16 Hours and Counting…  Puerto Rico, Here I Come!

As stated previously, Alaska has been my home since I was a little kid.  There was plenty to explore and still is.  I won’t be back for sometime, but I will be back.  I leave a big chunk of my heart and soul here.  I made it through the Good Friday Earthquake of 1964, -35F winters and the glorious summers Alaska is famous for.  I’ve shot fireworks in Barrow (as lead pyro-technician) on New Years and ran the 4th of July Jaycees  “Freedom Days Festival” in 1985, in Anchorage.  Fond memories, for sure.

Because of the huge amount of time lost to post processing HD video, I will only be posting a few while I’m IN Puerto Rico.  Once I get back, I’ll prepare and… Continue reading
