Of Davidoffs and Land Rovers and The Trophy of Camels
From the Print Edition:
James Woods, May/Jun 97
(continued from page 1)
But heaven likewise came in the intoxicating fragrance of the native Dayak's hardwood cook fires as I enjoyed the gentle swing of a jungle hammock hung between the Rovers. On the late nights and early mornings that relieved our never-ending days, heaven became a quiet moment under a sky devoid of electric lights; where the stars hung with such dimensional quality against the pitchest black universe that even the Milky Way became vividly visible and seemed only an arm's length away.
If you think you have the "right stuff" to compete for the Camel Trophy, you can contact Tom Collins, Camel Trophy, P.O. Box 587, Snowmass, CO 81657. But realize that the grueling event, which is scheduled this year from May 13 to 31 over 1,440 miles of rugged terrain in Mongolia, attracts more than a million applicants annually. If you make the grade, bring your wits, your cunning, your strength and your patience--but most of all, be sure to bring a supply of your favorite cigars.
