Bye Bye - for now

Yes, it is true that I am leaving the Ferals - for a short while. I have accpeted the offer of an IT job at the My Baw Baw Alpine Resort for winter 2010. I will keep the website going from my remote location. I will also send postcards back to you all to make you want to be here with me. You can still reach me on my usual email addresses and if you need a snail mail address for me you can send red cross parcels and other mail paraphenalia to

Just a quick g'day to say that I am alive and well and training at altitude. Well, sort of. Being in the office 6 days a week doesn't lend itself to getting out much. There's a gym with one treadmill but the competition for it is surprisingly steep. One of my lodgemates is training for a half marathon on Melbourne in July and regularly does 15km sessions on it. So on my day off, I have been walking and exploring the resort and the trails around it. We had 15cm of snow for the opening weekend and it was magic. No ski lifts running yet, though. Lots of people tobogganing. And since then it has rained all the snow away and returned the mountain to its green state.
The noise that woke me this morning was the sound of the snow making machines so there are white patches again.
