How long are you over there? Probably some great riding in the area, depending where you are.

There are about 4-5 people on this board (on a good day) now, so unfortunately I doubt you'll find anyone in Italy here.

I'm surprised they kept you overseas, unless you requested it. Wouldn't you have normally "come home" by now?

By now, normally. But its so much cheaper for them to keep a single guy overseas than it is to transfer someone with a family. I've been trying to get to Italy for a very long time, even volunteered for Korea just to get the chance. And the pay is so much better overseas that it, quite literally, is not funny.

I did request this assignment and I'm not complaining. Now if only my bike would get here, and my bed.
