Have you lost Weight!

So with every thing I have been doing this last month I haven't had time to update my blog cause well, I have been in the back country in the Sierra Nevadas just a short drive out of Bishop Ca...Where did this all come from?

Well, when I was down in Brazil earlier this last year Aaron, one of the staff emailed me and asked if I would like to come with them on a few of their trips and document everything that they do in this school. Here is the Website. Of course I said yes!

So just a few things of what we did...a few days of Mountaineering, skills involved with that such as using an ice ax, learning Self Arrest, setting up protection climbing on ice, and how to walk down hill on ice...From there we were able to go Desert Canyoneering, so we went near Death Valley and found a mtn to climb up and repel down 11 waterfalls. Pretty amazing! This whole time I took photos of everything....I mean was pretty much a dream come true, very cool. So, before I was to come back home (to Salem) I was asked if I could stay longer and help out the DTS with a promo video....of course I said yes again and was able to help Jordan out with some production stuff, I ended up shooting some....wasn't infront of the camera but thats was a great learning expeience for me I had never shot a movie before...can't wait to see it. I'll be sure and share it when I can.

So, before the rock climbing and everything wears off until I go next time I wanted to get some photos off so you can see some stuff.

On a compleatly seperate note...It looks like my plans are going through this year. I think that I will be haveing a very interesting year...some things God and I talked about in Brazil are actually formulating....just not how I invisioned it...all that for another time to post.

I have been in this amazing office that you see here in photos and the last week I have been back in the office trying to publish all these photos....kind of drastic but, I think I can handle. Back to working in the middle of the night. order to save time I am going to bed right now...and sleep so I can work tomorrow.

Good day.
