Hollow earth

Devoted readers may recall an adventure tourism tour itinerary to the Inner Hollow Earth which I blogged a while back. Unhappily, Thomas Roche reports that the trip has been cancelled.
Provo, Utah-based adventurer and tour leader Steve Currey (whose principal claim to fame seems to be that he accidentally invented the self-bailing rowing raft, which “revolutionized the river rafting industry”—ample qualification, I agree, for a trip to the center of our hollow Earth) died last year, under circumstances that seem suspiciously vague. “Quietly and peacefully?” That’s how you always go when you’ve been shot by a blow dart fired by Bulgarian hitmen hired by the corebound Lava Lords and their Mantle Man agents.
It does make you wonder.
