    Not much gets me down these days. I enjoy the most freedom I've ever had in life, trading all the required safety for it through my freelance career, transient lifestyle, and high tolerance for shenanigans...but every so often I get a grim reminder of the concrete limitations poured upon this wondrously limitless existence.

    UMTJ VI: Why Puerto Vallarta?
    (the newest excerpt from my upcoming book examines just how the hell someone scientifically selects somewhere else on the planet to live.) Coast to Coast Considerations ...This isn’t to say that was the moment I decided that Puerto Vallarta, Mexico would be my new home. In fact, Mexico was one of the last places I considered departing to, in part because of widespread misconceptions about Mexican life perpetrated by American media and Taco Bell.
