Right ok, i did it!

Return London-Dallas, leave June the 17th and come home 31st of August, so a good two and half months in America.

So far, i met my Girlfriend in Dallas, go on a trip to Tennessee i believe whilst also soaking up a bit of Texas, shooting range, mudding, dancing etc, there is a wedding for me to attend as well, it seems as if a lot of people marry young in Texas!

Then 4 of my friends from England come over to New York, meet me in Dallas and do 4 days there, with my girlfriend showing us about, then fly to L.A, stay there for a few days, then to Vegas. They go home and i fly back to Texas for the 13th.

Then i have just under two months. There may be a Canada trip, toronto to Vancouver, and im going to go West first, Arizona, California etc, gonna head ot Colorado and see the Rockies.

Then its to go east and Alabama, Georgia. Then the last leg will culminate in Chigago, NY, Boston, Washington D.C before coming back to Texas for a few days.

This is a sketch but i will start feeling out the days and will endevour to see some of you, whoever is down, ill try and weave it alll in. Would love to go to Hillsborough, just need to work on the logistics of that! I'll do some work on a farm for a bit if anyone wants!!!!

Point being, it is all coming together, and them flights are not refundable so i am coming!

So will keep you posted!

Sounds good. When it comes closer to time hit me up with a PM and we'll meet up in Chicago, along with anyone else up for an adventure. There's a lot of neat stuff to do there, and good food.

Hey, fantastic, once i start getting things in place, i shall let you know but would be good to meet as many people as possible.

Now i have the flight dates, i can now structure it and figure out where i am going to be and at what time!

I'll have to keep a close eye on UFC events as well, to try and get too!

I have no idea how New York has changed since i last went and what places are to be wary of.

And Moose, when i head to Chigago, it would be great to look you up!

Perhaps we'll meet next time i'm in London, I did try to meet you for UFC85 :Whistle: :laugh:


Incase anyone wants to know, I am covering Washington DC, Vaginia, Illinois, Iowa, New York, and New Jersey...so if you want to see me, let me know :ninja:

South Park is a personal fave.

Have you ever been there? The town is actually taken after Fairplay Colorado witch is in south park county It's a very nice small mountain town in the Rockies.

Well i stay at home for uni, but asked for maintaince payments, so i got this interest free loan, that i saved up in an ISA, for me to travel with when i graduate.

Also, because i worked full time before going back to uni, i get paid pretty good for my 2 days i do at work, which is still more than most of them lazy students do!
