Hello Chroniclers!

Happy Nauryz!


A (non) traditional yurt, with all the fixin’s!


I’m coming to you live from Tengiz, Kazakhstan from a man camp in the middle of nowhere. Me and 2000 others in the camp are celebrating the Nomad’s New Year. Kazakhstan loves New Year’s so much they celebrate it a second time! They’ll have special meals on while we’re here and several other treats for us.

It’s been a while, and boy do we have a lot to catch up on. A lot has changed in a year! First off, a move… a new change in roles… and a new addition! In due time, I will try to catch up on all of these things…

In the meantime, greetings from Kazakhstan, Texas!

Hope you’re doing well!

Derek, Libby, Duke, and…
