Jenn, thanks for the link. Think I'll consider bringing a skirt or wrap now! Found this link to have some good info, including traditions to be conscious of: http://www.e-mongol.com/mongolia-advices-tips.htm

Have you seen those funnels that allow women to pee standing up? I'm bringing those with me.

Off the grid sounds good; what I'm prepared for!! Also agree that we won't be needing a lot of money, Gadventures recommended at least $75 to cover meals not provided by them and, of course, optional from there. Count down to departure! Just hope there are no delays out of San Francisco due to fog; the past few days have seen cancellations and 3 hour delays, but my departure date looks mostly promising. Only 1 hour 20 minute connection time in Seoul, so if I don't show up on time, you now know why...

See everyone in UB,
Denise

Still up and packing; no funnel though! Darn, out of time to get one, too ;-( Leaving for the airport in under 12 hours.

See everyone soon,
Denise
