Leaving in 2 weeks.............mixed emotions............. never been away from home for such a long stretch.

Maybe in a way this forum will be comforting.

Can't wait to go though.
I think that you should definitely share some stories here - I have a feeling that plenty of people would read them...

Understandable to be apprehensive about leaving but I think you'll have an overall positive experience. Many guys get a fair bit of grief from their wives for the first few weeks, but then it'll be payday and a cheque will deposited in your account and suddenly you wife will be more supportive...

I'll send you a PM with some things that I know I'd appreciate knowing ahead of time if it were my first season, and if you have any specific questions just fire away.

Think of it as a vacation...albeit a slightly less than exotic one...!!
