Albuquerque New Mexico

We landed late last night. I chose to sleep in and catch up on sleep. I changed my mind about going to the Petroglyph National Park and headed instead to the Standard Diner followed by a movie for ONLY $5.15!!! Logan was pretty good but maybe a little underwhelming.

Coffee afterwards to wait out the rain and found an awesome shop called Espresso Fino!

Scandinavian Airlines Sells 2 Highly Coveted London Heathrow Slots to Unnamed Carrier

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has sold two pairs of London Heathrow slots to an undisclosed buyer, raising $75 million from the transaction.

Before the sale, SAS had the sixth largest Heathrow slot portfolio with 19 daily slot pairs. This has now been narrowed to 17 pairs, although under the deal SAS can continue to use the two pairs for up to three years.

Let's the rumors swirl. I'm crossing my fingers for this one. Emphasis are my own.

Day Sleep and Lunch with Matt

Arriving early AM, I uploaded the last two videos from the weekend then slept hard. Matty P came over and picked me up and we headed out to Tum Thai in Rockville Center ~ 15 minutes away. Since the city is just too difficult and time consuming to get to, this was a great find. Flew to Albuquerque and back in the hotel. Short day with a full day of rest tomorrow.

End of Lake Jennings Camping & Beginning of a Rare 4-Day Trip

Day 3 of 3 camping at Lake Jennings. A definitely better night's sleep for all. Missed out on some awesome fireside chat since I fell asleep putting Benji down. Snoozed a bit longer than intended but we all had an awesome pancake breakfast brought to you by one of the awesome camping moms. This trip couldn't have been as successful without the planning of one of the most organized camping moms!

I found out I got assigned a four day trip so after packing up, went home, had lunch, took an awesome shower then napped up until I had to go and drive to Long Beach. Took an extra hour because of traffic and of course the plane was late so I was on time!

Lake Jennings Part 1 of 3

Day 1 of 3 camping at Lake Jennings and I'm setting up the camp site by myself. Norah helped out quite a bit in setting up our Marmot Limelight 3P and unloading all the sleeping gear from the car and into the tent. Bought two Coleman Sleeping Bags 2-in-1 from Costco and they're pretty awesome. Also bought a Lightspeed Sleeping Pad too just in case. If you head to Costco right now, it's all camping gear and beach gear! I need to make another run!

Republicans Getting Bought

A look at eight of the country’s largest providers, as well as five of the trade groups that signed a letter in January in favor of overturning the rules, show that in the last six years, they gave a total of at least $1,726,288 to those 22 senators — an average of more than half a million dollars per election cycle.

Idiots. We should probably harvest their internet browsing history and share it with their constituents. Idiots. It's our political system and if this isn't a form of corruption, I don't know what is.

Back in Action

Obviously after a long trip and getting back at 2:00am, the morning of coffee making and drop off takes a small it. Today, I just got it going and even volunteered some more IT work at the school to get their copier, printer, fax machine to also start sending scanned images to the different e-mails. Good times! It's Wednesday so that means Tumble Gym Bus and a spontaneous Chich-Fil-A day date, naps, grilled cheese and mom comes home!

Roundtrip Redeye

I knew I was going to get this trip yesterday so I was able to prepare for it with a nap and some large amounts of coffee. LAX-MCO (not Buffalo), at the hotel for 11 hours then back to LAX. Short and sweet video since I can't really do too much recording. Thanks for watching! I also forgot my GoPro in the car so I didn't get anything on it. Thinking of pulling the trigger on the GoPro Karma Grip or DJI Osmo Gimbal.

Day Trip!

Yesterday around noon, I noticed that I was assigned a day trip today that consisted of LGB-SMF-LGB-LAS-LGB which also started at 6:00AM and ended at 2:30PM. No traffic both ways, I got home at 4:30PM in time to hang out at the park with friends and catch dinner at Board and Brew. Buffalo tomorrow!

Oh, and I got a new Handlebar / Seatpost / Pole Mount for my bicycle and an extra flex clamp grip!
