San Francisco Bound!
This is the first of a handful of scheduled blog posts for the next couple of weeks.
I'm not in Blighty anymore. In fact I'm quite a way from home – I'm in San Francisco!!
I turn 40 in just over a week and, rather than do surprise parties or dinner with family, my wife and I decided to get away and go somewhere we've not been before. After a few days in San Fran I will spend my actual birthday in Yosemite National Park with the bears, chipmunks and whatever other wildlife I can find.
I get to drive on the wrong side of the road at slow speed in an automatic car, eat my own body weight in food every day, visit a notorious maximum security prison island, then spend a few days amongst nature walking it all off!
I'm also taking a break from all forms of technology – or at least as much as is possible these days. I'm surrounded by tech on a day to basis and I'm sure it's frying my brain. I'll survive a few days without my iPad and the internet.
So, what can you look forward to while I'm away?
I was swept up by the release of the Dark Vengeance box set and the lovely models so there may be a post or two about that. I also have an overdue post pointing you towards some awesome painting and modelling tutorials that were brought to my attention recently. Beyond that who knows.
