I'm a little tired.  And, podcasts are just too hard.  I'm going to be talking for about 20 minutes, so that's 20 minutes. But there's about a half-hour of show-prep before that, typing up some notes and figuring out what I'm talking about. And then there's at least a half hour, probably closer to 45 minutes, of copying and pasting code to putz with the feed.

Maybe I'm just reeling a bit from the loss of the Minnov8 podcast, which closed after 400 episodes.

And if I had an income stream, I'd hire out the podcast production, but I think my time is cheaper than that.

So, I'm looking for some feedback on the future of the show.  As you can tell, it's not very regular.  I love doing it, and I have plenty of content to make it weekly, but I'm starting to think that an erratic podcast is worse than none at all.

One good excuse for the delay, though, was a little family getaway.  Highlights:

  • Every-other-year schedule.
  • Western Utah in 2015, then Eastern Utah this year
  • Where to fly?
  • Flying United in leggings
  • Grand Junction
  • Utah Highway 128
  • Arches National Park
  • Canyonlands (Island in the Sky) and Dead Horse State Park
  • View of Castle Valley from I-70
  • Colorado National Monument
  • Flying home
