Brief DaedTech Hiatus Because I’m Attempting a Vacation

Hello DaedTech readers.  I’m typing this on a Monday night, which is usually when I’d be prepping a reader question post draft.  I don’t have one of those.  I do have a half-done developer to consultant post, but I’m not going to be prepping that either.

Instead, I’m just going on vacation.

If you read my digest posts, particularly the recent ones, you might think that my life is sort of one giant vacation.  In a sense this is true.  Being location independent gives us the freedom to go pretty much anywhere.  And we capitalize on that.

However, owning businesses, especially young, bootstrapped ones, has an implication of its own.  It means that, no matter where you go, you’re always at least kind of working.  So, while my workload has varied considerably and we have schedule flexibility, it’s been probably 14 months since I’ve taken more than 3 or so days off in a row.

Our goal is to break that streak over the next couple of weeks.  We’ll see if that actually happens, but we’re going to do our best.

As a result, look for DaedTech to be pretty quiet over the next couple of weeks — probably just digest posts, if that.  But, if you really find yourself craving DaedTech posts, you can always give me a follow on Twitter, because I’ll queue up a couple of from the archives tweets per day.

So have a good couple of weeks, and look for me to fire it back up after Memorial Day weekend.

We’re driving back to the midwest from San Diego, so we decided to make an event/vacation of it. We’re stopping for several days each in Napa Valley, Oregon, the mountains of Montana, and Mt. Rushmore/Black Hills.

Nice! It was a bit nosy of me to ask, but I always like hearing people’s travel stories and living vicariously. Have a great time!
