A radical tangent... not really related to your post at all...

Firsts! That's impressive, first guy to land on a ship. Impressive AND important and absolutely noteworthy.

That will never happen to me, I don't think... I doubt I've ever been the 'first' at anything. But I have often wondered....

(Here comes the wild ass tangent)

Have I ever made a footprint on this earth on a patch of land where no other human in the history of man has set foot? As much wilderness travel as I've done my first thought to that quandary was, "I almost had too".... but then on second thought... I dunno. These days it's hard to find a patch of ground even in very remote area where there isn't a discarded gum wrapper near by, or an aluminum can.

What about you Iowa? Think you've ever once in your life made a footprint where no man had ever set foot before?

  Hey Iowa! Ever hear of the Aviator, Eugene Ely??
