I hiked Gross Morne. Was a five day hike - we carried 40 lbs. packs and I was on the island for 2 weeks. Your out  :)

I took the ferry, drove to gros morne, drove back to ferry. took 1 day. you win :)
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

On May 21, 2013 i was remanded to the custody of the NYC DOC and taken to Otis Bantum Correctional Center on Rikers Island awaiting sentencing on 2 Felony and 2 misdemeanor charges for financial impropriety.  On June 24, 2013 I was sentenced to time served plus 5 years probation. I'd rather not get into details but my story is out there and now B'H over.

So has anyone else been there? Or am I the winner of this Forum game.

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.

You just gave me a whole new appreciation for the mitzvah of Sefiras HaOmer. Seriously. Shekoyach.

Cool were back to Gros Morn again. When did you go btw-which month? What's the weather like there in June/July.

You definitely seem to be the winner (or whatever you want to call it, not sure winner is the best term in this case  ;)).

You're welcome. Counting days...and i still have the calendar with th "X" marks, is a process. It initially seemed so long, then it was June, then it was 10 days left. So you appreciate each day.

Trust me, I'd rather not be. But if ever there was a place to reset your life and give you perspective, thats it. You guys worry about KSML i ate Labriute meals twice a day for a month. Imagine eating airline meals for lunch and dinner every day for a month with no choices and sometimes the same dish 3 days in a row.

But seriously, I might be the only one that made it to:

Belfast, Ireland

I was in Belfast for a FIFA World Cup qualification match in 2013 :)

Your biggest problem was the airline meals? Rikers is a rough place! I'd be more concerned with physical violence, no?
