G'Day to you!

Your ESL training will land you a job in nearly any US school district, from what I can tell having been in the profession for a few years. Another way to slide into American education quite readily is if you have Special Education certification or background that could lead to certification. Distri...

Will the real Ballarat please stand up

Howdy Gravelrash! Wow, I have been reading your posts and am having fun learning about Australia and the original Ballarat. I notice that you are an ESL teacher? I was also a school teacher for a number of years - very rewarding profession, but exploring the backcountry is even better! Now, just to ...

Thanks Nancy for the explanation. Those little sayings are kind of cute! So, you're from British Columbia? I've explored up there a few times in the past six years ... now those are mountains! Just holler if you wish a book - I had to order 100 for my first run to get a decent price with a four-colo...

Final thought for the night, playing off of what desert4wd said above:

Everybody is so darned nice here!

Howdy Desert4wd! Okay, this is my last reply, and then I'm hitting the sack for some shuteye! I like the little waving icon fellow with the welcome sign ... cute. You and Andy both have some nice websites. I've run across them before, a year or so ago (probably stole some photos from them ... hee he...

Hi Andy! You bet you can! Seems like everyone so far is asking for my "John Henry" for some reason. What, like I'm going to be famous some day or something? No matter the reason, this is kind of a high right now for me. The only time I ever gave out my autographs before this was in my two past lives...

New guy to the forum, old guy to DV territory

Howdy folks, As invited by Panamint Charlie's website, I am just stoppin' by to say hello. I've been out exploring DV since 1955, at age 4, when my dad and mom first took me to the National Monument. My love of the magnificent land runs very deep. This territory brings a serenity to my spirit that c...
