I said, “You know it’s going to be us doing that Panerai replica watches samething where I write about us ing at each other, right?”He said, “That’s totally cool, man. No sweat.”It was funny with the Vogalonga story. At the outset, wewere legitimately anxious that we’d get along so well there wouldn’t be astory. But, uh, that ended up not being the case at all. We were at eachother’s throats in a genuine sort of way.The Vogalonga story (see Vogalooooonga from our April 2010 issue,) discusses an ongoing feud, sometimesphysical, between you and your brother Dan. If you were a WWE wrestler, whatwould be your nickname and why?Oh God. Um, I don’t know. Probably “theSweater”. It seems that when I travel with my brother, I’m the guy worryingabout the details while my brother is telling me to chill out and get over it.I think my super power would be logistic anxiety.What’s in your emergency travel kit?I don’t think I have one. I justgot back from Amsterdam last night. I had to go through the whole rigamarolewith the bag because I’d left a tube of toothpaste in there. I still haven’tgone to the trouble of getting travel-sized toiletry containers. I’m such adesperately disorganized traveler that there is no kit.
But let’s see...Usually, I like to bring a pair of replica watch gift tweezers and some dental floss. That mightbe it.In the July 2007 issue, you wrote about how to extract a tickfrom your genitals. Was this rooted in personal experience from your youth inNorth Carolina? Why is whiskey a better anti-adhesive than, say, tequila?It’s a drag when that happens. It’sunfortunately common in my neck of the woods in North Carolina.The whiskey is a southern thing.Generally, you have a bottle of Wild Turkey lying around. Giving the tick somereasonably good brown liquor before you set it on fire just seems like thedecent thing to do.
You biked along the Mississippi River levee in the March 2007 issue, tubedFlorida’s Wekiva River in the April 2009 issue, and kayaked Venice in thecurrent issue. Why water sports?I don’t know. The Mississippi thingwas a holdover from my time in Ulysse Nardin replica watches New Orleans. At the end of each workday, I’dtake my bike to the levee and ride for an hour or two just because it was acongenial thing to do. It was also the only way you could get a look at theMississippi. The river was all around you but you could never see beyond thelevee.You’re right. There has been a fairamount of water stuff. There was water action in Greenland too.
