    I like that you’re asking this immediately before Leaguefest. 🙂Report

    Fun post. Thanks. We are actually in process of building a marketplace for professional adventures aka working sabbaticals. Will be in beta in a month or so. Would be great to hear about your thoughts on that! 😉Report

  3. Awesome.

    If I were you, knowing your interests, I would go visit a whole bunch of important Revolutionary War sites. Oddly enough, I heard a rumor that one of your friends lives within an hour of most of ’em.Report

    • Mark,

      I do know someone who lives up that way. Unfortunately the same funding problems that will leave me stuck in Louisville for Leaguefest will also leave me here during my sabbatical. As a consolation I will spend some time staring at our new kitchen floor and trying to convince myself it was a good trade-off.Report

    I’m a big fan of “down time”. I can spend an entire weekend doing the following:

    Watching old movies
    Cooking in the kitchen making things
    Sleeping in
    Playing on the computer

    I don’t see anyone and don’t talk to anyone. It’s fun about once a month.

    On a longer time period I’d probably go take care of some linger “bucket list” things I’d like to do: Hike the Zion Narrows for example.Report
