1,015,152 miles and counting

Like a thief in the night it finally happened, I hit 1,000,000 American Airlines miles.  Like most who have hit the million mile mark it is both a badge of pride and one of shame.

Realizing you’ve flown around the circumference of the earth 40.22 times is very exciting.  Unfortunately the excitement sometimes is overtaken by the feelings you get when you realize how many many important and not so important events in your life you’ve missed while orbiting the globe (read: birthday’s, births, anniversaries, dinners with friends, or just a nice glass of wine at home with your wife and dogs).

So with that being said let me thank all of those people close to me who have embraced my travel schedule and allowed me the room to grow as a photographer, a husband, a friend, a person, and a traveler while on the road.  I couldn’t of done it with your support.  So as I board another plane tomorrow heading home, here’s to a million more miles.

    Thanks Brenda. And yes, let’s not forget about those millions of images. I feel I need a badge of honor for those milestones as well.

    Congrats on another milestone under your belt! It’s been a trip watching you over the years grow into a bona fide pro!

  4. Your advice on Santa Barbara was spot on! We have loved staying on Miramar Beach and calling Montecito home. We have enjoyed the great restaurants of SB and the so many great hiking trails and places to see. Your customized google map with place to visit was a great kick start. Seeing dolphins each morning and several sea lions has been special for both the kids and I.
    Thanks again for taking the time to share.
    See you soon in SF on my next visit.
    Tim
