Today I was supposed to be going to a concert. Unfortunately the date was changed to October. Why? I have no idea. It might be because they are trying to come out with a new album and they wanted a break to do that or maybe it was because they just wanted to extend their tour so they added new places on their tour. I can't read their minds so who really knows why they decided to do that. Either way I am still going to Atlanta but instead of going today I will be driving up there tomorrow morning. Me and a few other people will be going up there to climb at Stone summit. 

Really I am pretty excited about Stone Summit since I have heard so many good things about it. I want to go there for the new routes, to get some inspiration while climbing, and to just SEND IT in this new gym. I'm just happy that there are others that are willing to make that drive and to meet me there. I don't mind going alone but I think it's more fun to go with others, especially when it comes to climbing. Its a community effort and recently I have been loving the people that I climb with. 

There's just something comforting about being with others that also enjoy the sport. Its a community of people who want you to do well, tell you beta, and just make you feel good while your on the wall. I love that so much. Of course I do have days where I want to climb alone and not really be seen but then there are other days where having those people gives you the extra boost. 

I'm excited for tomorrow and I hope that I get some good photos and footage of everyone climbing. This is going to be so much fun.

In case you missed it, I posted a video yesterday. The video is of the project I did for Immamuel Church. It shows you the process, the pour itself, and the ending result. If you’re interested in seeing it all then please watch the video down below. Give it a like, subscribe and of course share it with others. 



I will be posting another video of the two trips I did to Ecofina Springs soon. Both trips were a lot of fun but I think the second one definitely had more exploring then anything. The other had the whole trip in its entirety. So I will be sharing both in the same video with you guys. I hope you’re excited!

It took some time to get this together and I honestly wasn't sure how long it would take because of how much footage I had. At one point my computer even crashed so that was a fun time. But I finally got the video done and it is ready for you to watch if you are interested. This is a art video to show what I did for Immamuel Church. It shows you the process, the pour itself, and of course the final result of it all. Immamuel Church was amazing and gave me this opportunity to work with them and because of that I learned so much and I appreciated every lesson I was given. I didn't know how it was going to turn out and I was pretty nervous but the piece came out to be one of my best. They now have it in their possession and will be using it for the upcoming sermons in August and September. 



So please watch the video up above and give it a thumbs up. I hope to post more videos like this one in the future

I started editing the videos. The one that I started with is the church video. Little did I realize how long the videos actually are. So while I was editing the video the system I was using crashed. So halfway through the video editing I had to turn it off so that the computer could rest. Today I will be working on the rest of the video and I just pray that the system doesn't crash again before I finish it. Of course now that the trip to ecofina is finished I will also have a video for you guys with that crazy but fun experience. 

Honestly there is just so much going on and even this coming weekend I will be in Atlanta seeing Icon For hire and of course, be going to a climbing gym. 

But you will have to wait to hear about those adventures. For now I ask that you guys check out my artwork. All of it is for sale and I am about halfway to my goal for the year. So here is the link to my artwork.

Yesterday we went to Ecofina Springs. When I originally planned this trip I thought it would be around twenty to twenty five people that would go with us. The turnout was twelve which not only was still a good turnout but it was better than I expected. See we had threats of a storm coming so a lot of people canceled because of the possibility of being caught out in the rain. Of course I tried to tell people that the storm was going to go more west of New Orleans but nobody really listened to what I was saying. As it turns out, I was right (of course) and because of that all the people who listened got to have a grand time. 

 


When we got to the springs we all had to sign a paper stating that we were responsible for the Kayaks and to have them back before 6 p.m or there would be a $25 late fee for each kayak, every hour. Now that is a lot of cash right there when you have 6 tandem kayaks. When we got everyone gathered, went over the rules and piled into the van we all got super hyped up. Not only was it fun to just have everyone together but it was also the anticipation of actually having a nice day out after all the rain we had. 

On the ride over to the springs we could tell that our group was one of those groups that the drivers was not a fan of. We were loud, obnoxious, and just ridiculous. I am sure that they were ready to send us out there and to just be rid of us. SO when we got in the kayaks and started paddling away I'm sure that they all were talking about us on the drive back. 

 


The kayaking to the springs was nice. The sun was out and it honestly was one of those scenarios where I think everyone just wanted to let out some energy and just get there to drink and let loose. So when we got there we all parked our kayaks, started playing music and brought out the drinks. When the drinking started then the rope swing parade started up. The rope swing was almost like a challenge for the guys but of course it was also a lot of fun to just see them go at it. 

 


After the rope swing we had some people decide to climb a twenty five foot tree and jump out of it. One of the guys (Who I will call T) started climbing up the tree and realized that the boards that were put into the tree were pretty terrible so of course he pulled one OFF of the tree to demonstrate how terribly placed they really were. We were all standing there looking at him as he just dropped this board down into the water. Quickly someone retrieved the board so that someone didn’t land on the nails that were sticking out of it. 

For about ten minutes we were screaming at him to jump out of the tree. He was already all the way up so the only way out was to jump down. Finally he did it and we all cheered as he went along. Honestly it was so fun to watch him and I, of course, got some bomb photos of his jump. 

 


After a few hours we decided to head out after hearing the thunder storms coming our way. So we began the paddle down the stream. It took us an hour and about half way through we got down poured on but to be honest it was one of those situations that I was ok with. I love the rain and I love being out in nature. Everything was so quiet and it was even more beautiful with it raining. It was one of those scenarios that never really happens and I was glad to just be apart of it. 

All in all the trip was a success and I am so glad that we got to go. I can't wait for the next Rock Out Adventure.
