Good news!
You do indeed know the reference! The Fly is what I was talking about. Great minds think alike! :)

I don't know about the Brundlefly reference but the lost nail reminds me of this one movie The Fly that Jeff Goldbloom was in. I watched it when I was really little, but I remembered that his nails came off when he was trying into the fly and the whole sticking to walls and the girl pregant with his mutant child. Clearly it made an impression on me. Five passes Seven days... that does sound like an impressive tramping adventure. And I'm glad to see that your new best friends the Sand files did not miss the whole experience.

serviving Ivory Lake Tramp
Nick I can't believe the difficulty all of you endured during that lake tramp. It scared me greatly reading about it . I'm greatful its over and every one made it through with their life. I am also greatful I didn't know about it until after it was over. Please all of you take care. We are ever so proud of all of you and what you have accomplished during your adventures. A little less life threatening adventures sure would lessen my anxiety level abit. We are anxious to hear from you and Andrew again. always- Mom

The top of One's Lungs
65 miles of walking will cause even the coolest of cucumbers to need a shower. Was the water black as it swirled down the drain? I love the pictures, and your appraisal of the scene at the only bar in town during a rugby match. Hope you could get your points of conversation across to the inebriated locals. I've noticed before that you tend to get straight to the point when you shout loudly, so I'm sure the human contact of the bar was not only welcome, but engaging as well. Tramp ON

Well... more tree-like? Similar to oat meal, but the spelling is different.

cool pictures.
Yes Grimance, heartburn, and hiccups--best hike EVER!!!! It sounds rough-- but you have survived--and to tell the truth I would have stayed at the hut for days... make a mini stay-cation there so you are stronger person than me. I can't wait to read about the next adventure. Take care of those legs. D

kick the shit out of the pig
Now in long car rides you can say 'lets kick the elk.' I must say the elk, the car, and more important the three of you were very lucky in your brief incounter. I'm glad the flight went fast.
