My next adventure begins...

I'm all for being aware of your surroundings, but this is just a little too much information. Which leads me into my new post. I will be traveling with my brother Tim to Yosemite National Park on Wednesday. We plan to hike Half Dome and venture around the park before heading into San Fransisco for the weekend. Should be a lot of fun, and the good news is you get to come along! Ain't cyberspace great. We have started a new blog so we might share this great adventure.

The new blog is called "Nut and Chocolate" and follows are trip through photography and video. I invite you to follow along! Check it out here: Nut and Chocolate

Scary moments in my life - Part 1

So you think traveling the world is dangerous...

"First Time"
This is Mason, my new driver in the family. He is on the main road for the first time in his life. I don't remember much detail from my younger days, but I do remember the first highway drive (in Tennessee even) .

"His view"
Is it just me or does this look like some sort of video game? I can only imagine what something simple like "approaching traffic" feels like the first time "approaching traffic." There is a certain level of "I think I am going to die" when sitting beside the 15 year old with a learners permit. I mean, one day they are sitting on the couch and the next day they are sitting behind the wheel.
Scary stuff.

"Jedi Knight Driving Method"
So I told Mason, if you really want to be a good driver you have to use the force - you have to feel it. He knew immediately what I meant and drove the next ten minutes with his eyes closed. I thought it was cool, but apparently the people next to us thought it was dangerous - whimps!
