After a year + of not being so happy with my username, I've made the change. Thanks to Sam I Am for pointing out this fact. I was once again overlooking the obvious. So a big shout of thanks to Sam!
So from Outcast to TLWH. Erm, okay it's not so good. But it was a last minute thing. TLWH are the initials for my website The Longest Way Home, so I get a plug there too.
By the way, the URL to my blog should also hopefully be changing to www.tlwh.travellerspoint.com too!
To anyone not liking TLWH, then just call me Dave

Welcome to Travellerspoint TLWH!
welcome, I had a look at your website after I read your post last night, and you have been to some amazing places. I am hoping to do nepal - india - pakistan - iran in a couple of years (money permitting) so may have to pick your brains nearer the time! Did you go to Moenjodaro? That's one of my main reasons for wanting to go to Pakistan as it looks amazing.
Never got to Moenjodaro. I entered Pakistan during emergency rule via the Iranian border at Taftan. Then on the way to Quetta had a little mishap on a bus, and arrived into Quetta during a riot. I wanted to head straight north, but there was a curfew on so I had to go south through the Bolan pass to Multan and then up to Lahore onwards to Peshawar.
So I must have passed my Moenjodaro when the train stopped on the Indus River. To be honest it wasn't on my itinerary, as I was trying to make the Khyber Pass before it closed. I made it two days before they closed it off. So was lucky in that sense.
Pakistan was fantastic. Especially Peshawar, the place was a buzz with atmosphere.
Easter Iran was for sure great. India was better than I expected. And Nepal was a personal favorite.
I wrote up a lot of how to articles on the site, but feel free to pick at what's left of my brains at anytime!
Great thank you
All sounds fantastic - will definitely be back in touch once the planning gets underway!
