    This is an attempt to promote a new book by an old college room mate. His name is Jim Malusa and his book is called Into Thick Air: Biking to the Belly Button of 6 Continents and it is a hoot. Jim is not your average long-distance cyclist or botanist. He rode to the lowest point on 6 continents and has some great tales to tell. It is very entertaining; he has a wonderful sense of humor. It is a kick. It is easily available from Amazon as well as bookstores. He is doing a promo tour around the country (currently east coast) and has been featured on NPR; Discovery Channel sponsored him for some of the travels. So, if you'd like to read a good one, dial it up! (It is cheap too!) So even YOU can afford it DerStuka! :wink:
    Thanks for letting me chat it up!

    He started out full roadie and then put some 'cross-like wheels on to handle the terrible "roads" he had to traverse in many countries. I haven't finished the book yet so I don't know if he switched over to a Mountain bike later in the trips. This guy is fearless.

    It is less than $15 at Amazon. It has some good reviews so far. His site is intothickair.com
