    I'll be offline for quite a while starting tomorrow, so someone else will have to take over this very intense game ;)

    Bah. Okay, was he a politician? Let's get it done before you go-go.

    The USA. I'm going hiking in canyons and other places.

    I'm afraid I don't have time to finish this tonight. My alarm clock will go off in a couple of hours and I need to get some sleep. See you in a few weeks!

    Sweet, have fun. My unsolicited advice for hiking canyons, which is very different than hiking hills or mountains: turn around well before you get tired.  If you are even a little tired before you begin the uphill return journey, you're cooked. This happened to me at the Grand Canyon.  When I started down, it was a majestic wonder of natural beauty. When I was about an hour from completing the ascent, it had become "this fucking hole" (as in, "I can't wait to get out of this fucking hole").  Still a memorable experience, glad I did it, can't wait to take my kids when they get older.  Is that one of the places you're visiting?

    ´
    I made it all the way down the Grand Canyon, stayed the night at the bottom and then hiked back up the next day. The main difficulty is the heat, really. You want to make it back up before noon or you'll fry.

    And since nobody has posted....

    4. No. Politically active, but known for something else.

    Ha! Tourist! Trust me, after a year in AZ heat, you get used to it :)

    Was the person known for dipping his pen in the company ink?

    I doubt I ever would.

    Is that a serious question? ;)

    The human being can't get used to everything except not eating... And no it wasn't a serious question, but I figured if I was going to temporarily derail the thread I could at least pretend to participate :)
