Well thats quite the path you've taken!
Take a bit of time aside and go back to NY.. you will be surprised how nice it is!
I left in the early 70s and it was a mess.. It is so much nicer now.
ALSO Mr Cavanagh with a good ol Irish name like that you really have to get to IRELAND. It will be the trip of your life I will personally guarantee that.
Alaska Im afraid is bit out of our regular touring area.. although at times parts of MICHIGAN certainly feel like we are there. So I guess I probably wont be running into you along the way! We will have to be content to cross paths here on LIVE IRELAND!
