Going to Bhutan is incredibly expensive (the visa expense was USD$170/day/person x 4 persons x 30 days- you do the math). There is no way I could have done it without a major TV show paying all the bills. Definately the chance of a lifetime.

Re: Into The Thunder Dragon movie finally released!
There are lots of Buddhist temples there and lots of monkeys, but I doubt
any of A are run by B. "You should totally go to Bhutan, dude" sounds pretty
silly too. The price Kris quotes for our trip was discounted due to the fact
we were staying over 21 days. If you have fewer than 4 in your group and you
go for less than 21 days, it's USD$240/person/day.
I used to really like the Onion, but it's ... a little lame these days don't
you think? What else could you call this vacation tip: "When visiting the
Grand Canyon, try to suppress your overpowering urge to throw yourself and
your family over the railing." That's not funny in the least or am I just
having a lack-of-humor day? Maybe I'm just pissed off that my buddies
Bronson and Scot are leaving for Tasmania and Bruce is leaving for Brazil
and I have to stay here and work!
If you actually pull off a trip to Bhutan though, you'll love it and
remember it all your life. I am working on a way to get back there in the
next couple of years with my family (of course with unicycles).

Nevertheless, I still consider it to be well worth the weekly visit. I laugh out loud at least a few times at each reading.
