Thanks. I'm glad you're enjoying the thread. Most of out trips and photos have been within a 30 mile radius of home. It's surprising just how much you can miss when you don't have the time to slow down and look. I used to have destinationitis, always gotta be somewhere, and usually running late. I would see something that I wanted to get a picture of, and ended up saying, "next time" or "I'll make another trip later." Many of those places are long gone now. Since I've gone through a lot of pain (physical, mental and emotional), I took an early retirement and I'm trying to force myself to slow down and look around. This thread is a bit of therapy for all of it. Maybe I can help others to see that adventures don't necessarily have to be long distance, time and money consuming things. Look around where you are. There are things that may be everyday places and events for you, but someone across the country, or on the other side of the world would think they are fascinating. Like this quote: "People need to open their eyes to all the little things around. You really don't have to ride the world, your backyard is full of adventure." - @jay547 Anyway, we'll keep exploring, and hopefully be able to bring y'all some interesting stuff to see. Glad to have y'all on board. .
