Fruitloop,

Great blog man. For anyone who has ever done what you did, or has ever thought about it, it is some really powerful stuff. A lot of what you wrote in your blog hit close to home for me, as I just returned back to the states in August after 4 years in Taiwan. However, I am younger than you are (26). I can't even imagine doing what you did at 36 and with a wife. I have mad respect for you bro. I wish you nothing but the best! Sending good vibes your way.

Probably not a whole lot of new information, but here's a BBC perspective on the topic:

Hi fruitloop. How's it going? I've been checking your blog out regularly, but there haven't been any updates for a long time. Hope everything is going OK.
