    Just so you know, I'll be on my own and looking for a TAR partner this time around. I'm real good at reading a map and very seldom get lost. Mr. gracie thinks the salmon fishing in Michigan would be more fun than going to Vegas. Sometimes I wonder about him...

    Yo Unk, I never realized you guys played a TAR game last year. How could I miss that detail (or forget it)?

    Is there a thread somewhere that I missed? If not then please do tell: where'd you guys run around in Chicago? Who were the teams? Who won?

    I could never do a foot race either, but it has nothing to do with my feet. It's 'cause I have breathing problems.

    (I also have problems walking and chewing gum, but that's a whole other story.)

    Well gracie, maybe they will pick the teams when we get there. I'll be heading out there alone, too, unless I can talk old speedbump into carpooling with me on a roa trip from Boston!!!

    We didn't do a mini-Tar, but we did venture downtown, via 3 different modes of transportation, and Phat managed to keep us from getting hopelessly lost. If we had, we'd all likely still been wandering around downtown asking "where is the nearest blue line stop?"

    We didn't. But often, getting from place to place was so dramatic that we joked about The Amazing Race. And some of those jokes turned into "What if's" for Fortcon II.

    UnkleScott, you don't want to be on a team with a guy who breathes hard after running 20 yards.

    I may train Rocky-style, though, if we're really going to do mini-TAR.

    Kind of like this, eh John?

    "I think the blue line is that way."

    Yes, but my favorite was Phat asking a couple on the street where the trolley strop was, and the guy says "I'm sorry, I'm from Britain." Phat looks back at us and yells "It's okay, everyone, I speak British!!"

    Hell yeah...Team Hopalong! Nevermind that I'm so lazy that the last time I went to Vegas I think I discovered every free shuttle, moving sidewalk, train, monorail and escalator in town while I was obsessively trying to hit every casino on the Strip and Downtown
