Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...



I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

Remember me?

I've been up in Crestone, Co.  It's sufficiently remote that I had no T-Mobile cell phone service and very limited access to internet via my Verizon Broadband dongle.  I'm now heading west again, but have stopped in Taos to regroup a bit, so I'll do a few posts to catch up.  A few quickees from before Crestone, then I'll try to explain Crestone, which was quite remarkable...
