New Camera NIKON D60!!!

New Camera!!! I originally bought the camera for a Birthday/Christmas present, so I could photograph the night sky. But I think I'll use it for everyday use as well. OK, so I don't pretend to be a Photographer, or atleast not yet. But these are a few photo's I took yesterday that I really like, and hope you like them too.

Provo Temple

On Wednesday Katie and I left the Temple around 8:00 pm after doing sealings. We left with this site on the horizon, all I had was my Camera phone, not too great, but it had the desired effect. The first photo is without anything changed, the second is Photoshopped, I tried to saturated the blue and orange to give a little more to the photo. Hopefully it worked:)

Coolant Failure

A few weeks ago, my Coolant light came on, not knowing the severity of the problem, I kept driving home. That night I bought more coolant and put it in the car. The next day on the way to work, the light came on again, now I was worried, so once I got to work I checked the radiator, and sure enough there was a leak. I huge crack.
So I decided to Google Radiators. By accident, I ended up chatting online with Radiator.com. they said thay had my part, mentioned they could get it to me in a few hrs, and qouted me a price. I had no intention of doing something this extensive job on my own, but figured I'd save at least $100 doing it this way. So I took the following day off from work, and went home, the whole time with the coolant light on.



After arriving home and seeing the Radiator waiting for me I decided to begin the task at hand. It took me about two hrs to complete the job, the entire time Katie bored out of her mind watching me, with Delila curious yet bored as well. Finishing, I refilled the radiator with coolant, and called it a night. The day I took off, turned into a day to help my wife with girls camp, Oh joy.

Despite what they said, it was much harder than changing a tire.

Excited For The Subway

A few years ago, my family and I hiked the Subway. No not Subway Sandwich, or the Subway in Newyork. The Subway I speak of is a hike in Zions National Park, to do this particular hike, you need permits, the weather has to be favorable, and you need to be able to get wet, and not freak. A few things to remember while hiking this trail, are:

One-Myths: You do not need Rappeling gear, there is a cliff, but a side trail exists that allows you to avoid the cliff all together (We brought some gear, and while is was used on the cliff I felt bad for the person who had to carry it).

Two-Footwear: Wear shoes that are either meant to hike in water or shoes that don't have any special place in your heart (Teva, or Keens are my desired choice, though anything will work).

Three-Hydration: If at all possible bring a water filter, 9 miles hiking through desert and water can make anyone thirsty, and trust me when I say, you'll have plenty of water on the hike to filter (The particular water filter I own is a little more expensive than most but well worth the money it has a ceramic filter, and has a terricfic life span http://www.rei.com/product/695265).

Four-Apparal: Try to wear shorts that dry easily and are light, ie board shorts. Glasses and hats are preferrable but not needed (I also like to pack a pair of goggles, if you drop something in the water it's nice to find it again:) that really happened, and I used them).

Finally do not think that a 9 mile hike down hill is easy, this hike can kill you if you're not careful. There's reasons why permits are required for this hike, Just don't be stupid. Oh and one more thing, if you can, bring a digital camera, last time I did, and I've never regreted it. Use a ziploc to protect it from water.

Here are some pictures I took from last time we went.

Harlick Logo

My In laws are amazing people, so I decided to say thank you by making this cool updated logo for their company. Since my understanding is limited with the programs to make such a Logo. I acquired the help from my Father who is a genius at the programs. He helped me learn more about 3-D modeling and Animation, hopefully I can take what I've learned and grow from there.

The main edge Harlick has, is their hand made custom boots. Not only are they very durable, comfortable, the company designs, fits and makes their boots here in the country. While most other companies around the US outsource their production over seas to cut costs and increase profits, Harlick remains a family oriented company that provides good quality for a good deal.

A few movies that have used Harlick Skates are Ice Princess and Blades Of Glory.
