Going off the grid

23 posts in this topic

Well the economic crisis has even hit us low-life hillbillies. Blondie has just recieved notice that due to funding cuts they will be cutting her hours, and the future of the preschool for next year is uncertain at this point. That sunk our budget all to hell and we are now oficially taking in less than we have going out, cuts have to be made, so phone and internet get the axe first. It's been fun here but i have decided that once i get rid of this electronic nightmare, get unplugged from the Matrix, I ain't coming back. I kinda miss life before I got hooked up on this thing anyway. My finishing school just got thrown into the maybe category as well, so looks like the pressure I've been getting from my outlaw bretheren to re-group may have been a prophecy. Anyhow, after next weeks finals are over, we are canceling service so i won't be on-line anymore. See ya'll in the funny papers.

Yeah Bo I know that feeling I just got a call from the state of Pennsylvania telling me that they claim I didn't file state tax return 18 years ago and they want me to pay taxes from 1992...of which I have no records to even determine what it was or how when I filed my federal returns and I always filled them both out the same time. and mailed them at the same time at the same post. Having worked for a hundred companies over the years I don't even know who I worked for way back then. plus the ex-wife also worked and we filed joint returns but they want me to pay the full nut!!! on my Social Security ....yeah right

18 years ago? That should be 11 years past the statute of limitations. At least it would be in Ohio.

You will definitely be missed, sir. Though I too think life was better before all these social networks and forums started sucking time away from what we really should be doing. Fair winds and enjoy the peace and quiet of life off the grid. Sorry that rough times precipitated it and things will get better.

That's too bad Bo.

I do have your address, so I'll try and keep in touch with you that way, though not much of a letter writer.

Just remember, we're the best port in the storm, so if you ever get back on line, come back for a good tot of rum and fun.

I'll miss you Bo. You've got some great insights, and are a great craftsman. I hope this storm passes and things get better for you and you find your way back in your own time.

Cheers.

Best wishes and good luck to you and your family, Bo. Hopefully, the rough times will ease up soon. And, as already suggested, use the library to check in once and a while, to let everyone know how you're doing.

Fair winds.

Well we just went off the grid last week as well, we try to get into land at least once a week but cant guarantee internet access. As for our accomodations we are on a 31 foot sailboat anchored off rowing to and from shore in good pirate fashion.
