Sweet Gypsy Highway.....

Never been much of a bi-polar type, but lately I am an emotional rollercoaster - intense highs, incredible lows.

Two weeks ago, I pulled up to a military recruitment center at a mall with plans of joining the army. Yes, that is how much I lost my mind - Basically I just wanted someone to tell me what to do with my life.... Half way through a conversation, though - I realized that I was in an army recruitment center.... so, I left and bought a Jamba Juice instead. Things were good after that...

Traveling to Roosevelt Lake with Tracy was nice, it was a wonderful escape for a few days....

When I first met Tracy, I just figured she was another wanna-be model - there are tons of girls who write me every month asking for advice or what they should do to break into the industry - sometimes I try my best to help them out, sometimes I do not, because in the end..... most of them just fall off the face of the earth anyways. But Tracy is going to stick, I feel it... She is beautiful with a great sense for business and a love for the unknown. As a person, I really love and respect who she is - hoping that when I return from Canada, she will join up with the roadtrip.... She could use the photos for her portfolio; I could use the company....

Jet skis on rough waters and riding a Mule down the Grand Canyon does a number on your ass! So sore, let me tell you. Grand Canyon was great. When Pat broke up with me, I figured the least I could do for myself - was to take the money that I was going to spend on a plane ticket and spend it on something memorable that I normally would never do for myself.... Ten minutes after canceling my Cleveland ticket, I bought a round trip ticket to the bottom of the Canyon on the back of a mule. Ha. Totally random - not even sure why I chose that particular thing.... but it was both awesome and magical...

I met a beautiful man from Germany who owns a boat company in the Carribean - He just travels all over the world with the money off it ..... There were also two guys that got to the bottom on the Canyon at 11pm at night, with nothing but the light of an ipod - thank god for technology, huh? Mule riding is a lot of fun - they do get very close to the edge and sometimes trip but I feel like I am riding without my seatbelt on - total rebel...

The people who live near the Canyon have such a beautiful way of living.... Great sense of community. For example, I was sitting at the bar - Had just finished my drink. And this lady sitting at a table with her family, just gets up and pours me another drink, plugs it into the cash register, and takes away my other cup. She told me that Larry (my bartender).... was under-staffed tonight - So she was just helping him out....

Awww London, I love you! I'm so glad you had fun on the mule trip =D I saw goldie on your fivenakemodels video! She looks like a sweetie.

I'm also very happy that you had fun and could relax while you were here in Tucson. My family really loved having you around! And it meant a lot to me to have you here. I feel almost like we have been friends for a long time...but we really just met! I think that is awesome :)

I can't wait to join you on the roadtrip after Canada =D Good luck getting back into the swing of things. And please make sure to take care of your car before you leave the states!

I was going to join the Army, but I got a Jamba Juice instead. ROFLMAO. That's why I read this blog. That is awesome. Somehow I'm going to make that my tagline. You might start seeing that all over the Intarwebz. :)

You just don't understand how uplifting a jamba juice can be - on a hot, miserable day in LA... ha
