ICYMI: I’m still alive, but I’ve sure been staying pretty busy offline during this so called off-season. You see, I’ve transitioned to some kind of seasonal lifestyle after the summer up in Alaska 2016. I have enjoyed a winter of not working, but filling my time with other great stuff.. Like for example a couple months in WA and a trip back home to visit family and friends. Pretty great if you ask me!
