I think you need to start considering making the Matt Tour 2002! t-shirts, and selling them at all your stops.
I'd consider buying one. :)

I'd be willing to do it
but in order to list all my tour stops, I'd likely need to sell tour shirts with tails.
I believe it would be easer to write
"Have Laptop, Will Travel"
How do you find all the travelling, in-and-of itself? I mean, of course you miss LL when you're on the road, but how is the travelling itself, and the constant shifting. You spend more time on the road than any of my other frds (my brother used to, but he gave it up when his son was born).
When all is said and done, I lead a very minimalist lifestyle and I can always make myself be happy anwhere that I am. I like to travel, I like to fly, I like the consulting lifestyle. I'm fairly independent from the concept of having to be somewhere. I can sleep at a Motel 6, or a Hilton, and it makes little difference to me. I can eat at Dennys or Ruths Chris and it makes little difference to me. I can fly first class or coach and it makes little difference to me. I live as I can afford and to the standard I am given- I prefer (the nice) things in life, but I don't expect them. I (simply) enjoy them.
There are things that I wish I had more of, like close friends other than LL who I could trust. I don't think that travel is necessarily a barrier to that but there is no-one in my life who really understands it- most people can only deal with what is right in front of their face. At any given time, I'm usually not just *here*, but also dealing with everything I deal with *there*. I'm thinking globally, thinking about the system of my life, not the circumstance. Most people confuse wants and needs, requests and demands. My sadness is that so few people can even begin to relate to that, let alone consent to live like that.
