    So many times when we’ve been traveling, I have said to my husband, “Well, I could do MY job from here.” It’s so interesting to get an inside peek at someone who actually took the leap and is really doing it.

    Thanks for sharing your insights here Erik. In some ways, it seems that–no matter where you are operating from–doing good science journalism is challenging and daunting, but ultimately rewarding.
