Where have you been?

 Where on Earth have you been hiding? That's the question many of you may have been asking about us. Although, likely not. However, I feel like I should give you an update on our status. So here goes.
 The last couple of months have been crazy. Misty and the kids left me in California to head home to Utah while I finished up the project I was working on, you know, the day job. They spent some time trying to get organized and moved into the new house while I did what I had to do in order to finish up so that I could go home. Between moving home and putting in our yard before someone could complain has been our biggest adventure for the last two months. We have tried to remain as active as possible but life has it's way of steering you in different directions. I have tried to stay constant on keeping up with articles, but have only been constantly failing. But a significant development has occurred over the last few weeks. I've come home.
  Yes, I have moved back to Utah with the family and my California experience has ended. Of course, there will be things that I miss about California, but I can't tell you how much I am glad to be home. This country mouse ain't cut out for the big city, y'all. I so still have a lengthy list of places to visit back there though, so I'll be back once in awhile. 
  Being home has brought back the normalcy that we've been missing for the last little bit and I can finally get back to writing our regular stories. These stories will continue to roll out once a week as they have for most of this year because I'm finally going to pull the trigger on doing more YouTube videos. These videos will be in more of a vlog style that will compliment the blog stories. It seems that I'm getting old and reading is an old person's hobby. We also feel that we can share our stories with a larger audience with entertaining videos that are around seven minutes long. At the same time, I plan to release some longer video projects as time goes on that will be a little more cinematic, but we'll see how it goes. As to the regularity of the videos, we'll see. I would like to get to once a week but for right now we may try a video every other week until we can get some type of groove going, plus, I still have a day job. These videos may be a little rough in the beginning but without practice you can't get better at anything.
 I will be finishing our Disney World stories in the next few weeks before getting into the stories about our awesome trip to South Dakota. I look forward to sharing these experiences with all of you. After all, I do this for two main reasons. The first reason is that I like to write and this gives me an outlet that is a little less formal than writing my fiction stories. The other reason is that I like to take you all to these places to help inspire you to get out and find some form of adventure and spend time with your families that isn't sitting around the television. I like to hear that we were able to show someone a place that they lived close to but had no idea that it existed. I like it when someone reads an article and decides to visit a place on their own. That is what makes blogging fun and that is why we'll keep doing it. Thanks, for sticking it out with us and we'll be back next week with a new adventure. By the way, you only have a few weeks of good weather left, so get out there and enjoy it. Unless you're a skier, then you are cheering on winter. I'm not, but I understand. Maybe I'll buy snowmobiles or something to enjoy the winters more. You never know.
