Today marks 16 years since I was involved in a tragic accident. Most that follow my account already know that I love photography, that I also love my job as a truck driver but only a few know about this. On September 30th, 2003, I was driving that beautiful rig back from Wisconsin. 2.5 hours away from my hometown on a clear night, star filled sky, I was enjoying the ride while listening to music going 95km/h / 60 mph when a pick up truck deliberately swerved into my lane at an estimated 160km/h /100mph and ran into me head on. The driver was 18 years old, from what the cops were able/allowed to tell me, and decided that he was done with life. Long story short, if you have already pictured the scene in your head, your probably wondering how the hell am I still behind the wheel... The answer, I'm not even able to give it myself!! Passion, determination, the need to drive, all of those combined got me back behind the wheel the very next day eventhough my dad, who's also a driver and my boss at the time didn't think it was a good idea. The difference; they RESPECTED my decision, they LISTENED to what I had to say. To this day, I haven't really driven that truck model. Honestly, I'm SCARED of it. 16 years later, I still hear people tell me to "Get Over It" but I just can't. That event changed my life, my perception forever. Why am I saying all this you may ask?? No, I'm not looking for pity nor support. I've overcomed most of it on my own. What I want to bring up is AWARENESS! That kid that ran into me that night had some issues but did anyone ask or was he just laughed at?? MENTAL ILLNESS, PTSD, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, OCD etc are to be taken seriously, not laughed at. YOU CAN'T judge what someone else is feeling inside. YOU CAN'T tell anyone to "get over it" without living it.I was lucky, I had great support around me. My parents, great friends and an awesome boss that allowed me to take a breather, to sit with them and tell them exactly how I felt. I'm out there, I'm driving and doing what I love but unfortunately I know people, some friends as well, that deal with PTSD on a daily basis, that had to change their way of living because they couldn't handle it anymore.

No offense colorado.gov but if you want people to work at the #eisenhowertunnel on I70 I suggest you first figure out housing directly above it because commuting to that job would be #soulsucking especially with what appears to be never ending construction causing huge traffic jams in the middle of a Monday afternoon. #damnthistrafficjam #justanothermanicmonday 🎶 #mountaincomedown #weekendisover #mondayblues #isitfridayyet #takemehomecountryroad #constructionzone #beepbeep #lifeisahighway

“It’s just money, right?” . Said no one ever! 💸 It’s been a minute... Time for a gut-check on Gertrude the Great. 🐳 My recurring nightmare over the last 18+ months of this build is that after poring all this money and time into it, I’ve unknowingly made some critical error/mistake that will cause the bus to explode, catch fire, or otherwise be permanently incapacitated... 😱 I’ve bolstered myself again and again with the Dayenu of the Pesach Haggadah (or Jewish Passover liturgy). It goes like this: . IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH. 🇮🇱 If I had just bought the bus, but had never learned how to drive a diesel in the frigid winter ... It would have been enough. ❄️ If I had driven it home in the winter, but never survived the fuel gelling in Rapid City, the 270 deg spin-out on ice-bound I-94, or the night squatting in the snow banks of the “Broken Heart Ranch” in #hauganmontana ... It would have been enough. 🏔 If I had survived Montana, Rapid City and rapid revolution— if I had done all of this— some adventurous, artistic 30-something with no real career aspiration or life trajectory to speak of— only to have it totally blow up in my face... IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH. 🔥 I’ve told myself again and again that #thejourneyisthedestination , #lifeisahighway and #thereadinessisall Blah blah blah meow meow meow. 🐈 This month we came so dangerously close to experiencing the full force of these maxims played out in real time that I can only call the entire experience a gift. 🎁 The bus was in the shop for 4 weeks. 🗓 We went from minor fuel system issues, to “we can’t find anything wrong, so let’s disassemble the turbo,” to “IDK WTF is wrong with it so let’s do some more exploratory surgery and talk about fuel injector replacement and potential engine overhaul.” 💀 I call it a gift, because I’m seldom given the chance to hold up the implications of my words against the realities of my circumstances. To view the beauty, brevity and fragility of my life with authorial omniscience. . I feel a bit like Ebenezer Scrooge hearing the bells on Christmas morning. 🔔 Each one peals to me a new lease on life: It would have been enough. 🦃 It would have been enough

Happy Sustainable Sunday! This summer, the broski and I opted to take a road trip out to Manitoba in one of our hybrid cars rather than fly there. It may have taken about two days versus five and a half hours (including the time before and after the flight) to get to our destination but what an incredibly more enjoyable experience! The act of travel becomes an adventure within itself, not just a mere method to get from point A to point B. Say goodbye to overpriced, tiny airplane snacks and hello to local foods and Bulk Barn raids!🍬 To constant visual diversity of the geography around you versus monotonous clouds and sky. To radio surfing and Spotify playlists (or, shockingly, conversations with real people) versus the drone of a jet engine and the isolation of in flight entertainment. To exploring new cities and towns and having wonderful human connections staying in Air BnBs versus the lack of all of that while lining up in silence through security, for franchise food, and for boarding. At the end of the day, yes, fossil fuels are still being burned for the sake of recreation and travel. But total carbon emissions per person are a mere fraction of what they would be had we taken a flight. And the experiences I had along the way doubled the amount of things I did, saw and enjoyed from the destination vacation itself. My head will always be in the clouds but my soul is much more fulfilled when my feet stay on the ground.💚🌱🌍 #sustainableisattainable #sustainablesunday #carbonemissions #roadtrippin #hybridcars #explorecanada #exploreamerica #exploreontario #nomoreplanes #hittheroad #alternativetransportation #lifeisahighway #summervacation #lifeisbeautiful #northernontario #chicago #manitoba #minnesota #northdakota #wisconsin #illinois #michigan #roadtrip #voyagesurlaroute #viaje #peoplefortheplanet

"Transparency" From its start at about 4400' above sea level high in the Olympic Mountains, the pristine waters of Barnes Creek gradually flow downhill into Lake Crescent (580' above sea level). Also fed by waters from Falls Creek, named for the popular Marymere Falls along that waterway, Barnes Creek sustains the spawning habitat for the Crescenti cutthroat trout, a local form of the coastal cutthroat trout isolated in Lake Crescent. Here, not far from Marymere Falls, the water is calm and mirror-like offering glimpses of a rare blue sky framed by the towering trees on either side of the creek.
