Default leaving...

just wanted to fill you guys in....
(might be a little lenghty - sorry)

my wife and i decided (not only, but also for ins reasons) to leave the usa. we'll be leaving in january since my wife's visa is running out.

since we don't want to return to europe in winter, we planned a 6-months trip to australia. from there we go back to europe -
where? we don't know yet, but we can work anywhere in the eu without a permit.

austraila:
requires still some research but we've played with that idea before.
we just need to get more sponsors. we hope we can get somebody to ship our vehicle and maybe somebody to put down an import deposit for the vehicle (will be returned after rig has been shipped out of au)

anyhow, there will be exciting times but we are also a bit sad leaving, since we have enjoyed many years in this great climate...

we have contacted jeep for sponsorship of a new vehicle and they showed interest, but we also contacted ford, quigley and sportsmoblie to try to get a rig that might be more suited for our kind of traveling. - a 4x4 diesel van with mild camper conversion.
my xj has served us well but it's time to retire it for long term trips, since the body is pretty beat up (rolled twice)...
anyhow, if non of the sponsors come through we probably still go with the xj since we cannot afford a vehicle AND a 6-months trip.

if any of you have input, ideas, know people who can help or know somebody who might want to sponsor us just let me know.

meanwile we are also still working on our alaska coverage...
5 articles are supposed to be published in off-road adventures (see thread in trip reports).
we also might display the truck at sema.

I was just going to send you all the pics and then you can throw out the ones that aren't interesting.

Traurig zu hören, dass Sie den cherokee pensionieren müssen Hofft, dass Sie etwas finden, es zu ersetzen, kennen Sie, dass chrysler deutsch besessen jetzt vielleicht ist, könnten sie etwas für Sie machen? Ich hoffe alles der Brunnen von goe für Sie zwei und alle Ihre Träume werden wahr. Sie sind zwei sehr nette Leute und, den ich am besten für Sie wünsche! Es war eine große Zeit, die wir mit Ihnen hier oben in Alaska geteilt haben, hofft Sie, dass Burschen zurückkommen können. Seien Sie sicher in alles Sie machen und viel Glück.

I can understand about half of that, but I'd have to break out the dictionary to translate the rest.

Gary, congradulations zu Ihnen und der Ehefrau auf einem schönen Baby, ist es das beste Ding, das je zu mir es seperates die Jungen von Männern geschehen ist. Ich hoffe, dass alles gut für Sie und die neue Familie geht. Am besten von Wünschen! Auch habe ich Sie den anderen Tag wenn Sie Burschen, die zurück von Krankenhaus aber Sie wo Schlafen geworden worden sind, ich habe ein Kopie das 3d gps Programm für Sie gerufen, kommt und erhält es.

thanks jerry
btw: i assume you used a translation machine which translates every word without context
the fountain: i wish you well... well can also be a spring or fountain. wrong word here

here's a translation back to english (word for word)...

"Sad to hear that you have to retire the Cherokee. Hopes that you find
something to replace it. Have you met that Chrysler is possessed by German
now, maybe is, could do something for you? I hope all the fountain of 'goe'
(?) for you two and all your dreams come true. You are two very nice people
and whom I wish for you the best way. It was a big time which we shared with
you up here in Alaska, she hopes that the boys can come back. Be assured in
everything you do and good luck."
