Counting Down...

It's been a while since I set up this blog, and a few people have commented on the stale stench that greets them when they check in. I had planned to stay up to date and blog my pre-vacation vacation, but when push came to shove I found I needed a break from pushing content to the web. For 10 years I was a web producer; a few weeks has been a blessing.

Which is not to say I haven't been working. I've visited doctors and accountants, thrown out old papers and trinkets, donated books and clothes to charity, filled prescriptions, purchased travel clothing and planned a loose itinerary for my first month in Australia. There's still more packing and moving, more gear to pick up and more friends to see. My departure date is fast approaching and I'm going to be ready when day zero hits -- there's no option at this point. I'm all in.
