Looks like I’m going to get out going to the Marshall Islands this summer, but that’s not a done deal yet so I could still end up there.

The most unusual place I’ve ever been is Svalbard, Norway.

I’d like to go to Egypt, but have no plans to as long as that region of the world is in the shitter so I probably won’t make it before I die

My favorite place on the planet is Bald River Falls in the Cherokee National Forest. We plan on spending our next holiday in that area doing some riding if the weather is nice Memorial Day weekend.

Half-wracked prejudice and lies that life is black and white, my dear Charles.

But I was so much older then, you know...

Racine, Wisconsin (USA). Lived there for 30 years, then moved to Madison, WI and have lived here for 32 years, except for a brief interlude in Colorado.

Quote:2. Where in the world have you been?

Various places in the US (mostly National Parks -- Badlands, Rocky Mountain, Grand Canyon), one trip to Canada (rock climbing at the Niagara Escarpment near Guelph, Ontario -- with a side trip to Niagara Falls), four business trips to Europe (Munich area three times, London once), a two-week bicycle tour around Colorado.

Quote:3. What has been your favourite place to visit or regularly go to?

So far, my favorite place is the Rocky Mountain National Park area in Colorado. I love mountains and canyons. I took numerous vacations in that area, and even moved there for a while back in 1991.

Quote:4. Where haven't you been that you'd like to go to?

All of the other mountainous National Parks in the US; the Alps and Pyrenees in Europe (preferably with my bicycle); the island of Islay in Scotland (source of some of the world's best whisky, and I also love the idea of rocky stormy seashores, even though I've never been to one).

Quote:5. Where is your next holiday set up for?

Nothing planned. I'm old and broke, and my traveling days are probably over. But if that changes, one of the places in #4.
