They started with a ride in an old Russian war jeep to save a few days time. "If I had that part to do over again, I would definitely walk the three days! I experienced my first migraine from sheer terror of thinking I was going to die any minute for about 8 hours straight. We kissed the ground at about 2000 feet in altitude to begin our 20 day trek which would take us through four distinct geological and climate zones. This lower elevation was predominantly Hindu and with lush green subtropical valleys, village houses made of bamboo with squash growing on the roofs and terraced rice fields and farmlands carved out of the jungle. Two days later we were walking through a canyon so narrow and deep that direct sunshine only penetrates at noon. A day after that, we're in pines so tall and dense you'd think you were in Oregon. "As we climbed in altitude the inhabitants changed to predominantly Tibetan Buddhists and Gurung with their picturesque homes made of rock and painted with touches of primary colors." While many of them fled from Tibet to Nepal when the Chinese took over, others have been there for centuries, the Mustang region was actually a part of Tibet in historic times. "One trail abruptly turned to sand just like you would find on Misison Beach. I looked up to see palm trees swaying in the wind, a not-so- subtile reminder that these regal mountains were underwater just 60 million years ago. In fact, in one river bed we took the time to search for fosselized nautilis shells and actually found some!" See next week's paper for a glimpse as to what it's like to cross 17,768-foot Thorung La, the highest point of the circuit, "Suddenly there is nothing but mountains, four of the world's 10 highest summits, looming on every horizon. The only things that came close were the first time I gazed into the Grand Canyon and my first glimpse of a 40 foot, 15 ton whale shark that was so close I could reach out and touch it. It's one of those moments when your eyes could not possibly get any wider!" Nancy has given this slide show for the Sierra Club at the San Diego Natural History Museum and at Rancho La Puerta. Be sure to mark your calendar for Nancy's narrated slide show of this amazing trek to the top of the world. Julian Library, January 16th at 1 PM.

(NAPS)--It seems Americans are all ears when it comes to learning ways to improve the sound from their PC, mobile phone or home theater. If you got a new system over the holiday here's some tips. According to a study by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), a majority of consumers view music and other audio content as a vital component of their daily lives. The study, "The Evolution of Audio: Is Anyone Listening?," found that 67 percent of consumers believe audio is an important part of their life, and almost half (48 percent) report they are always listening to some form of audio content. That love of sound may be especially prevalent among many of us who own entertainment centers, complete with flat- screen TVs--and with good reason. Experts say cinematic surround sound can bring out the realism, excitement and emotion of a movie or show, helping homeowners get more out of their viewing experience. The good news is that it can be simple to create a home entertainment system that sounds amazing. Dolby Laboratories offers the following tips to help you upgrade or optimize your home theater: Getting Started To enable HD surround sound from a home theater system, you'll need speakers, a subwoofer, an amplifier and a receiver. These devices are designed to work with the latest in audio technology to produce that cinematic experience you. want to have in your living room. Perfect Placement ideally, your front speakers should be positioned at ear level 5.1 speaker placements for your since most movie soundtracks are designed to sound best at this height. Better Bass There's no specific rule for placing a subwoofer beyond keeping it on the floor. The amount of bass you hear, however, will vary depending on the room or location. Try a few different places to determine what's best for you. Best Seats In The House If possible, center your seats between the surround speakers. The closer you place a speaker to the corners of a room, the more bass you'll hear. The Shape Of Things The shape of your room and how it's furnished will affect sound quality. Bare, metal or glass surfaces can cause reflections that result in harsher sound. By adding rugs, carpeting, wall hangings or curtains, you'll not only end up with better sound, but also a cozier room. All In One A home theater in a box (HTIB) is an alternative to buying a set of separate components. It combines components to simplify the buying and operating experience. These systems bundle a receiver with a full set of home theater speakers and sometimes also include a source device such as a DVD player.

[Outdoor New Utility Vehicles (NAPSA)--One of the most popular pieces of outdoor power equipment these days is the util- ity vehicle. From hunters to handymen, everyone seems to be using them. Why? The current crop of util- ity vehicles is practical, powerful and versatile--a far cry from their "golf cart with an attitude" prede- cessors. So what should you look for in a utility vehicle? "Take the time to really figure out how you will use a utility vehi- cle and what type of terrain you will encounter," advises Jerry Sandy, product manager for Husqvarna's HUV utility vehicle line. %)ecide up front what accessories and features are required for the types of tasks you plan to accomplish." Home & GardenFor jobs like brush clearing or hauling sup- plies to the garden, says Sandy, a compact utility vehicle may fit the bill. Larger tasks such as clearing snow, on the other hand, require a more powerful unit, four-wheel drive and accessories such as a snowplow attachment, tire chains and a cab enclosure. Property ManagementFor farmers, ranchers and timber owners, key factors include engine durability, payload capacity and traction for rough terrain. A smooth suspension maximizes comfort when traveling extended Are Popular, Practical TODAY'S UTILITY VEHICLES are a lot more than a "golf cart with atti- tude." From hunters to handy- men, everyone is using them. distances. Accessories such as windshields, heaters, electric winches and trailer hitches are also important. Hunting & Fishing--Out- doorsmen will want a utility vehi- cle that functions well in remote areas, so consider features such as certified rollover protection, four- wheel drive and locking differen- tials. A wide wheelbase and low center of gra4ty provide stability in rough conditions, and accessory items such as winches, hood racks, heavy-duty bumpers, and aggressive tires can be helpful.
