Vague Destinations

I left off in may last post, leaving Tucson on our way to Las Vegas. The thing with this trip, along with many others, we’ve learned not to get bogged down in the details.

I have much to do and much to learn, that much is certain. So, I’d like to embark on an experiment. As an engineer by training, this seems the most logical first step to understand and improve. I invite you to participate and am hopeful that you will invite others to as well. Continue reading Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams
