Thanks Babs. I visited Downstream about a year ago now. I enjoyed it a lot. Where is your home base Babs? You've mentioned living in more places than I can count.



I'm currently living on the East coast of Florida, near Kennedy, but doing a lot of traveling.

I've had 44 legal residences now, lifetime, in 10 different states, including childhood moves, and I've always loved to travel, so yeah, I've been around some.

FWIW, my mom was born in Winnipeg, so I've been up there many times as well, though not recently. I think it's very cool that both you and Charles Mousseau from WoV are from there.

Again, great thread PG. So all cleared you're going to make ~$500 for this awesome trip, and that doesn't include the value of the chips you collected?

Wow babs! You need to make a thread about all the places you've lived, give us some insight on each and your favorite tips/spots/etc. One could learn a lot about a lot of places (in the US I assume) from you =).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

IBYA that is a perfectly cooked steak!

Thanks Don!

Babs that's cool that you've had the opportunity to live so many places. I think you mentioned before in the chip thread about your mom being from Winnipeg.

Romes I haven't checked the final numbers but ya it's nice that a trip that I had planned to cost $1000-$1500 will end up netting me a couple bucks. I'm going to take a couple days off when I get home cause I am heading to Edmonton, Alberta for a tournament series in a few weeks. I always try and make sure I don't burn out with my lifestyle.

Just got home. Nice to be home for a couple weeks before I leave again. There is something to be said for sleeping in your own bed and not living out of a suitcase lol.
