It looks like we will be staying in Australia as I am just working out the contract details for another company. The new project hasn’t been announced yet so I can’t go into any details.
I am finding that it cost a whole lot more to move across Australia that I thought. I guess it could because of the big, deadly, no-man land that is the center of the Australia which despite what you may think, is about the size of the U.S.
At first I wanted to just take the time to drive across the country, stop and see Uluru on the way (it’s on my list), and have a bit of adventure. Well turns out that isn’t such a good idea even if the hamster mobile does have 4-wheel drive. It’s not like driving across the U.S. were you’ll at least get AM stations the entire way and are guaranteed to find a Motel 6 and a 7-ll every 20 miles. Middle of summer, the outback, and road trip actually has a fatality rate. Not that I’ve really taken any time to do that level of research, just heard many stories about people breaking down in the middle of nowhere and their bodies being recovered several days later.
I have also learned a new lesson about having short hair again and that lesson is "hats." I got into the shower the other morning and quickly learned I had gotten a sunburn. At first I was going to say that the top of the head is bad place to get a sunburn, then I thought that there isn't a really good place to get a sunburn, and then I thought of some REALLY bad places you could get a sunburn, and that's when I decided to stop thinking about it.
