    FIDO °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°° Spend an hour with a personally guided tour of the historic Tribune Tower in downtown Oakland. This is the signature building of the East Bay with wrap-around four-sided neon clocks and massive neon letters adorn the building. There is no other building quite like the Tribune anywhere in the country. Take a peek inside the clock rooms, "hang out" atop the tower where Harry Houdini hung out in 1923, and explore some other obscure corners of this singular and mysterious edifice. Learn a little of the more recent history of this Bay Area landmark over coffee, at the swell Modern Coffee shop on the towers main floor. This adventure will be scheduled with you sometime in 2014.

    LEADER OF THE PACK °°°°° °°°°° John Law and his friends who are key players in the underground, urban exploration community in France, will take you wandering through the deeper, hidden layers of Paris. A truly singular opportunity, to be sure. °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°

    Paris has an unrivaled network of underground tunnels—the city itself was built by quarrying limestone from the soil underneath the buildings themselves, so there are hundreds of miles of quarry tunnels alone. Add to that all tunnels used for the underground metro system, telephone cables, sewers and so forth and you can travel around the entire city without ever seeing daylight. °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°°°° °°

    This rare opportunity INCLUDES a roundtrip airfare from the continental US or Europe to France, accommodations for 2 days, and a very special French dinner with members of a shadowy cabal of Parisian explorers. (Please Note: Some destinations may not be officially sanctioned locations. Each explorer must accept full responsibility for their personal safety. This adventure will be scheduled with you sometime in 2014.)
