We're going to be famous. Well, maybe not famous but well known. Well, probably not even that but our names will be in print and maybe a cheesy picture to boot. We were called by a journalist from the local paper and he offered to do an article about our walk for next week's edition. (I told you we lived on a small island...our paper comes out only once a week.) We promise not to let our egos get inflated. Even though we're going to be famous.
All joking aside, I am very pleased. It will give us an opportunity to publicly thank the corporations and individuals who were generous and supportive to our adventure. Their contributions have been amazing.
For a mere $500, I'll send you a genuine autographed edition. But wait! There's more! Order now and you'll also receive an autographed picture of my hiking boots absolutely free. An offer like this won't last. Order yours today!
