One of my favorite things as a kid was sitting on the porch watching the thunderstorms come rolling through over the cornfields. Where my grandmother would get out the holy water and start telling everyone to get into the basement. I use to love watching things blow up.
Now I’m not sure what the weather is wherever you are located. But here in Toronto we have had quite the strange year (or two). First we had a bitterly cold winter, followed by a very wet spring. Which made way the coldest June/July in 15 years. But lately what has been happening are these very large …
This is a story full of laughter, fear, and courage. A story about 3 guys — my brother, my cousin, and myself — on our travels from Brownsville, Texas, to Seattle, Washington. Unfortunately, my brother along the way became ill and therefore is absent from this video. Enjoy.
A special thanks to Jamie Andrew for his editing, acting, and not killing me in the process.
***This Video qualified for my Pecha Kucha presentation. Unlike everyone else that has done this exercise, I went beyond the normally 20 seconds/20 slides, and went for the 20 seconds/ 20 locations/ 20 arguments/ 20 bathroom breaks/ 3500 images format.***

San Antonio, founded in 1837 by the Dutch, or was it the English. I don’t think anyone will ever know. It is renowned for being the home of both the Alamo, and the Riverwalk and unless you are standing right in front of them you would probably miss it.
Its downtown could best be described as a used car lot for the abnormally large parking lots, and other then bringing your relative to see these attractions you could live your whole life without needing to go downtown.
It’s kind of ironic that as you exit the airplane in San Antonio, all you hear coming from the PA is Bing Crosby singing about a White Christmas; if they ever had a white Christmas in Texas, it would be a State of Emergency. Hasn’t there been enough of these holidays that someone would come up with a few warm weather Christmas Carols, or how about Global Warming Christmas Carols which instead of talking about sitting by the fire, and enjoying white snow. They talk about CO2 and a rainy Christmas afternoon.
