Mr_Fabulous: GoodOmens: [s9.postimage.org image 850x1133]
I went to Machu Picchu and did the Inka Trail - here I am along the way sitting on top of one of the many terraces of Wiñay Wayna. Incredible trip.

Tell me more, please. My wife and I both turn 50 next year... and while we're both avid power-walkers, I wouldn't call us super-fit hikers. Decent for our age, I guess. And we're not used to the altitude.

Would the Inca Trail be biting off more than we could chew? We both want to, but we have concerns. Tell me straight, yes or no?


If you're in any way fit you should be able to do it, I did it (with my own backpack) back when I had a twenty-a-day habit, and while it was challenging it was by no means a nightmare.

Day two is by far the worst. Try leave your heavy gear in your hotel in Cusco, or as another poster suggested, get a porter to carry it, and chew lots of coca leaf.

Very close - He was Stallone's trainer in Rocky as well as the Penguin.

Took the wife and kid to visit my folks in Pagosa Springs Colorado. Stopped and played disc golf every few hours on the way to and from. Ended up playing 9 courses on the trip, 7 of them for the first time. I think we are going to move to that area next year. Screw Worthllas (DFW). With moving out of state in mind I would like to do all the touristy stuff in Texas before I go. We went to Austin Texas over the weekend in an attempt to see the bats fly out from under congress bridge. They didn't come out. Did play 4 more disc golf courses though. I'm at a loss at what else I should try and see/do before we move.

It is visually nice. The seats are uncomfortable though. Wish they had another big screen too for the replays, since I was sitting in front of the one they have. :P Can't wait to go again.

It's all good now. The surgeon was kind of excited by the size and rarity of it being just a plain benign vascular tumor. Said it was the size of my eye, 14mmx22mm. He's prolly gonna get a decent ophthalmic paper out of it.

Gunny Highway: Jenthelibrarian: Some of you are very brave about going to bad fierce high mountains.

I am terrified of heights and had a horrid time going over one of the highest passes in the [UK] Lake District, at all of 1,500ft last week, still having bad dreams.

Yes, I am pathetic. And next year I'm going somewhere flat, like The Netherlands, or East Anglia.

It must be a librarian thing as I am also terrified of ledges/heights.

First trip to Mackinac in 8 years and it was a blast. Picture's a little shaky but still my favorite of the trip.

If it wasn't the dinner hour I would post a picture of my right ankle which is covered in over 50 mosquito bites that I got during last weekend's end-of-summer nighttime hike. I had forgotten how vicious those little buggers can be. Fortunately I already had my brush with West Nile during the first big outbreak in '99 or else I would have my death clock counting down.

+ 100 internets to anyone who knows where that is. hint - that rock on the left is unique and is a touristy landmark.

Santa Cruz, CA?

Bougainville, Quebec. I would have also accepted Percé or Gaspé, and if you had said 'Gaspésia' i would have given you extra special bonus hugs.

and the rock on the left is Percé Rock http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perc%C3%A9_Rock

Holy crap. We vacationed close to each other. We stay in Ste. Anne des Monts... made about halfway out to Gaspe this year on various day tours.


we've got family up there, and spent a month and a half between montreal and gaspe. such a fun drive from texas. and the drive from montreal to gaspe is amazing.
