JA and Richard - we had to read Kon Tiki in high school. Required reading list! But get this.....voluntary attendance!!! HA HA HA HA I think the teachers were hippies and as stoned as most of the students! I must say NOT ME tho'. I was a farm girl who wanted to ride my horse forever! That was my best high in those days! I still laugh tho when I think of all the required stuff they gave us at the same time as voluntary attendance! An oxymoron I would think!
