Jacksonville - this week.


On the road again

In less than 48 hours, I'll be in Australia give or take a few hours. Six weeks later, I will return to the states. Wow, haven't been gone that long since I started at IDS.

Have a happy New Year and I'll post my next blog from Australia. G'day!


Home Home

As of 7:30 am tomorrow we will be on our way home to PA for Christmas. The drive doesn't seem to be promising after looking at the weather. I probably should have bought the new tires I've been thinking about!

Over the next 6 weeks, I will only see my house for about 2 days. The rest will be spent in PA, Australia and New Zealand. I am looking forward to my trip back down under. My last trip to Australia was in 2005 and I've missed the Souvlaki ever since.

New Zealand will be a new experience for me. The most I've seen of New Zealand has been the inside of the Auckland airport. At this point all I know is that Brandi and I are going there for just shy of two weeks. However, we haven't made any plans... We've got a lot of planning to do.

Anyway, Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. I'll see y'all real soon.


Day 2

At 2:30 PM I killed a doe with a single shot. She felt no pain.


Deer season day 1

Day 1 wasn't so bad. I saw 5 deer today including a 6 point and an 8 point. My dad killed one of the smallest deer I've seen. Our neighbor killed a deer that wasn't much bigger and another member of our crew got a doe. So, like typical hicks, we've got three deer hanging in our garage.

Tomorrow will be a day filled with walking steep side hills and thick flats. I'll be ready for bed tomorrow night. I can already feel the cramps in my legs.
