Hello all,
I am now a blogger seeing as I have a blog and you are reading it. In a way I've always hated bloggers. They seem very self absorbed, this is what I'm doing now and these are pictures of it. It seems conceited in a way... and now I'm doing the same thing.
The deal is, how I justify this is, I travel a bit and I want people to see pictures they are in, experiences they were part of. I also want to showcase a bit of nature. Anybody who knows me knows I'm a sucker for wildflowers and wildlife. It's how I can draw a two hour hike into a five hour hike-- by taking far too many pictures. I also want the far away friends (you crazy bastards in Minnesota) to see that I'm still alive and kicking. I also want to give you some entertainment when you're really, really bored.
"What should we do?"
"We could look on Nathan's blog."
"Sure, I guess. We can count speling errors." (I did that last one on purpose for the sake of irony. Did I spell irony right?)
So see, I'm creating the blog for all my wonderful friends, to show them how much I love them and how much they mean to me and, screw it. I have to admit the blog thing has a lot to do with tooting my own horn and portraying the best side of my life, but spending time with friends and family is the best side of my life. So there, everybody wins. I hope y'all enjoy.
Hello friends, family and the random lost blogger,
I got back from my North American Tour last week where I managed to visit the three states of Arizona, Utah and Wyoming ( and don't say that Utah doesn't count just because I already live in the state). Many of you saw me and therefore you are in some of the pictures, cause and effect. You will see that there is a common theme in my adventures as of late: rain. I learned that general positivity only strengthes a storm's power. Phrases such as "It looks like it's going to pass," or "It's going around us," phrases that many of my friends utter, only strenthen a storm's resolve to strike down the optimistic orator. You'll never hear me say phrases like those. I tend to be more of a realist, "Jesus! That thing is heading right for us," is more likely to come out of my mouth.
I've been pretty active as of late: kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, camping, frisbee golfing, real golfing. Don't let that fool you though. Many of those sports are just excuses to go drink beer in the woods.
I love to hear anyone's comments on the pics, just not on my spelling. I can't wait to see those of you who weren't included on the North American Tour and for those who were on the tour, fear not, we'll meet again soon.

Hugs and burritos,
