Tokyo Hiker News

January 9th, 2010

Updating and metamorphosing. From fall, 2007 through spring, 2009, I was stationed at Wupatki National Monument, just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. With only a dial-up internet connection there for three and a half years, this website has languished. Also, during that time, my life has shifted significantly, and now I find myself poised to do one of two things: a) write this paragraph and then let the website languish for three more years, or b) actually reconfigure just what it is I'm wanting to do with a website anyway, and get down to doing it. As I've written on here before, stay tuned! Hopefully it'll still be 2010 when you're reading this, and this won't be the last thing on the page.
