Future Plans (Spring 2014 on)

  (From my FaceBook page ("About me") where I'm working out all the details).

  With a background in geology, biology, philosophy and fine arts I have finally lost my taste for modern civilization along with having no family obligations since my son is on his way with his career in computer graphics. So, for a year now, I have been planning to become "homeless by choice" or maybe "running away as an adult" in the late spring/early summer of 2014 and exploring the range of the Ohio and…
