Another new blog.

I sometimes get bored. In some of those instances I am close enough to paper to write things down. Thats what this blog is for. Now everyone can enjoy those slow little stories. Please let me know what you think.

Using what you got.

When I got my camera it came with a 18-55mm lens. But I had been drooling over some fancy lenses from the get go. So, I bought them and stuffed my stock lens in the camera bag so that it wouldn't embarrass me.
I saw my poor stock lens and felt bad for it. So I went out and spent my Sunday with my 18-55 and here are the results.

My car is always ready to go.

I found a chair outside of a warehouse today so I took some pictures. These turned out to be some of my favorite pics I have taken in a long time. So, enjoy the portraits of Chair.

We had a bunch of paved acreage, tire and some cones. But what else do you really need to have a good time.

A few posts ago when I shouted, "'Tis the season!" I had a lot of seasons in mind. Not only do I get to drive on sand at the Dunes and rock at the Moab, but I also get to drive sideways on asphalt!

It's drift season again!!!

Our first event for the season was at Miller Motorsports Park in Grantsville Utah. They let us slide around in the parking lot till the dust of burnt tires was thick on my dash board.

We have several more events this year, mainly put on by Drift Enterprise, our local drift gig heroes. Click on their name to see the schedule for the year. Pick an event and come join us for some drifting. I'll take you for a ride around the track.

And if you need more pics of the event you can see all the cars from all the angles here at DriftUtah.com, our local forum.

This is what my stock RX-8 looks like going sideways. It is possible, just very hard.
I made brandon run it around the track for me so I could get some photo proof that they will slide.

This is a big day in the lives of all of my cars. The first destroyed set of tires.
He's getting so big

I found one more zipper then anyone else.

Don't worry, it happens to Josh every event.


My very furry helmet.

Brandon hard at work.

If I were to stand on my car and take a picture this is what it would look like.
But why would I do that?

Another resolution bites the dust.

I had a resolution this year. I resolved to go a full year without buying new clothes or shoes.
I have a piles of both that I almost never get around to wearing. So I thought it would be an easy resolution to keep. Then I went to Disney's Epcot Center....

A little history;

I spent the 1980's practicing to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. All I lacked was the two-toed feet they had. I knew ninjas had special shoes but I was never able to find any I could afford on the salary I earned as an 8 year old. Hard times.

Now that I am all grown up and a full blown ninja I have to consider other things in foot ware besides how many toes it may or may not have. I also have to take into account that a good part of my life is spent in an office, and my shoes have to act accordingly.

Lucky for me Epcot had the answer that I didn't even know I was looking for. It came in the form of Sou-Sou shoes for sale in the Japan section of Epcot. These shoes are dressy ninja shoes at their finest. (I checked out their website http://www.sousou.co.jp/ and found it confusing. It might be in another language, but it has some cool things too look at.)

So, I am happy to say that I broke my New Year's resolution but in the coolest way possible. Have a look.

As I said in the last blog, 'tis the season. That season includes a March trip to Moab, Utah. I have piles of pics of us driving up and down all sorts of rocky things. Until then here are some pics of some other things to look at down there.

No idea what this means but it looks cool.

Try not to fall on this.
