Well, about 5 minutes ago, I completed the final unfinished conclusion to a mid-book chapter on soil ("Gone With The Wind") and I am about ready to collapse.

Over 70,000 words, dozens of charts, hundreds of references and citations...the Crash Course book draft is out the door.

I want to thank all you for your extreme patience and support as I ducked out to complete this project.  For the record, I completely and effectively missed out on my family's annual two-week vacation (although I was present with them at our usual remote spot), having spent it in a tent in the middle of an island working on the manuscript.  I don't regret the effort - the book needed to get done if we are to reach more people - but my style is to tune everything out when I am 'on task' until things are finished.  I am a bulldog, that way.
