New year, new ideas for a questionnaire… I left out material from the previous as that has been covered and will leave it open ended with “Other Stuff” at the end. It is just to see what makes you tick. It is a bit long for thoroughness so shorten it if you want. So…

Nobody will see me in a casket on display.
Except if I have an accident, nobody will see me die.
If I can help it, and I know the time is near, I will go deep into the woods where nobody will see my carcass. And give myself to nature on my terms. There will be no markers, no tombs for Rod. Just my work and what I have done which hopefully will last a while.
