I’m writing just to give you a little heads up that we will be taking a short break from publishing while I drive up to Oregon with my boys to view the eclipse. As a young boy I was fascinated with astronomy and the astronauts and at an age younger than Mini-Shred is now I vowed that one day I would travel to see a total eclipse of the sun. That day is finally here and I have the good fortune to be able to take my young sons for what is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Builder Mark DiNucci has offered to let us hang with him and some friends at a spot in the woods an hour or so north of Bend, Ore. I’ve got a big tent, hot dogs and a five-gallon bucket. Oh, and growler of Pliny the Elder. I think we’re covered.
I’ve been going non-stop for far too long, working on side projects (be sure to pick up Issue 200 of Dirt Rag for my interview with Gary Fisher—on newsstands now) even as I maintain my usual pace here at RKP and I’m due for a break. It’s also true that if I have to post from the outback while watching after my boys I’ll lose my mind.
Depending on traffic (!), things should be back to normal on Wednesday.
