Life after fundraising
So as Amazon probably informed you my project was funded on Friday. Thanks so much to all 105 backers - you guys are great. Now it's my turn to make good on my rewards/agenda.
I'll be setting out around June 25, so updates and other info will start coming your way more frequently then. In the meantime I'll be refining details and working some other jobs to help supplement the Kickstarter funds.
This update is really just to express how grateful I am to have this opportunity and how much I appreciate everyone pitching in.
Follow me @re_ari on Twitter if you want ... still stumbling through the whole tweeting notion, but hopefully will get a grip on it as the summer progresses.
I get my thumb cast off on Tuesday so I can finally take advantage of the pretty central Texas spring before it gets too hot.
