Yes, I am using my real name and of course, I will be visiting friends while in HK, the last time I was here I did not have as much free time as I would have liked.
I didn't get to do any hiking the last time that I was here but I have hiked many of the neighboring islands, and had a wonderful dinner on the beach in Shek-O. I dont have anything to hide and have had a long history on the internet, nothing bad of course.
It seems that I have opened up a huge hornets nest in this fine community and for that I apologize.
Who knows, after my visit HK, hanging out with friends at night, and checking out the job market during the day, I can always head back to the states. I am a born Texan, and have a great family so I will always have a place to come back to in the states. :-) My selling house is just the way of generating $$$ for traveling and job seeking. I don't see the harm in that.
I am also not the type to dream little. If you are going to dream, why not dream big.
This is also a great quote from my favorite author:
Only the following items should be considered to be grave faults: not respecting another's rights: allowing oneself to be paralyzed by fear; feeling guilty; believing that one does not deserve the good or ill that happens in one's life; being a coward. We will love our enemies, but not make alliances with them. They were placed in our path in order to test our sword, and we should, out of respect for them, struggle against them. We will choose our enemies. -- Paulo Coelho in Like the Flowing River.
thanks for your help
