Hey MasterMind, calm down!
At least he is trying and I don't know the answers

God, Ken, my brain hurts..Lemme get back to you on this.
Re: New (Travel) Competition by Helen on 2 April 2005 5:57pm
Is it Alan Hinkes? Is it K2? and #3--
he will be the first British climber to reach the summit of all the 14 8000 metre peaks?

Isn`t it Kangchenjunga? Helen wins though, I think!

Re: New (Travel) Competition by Ken Dunn on 9 April 2005 7:52pm
No all correct answers so far. No prize for Mastermind even if he/she gets them all correct.

If the answer to question 1 is "JF" then I really shouldn't be here.

I've decided on the prize for this competition. I hope you like it and it may appeal to any past or present stamp collectors who use the site. It should also be of interest to anyone. Please note that the winner will have to provide me, by email, their full home address for posting of the prize.
The prize is a collection of 100 postage stamps, each from a different country of the world. Please note that my email is not as currently in the vital statistics but I will direct the winner to it in the site or provide it to the winner if their email is in the Vital Statistics. Having your email address in the Vitals is not a condition for being selected for the prize.
Good luck with your entries. The quizmaster's decision on the winner is final.

Two final rules:
1) The first all correct answer posted on this thread will be declared the winner.
2) Correct postings from people known to (have) misuse(d) this website will be disqualified.

I will try to check this thread on a weekly basis for winning entries.
