I've been away from - well - everything music related for a few years.
I went looking for RR to see how things were chugging along there and ended up here. I was immediately confronted with Brandon's goodbye post. While that bummed me out, I was was glad to see a lot of familiar names in the subsequent thread. Also glad to see that he was focusing on moving his own life to the next level.
So now I'm back. I left my 60 hour/week job. Sold 99% of my gear. Moved to a different country. Had a kid. Got married. Bought a house.
The music and recording bug never left. It just took a vacation. Now I'm doing some freelance voiceover work. Doing a bit of the stay at home dad thing, playing in a band and rebuilding my gear pile.
What a long strange trip it's been.
I look forward to reading through this forum and catching up on things I might have missed.
EDIT: I might have already moved and started this particular intercontinental adventure before I faded out from RR... I honestly can't remember. It was about 4 years ago. Given my inability to remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, y'all will have to forgive me for screwing up the timeline of events
