[color=#408000]Between Sandy trying hard to be a nuisance on the East Coast; earthquake on the west coast of Canada; and a tsunami for Hawaii, mixed in with a bit of snow -do they pay you extra to put up with things like that?

No snow, (well occasionally (like once in ten years) we get some white stuff), so no salt, and able to ride year round. It is also the driest State in the driest (inhabited) continent, so we dont have to worry too much about rain. We live a short distance from one of the premium wine growing areas, and there are no bad beers, - some people think this is pretty good. I know I do.

I spent ~5 years or so living in Maryland, and there's one thing I learned: Any time there is any kind of inclement weather, you can count on the power going out for extended periods of time. I have never lived anywhere where the power went out as often, and as for long, as it did in Maryland - and I've lived in a lot of places. Two-day power outages were looked on as just a normal part of life! I couldn't believe it. If I ever moved back to Maryland (and I wouldn't), I'd be buying (or building) a whole-house generator.

My nephew lives on the Outer Banks and I'm sure he's bailed by now. I lived in Virginia Beach WAAAAAAY back when and when there was a quarter inch of snow you may as well stick your head up your butt because you were not going anywhere. But I had watched on T.V. before coming to work and North Carolina was being hammered with snow. They can have it. I want a winter like last year!!!!!! Rode all winter with few exceptions.

I'm over here in Michigan and we have high winds and rain! We've been without power since 4:30 pm yesterday. What a bummer, don't know when they'll get the power back on.

We've had high winds and rain here near Cleveland since yesterday morning. It got really bad last night. A huge tree on the house across the street from me was blown down overnight, fortunately it blew into the road, and not onto a house.

nice and chilly in Florida, us Floridians are mourning the loss of the H.M.S. Bounty, she was an icon of the Tampa bay area for as long as i can remember. thankfully the coast guard was able to rescue the crew. the ship was a fine one and will be missed in the downtown harbor. hope everyone else is safe and doing well up north. Hopefully we don't lose any GoldWings in the storm.

Dodge the bullet here in York. Just a boatload of leaves down but no damage. Checked on my daughter in Maryland and surprise she still has power.
The "Down Under" really sounds good right about now.

Have a look at this site, which shows winds across the US in real time - it's pretty fascinating:

The scenes that have been broadcast on TV show sights that are hard to comprehend. And it has turned colder as well. Yesterday was a bit warmer here, but the 9% humidity makes it all bearable. Oz can comfortable, and it can be a beast, but it is still called the "Lucky Country". Unemployment is around 5.2%, the AU$1.00 buys around US$1.03, and there are still a lot of mining jobs available if you dont mind "fly in - fly out" arrangements or living in fairly remote places.

Of course, Oz is only about an hour away, and then you are on the aeroplane and wake up in Oz. There are direct Qantas flights from DFW and LAX direct and non-stop - so you get to watch four movies if you are that way inclined, or sleep if that is your want. From American and British friends that have visited here, it is easy because we mainly speak English, we are generally friendly, there are great swimming beaches (with sand), fishing, golfing, and motorcycling. Come on down, the weather is fine, and the scenery is different. I can show you around if you would like a guide.

Watching the weather and news channels evedently nothing happened except in NY and NJ. I got more info from around the Great Lakes on this site than I did anyere else. I realize NY has a lot of people, but the storm affected a lot more of the country then NY and NJ.

I will speak to anyone on this board :D . You can bring Tacos, but leave the salt behind, as you North Americans do not know when to stop with the salt. Oh, and I do not like spicy food, now, but once I did. I think because the gall bladder reached its 'use by date' before most of the rest of me, the consideration is that I lay low on spicy food.

But bring whatever, and whoever, with you, and you will be able to enjoy our summer if you arrive before Christmas. You might even enjoy coming down to the beach for Christmas Day - and that would be something different.

I trust that you are all safe and well, and that your GW have not been damaged. Keep warm and dry.

Little beaver. It was announced on TV tonight that the Adelaide (capital city of the State of South Australia) Mayor has just announced that he is making it easy for people to set up food vans around the city's lunchtime locations. You would need a van (either a caravan or a facility mounted on the back of a light truck) that is fitted out with hygienic facilities for the type of food that you are prepared to sell. There are currently no Taco vans in the mix.

So you had better pack your bags, get a visa (and if you are going to sell things, you will not be able to stay on a Visitor visa), but getting one shouldnt be too much of a trouble - just tell them that you are a GW rider come to enjoy the sun :P As long as you dont have too many convictions for drugs, thuggery, or crimes of violence, you should be alright. It is cheaper to apply for a visa from your local Australian Consulate's office, and they should either be online, phonebook, or able to be visited if one is nearby.
Australian Consulates

Chicago
Denver
Honolulu
Houston
Los Angeles
New York
New York UN
San Francisco

So you should be able to find one close to you - and excuse to go for a ride.
Here is a list of Australian offices:

Hey Beave! It would be great to go "down under" It all sounds so nice especially the weather. Can I book passage on your Honda boat? As you can see we survived the storm here in Michigan, the winds have died down, the rain quit, and the power has been restored now all I have to do is clean up the fallen trees and branches. Feel sorry for those on the east coast though with all the damage they've sustained and so many without power still and even worse those that have lost their lives.

I have a chainsaw and I'm hell on trees, I feel like hooking up my trailer and hauling ass to affected location to help out I could get several 5 gallon cans of gasoline in my trailer.. They need gasoline there badly...If we got folks from the outside to bring in gasoline by the cans maybe they could get out of that line and go elsewhere to fill up their tanks, away from there...What the heck are they thinking..something should have been thought out better...I also have a pressure washer too for clean up...Hummm.. I can see a boatload of bikers with trailers of gasoline coming to help out these cages... :shock: Water, food, ect. they need portable outhouses on every corner, these people need to go potty, I'm not trying to be funny this is serious...They need food and water and warm clothes, fire wood...Toilet paper.. We need to take care of our own..I want to see helicopters with supplies like yesterday to these people...I want to see boats arriving with supplies too and thousands of Red cross folks on the ground..I know what it's like to be affected by a bad storm, my parents put everything they had into a motel in Aransas Pass, Texas back in the 60's and a hurricane came through and messed it up.. :shock:

The Bever spends to much time eating pizza,and is still behind working on that HONDA boat. Thank God the Lord didn't choose him to build the ark.He would take thousands of years to complete for sure.So don't hold your breath in waiting for pictures of the HONDA boat. As for the storm, it did get even over here and just about blew down my big back fence.I now am in the process of replacing 4 big posts.But I can't complain,I have a roof over my head and plenty of toilet paper.

I checked on those direct flights but they said I couldn't park my wing in the asle beside my seat so I said never mind. But I too, would like to one day take a long (months) vacation to down under and see what I could. I wonder what it would cost to rent a wing for 3 months?? Of course, if I am ever going to do it, I shouldn't wait much longer. I ain't gettin any younger. The doc is trying to get me off my bike and I am getting a bad case of the fall aparts lately. BUT, I got another roll of baling wire, two new rolls od duct tape and I'm putting myself back together as we speak. So if I can get my ticker to stop acting up, I can patch the rest of me back together for awhile longer. Maybe I'll plan a trip soon.
