10. " 3 things I hate most in the world, kudzu, skeeters, and kudzu"

quote from a "Big 'Ol Boy" from the south on some network comedy/news/human interest show in the 80's I'll guess. I've used it many times with my own substitutions

15. One thing people tend to ignore about kudzu

is that the root is an edible and reasonably nutritious foodstuff. We might just get desperate enough to start eating it in the not too distant future as warming continues and kudzu is the only crop that won't fail.

Nothing but harvesting every year will kill that stuff.

24. Didn't I read somewhere that someone is making biofuel from kudzu, I think on this board?

25. It's not a useless plant.

We've just had more economical and tastier sources for what it offers. That might be ending.

12. I want to go there....

I have an acquaintence whose wife went on one of those adult adventure travels there...she was quite ecstatic in telling me about it. He wasn't up to the trip. I've been looking into a few 50+ trips/treks

13. If that 50+ means in years, let me know if you find something.

Although I could never swing Peru time-wise or money-wise. Well, until I win the lottery.

17. Okay I do get some mailings from colleges...

and that is a big option for cheap travel, foreign studies programs intersessions. I've done it many times, of course you become more of a chaperon but thats okay its fun.

This is just an example. Adults can audit the class.

18. Sounds like a good idea, and wonderful too.

But it is out of my price range just the same. Does not include travel to Peru, travel insurance, lunch and dinner, and tips....and that is not a small amount. But what fun it would be! I will consider this one day in the future as a good option for travel programs. I would have never thought of this.

26. If not now - when?

I hope you consider it seriously. I was there when I was not quite 30 - a good while ago - and it is one of the highlights of my life.
I went up by switchback roads on the bus, and it scared me so bad I walked down through the jungle.
The Urumbamba river flows there, and the train ride to Cusco is spectacular as well.
GO!

14. I was lucky enough to go there. I put it up there with the grand canyon

in the category of places that can not be over-hyped. No matter how cool someone tells you it is when you get there you mind will be blown.

I was there in the summer of '09. It was an amazing day I will cherish forever.

20. I got to go there in 1977

Had a great time, there are hot springs down along the river. Ate strawberries from the terraces, and there are fields or orchads up on top, we walked the trail for 5 days coming in the second time.

23. Fans of Google Earth have been scouring the globe for lost civilizations...

This illustrates how hidden such things can be.

27. That's amazing

Reminds me a book I got from my father which contains most of Rome's ruins. They are shown as now and then a transparent overlay for each page shows each of them as built in ancient times.
