Well, I'm over in Florida for three months receiving proton therapy treatment that isn't available in the UK. What a culture shock! You can't seem to do anything here without a car - even the cash point machines are drive-through!
As I'm here for so long, I'm going to search for some GI Joe figures or any other 1/6th figures I can find. I think my son would love one on my return to the UK!
Not missing the cold weather back home - nice and sunny here! lol!

Probably a good time to be in Florida as it will start getting really hot around the month of June...
I hope the proton treatments go well and hope you find a Gi joe or similar 1/6th figure for
your son...

I wish you a speedy recovery Pete, Make sure to look for flea markets and antique malls that is probably your best bet for vintage stuff. Also checking local Craigslist ads might help as well. It may be easier for you to mail a few figures home to yourself than bringing them back in your luggage.

Hi guys! Does anyone know the average price for 1990's GI Joe figures at flea markets? Found some today but the woman was asking $10 each! I know I can get 1990's Action Man figures back in the UK for a small fraction of that price!

Just to give you guys an update - I'm still in Florida, now more than halfway through my treatment.  20 radiotherapy doses and three proton beam therapy treatments done, eighteen more to go.  No major side effects to report.
Been exploring a bit while I'm here.  Found a flee market and bought five 1990's GI Joes and one Max Steel with the double jointed arms and legs.  Four and half weeks to go so time to find some more 1/6th bits and pieces. Once I fly home towards the end of April I'll have just over a month to convince my wife to let me go to Action Man Day 5!
