I know... starting your own post count celebration thread is sadder than asking for your account info to be deleted... BUT... there is more.
As some of you know... I moved from Scotland to Kentucky last September. I didn't take much with me... just a bag of clothes and a bag of knives and camping gear.
Since then... I've got myself an ID, a SS#, a work permit, a job, a bank account, a wife, a stepson, a 40th birthday, a couple of new knives, a truck and a warm and welcoming place to call home.
And I've had a lot of help... not just from direct Family... but from people who saw that I was trying my best... and just needed a break.
It took 8 months of paperwork, money and physical examinations to earn permission to come here with the intent of staying permanently... I don't know why I was inspected for syphilis... but I was told that they inspect everyone applying for a Visa... and thankfully... I don't have it.
Of course I have met a lot of assholes too... but they are a global phenomenon and you will find them in every corner of the globe... and I have met surprisingly few.
Spend some time in Scotland and you will know why I was surprised.
Anyway... thanks for having me.
It's a big Country.... full of big hearts... and big trucks.
I love my truck.
Here's to 10k on the best damn forum.
