    It’s been a slow downward spiral, of lost battles and lost trials since my injury. I’ve tried and I will keep trying but when you're between the devil and the deep blue sea at the end of the rope… let go…

    I do not know where I will land. I have mediocre plans of mediocre wishes and mediocre dreams but the chaos winds of fate and destiny now blow hither and yon.

    I will disappear for a period, while I re-configure, re-arrange, and re-adapt.

    I have put the house up for sale and it will probably sell quickly. I’m not up-side down and it looks like we will get a decent cut.

    Then, we split the proceeds and she goes her way and I go mine, amicably.

    I have a temporary place and a mediocre plan as I said before but long term is still an issue without any employment.

    The Free Bird Project (ooh clever... :unamused:) :

    Buy an RV:

    24-28ft Class-C type (just me and my cat) and make it as boondock off the grid as possible, deep-cycle batteries, solar panels, wind-generator, etc…

    Sell the Buick:

    Well, I just can’t tool around in my 28 foot Winnebago whenever I want to pop over to Church’s Chicken for a Spicy Chicken Sandwich. That would be a tad cumbersome, so I’ll sell the Buick and...

    Buy a cycle and sidecar:

    Because they’re as fucking cool as Barbarella’s space titties.

    I don’t quite trust my leg to hold the full weight of a bike if it needs to. I’m missing ligaments and stuff that keep it aligned and there is like 13 screws in an area the size of a softball that holds my knee together and 8 to 10 in the plate in my tibia. I used to be a maintenance supervisor so I know how a loss of material in one spot can be weak, even though it’s been repaired well… so sidecar it is (Trikes are just too damn expensive too be that cool). Slap a cycle trailer on the RV or even look into a Toy Hauler, but I want the space really for F.T. living.

    I’ll try and stay in the area and try and make it here via working for someone else or try my hand at some street performance at Fremont Street (I’ll fuck you up Spiderman, & stay off my corner too Cosplay Anime Break-dancing boy/girl!) and fight over tricks like 10 dollar whores. I have ideas… most are sun baked & frazzle-fried but whatever. I’m not down to pan handling just yet…

    I’ll pop in and out sometime between then and now and here and there until The Coming of The Great Disconnect; The Dread Day of Unplugging occurs.

    Laterz…

    “...and the earth becomes my throne,
    I adapt to the unknown,
    Under wandering stars I've grown,
    By myself but not alone,

    I ask no one!

    ...and my ties are severed clean,
    The less I have the more I gain,
    Off the beaten path I reign,

    Rover, wanderer,
    Nomad, vagabond,
    Call me what you will…”

    I can't say I know what its like to go through what you're going through, but hopefully with big changes comes big new things and opportunities.
