I was hitchhiking around Europe

I was hitchhiking around Europe in 1971, when I was 18, with this copy of A Hitchhiker's Guide to Europe. At one point I found myself lying in the middle of a field, a little bit drunk, when it occurred to me that somebody should write a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It didn't occur to me that it might actually be me years later.
CNN is reporting that author Douglas Adams died of a heart attack on Friday. So long, and thanks for all the fish.
