Writing about the things I do isn’t easy. Honestly, I tiptoe alot to keep my self from sounding like chicken little; that is, a small insignificant nobody who everyone thinks is just scared and crazy.

You ever been around people that just brag about their adventure and you just want to experience it for yourself? Well, this was me and the year 2015 was definitely an experience to remember. For a couple of years (at least it felt that way) I was desiring to have another type of experience with…
