I’ve been off-grid and camping since early May, with just a few nights here and there under a “real” roof. As in a roof with a building under it.
I like my roof more, to be honest. It’s big and has a moon and stars.
Which means jamming all I can for tasks that need to be done—like site implementation, business cards, and promised pieces and images on gear for various folks—into those few days when I have consistent cell service and can sit down at a computer.
When I get out on the road, tweaking basecamp setups, testing gear, and talking to folks, last thing I think about is sitting down at a computer.
I need to work on that and discipline myself to dedicate part of every day, or several hours every week, to taking care of biz.
Or there won’t be any biz to take care of, right?
One of the things I managed to accomplish was getting some business cards together. Lot of lost opportunity in not having material to give folks when they come to check out my gear and ask “You have a card?”
These are simple temp cards of a sort, wonderful to use until I get a proper Roaddude logo. There’s another thing needs doing.
Got these cards from MOO and couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve used MOO in the past for projects and have always found them easy to use, efficient, and responsive to needs. Quick to ship, too.
They’re not a sponsor. I don’t have sponsors. Maybe someday. Using this MOO link, though, will get you 20-25% off your first order and give me some credit towards my next. MOO’s just a company I think worth checking out who have always treated me well.
Now to get to other stuff that needs doing, like images of my awesome XV-2 for @xventuretrailers, info for @nb_expeditions on their cool GARB, photos of my preferred firepit for @summitexpotrailers and my amazing canoe for @hornbeckboats, and a number of replies to write, about everything from #trailguardian to the #roaddudefoodcookbook. Oh, there’s more, too.
It’s all coming, promise.
I need an assistant.
