Hi Guys, This is really wonderful, my thanks to those involved especially Andrew Field for his up keep of this site. I live in Dawsonville, approximately 60 miles from Atlanta, in the mountains. Georgia very pretty, much like North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Nowadays I do nothing remotely close to my career in SA where I worked as a Financial Planner. When we got to the States our first State was California. We arrived in the midst of a severe recession, so I ended up driving 18 wheelers across the States. It was a brilliant way to learn America. I loved the sabbatical, the diesel must have got to me. Todate I have been to 48 of the 50 States. Nowadays I work for a Pest Control Company in Gainesville as a Field Inspector. I have a son Jordan Long who is in the Military here in the States. He is a Chopper Pilot based at Fort Rucker Alabama.He spent five months last year in Afghanistan. With him in Uniform we Longs completed Four Generations of being Military Folk. I a! m in regular contact with my twin Garth
