Thank you, Remo. I remember the backstory here, and I have been meaning to ask you if you were still there and what your impression has been. You've just answered me.
My post was geared towatd people still living in their own area and the idealistic, usually youthful attitude that its priorities can be changed more easily than the harsh reality allows.
I have more Q's for you, would love to see you in chat to be able to ask some survival details, such as making a living, amongst others. Uhh.. I think it's 6am Sundays Greenwich time, or later, but I might have more leeway in the week coming up. What you did took balls. I think someone else did it with you. It's a distant dream for somebody else.
I never cashed the Walmart money order. I was too paranoid. Years later, I knew I was wrong to be, but I never regretted the money loss.
Ever watch Dance of the Little Swans?
=) Good wishes for your future, Remo. Said partly in envy.
