I woke up this morning and thought to myself, now what? Well, I never have a shortage of projects and that stands true today. I have a lot of footage to go over and I am beginning the editing of my documentary about riding my bike across the US. I am also working with our editors to get our last film, Escalators, finished. Most of all, myself, Brian Page, and Jacob Beil are working hard to get our production company Tumblerock Media off the ground (more on this and the bike documentary will be coming soon). With all of this in mind, I bought a new toy today so I can enjoy my time here in Los Angeles.
As far as the bicycle trip goes, I could not be happier with how it went. I am really glad I decided to head west and I am especially glad that I did it solo. Being alone was definitely a challenge at times, but I think it really allowed me to grow as a person. I figured out when to ask for help and when to rely on my instincts. I had a lot of time to think and even more time to explore and meet some truly incredible people.
Although I was biking alone, there is no way that I could have done this trip without the support of my production team. Vincent Krohn, Brian Page, and Jacob Beil really gave me confidence because I knew that they would be there if anything went wrong. When things did go wrong, they bailed me out in no time.
I also have to thank Megan Cackett, my family, friends, and everybody that sent me encouraging messages and left comments on my posts. Some nights those were more important to me than you can ever understand. So thanks for reading, more adventures to come.
