The Great Outdoors Recreation Pages offer vacation packages to "not
ordinary" locations. They also had a SWEEPSTAKES
to win a free trip to Amazonia Expeditions' TAHUAYO
LODGE in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle. The winner was my darling
wife. She received the e-mail telling her she had won, printed it
out, gave it to me and said "What's the catch?" I looked it over
and could not find one. And after the fact I have to say that there
was absolutely no catch -- the trip was completely paid for except for
the exit tax at Iquitos and Lima airports ($4 local, $25 international).
These people delivered exactly and completely what they promised.
"When should we go?"
"I can take off any time. How about over the Millenium?
Other than that I have no preference."
"That won't be open." But it never hurts to try, so Wendy calls
GORP and asks for the Millenium. The lady at GORP laughs and says
that won't be open, but I'll check. But it was open.
We left LAX 12:01 am on December 28th for our 7 day adventure to the Amazon
