Initial Post

So, you walk into work for donuts and laughter, knowing that there is some big announcement later on, none the wiser. The first thing I thought when i heard that they were clsoing down the Burlington Development Center was...Wow, I'm free. This is a gift from above. Now, I'm not quite so certain.

Unless I get posted in Europe, I am traveling. It would take six figures to get me to stay in NC. And that's just not going to happen.

So here I am. Somewhere between March and May, I will become unemployed. I will pick up my pack, get to an airport, and fly away. And that scares the hell out of me. I really have no idea what I'm doing, I just know that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I can't afford not to take it. It's daunting, any number of things could go wrong.

So, right now I'm wondering about flights...Or about a boat. I wonder if there is any way to travel by boat to iceland.
