Well - - -I'm been a member for less than 30 minutes and already I am enjoying the view. About Buenos Aires - - I've been there 3 times; Twice on my way to Ushuaia in the Tierra Del Fuego, first in 1995 on my way to run the first marathon to be run in Antactica ---(I came in 9th out of 114 starters but I was only 67 at the time). Then to run the marathon in B.A. and then again because Tom Gilligan of Marathon Tours and Travel (out of Boston) laughed at me when I told him that I planned on running on all the continents so I could be in the Guinness Book of Records. "Ya - - You and a dozen others"
Well - - that did it! 4 years later I ran Antactca the 2nd time and by then I had run at least twice on all the other continents. So- - I got into that wonderful record book.
Talking about books: I wrote a memoir called, "Old at Forty, Young at Sixty" by W. Bill Galbrecht (www.booksurge.com www.amazon.com)

All the insiders jumped the boat because they knew that Mesa was going to lock horns with the Island Carriors in Hawaii, but the ordinary stockholders were not told! Later Mike
