    Talking about that sandy beach, take a better look...yes, it’s a very nice beach and it is a beautiful place, but keep it quiet. There are already several sailing boats there (one of them is mine). It is not crowded yet, and I would really like to keep it that way:p

    Longliner,

    I'll keep repeating "these arh ah hills, these arh ah hills..." next time I'm lugging my backpack up the trail from the shelters or dragging a large buck out of the woods.

    One thing I like about our hills/mountains is that there generally gentle topography & low elevations do not reqiure you to be a mountainer to get up close and personal with them.

    Don't know. It suprised me to see today in the paper that Ohio generates about 7% more electricity from coal than PA. Maybe I ought to be asking you that.

    Weather is definitly turning. We had the first snow to amount to much last night & a little today.

    longliner,
    you're also invited to the Cíes Islands trip.
    What the hell! If we gather enough people, we may even have a fiesta with the seagulls!

    Forget Australia, the rules and regulations and bureaucratic interference in every aspect of your life can only be described as mind numbing. South East Asia is the place, never before has this region been more user friendly for expats whether doing business or making the most of life. You can leave your thatched roof house on the beach somewhere north of Phuket and cruise down to the marina on your Harley to check out your yacht or to the airport from where you can be anywhere in a couple of hours. Shopping for a new computer in super civilised Singapore, catching up with some friends for some awesome diving in Borneo, surfing in Sumatra, crewing on a racing yacht from Hong Kong to Philipines, doing some business in Subic Bay, partying in Bejing, fishing in the Andaman islands, its all right here, its safe, its inexpensive and there are no rules. Get a life.

    Malaysia..if you are Muslim, Thailand..if you are non Muslim. Singapore ..if you love 'fully boarding school’ or 'hostel' life, Indonesia..I love spending my holidays there..real cheap..always avoid those crowded area..thousands of isolated island..sailing on tight budget..do you take rice everyday,tiger prawn, fresh water lobster,sea lobster, mud crab,or Australian beef steak and lamb roast ?we have them here very cheap. Ever collect escargot from your neighbours garden for free..no need to apply for fishing licenses..unless you want to become profesional fisherman, enjoy big game hunting ? Wild boars a plenty..licensed to hunt whole year round. In Kuala Lumpur our capital there is little Korea, Little India, Arabs Teritory,Persian area, Japanese area,the Chinese, Taiwanese and Hong Kee minggles with the locals, Indons, Vietnamese, Kampuchean/Kemboja and even Nepalese have their fair share of that metropolitan city.A group do celebrate Octoberfest complete with the om pah pah..There is 17 public holidays per annum..12 are major merry making festivals..! Malaysia where summer whole year round, population is about 27 millions and there is about 5 million foreign workers in Malaysia at any one time..Maybe that can be used as measuring element for jobs opportunity.Any way there is one Swiss guy who really believe the way to live is to be like the aborigine..so he do spend some few years inside the Borneo jungles with a Penan clan..they go around naked..:) got to hunt him down and deport him..If he doesn't make hell lot of noise about the right of choices for the Penans way of life..maybe he will still have his right of way to go around naked without our goverment giving a hoot.;) So..it is another option here in Malaysia..you actually can choose to be fully cloth, partially cloth or fully naked..for your life.. it's up to you..:D
