  • I've often wondered what words passed between these men........

    "Is it that way, to where I need to be?"

    "Am I going in the right direction to get to the place I want to see?"

    Is this the quickest way to get to somewhere?"

    "Will going this way avoid somewhere else?"

    "Have you ever been down there?"
