FINALLY!…. only took 2.5 years


This morning we went down to the KVR (beuraeu for foreigners) with paperwork and my Deutsch Test results in hand. Our lady there, looked over the paperwork and said that she’d make the proper notations in my computer files and give me my long-term freelance work permit. Woohoo! I don’t have to go back again till 2010. At that point, we can apply for a permanent version of the same thing.

That means, if you want to hire me to do anything freelance, I’m free to do it. If I get the chance to get a “real” job with contract, she said to just come in and she’d deal with it then.

I’m about to head out for the first ride that I’ve been up to in a week and I’m doing various home projects today.

I’ve also started this page for what will become the European version of Big Wheel Racing. You can follow developments of the European team there in the coming months and you can sign up for email direct to your computer just like on this blog. Anyway, let me know what you think about it.

What does one say here. Hmmm. First, I'm a "trailing spouse". Kera, my wife, works hard and keeps us afloat. I work... not nearly as hard and contribute enough to let us have fun. Oh, I also make bags for bikepacking under the name of SpoK Werks I'm an English Teacher (English as a Second Language) here in Germany. It's an amazingly rewarding thing to do. I'd never have believed it until I'd tried it. I also make bikepacking bags under the name SpoK Bags. Just search for us in Flickr. We're adventure nuts (i.e. cycling, travel, life, friends, etc.). We attempt to live each day as fully as we can manage.

  1. Congtatz ! I went in last week and got an extention on mine. I go in with the wife in tow sometime after the end of March for an ‘Interview’ but it looks like my next stamp will be a 10-year version.

    Here’s to going native !
