Fight Photo!


My friend finally e-mailed me a picture after my boxing match this past December. Danny Bonaduce was kind enough to emcee the event and let me take a photo with him!

Prospectin' fer GOLD!




My friend, Karl, took me gold prospecting near Washington, CA at Poor Man's Creek - one of the best nugget producing creeks during California's Gold Rush. The whole area, including the Washington Hotel, is supposed to be haunted. In the first video, Karl is talking to the Hotel's owner about a brief experience he had. In the second video...we were digging in the site where Karl had his experience the week before. It was very exciting when the metal detector went wild and I thought we hit the jackpot thanks to a possible ghost. Our friend, Robert, and his dog joined us later for more gold searchin'. Needless to say we returned home without the huge nugget we were hoping would let us retire early...but it was a fun adventure! (note to readers...videos will be uploaded soon - technical difficulties)

Postcards from the Future



The spaceship earth ride allowed you to send "postcards from the future" to yourself right after the ride ended. So here they are: Amy & I, Kelly & Steve Markkanen.

Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth is a cool ride in the big "golf ball" thing at Epcot. At the end of the ride, they produce a fun cartoon featuring the people in the ride. I was able to get my video camera out for part of it featuring Amy and I. Enjoy! video

Disneyworld pix





Just some random pictures from the trip. Kelly and I got to see a short, but free, concert of Boyz II Men at Epcot....all 3 of us won free "Year of a Million Dreams" Mickey Mouse Ears after riding the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom....then Markkanen joined us at Epcot and we all tried to imitate the gargoyle in the France section of the park.

Aerosmith Rock'n'Roller Coaster

Best ride at Hollywood Studios. Kelly was a bit nervous, but Amy convinced her to give it a try. Then Amy proceeded to do a little dance while we were waiting in line...HILARIOUS! video

A Fantasmic Morning

A quick video of Amy's excitment... video
