Well I went ahead and sent in my deposit and expression of interest, thought it might be about time to start a thread on it. Even though its a few months out. Already making a ton of plans and setting things in motion... its a little like standing at the top of the hill and rolling rocks down. They're hard to move at first, and seem like they go pretty slow, but I expect it will crescendo to a roar as it gets closer Followed Seth's blog thread about it last year with enthusiasm... I've been dreaming for quite a while of participating in an overseas adventure such as this one. I fully intend to finish this bad boy. Hopefully it will all work out successfully in the end. Also already meeting a bunch of good folks who are very friendly and helpful, thanks everybody- you've been a great support so far, even this early on. I figured it would be a good idea to send in the EoI and get that out of the way, and then all the details should work themselves out Ah well, anything I can do to help, let me know. Anybody else from the US planning on going, this year?
