Okay guys we have a frightening story here as a young California couple has gone missing while on a biking trip in Peru. Jamie Neal and her boyfriend Garrett Hand, both 25, left for the trip back in November, however according to friends and family they haven’t been heard from since January 25, 2013.
Two young bike enthusiasts from California have disappeared while on a biking “trip of a lifetime” through South America, according to friends and the U.S. State Department.
Jamie Neal and her boyfriend, Garrett Hand, both 25, embarked on their journey at the end of November, or early December, according to Neal’s boss, Jeff Jerge. Neal works at the Pedaler, Jerge’s El Sobrante, Calif., bike shop.
“I’m beyond worried,” Jerge told ABCNews.com. “I’m super concerned.”
Jerge said that Neal and Hand had known each other for a while and began dating and planning their South American trip last summer.
“It’s kind of like it was a dream trip for them,” Jerge’s wife, Kim Jerge, told ABCNews.com. “It’s their first big adventure.”
Neal has worked at the bike shop for more than two years. Hand is a fisherman in Alaska.
“They wanted to originally ride from here to South America, and we thought going through Mexico was particularly dangerous, so we talked to them about skipping that, and they did decide to fly down to South America and start their trip there,” Jeff Jerge said. “At the point they wanted to leave, we all felt it was potentially dangerous.” Source.
Let’s all send these kids our hopes and prayers for a safe return!
Steven Tyler is admitting to a monster cocaine addiction, $5 million worth… TMZ.
Tyler said he “snorted half of Peru” over the years fronting Aerosmith — easily spending at least $5 million on cocaine before he finally kicked the habit, or so he claims.
Then again, he has been reported to have undergone private cocaine rehabilitation, so he really must have successfully kicked his cocaine habit after all.
Pajamas – is this the new trend when going out on errands?? Or….are people just lazy?
Charlie Sheen —-what are you doing? I guess you want to be really low maintenance with shaving your head, then not even caring to get dressed when going out of the house!
Do people just not care how they look? Are they just lacking in time to change into some jeans or sweat pants? Can’t you put on some tennis shoes and get rid of your fluffy slippers?
I guess people just don’t care! True, some schools have certain days of the year they can wear their “jammies” to make it fun. I’m sure many college students are doing it because they truly don’t have time to change in time to get to their classes. Some universities have prohibited business & marketing students to wear pajamas to class.
Yes, some people still go out with their hair in rollers too! I used to think that was crazy to do that! Personally, I would never be caught out in pajamas or slippers!
Will we be seeing people going out in their underwear next? Seriously, people can do what they want, and they will….so I’m sure they don’t really care what others think. To each their own I guess.
Maybe they are on their way over to Hef’s!!
