Hah, everything got so fast at the end I forgot to mention one minor detail here: I moved to Alaska.
On May 8th, 2007 I packed up everything that would fit in my RAV4 and left Louisville, Kentucky and drove to Alaska (yes, Alaska).
If you'd like to read about my adventures in getting to Alaska, finding a (temporary?) home, and now living here, you can find my story at a new web site I've named One Man's Alaska, in honor of Dick Proenneke's One Man's Wilderness.
After a little more R&R I plan to be back here, giving the site a much-needed facelift, adding a ton of new tutorials, resources, etc.
