Vacation Time. Yippee!

June 19, 2008

Dear all,

I’m going off the grid.  Heading for the hills. Off to one of the last corners of the lower 48 thoroughly untouched by modern communications — no cell phone, no regular phone, no internet, no newspaper delivery, nada.

I may sneak a short post in once or twice on our treks into “town” (a little grand for the destination in question, though I suppose the belated emergence of not one but two places that will sell you an espresso if you ask for it nicely does suggest creeping metropolization).  But basically, I’m outta here for a week.

See you then, refreshed.
