I am trying to sort out the pluses and minuses of different courses of action.
The kids are better with my going to the UK than they would be with Iraq. I might like the job there better, more challenging, working with military, troops etc. But there is the question of gear. I am getting older and my bones don’t like walking around with that much weight. BattleRattle right now can be up to 30% (minimum) of my body weight. The heat would be nice, but not a helmet all the time.
Knowing my assignment system, the real choice is go to the UK this winter, or get moved to the US this coming summer. UK is closer. I could retire.

I even have enough time to plan out the economics. Since the rest of the family will be here in Europe for at least three more years, seems kind of silly to get paid half as much to do my current work….
The new Olympic Stadium in Beijing taken in August 07. No, I didn’t use a weird filter or alter the photo, the air is that brown from pollution.
