yeah, especially given the geographical/directional constraints, i think this is a really cool way to run it

basically, everyone is guaranteed to get first shot at a pick when most people are roughly in the same area of the globe at the same time

so Xander got effective first pick for "West Coast of the U.S." (and beyond if he wants, but he's then foregoing anything in that region)

I got effective first pick for "South Pacific"

and so on

at some point someone will get first pick for "Western Europe," basically

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Loop 1, Round 3, Pick 8

I think there's enough to do here to occupy me for a week. If nothing else I can just wander from bar to bar and drink; I do love me a hard-drinkin' people.

That's if I'm tired of visiting the 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in this city, of course. And, y'know, it was voted the #1 travel destination in the world in 2014 and 2015 by the no-doubt discerning readers of a leading travel publication, so I bet it has some other stuff going for it too.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

I did a long azz writeup (well, few words, lots of pics), but the server just went down at work & no way I'm going to try to type out all those image addresses.

I'm going to Samoa.

If the server is back up in next 3 hours you'll get a writeup, otherwise Monday.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

i hope you guys know i'm just throwing shade in the spirit of fun. my favorite part about drafts is ridiculing each other's picks(even if they are places I'D LOVE to visit).

i thought the best part about the last draft was domer ripping me... and me ripping him. i can't believe he thought going to mars would be a good thing to do.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

btw filthy, good luck getting decent alcohol in the Maldives

i was talking to a bartender in Berlin who worked for a while at a luxury resort in the Seychelles; she said they regularly used Strawberry Quik in their cocktails (Brad Pitt got one!)

also all the fish was shipped in and none of it was fresh

maybe the Maldives are different tho

Maldives a GREAT pick, but you went through like 150 lines of longitude there.

Samoa is okay, I guess. 3 straight islands though?

Kyoto obviously great.

maldives is muslim, so maybe it is hard to get good alcohol and coke. but my custom 747 flying yacht can carry plenty of booze and drugs and models.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Wait, do we all get custom 747 flying yachts? Because in that case I might like to go to [UNDRAFTED AND FUNCTIONALLY UNINHABITED FROZEN CONTINENT] and take a gander around.

Models are more than welcome to join me.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

Starting Point: LAS VEGAS 115.1398 W

Pick 1: ALASKA 149.4937 W
Pick 2: TUVALU 177.6493 E
Pick 3: VLADIVOSTOK 132.0065 E

I know few people who have been to Russia and I know zero people who have been to Eastern Russia. Vladivostok is 5779 miles from Moscow. It might as well be a different world. New York to Hawaii is 4899 miles.






Vegas was 2 weeks ago. After a week in the wilderness and a week on a desert island it's time for some civilization. It's time for some "culture". This feels like more of an authentic Russian experience than Moscow, less touristy.

It might be different to what most people would pick, but within a 24 week vacation variety is the spice of life.
