 After a little over a year in Thailand, the wife and I are coming back "home" for a visit.

(Also, vital query within)


We're making giant loop between CO, NE, SD, ND, and MN to visit friends and family. 

My plans for the trip include drinking as many delicious and varied beers as possible, and avoiding frostbite.

The M-I-L is already making life difficult through various ninja-level techniques of applied passive aggressiveness. I suspect she is pissed that we're spending Easter with my family instead of hers...guess she'll need to suck it up.

Vital Query - Is there still a #husi IRC channel somewhere?

Yup. It's at slashnet.org. See you  there.

My wife and I both wanted to travel long term, so we came over in January of last year. Took a 1 month TEFL certification and found teaching jobs in southern Thailand.  

We'll be here for one more year at least, but I don't really enjoy the teaching, so I'll be working from home as a coder-for-hire.
