua: For the original inspiration for Project Reconnect i.e. to build bridges.....and for the rear disc brake conversion of Baltoro (a true lifesaver!).....not to mention for the wonderful stickers (even the inversed one :))
All IJC members and contributers: Too many names to mention here but Aamir Bhai, nn, Parapilot and all others who have strongly supported and participated in Project Reconnect! May the good work continue into 2011 and beyond! IJC Forever!
and last but not least Bugzy: For pressure roasting Baltoro's engine a few months ago so we could enjoy a fully refurbished one during the trip! Surely did wonders to the low end torque!
