I Think It's Time For A Walkabout

After a great December I still find myself in a big hole for the new year. While I have only given back 25% of last month's profits, it's an unusual situation to be down this deep early in a month.

I also find myself stymied with current daily fantasy options before me. I have been working hard at NBA because that is where the money flows. My results have been fair at best, losing quite a few close games. It seems to come down to 3v3 or even 1v1 every night, thanks to roster duplication (stemming from obvious value).

NHL is pretty much fucked for the rest of the year. The traffic has completely disappeared at high stakes and the tournament prize pools have been shrinking. My research time is better spent on hoops, where a $10 entry can win $1600 as opposed to $300 in hockey.

Faced with spending three months working the sport I like least, I'm considering taking a "walkabout".

Since I'm not an Aboriginal Australian (and I don't want to offend any), I'm using the North American version. It's an interruption of work to go on a nomadic journey, sometimes of a spiritual nature.

I think it might be time for me to see what's out there for a bit.

I have struggled with making some life decisions for a few months. I like my life and I like living in Buffalo. But I also might be sacrificing some great opportunities that lie elsewhere.

There are better places for me to handle my health issues. There are places that would allow me greater sports investing. I'm guessing there are places that would make life more comfortable for me, such as a warmer climate.

I just need to go see for myself. Figure things out.

So I'll probably play a light schedule of fantasy contests while I book my travel. I want to go where the wind takes me for awhile.

More on the subject soon.
