       Additional Information  
      ...your bungee jump rope has just gone "snap" and you are freefalling towards a shallow grave, at high speed. In these conditions, your Ticket for Perpetual Locomotion will do you no good. You will have to come to a stop, straight lines or not, and a boat will not be obliged to break its journey to fish for your remains on the muddy river bottom. Imagine unlimited access to all forms of transport, in every last part of the earth! Picture yourself in the country with an Arabian horse, or standing in the desert sands with a camel signed over to you in a moment's notice! If you landed in the South Pole, a team of explorer's dogs would be obliged to break their journey and transport you across the icy wastelands. All of this is outlined in a hundred languages in the traveller's manual, with a pictorial explanation if all else fails.
