That sounds like a wonderful visit. You should save some money and go again when it's not work related. I visited a friend I met on here from Arizona just the other week. It was awesome. My first time flying all by myself. FREEDOM. We rekindled a friendship and it's just great.
Well, I don't know how often you come back but as you may or may not know, gaia has a CEO who's been bleeding this site dry of money from its' users. And it's not the first time he's done it either. Nay, I believe this would be his fifth time. All the sites had died, much like this one will soon enough.
