The ritual of spending a few minutes posting on this blog, or often, much more time in front of the computer each morning, is coming to an end. It's been almost exactly 5 years since this electronic journal began, and I've accomplished what I set out to do. The documentation of our travels, the home improvement projects, the time behind the badge, and glimpses into our daily experiences, has given our kids a multi year window into our lives. That was my primary motivation when this all began, and with the yearly publication of a book, our 3 boys and grand child now have a written, pictorial record, that will stand the test of time.
Thanks to all who have followed our sometimes crazy lifestyle. This decision has been in the works for sometime now, and it wasn't taken lightly. Going back to a part time job these past few weeks, punching an early morning time clock, has brought this subject back to the forefront. So, with some regret, the daily posts have come to an end. I'm certain there will be occasional updates, particularly when we're back in the motor home, or when some other event is noteworthy, but for now.......it's adios.
