Oh, that's ok! You San Diego folks have ocean on one side and desert on the other. It's easy to get everything else confused. And that just leaves you with the rest of us.

China sounds pretty good though. And it sounds like David kicked some serious something there.

Hi Doug

Thanks for asking, I did post some stuff, but in the escapes section. There are two stories there:

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......8&27

I will post an account of my underwater escape later today, and follow that up with some sideshow stuff, plus a bit about the country. I have so many stories from that trip its unreal. Some of it you wouldn't believe. We are going back (myself & Nikki) in October, possibly August as well, so perhaps the book will have to wait until then.

Thanks Harley Smile Are you still planning a trip over here?

Cheers

David

That was amazing...so well written too! Edge of the seat thrills and chills! You have to write that book! (I'll be long gone in the ground before Ken Dean writes his...so put a hustle on it!)
Thanks and more please!

I'll never confuse you with that funny Harley guy again....Smile

Oh Doug, you can confuse us. We're both complimented, I think.

I hope I get there some day. I rarely go anywhere these days, without an agent arranging it. I hear rumors regularly, but I believe the contracts.

Aw c'mon! It's just a bone! If I say grace frist, does that mean I'm coming in on a wing and a prayer?

But the confusion and contusion place sounds mighty familiar. I think it's in the asteroid belts. And my wife isn't the only one who tells me that.

Johnny Fox, Tyler Fyre, and I were hired last year, to perform at a snowboarding tournament in New Hampshire. It was about 15 degrees (F), snowing, with about a 30 mile an hour wind. We had a blast, up on top of the quarter pipe, blowing fireballs as big as we could, bedcause there was nothing flammible around, just snow.

When we were almost done for the day, Tyler comes up, and had taped some cardboard to one edge of his bed of nails, and announced that he was going sledding in the quarter pipe. So off comes his shirt, and I give him a push, and it was one of the most beautiful rides I've ever seen...smooth all the way down, up the pipe, and sliding back.

When Tyler got back up the hill, he was blue, had a huge grin, eyes glazed with rapture, and he muttered "Wanna try it?"

Of course, "no" was not an acceptable answer, so off comes my shirt, I lie down, they give me a push, and down I go. Except that I hit every bump that existed on the slope, and wiped out.

As I walked back up the slope, I was mobbed by people who had to look at my back. Every nail in that bed, left a cut. And when I wiped out, you could see the pattern change. The slices got longer, and curved viciously off to one side.

One of the snowboarders had the proper first-aid solution, some vodka, so we wiped my back off with that (didn't drink any, we were working). I think that hurt worse, at least until the next day.

Would I do it again? Absolutely. I don't have a picture of it.

I hope you make it over sometime. I'll make sure to buy you a drink or two.

Sledding on a bed of nails LOL!

I think I am the one getting complimented Harley Smile

I'm amazed.

I vaguely remember the person who took it. I wish I had one of my back. It was something else.

Thanks for looking!
