#Thanks The inspiration for housing this manuscript entierly within a package came from two sources. First, @rmflight has two blog posts about this concept. First post lays out the idea and the second post details the steps to do it. Second is @cboettig's template package.
For this I have decided to house the manuscript as a vignette, but build the vignette using the @cboettig's Rmd and latex templates.
