Fancy Coffee Pre-Friday: Roadtrippin’

Tomorrow morning I’m heading out for a weekend with a photographer.

I’ll let you digest that for a moment.  Go ahead, roll it around in your head for a little while and get all the accusatory thoughts thunk and out of the way.  You done yet?  Okay.

I’ve worked with Dave once before; it would have been twice but our first attempt at shooting was quite literally “washed out”.  His basement flooded, driveway was washed out and the chosen location had so much water crashing upon it that it was completely unsafe.  Nobody wants to rescue a model who has floated down river in the buff.  Well, maybe they do.

You see that spot down at the bottom... yeah - my ass would have been in Lake Superior. (2011 - Tettegouche State Park, MN)

When I was extended the offer to go on this trip with Dave, I inquired with Mr. Muse (who has met Dave) if he was okay with me going and his response was, “If you’re comfortable, I’m comfortable.”  I responded, “I’m comfortable… so, guess that means I’m going.  I’ll tell Dave.”

This will be my first venture to The Kinsey Institute in Bloomington, IN, and then it’s off to the canyonlands of Indiana and Illinois to work with Dave.  This will also be the first time riding in an ambulance (decommissioned – her name is “Annie”) fully conscious.

That’ll be a nice change.

PS – Mr. Muse has all the pertinent information.

PSS – my Special Forces friend also knows all pertinent information.

PSSS – stop worrying for Pete’s sake.

  1. Damn the mind clogging excuses! Road trip or bust – awesome 🙂

  2. Can’t wait to hear about your adventure!

    We think this sounds so exciting. We have really enjoyed your pics in the N magazine. Hope we get to see some of these too. Since Kim is from Wisconsin the shoots there have been of particular interest. She thinks we should make a trip up there during the summer and try taking some of our own, the back drops there are fab. Most of all our nature photos have been taken in Oklahoma. Have a great trip, we know it will be fun !! 🙂

  4. Woohoo! Rock on, girl!!
    Enjoy yourself.

  5. So I am sitting in your driveway waiting for you to get home. And Annie is not decommissioned. She is fully operational, but not an ambulance. Annie is a search and rescue vehicle and is part of the U.S. Search and Rescue Task Force. She is the only inland wilderness search and rescue vehicle in the state of Minnesota. Now my office in nowheresville, Wisconsin.

    I don’t see why there would be any cause for concern. Honestly. I hope the shoot was a success!

    I would really like to be able to replace the memory of my one trip in an ambulance — I was fully conscious, the whole time, but in a great deal of pain.

  7. Thank you, John. Unfortunately I rarely see conscious people. Mostly dead people. But then, you don’t have to listen to them screaming in pain. And that is a plus. Nothing can ruin the ride back like someone screaming at the top of their lungs while you are trying to listen to your favorite tune on the radio. That’s why morphine was invented. Not to help the pain of the person, but to keep them quiet so the driver of the vehicle could jive to the radio without being distracted by someone in the back screaming uncontrollably.

  8. Come on! Tell people you are still alive and the trip wasn’t a nightmare. They are waiting to hear the gory details. LOL

  9. Maybe that part about your “Queen Bee” mattress not holding air. Or the hard cooked egg with no brown around the edges.
    Just a thought…….
