Trying to Make the Driving World a Little Less Annoying

8 Mile Road

The story starts off in Italy back in May 1999. My friend Luca invited me to drive from Regensburg down to Genoa with him to visit some of his relatives there. I said sure, as long as we could swing by Maranello and visit the Ferrari factory (another mediocre story for another time). So armed with my little point and shoot camera, I started snapping pictures out the car window at the Italian landscape.

Fast forward twenty-one years later to May 2020 and I’m locked down in a pandemic. I don’t bake bread or plant gardens, so I’m in my basement scanning film negatives instead. That’s when I re-discovered my pictures from Italy on that trip.

2015 Detroit Auto Show

(First, a BIG thanks to Mike O. for letting me have his ticket for the Porsche event held prior to the start of the auto show!)

2,000 Miles in 20 Minutes

Here’s the video of my trip from Sault Ste Marie to Key West taken in the middle of winter (in the northern hemisphere).

The video is technically 1,974 miles in 18:50 minutes, but that doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
