I knew I'd like this as soon as I started reading, and I was right. :) You could make this into a great YA adventure novel by writing about his entire trip north and back. I enjoyed it a lot!

I so enjoyed this piece, a view into the heart of a "thinker". Congratulations on your EC, and first place in Advanced. Say, why don't you try getting some of those novels published?? :)
