Road Constructcion

When talking to locals about it, they said it had been going on for years. This is a theme… Continue reading Road Constructcion

Road Trip

Road Trip I recently took a road trip and noticed a few things that I was going to write about after a road trip I took a few months ago, but didn’t. After seeing the same things again, it seems appropriate to address them. As mentioned in recent blog posts, EMS seem to always approach… Continue reading Road Trip

Energy

Energy A friend of mine sent me a video of a little kid who has only recently learned to walk. As they are apt to do, he was reaching for something that heretofore was unobtainable.
