It's been about 3 weeks since the move... how's it gone?!  :D

Nice, sounds like you found some good places to explore!

Where'd DW end up with regarding teaching?

So far so good. :)
finished our first road trip. :D

Las Vegas 2/10 - No need to come back intersting once, that will do for life

Almost time for work. :)

heheheh.  My sig-O went there on business and it was declared that we'd NEVER go there.

Sounds like you're in a region with a lot of Mustachian resources nearby ... I'm sure you'll do fine.  A company like Dassault is usually a class act when sending people abroad.  Hopefully if the exchange rate works in your favour on the way back home, you can give yourself a "raise".  Worked for me in 2002 when my Cdn$ salary was translated into Euros and then back again in 2003.  If the exchange rate works against you, you can argue that using the exchange rate at time of transfer has penalized you.

Death Valley 9/10 - coming back in spring to camp and enjoy the night sky
Las Vegas 2/10 - No need to come back intersting once, that will do for life
Grand Canyon 9/10 - coming back to hike and spend more time there
Dixie National Forrest 9/10 - coming back to hike and spend more time there
Desert overall 9/10 - just gorgeous
Grand Staircase 8/10 - just hiking in a real life western.
Bryce Canyon 10/10 - Gorgeous! definitely coming back to hike and spend more time there
Salt Lake City 7/10 - quite nice, might be a good place to live, enjoyed the counter culture there. :)
City of Rocks 7/10 - A heaven for climbers, lovely hikes for sure but a long way off the beaten track
Lake Tahoe 9/10 Beautiful, coming back to hike and spend more time there. :)

Almost time for work. :)

Did you go to Red Rock Canyons just outside Vegas?  It's more of a climbing destination...but it's got a lot of hiking too probably.

Wait till you see Yosemite... (Joshua Tree...Smith, Oregon...etc)
