To put you in the picture, woodworking is not my only reason for travelling. My sister lives in Georgia and I do not like it. She is not only my sister but a good friend and I miss her all the time. The upside of this is the US seems to be my destination of choice, and given the sheer in-exhaustable supply of woodworking opportunities there are there, it is a good choice.
Now for those of you not from Australia, we have this strange employment concept called ‘long service’. Essentially after each 10 years with the same employer (full time) you get 3 months paid leave. Now a lot of my co workers save this up (my boss has 3 lots) for their retirement. No way I say. So I am off to see sis for 8 weeks, yea ha.
The plan is to have an intensive WW experience combined with some travel. Most of the time I am in Georgia, north of Atlanta. But I have a week in Philadelphia, a weekend in NYC, and a short trip to Orlando.
I hope to do some courses, meet some LJs, do a lot of woodworking, and any other WW thing that comes my way.
So I am looking for suggestions. I will be bringing a small tool case which will be featured in the next edition of this blog, and I do have some thoughts about what to do. But please send me any suggestions or refer this to anyone you think might make me a cup of coffee over a few wood shavings.
Thanks for your help in advance.
