I just had to include at least one (somewhat distant) ad for Gauloises cigarettes. The French brand is very common here and, since they're sold at the little shop on our base, they're pretty common with the lads now too. By the way, Gauloises used to sponsor, I believe, the Raid Gauloise, which was the first major adventure race and precursor to the Eco-Challenge. Just a little odd that a cigarette company would sponsor such an aerobic race. "Wow, you ran, rappelled, and paddled a great leg Francois! Now light up a smooth, flavorful Gauloise cigarette and head to flavor country!"
