Getting Rooted in the USA
Well folks, this is it. This is the final blog from our round the world trip. We know we were making a lot of people jealous and pissing them off with our travels so we decided to come home! We appreciate the faithful followers and readers who stayed with us, and for those of you who for some reason are reading this but didn't read the rest of our blog postings ... well you missed out on some great stories!
As for what's next, we have decided to put our roots down in Denver, Colorado. Troy got a job at Qwest (which is a huge communications company in Colorado) and will start in another week. He actually got offered the job while we were still in Vanuatu so that was one huge stress off of us. As for me, I will be working too although that will be hard after not having to for three years. (I know, I know I have had it so rough.) We are a bit stressed out having to get settled back in. We have no cars so we have to shop for one, we have to find a house, we have to get our taxes done, we have to cook for ourselves, we're not diving today and we have found that drinking at 10am is frowned upon.
Along our travels we accumulated a few interesting facts we would like to share with you:
We have met some amazing people on the road, seen beautiful countries and have experienced some extraordinary cultures. All of which will be a few of the many things we will miss. But we will not miss the disgustingly long flights, the August heat of Egypt and bad hotel beds. But our travels are not over, they are just on pause. We just have to save our money again!
Nice work guys! I'm now going to have to find someone else to live vicariously through...

You rat bastards. I can't believe you didn't get ANY stomach issues. Were you staying at the Ritz or something? That's absolutely nuts.
