    The United States

    So I watched a video narrated by Alan Watts the other day and got really inspired. The message was pretty powerful. So I created a video instead of studying for finals.

    This basically boils down to a highlight reel of trips that I have been on in the last 6 months. And there IS a brief glimpse of a hammock, so you guys and girls are just going to love it!

    Anyways - I just thought the message was a really good one, and I hope you enjoy the footage.

    Oh - and I put the US in the subjuct because the footage ranges from Kentucky to Washington State.

    JD(and Alan Watts): That video made my day, and I can tell, even by not knowing you at all, that you are my brothers

    Ya, the hammock - and a wood-stove at 2:00.

    Alan Watts wrote some interesting books; started out as an Anglican priest, then got into Zen.

    Awesome guys! Thanks for the words. Ramen: that little slice of land was Washington State on the way to spider gap in the Cascades. Incredible place. Half astronomical - brothers it is then.
