Jacque The Explorer

I’ve mentioned before things I want to do.  Not to beat a dead-horse but I do try to accomplish them.  Sometimes they go awry though.  Like when I get lost.  Or maybe there’s a mechanical failure and it seems I don’t have the correct equipment.
This <i>kinda</i> looks like Jacque. (if you tilt your head and squint. while punching yourself in the head)

Now, thanks to one of my favorite relatives (actually *all* my relatives are my favs.  They are positively THE BEST.) I live the dream.

Isaac is a Cartographer.   He either makes cartoons or draws maps I’m not really sure, but either way I’m a winner.

So here’s the text of an e-mail I sent to him in reply to a comment he made to me about getting lost while trying to find a bike trail.

Dear “relative whom is a cartographer/geographer by trade”,  It’s always nice to correspond with you and hear how your travels and travails are being espoused.  It is with great anticipation that I plan my trip to the far reaches of the New World they call New Zealand.  I worry that they may have man-eating women there or even worse, only Coors Light {shudder!}.  I am inquiring if at all possible if I may impose upon your skills.  You see, I have a habit of losing my way.  After recently trying to find a trail in my own back-country, getting lost and being forced to eat a non-organic granola bar.  I was wondering if you could find it in your heart to use your prodigious skills to map me a bicycle route to New Zealand.

In using these series of tubes called “the internet” I discovered that a cartographer/geographer by trade makes maps, cartoons or possibly clothing optional home movies.  I most assuredly do not need the former.  The second is a distinct possibility but the first is what I so desire.

Dearest Relative, my skills at composing this letter using old-time wording is waning and is becoming tiresome.  If at all possible please assist me with your skills with finding this exotic locale.  If that is not of your pleasure maybe you can use geographer skills to help me identify the rocks found in my panniers.

Fare Thee Weell,

Your relative in the Far, Far West

Jacque (Jack)

So, we’ll see what come of this.

Till later,

Jacque – Out

    That letter is awesome. If he can map a bike route to New Zealand, I will ride it. I love maps, too. I would like to see what he comes up with to help you find your way around. Hey, don’t you have that GPS thing? Does it work or did it not find its way into your bag?
