No was there too late in the summer. I did almost get stuck up there.  We lost track of time, by the time we decided to head down it was already sunset. Had to take the "Marathon" trail back down in order to make it back before it got too dark.

I'd rather not get into details but my story is out there and now B'H over.

And then you joined DDF in November of that year. Yay!

BTW, I don't mean to make light of your situation but since you seem to be laid back about it (perhaps because of internet anonymity) I want to ask a question. Why do all ex-cons say the exact dates of their arrest and sentencing when they tell their stories? You never hear anybody say, "On Dec 12, 1992 I was accepted early admissions to Stanford. On May 5, 1997, I graduated with a BA in Art History."

Isnt it called "doing time"??? Thats all we have to measure out "time". I didnt say that i entered law school on August 31, 1999 and passed the Bar on May 13, 2003 either. But jail time is "timed".

And I am cool about it and i dont really care about anonymity because if you know my real name...and it aint too hard to figure it out...my story can be Googled.

Day 1 i was harassed for not being a Jew and only Jew"ish". On a scale of 1-10 that was a 5.
Somewhere in my last week i tried to share the 3 kosher chicken wings we got for dinner with one of my 60 dorm-mates. He really didnt appreciate that i didnt ask him and just put it on his plate. THAT was scary. That was a 9.
The fight in front of my bed where the guy had his nose broken and the lockdown middle of the night search were pretty scary too.

Just a few interesting ones off the top of my head:

Bohol Island, Philippines
Nauto, a village deep in the Peruvian amazon.
Shibu Onsen, Japan
Poon Hill, Penang, Malaysia
A soviet prison (I was born there during the soviet era).
A Ukrainian operating table.
Secret military base in Transnistria.
Quba, Azerbaijan (According to wiki, it's the largest Jewish city outside of Israel).
A military compound in Egypt
Volcán Concepción & Volcán Maderas - Ometepe, Nicaragua
Bob Marleys House/Grave - Jamaica
Rybnitza (Ribnitz) - Transnistria
Swam in a Meromictic lake (GIYF) in Malayisa

Should I keep going?

I have obviously been to 100's of villages, towns & cities that i'm confident no one has been to...

Maybe the question was not clear enough. But to explain my answer, I feel that people think of travel as an expensive & unsustainable hobby. For me travel is life, exploring the world and its intricate secrets is what gives me pleasure. Others seem to work for 40 years so they can retire in a big house, and perhaps see a new country every year if they are lucky. I'd rather see the world now and be more experiential for 40 years & then spend my last years being with my family, playing with my grandchildren every day....
