The Ole Captain has returned home and will get back into his groove after chasing down some errands and doing a couple chores. Ended up coming up with a ton of new posts and deeper thought pieces, but it was nearly impossible to write while adventuring out west. I wanted to thank Cynical Libertarian and Adam Piggott for covering me and if you haven't already, you may want to check out their sites.
In total I drove over 4,000 miles, hiked over 100, and was gone precisely one month to the day. I cannot recommend randomly wandering through the west enough, and should you retire or be a digital nomad it is something to seriously consider before you die. Anyway, things will finally get back to normal and I'll be thankful to sit in a truck and sleep in my own bed.
