So, what's in Orangeville besides Pot shops?
furnace install for some guy that owned a private school. He built a facility for his son...basically a very fancy batting cage.

that sounds awesome! did you make it to uluru, or are you going to do that in winter when going back to melbourne? i wanted to go there when i visited australia a couple years ago but it was november and already too hot there.
No, not yet. Coming from Melbourne I did the Oodnadatta Track and then to Coober Pedy and camped underground in an old opal mine. After that I headed south towards the coast along the Great Australian Bight. I'll leave Uluru for my second leg of the trip to Darwin. Summer in Australia is not enjoyable at all to travel in. Crazy 40C+ heat in the interior, rains that close a lot of roads near the coast, and flies everywhere that fly into your ears and eyeballs and mouth.

I've been to China, Japan, and Cambodia. I've lived in South Korea and Thailand. My goal is to buy a condo in Vietnam and I'll probably die there. I'd like to one day travel the world before this body drops. Everyone should travel abroad. You come to the realization that your thoughts are small, the world is a big place, and everything you've been conditioned to think a certain way. There are millions of people who think and live differently.

My wife went back home to Chongqing (China) to spend some time with her mom, and left me and the boy stuck in the middle of winter in Ohio.

She was just rubbing it in, just send me pictures of the flowers blooming around Chongqing.

Went to Key West last month. Fun for a couple of days, but that's about all I'd want to spend there.

I was in a non-tourist area for couple weeks. The locals seem to like fried foods and had a meat heavy diet. I need veggies.

The night time "lunch" was an interesting experience, lotta fried foods though. It was by some call center buildings and since the people inside work USA hours, their break was in the middle of the night.

I really missed a freshly brewed cup of coffee while I was there.

Last year did San Antonio, New Orleans, Miami, Greece (Athens, Santorini, Mykonos), and the Bahamas. Santorini was awesome, would go back without a doubt.

I missed good bread the most, there was a lot of lechon but i never noticed the fried foods all that much, i was in Mindanao though, not sure if that matters.

My whole family (parents/bro/sis & their kids/spouses) and my family did a family trip to Oahu over the summer. Spent 10 days at the Aulani Resort. While I enjoyed my time there, I won't be back to Oahu or Aulani probably ever again unless the trip was free or something. Way too expensive and commercialized. We're planning another trip to Cabo, where at least we can get all inclusive.
My girlfriend tried to talk me into going there with our kids. I suggested we go to Kauai instead, because of all the outdoor activities there. Everyone had a wonderful time, would highly recommend if you ever go back to Hawaii.

Went up to Floyd, Va. the other weekend. Met my sister there and went to the weekly flatflootin' ho-down at the local drug store. Was actually a decent time. The band was playing, and the folks couldn't wait to get out there and shuffle around. Then I met my nephew and we blew up an old dresser with some Tannerite and a 308. Good times......good times.....
