On Wisconsin

Everything I have is now stored, stashed or stowed. I’m with my parents for the next two weeks in Wisconsin. I now have a little under two weeks to get my insurance, shots, gear and banking finalized. On March 29th I’ll be in Vegas. From there it’s on to LA and Hawaii. From there……THE WORLD!!! …

Last call

This is my last night in Minnesota. Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for Wisconsin and continue getting ready. I’ve realized that I’ve almost spent half of my life in Minnesota. Weird.

The circle is complete

I’m writing this on my new MacBook Pro. So far, its awesome. My first computer was a Apple IIc I purchased back in 1985. It served me well through high school and college. After I graduated I purchased a Mac LC. I think it was around 1994 when I got my first windows machine. It …

Wow, I screwed up

Its 12:40am and I’m still packing stuff. I have to be out at 9am. I totally mis-judged how much stuff I had left. I totally forgot some stuff. I got a hotel room close to my house and am moving stuff in here tonight because there is no way I could put it all in …

My last full day in my house, and so far it has been a great day. I got the peeps at Swiftknowledge to take way all my computers and networking gear. I had the junk guy show up and haul all my crap away. The painter showed up and fixed what needed fixing. I had …


Candid Camera

I’ve picked a camera. I’m going with the Nikon D200. I hope to purchase it later this week. The choice really boiled down to one thing and one thing only. GPS integration. I’m not that sophisticated in photography to know the ins and outs of various camera settings, so the performance wasn’t that big of …
