NEW JOURNEY SUGGESTION FOR YOU MICHAEL!!! by travellinglol68 on 26 July 2006 8:07pm
 
I would LOVE to see Michael film a series following in the footsteps of the great Captain James Cook, as he did with Hemingway. What do you think? Here is a quick resume of Cook's life (c/o the Captain Cook Society website) to show the countries covered:

Captain James Cook
1728: Born at Marton (near modern Middlesbrough), Yorkshire, Britain
1736: Family moves a few miles to Great Ayton, Yorkshire. He attends the village school.
1744: He moves several miles to the coastal village of Staithes and is apprenticed to a shop keeper.
1746: He moves south to Whitby, where he works for Captain John Walker on his ships.
1755: Joins the Royal Navy as an ordinary seaman
1759: Takes part in surveying the St. Lawrence River in Canada
1760-67: Surveys the islands of Newfoundland, St. Pierre and Miquelon off the east coast of Canada
1768-71: First Voyage round the world in the ship Endeavour
1772-75: Second Voyage round the world in the ships Resolution and Adventure
1776-80: Third Voyage round the world in the ships Resolution and Discovery, completed without him
1779: Killed at Hawaii

A fine suggestion.

It would be good as long as it is not a time travel and does not end the way it did for poor Captain Cook. I work with a Hawaiian. I am going to have to give Lei grief on Friday that she murdered Captain Cook...

All kidding aside, seems like an interesting prospect.

I should have explained. Lei is a native Hawaiian supervisor where I work. I strode in and blurted out "You murdered Captain Cook!" Lei didn't miss a beat and responded with "you haoles brought your diseases!" My team manager was doubled over with laughter.
