Ahhhhh life...

I know I said I was going to update my blog a lot more then I have, yeah well, been busy with work and putting all my energy and time towards StormChaingVideo.com the facebook pages, the social media sites, the other stuff and life. 

I'm going to be working on a site overhaul this summer with more stock photos and video stuff.  Until then, I'll try to get more updates about what I have been up to.

Saturday I was woken up with the calls about thunderstorms and flooding.  Yes, it has been flooding a bit here in Central Minnesota. 

45 hours in a SUV to drive across the country and it was all live streamed

Ok just getting caught up on the personal blog about what has been happening in the last month.  Winter is finally over but I think we will have one more major winter storm in northern Minnesota before the end of this month. 

Ben and I survived the road trip across the country and we set the record for being the first to live stream across the United States of America and to live stream across the USA on Youtube Live.  It took 45 hours from Time Square in NYC with non stop driving to Venice Beach Pier in California.
