“Landon and Kasey are Alive and Well. We were just pondering the new trend of living off the grid… Ya know hiking, traveling, doing our own photographic and video series about nature and the changes in habitats of different species we have been studying together. With the ability to have Satellite internet, schooling for children can go where ever we go…. It was just a concept we considered. We are safe with family right here in Texas…Landon and I will be posting soon the species of insects not native to Texas that have been identifying. Thank you all for your support and concern.”
