Larson said, “I don’t know, I mean it’s just so far away. I definitely want to go to Australia, you see there’s a lot to work out there. I don’t want to go with anybody else…it just takes a lot of money to go there and organizing with logistics and stuff. I don’t know many people down there…kinda like I said it takes support financially and just everything to kind of make it all work.”
