Gullible's Complete Travels
In the summer of 1993 Paul, Nate and Laura went to England. We'd like to say that after three weeks we returned to the United States with a better understanding of English life and culture. Unfortunately we were young and stupid so all we came back with was stories about hanging around the place we stayed watching "Telly". Also we went to see Jurrasic Park... great flick!
Nate kept a journal of his travels in Great Britain... Paul and Laura kept similar books but filled them with silly drawings. Presented here for the first time is Chef "Nate" Elf's English Travel Journals.... enjoy.
[The words in red are the words of Present Day Nate. You don't think that's too vain do you?]
An Open Apology to Laura
Hey kid. In reading this for the first time you may be shocked by what you read. You were younger than us so we made you do the dishes. You worshiped us so we made you clean up after us. You were smaller than us so we cheated you out of money. Hopefully it's just all water under the bridge, right kiddo? The thing is when we got back to America, you were 7 and we were 15 and 17. You got a book published shortly after and we sent our manuscripts to publishers hearing nothing for years (although I think Kopper Bear Press is still considering Storm Over the Empire). And here we are eight years later and we're sitting here uploading things onto a website that you started. You won. We lost. Hope there's no hard feelings.
