Great you will end up sounding like a bad Hollywood movie ... the ones where they always use a British actor to play an Aussie because of course no one could ever tell the difference.  :roll:


well then theres a lot of british actors in them aussie soaps that we get over here "mate" :D

mind you i dont think i could cope with watching them things to learn the lingo. one thought in that direction is enough to make me cringe!

OK, I'll post my 2,789th as well. Damn, I babble like a woman.
I might have to change my ID to reset my posts. Sage Collector sounds great, like I actually know what I'm talking about, but Long-Winded Collector reminds me of those people who continue on and on until you have to Steinbrenner them.

As evidenced by your desire to kill yourself in the sahara  :lol:

Here's an idea, Al!

   Instead of trying to kill yourself in the Sahara, you could combine your two interests.

   How about a long-distance run across the American countryside that is plotted between flea markets and known collector's troves?  You could make GenCon the final stop on the journey...and instead of water and food you could carry a huge pack to store RPG collectibles.

   You might even try to collect items that could be re-sold at the GenCon auction, and recoup some of your costs.

   Right...I know...but it sounds better to me than the Sahara.

ah but you see, the drawback is this:

the event is self-sufficient. so for the whole week, what you carry is all you have. imagine carrying all that booty you collect  :?

heh whatever will they try next :)

normal running shoes are crap in the sahara. you need off-road stuff otherwise they just get simply trashed with the harsh terrain.

i was going to buy an iPod last time around but was advised not to. they dont do that great in 40-50C weather and their battery time isnt long enough and to be totally anal about it, they are too big :)

i have one of them lil tiny sony jobs. i have about 115 songs on it and its one of them ion battery things that you charge up on your USB socket - the battery lasts about 40-50 hours so thats perfect and it really is small and fits pretty much wherever you want it to - i took it last time and it worked a treat for me.

so there you go :)

i have some great music on it too - one thing i learned last time as well, because the event is so hard (and it really is, make no question of it), i didnt zone-out enough into the music and get kinda into auto-mode. thats something i will certainly do more of this time - all with prep n stuff.

am actually feeling a lot more optimistic this time round.

of course anyone who has any cool songs/music to recommend for walking for like 6-8 hr stints and more, please lets hear your recommendations :D

Al

cmon guys you must have SOMETHING good you can add :D

Al

ps. there was one moment actually, which was hilarious. i did it hoping that someone would pick it up on camera but sadly they didnt.

on day 1 at the start, me n 2 mates deliberately started at the back wanting to be the last to cross the start line. as we did so, one of my all time fave songs came on my MP3 player, you know that "night boat to cairo" by Madness ? well for about 5 steps i did that funny madness walk that they had about 25 years ago. a lad next to me recognised it and laughed, but damn nobody took a pic. now THAT would have been priceless but it just wasnt to be. i still smirk about it now cos it was very funny. :D
