  • part of the trip so far

  • okay i'll go first um you know what

  • there was no one particular moment that i found impressive i would say it was

  • the journey it was the adventure that we had along the way much like the wizard

  • of oz chris let this be a lesson to you it's not about the end result even the

  • wizard of oz had a relatively satisfying conclusion this whole trip was

  • predicated on you getting a mug that doesn't exist

  • yes that's true but imagine all the other treasures that we acquired along

  • the way so um you've had some time to consider it what was your favorite part

  • for me it would have to be the icbm the intercontinental buddha missile um a

  • butter in a missile silo you know what i do feel like we're at the edge of the

  • world right now right i mean cape sawyer i guess it is the edge of the world
