Geographic monuments

How lucky am I, that I got to go to both the Equator and the Prime Meridian in the same year?

At the Prime Meridian in Greenwich, England, in October

At the Equator (GPS location) outside of Quito, Ecuador in April, on my 40th birthday

Randy at the Equator Monument - only 300 yards or so off the mark, and a much nicer, older monument

Congratulations. Not many people get to do this in their lifetime.

No Shellback initiation, either! I'm so happy for you both!

That's awesome! Maybe someday, I'll do ONE of those!
