Back in the USA

Hi folks!

I made it back from Thailand in one piece. I’m jet-lagged as all-get-out right now, but I expect that by Monday I’ll be mostly back on schedule and things will be back to normal(ish) for a bit. I’m facing a mountainous backlog right now of tasks – for Rampant Games, the family, and The Day Job. If you sent me an email over the last two weeks and I somehow missed it, I apologize… there are a lot of things I wasn’t able to get to while out of the country, and I had good intentions of getting back to everyone, but some things got put off (sometimes because I lacked access to some things from the road) and then forgotten. I’m sorry about that.

Anyway, I must also adjust to going from tropical weather to cold and snow. *Sigh.* So far my day job has only sent me to warm climates in wintertime, for which I cannot complain that much.

I had some really good intentions of doing some SERIOUS retro-RPG playing while away, but that didn’t really happen. More on that in a future post. However, I did get some game-dev done… not as much as I’d like, and nothing definitive, but from an experimentation / learning perspective I felt like it was tremendously successful.

Anyway, I’m glad to be back home. While the timing was inconvenient (would it ever be convenient?), I guess I’d have to say that it was a pretty cool life experience that I don’t think I would ever have had if I hadn’t been “forced” into it by my job. So that much was pretty cool.

    Jet lag always bothers me a lot more going west to east for some reason. The last time I was in Thailand it was 26 hours from the time I left my hotel in Bangkok to go to the airport to the time I opened my own front door in TN. And that’s not counting the 8 hour train ride from NE Thailand the previous day.

    You did go at a good time. It might not seem like it since I know it was very hot, but this is really the coolest time of year and the rainy season ended in October. I can usually only go in the summer since that is when the kids are out of school so it is even hotter then.

    Oh, forgot to say Welcome Back! and glad you had a safe and hopefully productive trip.

    Welcome back and hope you had fun there. I’ve never been to Thailand, but it’s on my list of vacation sites. Not so much Bangkok, but the beaches away from the major cities. My friends have highly recommended them.
