Design Notes: I started with the Mummy Transport, and then decided that I loved it (after a lot of modifications, a box (which I really enjoyed figuring out how to make), and a lot of checks with brickset to see if it looked relatively consistent with the theme). My favorite two ones are the Mummy Transport and the Secret Amazon Shrine. I plan to make an Adventurers train (but I need a train first) and a large temple. The boat is also a favorite of mine, and I made it by just playing around. There are my first real cars, and I really like how they look. I'm going to try to make more for this theme (probably Dino Island). The hardest to build was the Bi-Plane, because I really had no idea of how to make it. And yes, the descriptions are supposed to look like ones from LEGO.
Theme Notes: I'm a huge Adventurers fan, and I think it's what got me into LEGO. I only had one set (the second largest Dino Island one) until Orient Expedition came out, but the cool dinosaurs, the boat, the cars, all were awesome. I loved the stories and games, although it was all overshadowed by BIONICLE. The Egypt theme was the best of them, but unfortunately I don't have any of it.
I'd really appreciate comments, as always.
Yeah, it's unfortunate as almost none (perhaps one, but probably none) are still built and I didn't post them anywhere else. They aren't on my computer any more so I don't have any records. I'll try to find them and may repost them since this appears to be an interesting creation.

my, my, you ARE and idealistic dreamer
when did i ever say war is good? And yeah the guys i met in boot were some of the greatest people i have met. kid you are an delusional pacifist. pure and simple
???? I never said that people in boot camp are bad. I did say though that it's tough. I don't see how I'm a delusional pacifist, and don't call me kid. I'm in no way a pacifist-I would like to personally slit the throat of every drug dealer and maker there is-I just think that if there is no army, there will be no war-just small fights. And this has nothing to do with that.
