Yeah, that would be amazing, I'd look into a bus trip or something, tickets alone will take all of your budget. I could never do that and I have always gone to a lot of sporting events, just too much where I feel I could do more. Being there just to be there though, that's a very interesting idea.

Just from looking around, hotel rooms in Rio are already outrageous. I can't imagine how expensive they'll be for the WC or the Olympics. Seeing some of the WC in the northern cities might be doable from a cost standpoint. You also need a $160 visa to go to Brazil.

Yeah, they're pretty much outrageous every day the week, even when not in season.

finally got confirmation today that my job will keep me at home (in Toronto) most of the time - i actually got a promotion before xmas - but there was no guarantee that the travel for my job would change all that much. this is exciting b/c i've spent too much of the last while sitting in an airport, hotel room, or generic boardroom/office - and finally i feel like my life can turn back to normal a bit

if you're going to Rio for the Olympics then go and have fun - if you're wanting to go to S. Am. in general then I'd say go to Buenos Aires (and also see Argentina)...BA is my favourite city by far in S. Am. Santiago and Lima are also nice enough - but go there if you're planning to also see Chile/Peru.

As far as Sao Paolo ... it's fine...but you're not doing much there.

ETA - if anyone is seriously thinking about taking a trip to South America and wants any recommendations feel free to message me - I'm happy to give you tips.

Glad it sounds like you had an awesome time there. Playa's gorgy! I'm not sure how it is in the US but the Canadian press has taken to making it sound like Mexico is where you go if you want to be beheaded by drug lords Mexico's an awesome place to go for a vacation and the Playa del Carmen is so wonderful.

Essentially, lead on for 3+ years and she's likely moving out of state like it's no little thing.

Like George Thorogood, I'll have one bourbon, one scotch, and one beer.

i'm sorry to hear about that.

not to step on toes, but if you had something going on for 3+ years and then she's just going away as if she doesn't care then it will probably be better for you in the long run...someone's cutting ties with you that you're probably better off w/o???

haven't realized that I'm already here for over 3 years now with 18000 posts. Thinking about it, guys like DHF, massiv or BWC are here way longer than I am. Getting old...


btw, is Teemu still alive?

I forgot all about it, which is completely ridiculous and sad since I've been blasting King Animal in my car the last two-and-a-half months.

So, with all that rain that came, I heard it's all going to freeze this afternoon at some point. Really excited I get to drive on ice later.

Ya the weather is messed up lately. Supposed to freeze here in Rockford in a couple hours and snow 2-4 inches to cover up the ice. Not cool.

Sounds like you guys have a fun day ahead of you with that weather... We're suppose to get some nasty weather down here too, but just thunder storms all day and tons of rain, hail, strong wind gusts, and maybe a tornado or two with

Treacherous roads are my favorite. I also love that the people around me are as cautious as I am.

I saw him post something in the Entertainment board a couple of days ago. Not sure why he avoids here now.

Montreal and Ottawa have pretty good GDTs up. I'm sure they would be even better if I wasn't on my phone.

Up here in Milwaukee it's only been snowing for an hour and we've already got over an inch of snow. It's coming down pretty good, I believe it will be making its way to Chicago shortly.

It's moving Northeast (mostly North). Pretty sure if its not already done in Chicago, it will be shortly. Ended in Rockford already.
