I'm SQL DBA working in [[Nashville]], [[Tennessee]] - a recent move from my childhood home of [[Chattanooga]].

I'm a traveller at heart with nothing in my wallet.  In fact, my wallet has gotten a bit inverted over the years, but this next year has me paying off all my bills.
 
  
I've seen a good bit of the [[United States]], bits of [[Europe]] ([[Germany]], [[Switzerland]], [[Austria]]), [[Sydney]] in [[Australia]], and travelled about [[New Zealand]].  See my [http://www.43places.com/person/ilkirk 43 Places] for those details.
 
  
I can't wait to get back to [[New Zealand]] and quite specifically, [[Dunedin]].  I started doing my immigration homework as soon as I got back home.  I'm toying with my next iterniary [[User:Ilkirk/NZTrip | here.]]
 
  
However, I '''have''' been taken over by this sick obsession of lurking on WikiTravel for hours at a time.  Most most significant contribution is to my hometown page.
