Trivia_is_defined as insignificant or unessential matters, as well as obscure and useless knowledge. It is derived from the Latin words tri, “three,” and via, “ways.” In Roman times trivia would describe an intersection of three roads. At this point there would be kiosks and places to post information for travelers that was frequently ignored. We have made our obscure and useless knowledge into a game for you all, a chance to learn more about us and prove how well you know us. If you wish to keep score you may create your own scoring rubric and compete with other readers.

Choose the best answer to the following questions:

1. Choose the things, ordered from most important to least important, that we find most pleasing.

a) showers, tailwinds, laundry, free food

b) “I have bean juice all over me.”

Now that you are breathing hard from intense thought we hope you picked up some useless facts about us. We’ve had six months in the saddle and we are accumulating the marks of the road. Our callow skin has grown tough and tan, and our muscles are starting to match our spirits. With the Andes towering over us it couldn’t have come at a later time.

    Bahahahhaa. Favorite.

    I was about one in three with the tan lines, and got 2/3 I guessed on in the top. I forgot to guess on the band name, ha. Those muscles look shopped.

    I vote trivia becomes a regular post, like Mailbag Monday. I am amassing useless knowledge and memes and it would help.

    • Busted, the muscle adjustment in the custom options of photoshop was to tempting.
      We’ll see what we can gather for the next post!

    Honesty is the best policy… We were wondering about some of this… We are also wondering about the crocodile and boa constrictor story.

    Please enlighten all of us.

    • Crocodile snatched a bird underneath us while we were sitting on a bridge and eating oreos in southern Mexico.

      The giant snake slithered off of the road, also in southern Mexico.
