So I have a solid two months of free-lance work lined up, which settles the “Tom needs to have a job before he starts blogging regularly again” issue. With any luck those two months can turn into a permanent gig, or as permanent as it gets these days.

Without naming names I can say the gigs are with people who contacted me primarily because of what they’ve read at Two-Heel Drive (I’d have thought the site proved only that I was beyond-the-pale geeky, but apparently I was inadvertently advertising marketable skills. Who knew?)

A fellow hiking blogger who also calls Carolina home has suggested a get-together; that also would give me an excuse to commit some blogging.

So, as the old guy in Monty Python and the Holy Grail said: I’m not dead!
