Amy the Outlaw

Guns are illegal in England, but permitted in the US so we took Amy out for some shooting. She is a natural.

Here is a vid of the rounds.

Living it up - Fancy

Now that Amy is here, I decided to class it up a bit. Last night we went to the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs with my parents. It was quite the classy ordeal.

Here is a video of the day. (Note - we started out with fine American cuisine)

Visitor from the UK

Amy (From my travels in Peru and Argentina) arrived yesterday to the United States. She has been back in England saving up money to travel again and was convinced to fly over for New Years for her first visit to the USA.

She flew into the Dulles Airport in DC

I then got to play the role of tour guide and took her to see the sights in DC. The White house was all lit up for the holidays.

Lincoln was doing it big as well. (That is me in the front left...)

After the sights I acclimated her to American cuisine by taking her to one of our many chain restaurants fro RIBS. Apparently ribs in the UK just are not the same, and the portion size is a little different.

After a night in DC we came back to Lewisburg and met up with BOB.

Christmas Past

Christmas has once again past and most of us now find ourselves with more stuff than we started with.

My Christmas was simple. I awoke and did gifts with my parents around 11.

Some of the loot...

More of it...

Contribution to the environment (note to self: look into ways to avoid this)

My parents hit up some rounds of Dancing With the Stars (Bros cat pictured)

Then went to the China Buffet to properly celebrate the season
It is the only restaurant open in town.

Team Sprad

Team Jonny Walker

(if you look closely you can see that I rocked the party shoes out because the moment called for it)

Happy Holidays

The tree is up here at the house and the season is kicking off tonight. Just thought I'd throw up a few pics of home so I can remember it when I am in Panama here in a week or so.

Enjoy the season

My mother has a thing for snowmen.

jonnywalkeradventures.com in Iraq

I received this picture the other day from my brother (third from the left) the other day. He is currently stationed in Iraq. Jonnywalkeradventures.com just went hardcore.

Special thanks to my bro and the Suicide Kings for the pics.

The shirts travel. Go Army.

Shots of School

I had to run to my school today (yes I am in school) to pick up a Student ID because I am tired of missing out on discounts that come with the ID.

Note the from the car photography

I actually saw the inside of the library. There is always an opportunity to have a personal "first".

Out in the Burg

Had to do it up big the other night. Forget what country I am in, there is a party

Snowboarding for a day

I decided that I needed a little break from home so I headed up the mountain for a day to get in some much needed snowboarding. Other than some small lift lines the weather was great.

You probably can' t tell from the pic, but I am actually moving downhill.

Not sure what my plan is to get my snowboarding fix for the season yet, but I am working on it.

Holiday Card from jonnywalkeradventures.com

So I had to keep it classy so here is my holiday card. Happy Holidays.

Tis the Season, to Party

Last night I kicked off the holiday season by attending a holiday gathering with friends.

Sadly it was not here because I could have had a crazy night with all of the lights.

The party was here and the lights were substituted for food.

Steps to own the night:

Step one: A kitty Christmas sweater
Step two: A santa hat

Step 3: A game of power hour

Step 4: unnecessary trip to the bar

All in all a good, if not remembered night.

Like a Hermit - Speaking for the very first time

I need to stop trying to sort stuff out and get back to the road, but sometimes a little legwork has to be done before you can get the legs working again.

The Snow Keeps Coming

Another night turns into another morning of waking up with a covering of snow on the ground. This winter looks to be one of our biggest in years if this keeps up.

Consider this snow claimed in the name of Jonny Walker

The Epic - 30 Min Video of South America

So I mashed up all of my videos from South America to make just one for the entire trip. It lasts 30 minutes so I applaud you if you make it the whole way through and I apologize for its length.

Now to start looking toward Europe. The Jonnywalkeradventures will be heading East as early as January to check out new places. Wish me luck.

Leaving the Mountain

My return to the mountain this year was very short-lived. With all the issues with housing and the pressing need for me to focus my efforts on my thesis I decided that it was in my best interest to not work this season.

Here is the cheesy video of heading out.

This will give me the time to focus on school and to start planning and packing for my European leg of the adventure that is slated to start sometime in January. Wish me luck.

Red Rover - Hot Dog Place

The other night I met up with some friends on the mountain for a big after Thanksgiving feast at the Hot Dog Place or Red Rover to those who can read the sign.
I enjoyed a corndog and some tater tots, and we all enjoyed 40s

This guy enjoyed the bag almost as much as his 40

This is what happens post 40

Iguazu Falls - VIDEO

Just another vid from South America. Just one or two left before I have to head out on another trip.
