Mike Sliwa has been a part of CactusPix for about eleven years, and has been a major influence in the direction that we have taken with this company. Although we are not departing ways, thank goodness, he is and his lovely wife Karen are about to make an interesting and unique journey. We have also found a way to tie this adventure in with CactusPIx, but that’s another future topic. Now, read about his new direction and learn from his blog entry below…
Mike and Karen’s Excellent Adventure – Guy McPhersons blog
We are retiring so we can travel. That’s the official story we generally tell people if we don’t feel like explaining the whole collapse of civilization spiel. Our close friends and those sympathetic to what we’re trying to accomplish get the real story. We know this might be considered to be the easy way out by some but we honestly don’t care at this point. We are leaving our high school teaching careers at the end of the school year to become WWOOFers. World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms is the route that best suits our current needs. Those needs are simply to learn self-sufficiency and sustainability. By working on different farms and homesteads throughout the world we hope to learn some valuable skills and enrich our lives by entering the world of farmers and experiencing the lives of these pioneering people.
