It's Been Awhile

So I after a long drought of posts it's time for me to bring everyone up to speed on the the bus ride I call life. So I'm single again, Kate and I have broken up. It was something we both came to in our own time and terms and I will always be friends with her. I learned more about myself in the last year than I ever have in the past and for that alone I will always be thankful to her and will always have a special place in my heart for her. And my life always works out for the best for me even if I don't understand the route the driver is taking me. Dealing with the break-up is my main excuse for not writing lately but we all know it's because I'm lazy. I just sat here for 3 minutes to try and convince myself it was some other reason (the break up only happened 2 weeks ago, what about the other missing 30 odd days Sean?) but it all comes back to me being lazy. It's not like I don't have the time. So this post many tend to wander as my thoughts come out and I remember things I wanted to post before but just decided to wait and let them chill for awhile and make sure I wanted to write about anything. Over the last 14 days I have driven over 3000 miles (4800km for my European readers) with one day off in the middle. I have over 1200 miles (2000km) to drive this week with this Tuesday being my first day off in 8 days. have a round trip to Montreal on Friday to drop two campers off. I would love to stay the night and spend Saturday and Sunday exploring the city but I am not sure if I can swing it as I have a pick up on Saturday that is a 5 hour round trip and those are my bread and butter runs but who knows.
Quick Side Note (I warned you):
Watch this video, then go buy the whole album, you will not be disappointed.
Camp has been fun the first session is now over and we start the last 3 week until the end of camp. While there is a small chance I will return to Slovakia for the fall I am looking into other options at this point. The one thing I am sure of is I will be in Ireland from the 6th until the 13th of September. What I am not sure of is since I am flying to Europe to begin with should I then just finish seeing the places in Europe I want to see? So I will most likely fly into and out of Amsterdam and use it a base to fly to other European cities. It has the advantages of been a great airport in a great city that I love taking pictures of. It is not out of the question for me to try and stay in Amsterdam for 2 months and visiting people I know in Europe. I would fly out for a 3 to 4 day visits and then return or fly to another city. I also have a known place to stay in Amsterdam that is not way overpriced and it is located in a great part of the city for me. The cities I would like to visit include, London, Belfast, Prague, Istanbul, and finish in Stuttgart Germany with a tour of the Porsche Factory. This would lead me back home where by this time I would have located the perfect 1973 to 1986 Porsche 911 for my needs. And what are my needs in a 911 you ask? Just one, that will get me across the southern part of the country to California then up to Vancouver and back to the Northeast Region all before Santa slips down the chimney. With the option of spending my winter in Savannah GA again. Can all of this happen? Why not, I'm just a passenger on this bus, the driver knows where I would like to go and if these stops our on his route I will see them, if not, such is life, karma is karma. In the 2 weeks that follow camp I will most likely be up and down the east coast dropping in on people and leaving just as quickly, what can I say, it's me, good or bad this is what you get. Same with this post, I'm tired and I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow. Thanks to my loyal readers, I see you chasing the dragon, hope this helps.

It Occurred To Me....

as I was crossing the border into Canada yesterday, I have been in 7 countries in the last 10 months. The United States, Canada, Great Britain, The Netherlands, France, Austria and Slovakia. I hope to add Denmark to the list next month when I fly home to Bratislava. (if I can get outside the airport for a smoke, it counts as a visit in my book)

Darwin Award Finalist

The camera mans reaction is what kills me.
I bet you can't watch it just once.
