Some challenges and goals are born out of necessity, logic, or desire.  This is not one of those.  I am not in need of a free meal, there is no real benefit of eating a 72 ounce steak.  I could feel better skipping a meal and that would be just as free.  So I say to you, Tom:

We've known each other for many years but this is the first time you've ever come to me to force-feed myself large quantities of beef.  You were afraid to be in my debt.  I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, made a good living, the police protected you and there were courts of law and you didn't need a friend like me to eat large quantities of beef. But, now you come to me and you say "Joey, entertain me by eating large quantities of beef." But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into our website and you ask me to do cow murder for a little entertainment. 

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do something totally ridiculous for me.  But, until that day, accept this justice as a gift.

I'm starting my own four-month roadtrip across the US on June 1st. Good luck with the planning - I'm starting to go a little crazy at the thought of it all!

Maybe I'll see you on the way - we're travelling in opposite directions and I am only doing 29/30 states, but you never know....

Have fun!
