An Epic Journey

So I've been horrible at this as of late, but I have a really good reason. Honestly.

We were on an epic journey through the mid-south. For roughly twelve days, we were away from home and made our way through twelve states (if you include Minnesota, parts of which I'd not seen or been through before) in that time.

In order of travels: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota.

A very much good time was had, and I managed to document the journey (both on paper in a way and via pictures). I haven't yet had much time to compile the paper stuff (which will be what I use this forum for), but I have gone through the 1,507 photos that were taken during the time and 872 were posted to Flickr. It was quite the undertaking...and it's not done just yet.

I have a lot more work to do on Flickr in regards to the pictures (namely, I'd like to geotag a bunch of them), which should be cool.

At any rate, the work has just begun. I intend to document the daily progress and happenings of the journey here, likely by back-dating posts to the correct date. That should be cool. Combined with a Google Map and the geotagging thing on Flickr, it should be fairly well documented...for the flocks of people that wish to follow in our footsteps.

Donner, party of ten...?

So that's the state of the world. I'm still alive. I promise. And things are going well. I've been able to play with some cool video equipment in the last week or two, and that's been a lot of fun. I look forward to making things available to the public for their consumption as time passes and the facility comes on-line. Should be a good time.

As a random note, this also happens to be post number 500 to the old blog (if you include all of my old news posts I migrated over). So that's pretty cool if you ask me. :)

Until next time...
