This is just to say I’m departing for awhile and won’t be back for awhile, if ever. I leave in 2 days to spend a month and a half travelling in Thailand/Cambodia/Laos. After that I’m moving back to the states, and probably won’t have time for the SDMB.

I’m just posting this so nobody thinks I walked off in a huff or anything. This is a cool board, easily the most intelligent one I’ve seen. Thanks for the fun, and best fishes to all.

When I read this I thought: “Who is this huy, I’ve never seen him”.

So I clicked the profile thingie. Bear with me, under ‘interests’:

“books, baseball, molesting small animals”

Uh-huh. Happy travels mate.

Bye furt! I’ll miss you! One less voice of rational Christianity on the Board. :frowning: I hope you have a great time on your journeys.

(Um, Coldfire, I’m fairly certain the small animals moletation thing was a joke.)

OK. Never really did get that Christian Humour though.

Wait… it’s that Jodih girl… shall I start explaining what I really meant now or wait for her to respond ?

*heads for the pit, just in case :wink: *

Well at least you aren’t making a furtive departure. Enjoy your sojourn.

That is one strange thing about this board & that is people always write ‘these’ leaving messages.

Frankly there are so many people on the board, I can’t keep track of them.

Well, I’ll miss you, furt. I always enjoyed your posts and you were always nice to everyone. Quite the civilized gentelman. Our loss. Have a safe and happy trip.

Don’t get me wrong–I love life. I’m just finding it harder and harder to keep myself amused.

Furt! Have you read The Beach by Alex Garland? I only ask because it’s about a guy who takes a trip similar to the one you’re about to embark upon. Great, great book - and about to be a movie starring Leonardo DiCapsizio!

I’m still debating whether I want to see the movie.

Here’s a link to the Amazon.com page about the book, if you’re interested.

Hi Furt!

I never got the chance to exchange any allegedly witty banter with you, but let me just say that your presence will be more than missed. I saw you on a few threads and I hope that you find a way to post once you get back to the US.

Enjoy yourself, your travels, and the beauty you find. Please share anything you care to with the rest of us.
