    One day, I am just going to sell all my sh*t, buy a plane ticket, and just move to Australia.  I still have to wait a few years until I retire, but instead of retiring to some state for "snow birds" like Arizona or Florida I am going to move to Australia. ...

    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...
