WOW! It has been over 2 years sine my last blog entry. I guess that's the spot in my life timeline where I left RC. Well I never really left RC, but I have had so many other things going on I would only fly once every couple of months. It has not been all bad though, I have learned, and gained a lot in the time I spent away from RC. I set a goal to run a 5K race in under 25min, and 4 months later ran my first 5K race in 21:13! I am excited to be starting a new chapter in my life though. I FINALLY decided I want to make a career out of videography and photography. It's something I have always enjoyed doing and lately as I have started putting more time into it, my passion for it has grown. I have slowly been building up my camera gear, and know-how for the past year or so and finally decided I have everything I need to get me started and it's time to make the jump. So about a month ago I switched from working full time to working 24 hours a week in an effort to start "Duct Tape Productions". It's nothing official, copyrighted, or licensed yet, just a dream that will hopefully start to fade into reality over the next few years. Which will hopefully also lead to flying more. RC is not however the focus for DT Productions, my aim is more towards commercials, music videos, etc.
I just got back from SEFF yesterday(which I will post about in another a later blog), and it really reminded me how much fun it is not just to fly, but to be around the rest of the guys in the RC community.
Well that's it in a nutshell. I'm sure there will be plenty more to come as this all pans out.
