    Less than 3 weeks to go until I pack up my family and ship ourselves off to the USA for the next 2 years.

    I arrive in St Louis around 29 March and will be living there until end March 2009. I have ine stressed out, chaotic household right now.

    Any last minute advice on what I should bring, shouldn't bring, should buy, should prepare myself for etc???

    Well also on that topic, watch out when you cross the road, we are used to looking right and then left....well I can't tell you how many times I almost got run over.

    They don't like Vegemite.

    Remember to tip.

    Dollar bills are a pain the ***.

    Make sure you get on the right plane.

    Yeah that's about all I can give, write em down.

    Remember: Due to the Patriot Act, all foreign nationals must declare any bombs that they are bringing into the country.

    Trust me, they're really sticklers on this.

    Every once in a while in the USA, people will trade portions of Rhode Island in exchange for trinkets and shiny baubles. This practice is totally acceptable. In fact, annexing parts of South Dakota for yourself is generally considered 'badass.'

    Oh yes, that also reminds me, IF you do plan on taking some vegemite goodness, make sure you take the smallest tub (100ml).

    Apparently Vegemite has ingredients that can be used in a bomb (makes you want it more doesn't it) which I found out on my way there (and I had a 110ml tub)
