    I certainly have been MIA. Moved out to Oregon for a short while, then up to Alaska last summer to volunteer on an organic farm and then worked at a wilderness lodge for the second half of the summer. Living in Bozeman, MT, playing in and exploring the mountains.
  6. So that is what you have been doing?
