This weekend Kaitlin and I decided to take the later flight from MCO (Orlando, FL) to BVT (Burlington, VT). The weather was incredibly bumpy, and I think this might have been the first jet I’ve been on where passengers have gotten sick. Upon arrival, we rented a car from Hertz and headed to the Holiday… Continue reading A weekend in Stowe, VT – Valentines Day
This weekend one of my coworkers who’s a private pilot instructor invited me to go flying with him in a single engine aircraft. We met up at Kissimmee Airport around 8am, where Brian showed me the facility as well as the plane and how to go over the check list before flight. He wanted to… Continue reading First Chance to Fly!
Tonight we went to Gayord Palms for their annual ICE! exhibit in Orlando, FL with Kaitlin, my roommate, and his gf for . The experience starts with a short video clip about how they bring in ice sculpting artists from china who are passionate about their work, the massive refrigeration units, and numerous tons of… Continue reading Gaylord Palms – ICE!

This weekend we decided to head to NYC. After my parents drove down to Orlando, we got them in the inflight simulator as well as flight simulator. The inflight simulator demonstrates the safety equipment on the Airbus A320, and does limited motion, such as a failed take off or a water landing. The flight simulator… Continue reading New York City With The Parents

Today we (my parents, Kaitlin, and myself) had the chance to visit the Jacksonville Navy Base and watch the Blue Angels at the Jacksonville Air Show. It was very cold, so attendance was low, which made getting out easy, but also made it darn miserable to stand there taking photos!
To test my new FLX Extreme, Philip and I decided to head to Ginnie Springs, so that he could play with his new camera and housing as well. I won’t say much about this one, as the photos speak for themselves.
So after going to Puerto Rico last week for work, I decided to return for a fun-only trip with Kaitlin. I took a few hours off of work, and we caught the JetBlue flight out of MCO to SJU. Upon arrival at the airport, we took the shuttle to Hertz, where we had a rental… Continue reading Puerto Rico Weekend Getaway
Recently I was invited by Marc Blackwood and Chris Hersch to attend a dive on the Spectre, which was one of the best dive boats I’ve been on. JetBlue currently offers a direct flight MCO->LGB, which was about 30 minutes from Marc’s house, so things worked out and it was an easy non-rev flight for… Continue reading Anacapa Island, Channel Islands National Park, California
This weekend I decided to test the new camera and housing out at Peacock Springs State Park.
