Conquering Machu Picchu
"A life-long dream came true this morning, as I stood upon the mountain looking down at Machu Picchu. I felt like some strange mix between Indiana Jones and a small boy, gazing down upon the final treasure of the Incas."

"We drove along Route 6, Route 66 and Route 666. If there was a Route 6666, we must have missed that turn."
