I didn't shop for shoes, but I did find a Rolex for $100 :) The quality of the fakes here are amazing

You are definitely winning this thread ... you must have a really interesting job (or at very least, your job takes you a lot of very interesting places!).

I used to travel a lot. I started making sure I had at least a couple of days wherever I went, otherwise it was one steel tube to a hotel and back to another steel tube.

Very nice. If you haven't watched a sunrise on the Haleakala crater, it might interest you. If you do it, bring warm clothes. It's only about 45 degrees up there, but it warms up quickly.

Yep, then ride a bicycle down. You get to see some pretty amazing views as you pass through about 4 climate zones. The lavender and protea fields are amazing.

My wife read some stories about people wrecking on those bikes and was hesitant to do that, so we drove it instead.

Probably a Delta Diamond Million-Miler by this point...

Yes, I started an interesting job about two years ago after 20+ years in the Electric & Gas Utility business. Working for Oracle, who started a Global vertical business in Gas, Electric, and Water, and needed thought leaders/strategists in this space. (MSU engineering education put to good use!) So I do get to travel the world meeting with utilities and speaking at conferences, and visiting implementation projects. It's the first travel job I've had and while I do love to travel, it takes a toll on the family.

I haven't hit the million miler yet, only about 300K, and I'm only a Platinum skymiles status now, but should hit diamond this year. At least business class makes travel more tolerable! The new dreamliner (Boeing's VP in charge of that project was also an MSU grad and Society of Women Engineers leader) on the way to PDX from Tokyo was amazing -- laid down flat and slept 8 hours, which I never get to do being 6'2" 225!!

Everyone who has traveled for years on their job tells me it gets old. I'm sure it will, but after two years I still look forward to seeing new places, cultures, people, etc. I just wish I could take my wife/kids along more often!

Happy to win something, I guess, even if it is just a BN thread! :wink:

Paris, France, reading up on the UCA win -- couldn't get it streaming :evil: but did pick up the audio -- sounded like a solid win with some shenangins in the 4th


on my way to Madrid today -- will be the first time in Spain for me, looking forward to it. Other than work priorities, my goals in Madrid include contributing to this week's look-a-like thread :)

Tried to post the other day from Bagram, Afghanistan (Internet there is spotty at best), so now I'm posting from Albuquerque.

Only one gunshot that I've heard so far.......in the last hour.

Gorgeous! Although my "magnetic" ball would likely get pulled into the water.

I envy you. Greece is on the Bucket List, no doubt.
