For those of you inquiring or wondering, I'm alive and well in SoCal. Here's a photo of me on Jan. 3rd at the Mexican border:
I'm sorry I haven't been updating the blog. Between often not having internet access and/or being with people and not wanting to excuse myself to hunker down over my computer for hours, I've let the blog slide. I still hope to have it up-to-date within the next week or two.
Yesterday I left San Diego heading east. I hope to be in Phoenix by mid-January.
