Friends and family have asked repeatedly – WHY? After trying to explain a few of the reasons in a short period, many, many times. I finally decided I should come up with a thorough long-form explanation, so I can point everyone to “the place”. I will try to explain it all here – why this radical change in my life, and why I am embarking on this foolish adventure. This will also serve as a place to store and document my adventures – you know, the whole sharing thing.
