I decided that I've spent enough time in Atlanta. It's been an interesting experience to be sure. I really can't handle being land-locked. The humidity is a beast, I haven't been here during the summer before. The traffic is beginning to rival Los Angeles. That all said, I've done a lot since being here.
I joined the IATSE Local here, 479.
I've made life long friends.
I ran the most attended 10K on the planet, as well as a Marathon, which by the way, was the hardest one I've ever done, "Heat, Hills, and Humidity" is it's motto and it lives up to it.
I'm sure I'll come back to visit.
Cindy is staying; she's got lots of work here. The reason we all ended up here to begin with. Skye will be bi-coastal. She's going to be taking special effects make-up classes here, but she also misses the West Coast and friends.
There will be several adventures along the way back.
I am heading to Carhenge in Nebraska to view the solar eclipse. I am on the fence as to check of my 50 in 50; #37--Visit Stonehenge If at the end of the year I haven't made it over to the other side of the pond, I'll probably put a line through it, but I want to see the real McCoy.
And of course, there is TTITD, aka Burning Man.
I'm returning there with my Atlanta Circus friends. Helping out with our camp decor and mid-way games has been taking up the lion's share of my time.
Which reminds me, I need to wrap this up and get back to work.
Jon Danniells is an adventurer and traveler, a teacher and student, a husband and a father, a cook and a farmer, a "week-end warrior" (very amateur athlete) and has not earned any money on these labors of love.When I googled myself what showed up first was my IMDB listing, which is basically a resume for my 20 and then some year career in film, for which I fortunately do get paid.
