Operating as usual

Dear friends,
We are retiring! Thank you for all your patronage, friendship and support over the last 10 years. It is bittersweet and yet feels absolutely wonderful to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
We are outfitting our “new to us” Micro Minnie camper and heading out to enjoy the wilderness and beauty of Maine. And probably taking her across country this fall to our winter home in Sedona AZ.
I am leaving this page up until then if you wish to communicate. Or you can reach me at: [email protected]
We are intentionally doing a data detox as we camp so do not worry if it takes a while for a response.
Please stay healthy and strong during this pandemic and most of all, practice good judgement and be kind!
With love and gratitude,
Emily and George
