Thought I'd let you guys know I'm off on vacation to Australia tomorrow night for about 10 days, so you don't wonder where I got off to. I'll be doing fun stuff like riding kangaroos and hunting crocodiles and whatever else those crazy Aussies do, so I won't be spending much time online, although I'll check in every now and again.

One of my favorite parts about Australia is that almost every car was small - hardly any big cars, trucks or SUVs - and there were tons of mopeds and motorcycles around. Didn't see any electrics, but lots of little gas powered mopeds. Sydney has a really good train system too. My sister-in-law and her fiance don't even own a car. They usually take the train, or sometimes a cab, and rent a car when they need one.
Turns out that Sydney is the Australian equivalent of San Francisco, by the way. They're very similar cities. So since SF is my favorite city in the US, that worked out nicely.
I'll post some photos later.
