    How Much Should I Bring With Me

    How much money (US dollars) do you think would be sufficient to have at my disposal when I move to Australia to start my life over?  I know that a one way plane ticket will cost me about $2000... but really, how much do you think it would cost to start a new life?

    Would It Be Easy to Do?

    Would I have a hard time, or easy time leaving America and finding a new life in Australia?  By the time that I leave the States, I will be 40 and retired from the Armed Forces.  I should have a degree in something business-like by then also.  Are Australians...
