5-18-13 South Dakota

Day 2. Yesterday I left our beautiful home at 9 am as planned. There were no tears, there were no sad feelings. That house was our home and we were very happy there. I will always remember it as a house full of love and laughs. It was also the house where I saw my wife say goodbye to all. Now it is just a house, no longer a home for me. I left at 9 am, said “see you later” to my very good friends Shane and Cindy, now there were tears on that one. I left the house and drove to GENESYS, my school for the last fourteen years, the place I learned about all the things I am capable of and all the things business provide, good and bad. I said goodbye to a lot of great people, incredible amount of great people. They all gather by the front and gate and wished me good luck. I drove through the gate crying as a baby; I know they were all very happy for me and now I know it is time for a different school, for a different experience, it is time for getting my life in motion one more time.

 

I made a stop at Squaw Creek wildlife refuge. No bold eagles this time of the year

 

I drove to Wahoo Nebraska were I reconnected with a good friend, Daron Larson. I had a lovely evening with Daron and Trish and their beautiful daughters. We went through some of my photo books and it was the perfect way to get me back in focus on the goals I have lined up for the next couple of years. I am going to work on taking my photography where it needs to go. For now I am goofing around, warming up with Instagram. Soon I will be in the Rockies and it will be a different story.

My home on wheels and my ride

 

Tonight I will spend it in a rest area somewhere in South Dakota… I really have no clue where I am right now, I just trust my GPS. I will imagine the traffic noise is the ocean waves crashing on the beach, Sue used to say that. I can feel her very close, she is smiling.

Tomorrow I get to the Badlands, I hope the weather holds up

We were so blessed to be able spend time with you Carlos. You are an amazing man and I couldn't help but spend the day thinking about all of the adventures Sue and you had. Now the expedition you are beginning will be filled with a wide range of emotions. I know our family will be filled with anxiousness and excitement to watch your blog and track your path.

I know you are special when my 5 year old daughter wakes up and the first thing she asks is "where is Carlos?" For her to give a hug to a person that she spent approximately 8 hours with collectively was amazing for me as a father to see!! I am proud and honored to know you and my regret is I didn't keep in touch with you and Sue when I left.

Good luck my friend, we will be talking again.
