Well the reason I have not been on TC much of late is because I have indeed moved to an island on a coral reef on the Great Barrier Reef of Australia! I am now living and working at Heron Island Resort, an incredibly beautiful place surrounded by the most insane animal life on the planet, you can swim right off the jetty to one of the top 5 snorkeling/dive sites in the world and have been swimming with sharks, 8ft diameter manta rays and massive turtles just in the last few days as well as watching the annual green turtle egg laying on the beach, it is like living in "finding nemo".. The Island is a 2hour cat ride from the mainland or a little over 30 mins by helicopter and it takes about 30 mins to walk completely around the island, nice. planning to be here for a while to save some dough and pay some mounting bills which should be very achievable with the free accom/food and no expenses like cars,gas,phone etc.. there is no cell service here and one staff computer which is impossible to get on so it can be hard to stay in touch particularly with Sarah but hopefully we can get her out here to live it up for a while too.. there is currently no tiki here but gonna get started on some carving as soon as i can get some chisels out here.. anyways.. here are a few pics..

He probably samples those umbrella drinks and slathers lotion on the girls all day.

My job here is "public areas officer" and "houseman" which is basically blasting the shit from the some 400,000 birds from the sidewalks and collecting laundry in the little buggy as the girls change linen in the rooms, However I may soon be "staff services administrator" but will fill in the details if i can pull it off...
Then of course there is the cocktail sipping and lotion application technician roles which are my primary responsibilities clearly.
