Computer Issues – Don’t Panic!

Hello everyone! My laptop refused to boot up this evening when I went to write today’s post (I’m doing this on my phone). It being the weekend (why does stuff always break on the weekend?), I can’t take it in anywhere to get looked at until Monday evening after work and who knows how long […]

Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO

September 17, Saturday The sun is shining upon southern Colorado this morning as Brian and Christie’s heavy-duty truck rumbles down 285 south of Salida. The mountain ranges to the east and west are wrapped in the dark green of conifers and at higher elevations patched with irregular blotches of yellow and orange – aspen groves […]

Taking A Break

The short of the matter is things didn’t work out with with the rescue dog. She’s a good dog, the problem was mine. I feel really awful about the whole situation, and I need a break from the internet for a while to heal. I won’t be responding to comments on this post and will […]

There’s No Forcing Art

Every now and then, I sit in front of the computer to write a blog post, and nothing comes. Sometimes pushing through the resistance works. Sometimes having patience and trying again later works. And sometimes, nothing does. I’ve always viewed blogging as an art form. You can’t force art. If you try, the final product […]

In Class

This post was written on Tuesday, as while you’re reading this I’m on day two of a three day class at the Yellowstone Association Institute in Lamar Valley. There is no cell reception, TV, or even electrical outlets at the rustic cabin I’m staying in so I am quite thoroughly out of touch. It’s one […]

Speaking of Entertainment

Sunday was my birthday, woohoo! As you may have guessed from my last post, I’m more for quiet and simple celebrations so there was no big party. But I did have a good week. On Thursday Julie and I went out and saw a movie in Kerrville – Jupiter Ascending. It had a decent plot […]

Something Old, Something New

For today’s new blog post I present you with… a bunch of old blog posts! Okay, let me explain. It’s come to my attention that I have now been blogging for closing in on three years(!), and I regularly get e-mails and comments from newer members of the IO community asking questions I’ve addressed in […]

Technical Difficulties

Hello all! This little post is just to inform you that my laptop is not working right now, so it might be a bit before regular blog updates continue. I myself am doing just fine, I just have no easy way to get online. Hopefully I’ll be able to get things sorted quickly, in the […]

Status Report

Nothing too blog worthy to report this weekend. I went up to Charleston with Julie to visit friends who I haven’t seen in a year. It’s so lovely to get to travel back to places I’ve been before and catch up with people. Goodbyes can be tough, but when the next Hello comes there’s always […]

Picture Day

I spent all morning typing up a post for today, it was almost done and then Open Office froze and I lost it all and the file wasn’t recoverable, never had that happen before. I don’t have time to type it all up again right now, so I’m declaring today a picture day! Have some […]

Of State Parks, Photos, and Water-closets

This year has been a series of countdowns it seems. And now it’s on again, a little over five weeks until departure for full-timing! There hasn’t been much to write about the past couple days. I’ve been busy with work and helping Julie move and sorting out our shared stuff and the storage locker. Not […]
