I noticed today that my Distance 'score' on my profile has tripped over 5 million feet.
I had a mad moment of musing just where that might get me to, from here.
I obviously have too much time on my hands

Then start walking, takes only about 3.5 mil to my place. Might even find a bottle of cider ;-)

How big are the odds that these 2 random thumbnails both have 'a' line in them and they align perfectly?

Barely halfway across the Atlantic RDB.
At the current rate, expect me to hove to at your mooring in about ten years' time

    Weather permitting I'm sure it wouldn't take that long.  However, if you want to catch up to DA's footage man you'd have to fly several times a day and everyday.

That ship has already sailed RDB.  I'll never catch him now

No doubt it sailed, and a long time ago.  Oh well, there are other challenges to work toward.  If my count is correct you are leading the totem search by a long shot.

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Olympics in person.  It is quite the experience and I'm glad I was able to do it.  I do watch both winter and summer Olympics on TV now but I'd sure like to see the games in person at least once more.  

Maybe I should start planning to see the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, France.  I see where ticket sales start 1 DEC 2022 so I really need to make a decision soon if I want one of the premier ticket packages.
