I love that book. It's my own personal Boomer Bible.

I've been going through and back-logging my old paper journal I wrote when I was in Europe the second time, back when I had your original copy of the book and was reading it in Germany. Ran across tons of quotes from the book, and I also wrote down at one point that the Slender Gourd Immortal and the Crystal Spring Immortal are my heroes ;>
