I realize I’ve still been really bad about posting on here, oops. Â I’ll really try to be a bit better. I am envisioning however a change in the site in the (relatively) near-future to a format that I like better. Apologies if you’ve been checking back for updates only to be completely disappointed (haha kidding — I’m not really sure who reads this anyway).
This summer Matt and I went on a huge road trip across the country. In 3 weeks we covered more than 7,000 miles. This translates into lots of seat time. Lots. Â Our poison of choice was a 1994 Volkswagen Golf. Â I found the car on craigslist for a great price, and it was pretty much the exact car I had envisioned for such a trip. Complete with manual windows and locks and only 3 functioning doors, the car had it’s share of “character” — but I would have it no other way.
From haggling for $45 hotel rooms to coyotes and bison, a rodeo, and the loneliest highway in the world; our trip was fantastic. We saw America in a way many people don’t get to. The opportunity was amazing and I had a blast.
It’s hard to condense all that happened into a few paragraphs.Â I put together a ~15 minute video summing up our time:Â http://vimeo.com/13339747 (!CHECK IT OUT!). It’s a combination of photos and video from the trip. It was all shot with the recent Canon T2i camera. Â The video was shot in HD at 1080p. The lens of choice was a Canon 28-135, though a 50mm/1.8 was used at points. If you have any questions or are thinking of a similar trip, I’d love to help you out.
Since coming back, I’ve moved into an apartment and started a job. I’ll really try to be better about keeping this site somewhat up to date!
