We’re Johnny and Jenn, a couple of hardcore IT geeks; the hairy, furry toothed sort that speak in TLA’s (three letter acronyms), can’t explain anything without drawing a diagram and walk around the office barefoot. After a combined 24 years in the field, we got fed up with cubical life and started plotting our escape.
For more than nine months, we applied the sort of intense research and out of the box thinking that is only normally seen at 3AM when the coffee and Mountain Dew are flowing and the project is due tomorrow, but seriously in need of a complete rewrite. All of that research and preparation paid off with… well… you see, we live in the back of a pickup truck. It is a large truck. For a pickup truck, I mean.
Anyhow, that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is that we got out. Now, we’re roaming around outdoors (that’s the big blue room for those of you still inside) and seeing what else life has to offer. We’re going to places where they’ve never heard of the Internet along with places that have heard of it, but think it’s something you fish with.
So, if you want to see what it’s like in the big blue room, come right on in. The beer is cold, the campfire smoke will get in your eyes and the pay is lousy.
