As some of you may have noticed, there has not been a new post on the blog for four months. Up until July, I had given myself the goal of adding at least four posts per month. I think I got two done in July but nothing has been posted since the 5th of July. So what happened? I had two book manuscripts (more on those in the near future) pending and time simply was too short to continue posting things on the site. I tried to keep up with the Facebook page, but even that got neglected after a while. Most of July and August was spent out in the field finishing up the research necessary for the books and September was a blur completing the manuscripts. The first was due at the beginning of October and the second was due two weeks later. Once both manuscripts were submitted, my dad and I took a roadtrip out to Dallas, TX. It was a mix of business and pleasure and a great trip. So, even though the editing process has commenced for the manuscripts, I now have time to resume the blog, if anyone still cares to read it. I hope to have a more substantive post up by the end of the day.
Just for fun, here are a few images I took from the roadtrip to Texas. These aren’t particularly great and they were all taken from the side of the road, but it sure is a testimony to how spectacular driving through the western U.S. is.
