Changes in Latitudes

Ooh... nothing like a vague story in the local paper to gin up the rumor mill!  Well then, I guess this would be a good time for an update.  It's really quite simple... In January, Charli and I are going to Connecticut for 3 months to house sit for some people we've never met before.  There, that should clear things up.

What's that... not really?

Alright, if you really must pry (we must, we must!)

Here's the scoop. Because my job allows for me to work remotely, I have the freedom to basically work from anywhere there is an internet connection. AND, because all our kids are gone, Charli and I have decided to put our house up for sale and travel for awhile. However, simply traveling around and living in hotels is expensive, so we decided to take advantage of a little thing called house sitting. This is where you can live in a person's house and take care of their pets etc while they travel. No money is exchanged either way and it's a win/win for both parties. So, after signing up on a few house sitting web sites, we met a great couple in CT who will be gone from Jan - Mar and we will be taking care of their dogs and birds while they are away.

But... but... but?

I know, you still have questions. What will you do after that? Where will you live?  What is the easiest way to reduce your 401(k) fiduciary risk?  The truth is, we don't know.  We're just going to do this one gig at a time and see where it leads us.  Right now our plan is to spend Christmas in Vegas with our kids, then turn our car around and head to CT for the winter. After that, thanks to the miracle of social media, you'll know when we do.

In the meantime, we'll be here until Dec 13, so make sure to join us at DB Searles tomorrow night (Sat, Nov 15 from 8-midnight) for a huge party to celebrate an epic 20 years of The Receders.  I'll also be at the Pioneer Place with Grant F. Haake on Nov 21 for his awesome George Harrison tribute, as well as back at the Veranda one last time on Dec 12 with The Acoustics of Nelson/Lee. 

Right now our house still has not sold, but we do have some interested parties. However if it doesn't sell before we leave, we'll likely be back in April to try again.

There... that's all I got.  You now know everything we do. See ya around!
