Well.... Two months now. Here's what we have been up too.

  • Some tripping around West Virginia, but there was no snow. Some hiking, they don't do tramps here. (Alas) We tramped anyways - a cross country ski trail, that had no snow, actually it was stream most of the way so I was pretty ex tactic about that - we biv'ed the night in the rain without a fire, because we are such dicks, and forgot matches... and could not make fire with our - ur um, sticks...
  • A trip up into Connecticut, Brrrr.... But no snow. Mike got very sick and stayed in close proximity to the porcelain for three days...
  • We started a business in the USA - It's called UNeepe, Inc - Distributing Touchstones.
  • A visit to NYC. Cost us $35 USD to park the car for 24hrs. That's a bargin eh! Our Hostel also cost a total of $35 USD for both of us - Go figure.
  • We have exhibited in a trade show. Good learning experience. Will do that again very soon!
  • We have stood on the battlefield at Gettysburg and witnessed the reincarnated soldier spirits in the form mental juvenile woodpeckers, doing fierce battle in wind chills of approx -20C. Frightening stuff!
  • We too have stood in this cold, barefoot by the BBQ, in snow (finally some snow now!) at a log cabin in West Virginia. Fortunately we had a roaring log fire to retreat too.
  • Have spent a good amount of time at Terri's place, Heather's, [insert American accent] Moms place, playing with the pets, Shadow the dog & Simba the bird 'green cheeked conure'.

Of course those are just the highlights, there have been some very long days on the interstate listening to some very cool audio books, such as Enders Game, Speaker for the dead, Gates of fire, Star tide rising, Sundiver, and The uplift war to mention a few. Gates of fire and Enders Game I highly recommend. (Mike)

We fly out to Dublin 20th Feb.. My goodness... Guinness awaits us. (Dam Pelican)

Love the photo of Heather and the crab. You both look so happy... Glad the plan for world domination is coming along well, you both look like your really enjoying it.

Mike, I went on a tramp with Kylie, Jules and Mike Plank. I saw a puddle of brown gunky stinky water. I thought about what you would have done in that situation and went for it: splashed stinky water all over the others. They looked very disgusted!! I laughed hard!

Miss you and Heather.

About 10mins from Thad and Pamela's place. SWEET! Disc golf, 4.8 mile lake circuit and lots of squirels to chase... It's so funny when they miss time their jump and head butt a tree instead, a little head shake and they prance off through the leaf litter.

My first ever Ice Hockey game, yeah! But apparently your supposed to call it Hockey. We were 'rooting' for the Capitols, personally I was just trying to figure out where the hell the puck was...

I knew I should have brought my skis... And some matches... But actually, all the same it is always great getting out. Especially when it is wet!
