Going On Vacation

By - July 14, 2006

Empty Mail Box

I very rarely, if ever, take a day where I don’t check email, my feeds, or work.

That is going to change this coming week, starting Saturday morning. I’ve cleared out my email, and set the autoresponders.

For one week, I intend to not answer email. I will not post on the site. I will not answer phone calls.

I will be in the mountains, away from cel coverage, with my three kids and my extraordinary wife. We will be singing silly campfire songs and playing a lot of frisbee golf. Much wine will be consumed. Much hiking and yoga and fishing will ensue. And I for one can’t wait.

Melanie will hold down the fort while I am gone, and for that I am thankful. Onward, to the Lair of the Bear.

  2. Good on you. I recently took a similar e-less vacation, and it was a great break. Of course, I then had to wade through an e-snowdrift when I got back, but…

    Sounds wonderful. I need to take a chapter from you on vacations.

    Just watch out for “leaves of three” especially after consuming much wine ;)

  8. Now if you can only find a way for us all to monetize your foot trafic through the woods…….

    Have a great trip!

  9. I just got back from a trip to Michigan and Indiana. It was the most inspiring vacation for me ever. I guess it was because I finished The Search on the way back, pun intended.
