After leaving Kingsport, I took up an offer from my friend Wendy to visit in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The drive was spectacular. I have been in a real down mood lately, unable to shake the depression I have been feeling and this drive somehow just snapped me out of it.
I’m thankful and happy to see my friend.
When my website was still known as absolutwade.com, I was asked to do a cross promotion for a company and they hired a large busted model to do the shots.
I mean, out of curiosity, how could you say no?
We rented an RV, We loaded the quad bikes on a trailer to tow behind, we set out on a drive across the country to Yellowstone, Colorado, Utah, etc.
After a few tire blow outs and getting stuck once on a mountain pass in Apsen, Colorado, we managed to get to have some fun on the bikes in Gunnison, CO and then in Yellowstone NP.
Dad bought some new quad bikes for the farm, it was interesting how it made the land feel manageable for the first time as you could easily get anywhere on it. I think mostly he jsut wanted to get some fun bikes we could all play on.
Paula and I just returned from Hawaii, had a great time and some much needed sun. It was a last min trip to Honolulu to stay at Waikiki beach and everything kind of fell into place. A beautiful trip. We went scuba diving and enjoyed a lot of beach time.
Okay, so things kind of exploded at work this week. My director, Philip, quit this week and it’s had the company a bit on edge on strategy going forward. I’d been contemplating on leaving as well and today it looks like that is coming to fruition.
I wish New Media well in their endeavors and the people I worked with over the past two years are very talented, they should do great things in their new direction, I just need to go in another one.
