The map did show his route, but I was just wondering where that geological
formation was.  As for the dialogue, well, I tend to skip words and just
get the gist of what is said.  

As for that "guy", I wonder how many people outside the U.S. knew who he
was.  I knew it the minute I saw him (fairly obvious clues), but even
though you give his first name in the last panel, I tend to wonder.
