The Mrs and I are heading off to the US for about five weeks in a few days' time, leaving you in the more-than-capable hands of Dervish.

I expect to have Internet connectivity most of the time but I just thought I'd let you know in case I disappear for a while. ;-)

Play nicely. :)

Not this time, sadly. Spending a couple of days in LA, then off to Portland OR, then a road trip south to Phoenix, then the Grand Canyon and those wonderful parks around there - Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly, etc.

I don't live in Phoenix anymore, but I used to post some pictures of the area on this board. Go to the Mammoth Saloon in Goldfield (E. of Phoenix-go down Hwy 60-google the rest). They have a great deck where you can relax and look at Superstition Mnt. Keep going up 88 for incredible views of Canyon Lake-just be ready for some no-guard-rail, 2 lane, twisting mnt. roads. It takes some getting used to.

I will! I made it to Portland after some hassles getting into the US.

Met up with Kara's sister and Michelle Klein-Haas in LA and will catch up with Cynigal here before heading to phoenix.

A few photos if anyone's interested. We're in Oregon at the moment, where I spent yesterday on a road trip with NNJ's main squeeze to the Oregon coast. The weather was cold, wet and windy, making for some great photos.
