Homeward Bound

Somewhere, forty-thousand feet above the Pacific Ocean, Chris is quietly looking back on the past three years of his life, and preparing for the future. He will miss working at PTFI, the most challenging and rewarding job of his career. But, his feet are faced forward as he prepares to tackle new projects and responsibilities. No matter what the future holds, he will always have the bragging rights of having lived and worked in Tembagapura!

This is not a final goodbye for Chris, just a “See ya later!” His itinerary to return home included the 6:20am chopper flight to Timika, which was/is followed by a string of connecting flights from Timika to Bali, Bali to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to L.A., and L.A. to Salt Lake City. After arriving in Salt Lake, Chris will rent a car and drive it to Idaho Falls, so he can pick up his Jeep Wrangler and drive it home. Safe travels, Ba Pak!

    I had the pleasure of waving to Chris from across the room at his going away party at the Lupe. We wish you all well, and Todd looks forward to getting Chris’s computer to work!

    Hi Connie! I looked through your blog this morning. It looks like you are quickly figuring things out and settling in! It’s always an adventure, which I miss! By now, you’ve probably started planning your first vacation destination. Where are you headed?
