I realize I’ve still been really bad about posting on here, oops. 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. Our poison of choice was a 1994 Volkswagen Golf. 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. I put together a ~15 minute video summing up our time: 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. 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!
