Our happy Crew will be poking around Hadrian's Wall in a few weeks. Which brings to mind a couple of years ago, when the Crew was designing a t-shirt for their first superactivity (to Philmont). They were insistent that there be a Latin tag on it. After all, someone had pointed out to them,
QUIDQUID LATINE DICTUM SIT, ALTUM VIDETUR. Whatever is said in Latin seems profound.
Well, I love a good Latin quotation as much as anybody, so I translated the following for them.
GREX AUDENS CXIX Venturing Crew 119
AD ALBUQUERQUENSAM SINISTRORSUM IRE SCIEBAM. I knew I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque.
UBICUMQUE ANTEA NEMO EXII, AUDACTER EXIRE To boldly go where no man has gone before
EGO! OPTO REDIRE! AD PHILIPPIMONTUM! I! Wanna go back! To Philmont!
AMATOR LATIUS FEMINA OMNIGENA OPTATUS. All women want a Latin lover
And now you can show how big a Latin lover you are, too!
