    Hellllloooo from Hawaii!!

    Hey guys -

    just wanted to say hello from the big island!! I sold everything I own and have embarked on a bit of a trip. Next stop - Bangkok! This being a family friendly site I don't have to worry about the jokes that normally follow after announcing the destination

    Here's a pic of me and a good friend using her truck using some DIY's I brought along. (20 dollar gift - people love them)

    Just thought I'd check in!

    as you were.

    Have a great trip, I did the same thing back in '05, sold the house/quit the job and basically spent a year on the road. Dont spend too much time spinning your wheels in Bangkok, or get too hassled buy the tuk-tuk drivers!
    If you don't have much of a plan... go down to Krabi.
    Good luck & safe travels.

    Yes. We've heard those jokes. Something about a turnstile.

    Anyway, have fun leaving one tropical paradise to go to another, you lucky guy you.
