Default Dealing

Not cards or billy - I mean dealing with facts
You've left the UK, in many cases permanently (with the exception of the occasional trip back). To rip-off a Brandon Lee interview, you only get to do stuff so many times, and you have no idea how many that is going to be. By moving away, you have instatntly reduced that number where stuff in Britain is concerned. So, does it bother you that next time you visit a place in the UK, it may be the last?
There are just too many places to go! Do you think its as or more important to find new places?

Depends on what you want to see. There's that "1,000 places to see before you die" book, which title depresses me cos ain't no way I'm seeing 1,000 different places given the time I have left.

As someone interested in UK family history and gardening, there are so many places I want to go that it kills me to be stuck here so much of the time. That said, I make the most of my time and use any excuse to go somewhere new in the US. I've covered most of Texas (duh) but never been to the Pac NW so that's high on my list.

The other thing is -- as important as where you go is who you go with. You can make memories that last a lifetime with good friends, no matter where you are.

Thinking like that is a sure way to depression. Never look back only forwards.

All true - I love the wide open spaces out here, and you're right about who you share it with. Its just that when you go back and visit those places that used to be a few minutes away, it takes on a whole new significance now.

Before I left the UK there were a few lasts I was concerned with:-

Last time I had to sit on the M1 in rush hour
Last 5 times I had a good quality fish supper
That was the last time I saw my furniture (hopefully it should be here soon)
Last time I had to experience British 'customer service' (using the term in it's loosest possible!)

Sure -- because you realise what you were missing while you were there -- what you could have been doing, and that the UK has a lot to offer. But so do other places, and you're here now, so.....

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, I've got big plans for this place - I just wondered how everyone else thought about the subject

I think I've done 'Its a small world' more than enough .......one time was one to many........

I like finding new places...I'm a great fan of road trips............
