In elementary school, I used to travel with my genius friend, Lars Hansen (Weslaco, Texas), to watch the National Geographic traveling movies that would come to convention centers in the Valley – usually McAllen, Texas, as I recall, and we would watch these adventures like rafting down the Grand Canyon, and many others.
