We worked out that its been 13 years (less a few weeks) since I last played MVB. Hopefully it won't take another 13 to actually beat him!

Time for a rebuild!

Back home now, and the luggage appears to have all arrived safely. Over the next week or so I'll be working on editing the 4K recordings and getting those uploaded to the main TrekCC youtube account.

I will say this - I'm getting a more direct route for trips now and try to cut down on overnights in airports.

Simple solution: work nights for decades and your pineal gland will be so shriveled and lifeless that you’ll never experience jet lag again.

@sexecutioner We took your recommendation and had the deep fried Mars bar while in Edinburgh. It was delicious.

This weekend at home was a street festival in our neighborhood. Saw this. Even better.

Just jump the border to Canada. Cheaper and quicker :D
Maybe just double-check it's the same Mars - sometimes the US and Canadian versions use the same name but are very different (e.g. Smarties)
