    • Ha Ha… 🙂 We booked the trip through Golden Gobi Travel. They and their guide and their driver have a network of families they work with. The interesting thing is that some of this is up in the air. For example, one night the family we stayed with had already moved their ger for the season, and we ended up driving a few additional miles to find them in their winter location. The longstanding tradition in Mongolia among nomadic families is to open one’s door to travelers. It’s a big country and you never know when you might be the person in need of a meal, pasture for your horse, and a place to sleep.
