Son of Voxmobile
"Why do you go away? So that you can come back.
So that you can see the place you came from with
new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you
 differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not
the same thing as never  leaving.
Terry Pratchett "A Hat Full Of Sky"

"Karen Saltus is taking the portable voiceover studio concept to a whole new level. Most people should not even attempt to do what she is doing. However, because Karen is genuinely concerned about providing the best audio possible and doing whatever it takes (including sparing no expense) to ensure that she can deliver a great product; you’ve got to admire her for figuring out a viable way to live the adventurous life she wants to live and still deliver great sounding audio to her clients.
