So, it has been a while. I have even gone and promised more content at times in the past, but that never really seems to work out. Reality is that there have been some barriers. Nothing serious, but annoying enough that I have not been posting like I wanted.
The first barrier that I will discuss is my place of employment. Our company was purchased by another entity a while ago and I have been doing everything that I could to NOT get wrapped up in anything but self preservation. It is stressful. The changes, being demoted because our department was absorbed by a different group, etc., are just a bit of a motivation killer.
My activities are also getting in the way of me being able to post. First my adventure bike broke and I have not been able to get it working again. I used it a lot to ride up to the hills and goof off. It is quick and easy to hop on and just take off. Without the adventure bike I was stuck with only my 4×4. As you have read that broke down as well, thus leaving me without a woodsbumming vehicle. Since I quit running up in the hills so much I picked up some hobbies that are not illegal where I live, per se, but they are not really legal either. It isn’t anything bad, but I started dabbling with distillation and making spirits. This includes essential oils and ETOH based items. Add to this whole mess the fact that I picked up a boat, got my old Shovelhead running and bought a newer Harley…. Yup, I have not been doing much posting online.
Next is the huge barrier to doing the posts that I want to make. Just recently I picked up a GoPro. The videos that I have made are great, but need some serious editing help. Of course that means more time on the computer and learning new software. Wrap that into my first excuse and then it becomes clear. I am severely burned out with regard to computer based activities.
I am hoping to be able to get back into the swing of things. There are a lot of subjects that I have become quite passionate about that are a little different than my other content. Hopefully, I can find a way to incorporate those new activities into the flow here.
I am off to start another project. Not sure I can include it, but I know when I start fixing my old bikes this weekend that some of that will be relevant.
