I was depressed a few nights ago because several of you here and others from another forum have been putting together various meet ups that I cannot make. At first, I thought that it was a matter of both the time and the money. After surfing around the 'net and window shopping (which is what I usually do when depressed), I came to the conclusion that...
...it's only a matter of the time, not money.
Yes, that's right - for the first time in my 38+ years on this earth, I am applying for a passport. I haven't booked anything yet, and there are still no guarantees, but I am looking at flying in on the morning of 9 October 2006 and returning home on the afternoon of 14 October.
As the time gets closer and the trip is confirmed, I'll be posting more here. I'd like to meet up with as many of you as possible.
