Hey Bansil, I've got the perfect solution to your travel dilemma. Buy a half dozen or so little haciendas spread around the country and travel from one to the next. That way both your and your wife's needs can be met. You'll always be heading out from home while your wife will always be heading back home. Three weeks on the road and one at home--just what the doctor ordered! Jack
