It has been a few years since I posted here. Not sure if anyone I care about actually checks this anymore, or if it is only creepers who are looking at some of the shady things I once wrote about?

Here is a list in somewhat chronological order of what the last 5 years of my life have looked like.

  • Bought a business
  • Bought a storefront in the town where I grew up.
  • Did a full rehab on the storefront
  • Moved back to the suburbs of Chicago
  • Built up the business like 10x over 3 years
  • No longer liked the business I was in or my position in it and decided to sell the company.
  • Sold 80% of my business and stayed on as a partner.
  • Paid off House!
  • Had a friend die who was only 38 years old. Maybe a year older than me at this time
  • Decided to move out west.
  • Sold my condo
  • Got Married
  • Bought a new house in Oregon
  • Rehabbed the house in Oregon
  • Tree Fell on the house in Oregon
  • Bought into a few interesting businesses.
  • Moved to Oregon
  • Took up Crabbing and foraging (mushrooms & berries).
  • Sold my share in those interesting businesses
  • Sold/Forced out of the remaining 20% stake in the business and got stuck w/ a 3 year non compete.
  • Started a new company w/ a partner.
  • Bought out partner.
  • Took on a new partner.
  • Felt like a turd and had some self doubt for about 2 years, but did not realize what was going on.
  • Had a handful of other friends and internet buddies die over the years
  • Got back into fishing
  • Removed partner
  • Gotten pretty good at site development
  • Went on a bunch of hikes, but no where near what I should be doing since I live so close to all this natural beauty now.
  • Turned 40 fucking years young and experienced some of the rebellion a body will make when you sit at a desk for 25 years.
  • Finally hit a stride w/ the new business after lots of ups and downs
  • Trying to get some other areas of my life in order.

I wrote this once and wordpress shit itself and I lost the list and post.

The first one was a little bit better and had a better conclusion.

I have lots of hindsight on all of the above things and may make some longer posts about certain parts.

What have you been up to?

“Hello stranger.”
And that’s all the stranger said as we passed in the night, both of us with our hats pulled down and collars pulled up against the cold and damp of the night.
Then, seemingly emanating from the dank mist itself, I heard a distant voice . . almost a whisper . . utter . .
“Until next time”
And I was left to wonder, were we or were we not strangers to one another.
