Well, Mario, it wasn't easy. Took me long nights peering by candlelight at the tiny handwriting of long-dead monks. Many days of travel through the dust and sand of the Gobi, seeking out long-lost manuscripts. Evenings of danger, fraught with Peril. Many's the time I've seen Dawn peeking over the mountains, calling me to go on even though my body, racked by weariness and fever, would feign rest. Driving a canoe headlong into a typhoon, making for the lost island of Tir na nOg and the Ms. found in a bottle there. Mushing through the whiteout of a Yukon blizzard. Crawling through the mud of the trenches while the shells of the Treacherous Hun burst around me. Standing nose-deep in the Forbidden Swamp of Bloog, afraid to move as the headhunting Jivaro searched for me. Nope, it wasn't easy at all.
