I am a person with a high need for socialization. Throughout my life, I have strongly sought to be around people.
Our kids provide that socialization in spades. I find that I need only ten percent of the outside socialization I needed previous to having kids. And when I got married, I needed only half the socialization I needed prior to that.… read more “Socialization needs with children”
-Production goods and services come from labor. Without a few great business geniuses and their massive investments, we would not have nearly the amount of high quality goods and services we do today. Example: the tech for engines existed for decades until Henry Ford perfected the automobile and massively scaled up production.

America’s regulatory framework today consists of government agencies that are very inefficient and slow, because they have no accountability to anyone.
If we got rid of all of the regulatory agencies and shifted that work to the courts, we would see much better outcomes with higher efficiency.

My family and I slept in it the first night in our driveway to test it out and had fun.… read more “First Fifth Wheel Road Trip”
The gravel road to the Guler ice caves is blocked by a downed tree. It clearly has been there awhile. The park service was founded with the ideal of making these parks accessible recreation areas for all Americans. Every organization starts with a mission, turns into a business, then becomes a racket. The parks service employees now work hard to close off access to Americans by shutting down roads and travels officially, and by stopping maintenance unofficially.… read more “National Parks Service”
I highly recommend “Edison as I know him” by Henry Ford.
I became convinced a few months ago that buying a fifth wheel camper trailer was the way to go. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and am currently on our first trip. I am not so sure it was a good decision. This post will analyze it a bit further.
I spent a lot of time on RV trader and craigslist and built a spreadsheet of 37 options.… read more “Buying a newish fifth wheel camper trailer: is it worth it?”
