So long U.S.A

The family and I are up and moving back to Australia.

With two young ones in the family now, we have decided to move so my parents can enjoy the grandkids for a while.

I have had a good time in the U.S of A. I have met and made some good friends through CLSB and riding with NESBA. I wish I had the chance to ride more and meet more people, but starting a new family and buying a house tends to get in the way somewhat.

We fly out early December, just in time for a nice Aussie summer.

Glenn

Best of luck to you and your family Glenn. Post of some pics of your new home when you get there. Btw, it is definately safe to go back now since Gardner is moving to Spain.

I'm in for the Brickhouse.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I think it may be good. Let me discuss it with the boss tonight and I'll let you know.

12/2 is also my last day of work, so I think I would need a designated driver that night.

Ok well if 12/2 doesn't work we'll try for 11/18 (next week) as Thanksgiving Friday will be tough for everyone I think.
