Well Dan's been gone for a few weeks now, he's off down in Costa Rica soaking up the sun and enjoying the surf while I'm left back here at the coalface trying to save up and visit him. Check out his blog in the Costa Rica section to see what he's been up to. Meanwhile, the weather's been warming up here, and like Dan said in the last blog I finally got a good electrical job for a little local company in Banff which is awesome. apart from that I have to get up early now, and think about stuff during the day, and rip the crap out of my poor hands that haven't even seen tools for over a year now... great to have some money coming in again though, times were getting tough there for a while. All good now I'm back on track and me and Kim(my lovely girlfriend for any of you not up with the goss) are off to Costa Rica to visit Dan for couple of weeks at the end of the month, then shortly after we get back I'm off to London to meet up with Timmey P, Tux, Sam and Dan "Systems Analyst/Onsite Engineer" for a mission down to Spain and a couple of surrounding countries. So really looking forward to getting back on the road and catching up with some of the Mt Eden crew over in Europe. Its a shame to have to leave such a great bunch of friends, a good job and an awesome girlfriend behind here in the Bow Valley but it'll also be nice to get back into the travelling thing again for sure. Heres a few photos from over the last month including a few of Dans Farewell party which was an absolute riot!!!

Oh yeah, I moved in with Joel, Bugz and Lucy over in Banff yesterday to save a bit of money so I'll be here for the next month. it's sweet because it's right next to where I meet for work in the morning, and they have an awesome balcony that gets heaps of sun and has a pretty cool view. plus they're pretty cool too I guess
