That will be January 1st, 2023 and we will extricate ourselves from the system we’ve put ourselves in. Now don’t get me wrong we aren’t completely dropping out at all. Nope, we’re just going to stop doing the kind of work we do now and living the kind of way…

Good News, Bad News, a Scamp, or a Bus

Well, first off it’s been way to long and don’t forget about the video at the end of the article. We’ve wondered how you’re doing? What you’re doing? What’s happening in your life?
