Wow, where to start.
Well, I'll open by saying that these past couple of years have been some of the most trying of my life, and consequently, my wife TK's.
We've had a rough road of it, close to calling it quits a number of times and we have arrived at a "jumping off" point, both literally and figuratively.
(initial plan, subject to changes and TONS of additions as we go)
Indeed, TK and I are liquidating many of our belongings, putting a fair share in storage, and taking the rest on a several month, cross country tour that is likely to last into November.
I have seen 49 of 50 states (damned Alaska on the other side of Canada!), and I want to share that experience with TK, stopping to give clinics and lessons all along the way in order to finance our travel, making like Mr and Mrs Johnny Kiteseed all across the US... Frankly, we need to fill our cups and leap out into the universe together so that we might drink of those cups into a ripe old age.
Some will say "are you nuts??", some will revel in our decision... But truly, it's the right one for us at this point in our lives.
Loose plan is to have most everything cleared out in 4 weeks, on the road 2 weeks after that (around Apr 26).
KiteLife continues, kiting activity continues, except I hope to share many more adventures with you all as we go.
