I currently Skype with my favourite cousin who is stationed in Afghanistan. As for the number of miles, I think it is around 8000. We get great reception and it is so great to keep in touch with him by more than just emails.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I don’t Skpe but my Great Aunt does :-) I’d like to Enter for her.

Auntie is in her 70′s and is just getting familur with the computer. She Skype’s about once a week with My cousin (her grand daughter) and her Daughter (Gr.Grand Daughter) all the way over in Norway!! It’s a great way for them to stay connected :-) We were lucky enough to have her home a few weeks ago but not for a good reason Uncle (her Bumpy) Passed away. With Auntie in the house all by herself now I think this would help her alot in getting more time in with them and getting over her Loss! Thanks! Sorry I don’t know the Milage except it’s really really really far away!! lol We are in Boston, Ma!
Thanks

If/when I get it, I would call my friends in Australia…
