    This reminds me of a software story i heard once, which i was assured was 100% true!! The software person had been working at a small start -up, but things weren't going very well, and he had decided to look for a job. He went out on a couple of job interviews, and on one of them, the interviewer remarked that "What we REALLY need is a 'Parsnip' programmer". [I can't recall the exact language that was mentioned, but it was something i had never heard of before or since. I had to look it up to make sure it WAS a programming language.] The candidate, thinking fast, came back with: "Why, i've been programming in Parsnip for over 2 years"! The interviewer, surprised, asked: "FINE!! Can you start Monday [3 days later]. The candidate said... "Errr, well i guess so...er, yeah!!" The programmer candidate stopped by a bookstore, and found two books on Parsnip. He bought them, and spent the weekend reading them. On Monday, he reported to his new job, and found that there was an all day meeting scheduled on the new Parsnip project. He sat there until the lunch break, totally lost, and wondering what language was being spoken. After lunch, they re-convened the meeting, and someone said: "Well, in Parsnip, you have to........ ". The candidate/fresh hire suddenly realised that this was in conflict with something he had read in those two books. He said, "Oh??? I thought it was xxxxxxyyyyy"!! A stunned silence followed, then several people said: "That's RIGHT!!!" Suddenly, the fresh hire WAS a Parsnip expert!! He said he read everything he could find on Parsnip for 2 years, and then he WAS an acknowledged Parsnip expert!! So don't think that just because you haven't heard of something before, that you cannot become an expert!! Cheers.

        Ever watch the "Globetrekker" series on telly? Gals are more popular on that for obvious reasons [who wants to look at a guy???]. I don't know how you get started, obviously you have to be photogenic, and open to travel/new experiences. Those most likely include sleeping in a cold tent in the rain, in a soaked sleeping bag. I've done that already, but i'm a guy, so i don't make the cut on the photogenic part. Able to hike up steep hillsides in the rain and snow also a requirement, and not put off by spiders, snakes, things that go bump in the night...etc. Good luck!!
