In just under 7 hours I'll be on a plane winging it's way to Bangkok and then Manila for 2 weeks in the Philippines and a fortnight in Thailand after that.
As a consequence I'll be off and away and thought I'd take this chance to wish all my fellow chewers a merry christmas and happy new year.
I hope you all have as good a holiday season as I know I'm going to and I look forward to returning to the board in the new year and seeing everything I've missed in the interim. I don't think I've been away from the boards this long actually.
For those of you who are friends of mine on facebook there should be the odd photo update when I get the chance, but mostly it's going to be beaches, tropical jungles, incredible villages and cities, amazing food and ridiculously cheap beer, so forgive me if I don't get to a pc as often as I'd like (old Bilbos going on an adventure again at last).
Anyways, I'll let Rowly Birkin QC play me off the stage and I'll offer you all the very best and safest of holiday seasons.
See ya soon fellas.
