The Screeching-In Ceremony

I know…Kelly and I have been slacking off a little bit over the past couple of weeks. Heck, we turned one afternoon in the car into THREE vlogs! 

Well…to hold you over until our next vlog, here is some video I took of my “Screeching-In” ceremony that turned me into an “Official Honorary Newfoundlander”, taken during my trip there in February.

Throwback Thursday

If you have never been to Newfoundland, it’s a trip that I highly recommend.

Back in 2000, I moved to “the rock” on my own for a year as a traveling salesman. I lived for six months in Grand Falls and then the other six months in Paradise (a suburb of St. John’s). It was one of the most memorable times in my entire life.

I drove from one end of that island to the other; from the tip of St. Anthony (and yes, I saw icebergs in the water during the summertime) down to the scenic (but fairly desolate) seaside town of Harbour Breton back up to the tip of the province at Fogo Island. The scenery was spectacular and the driving never bothered me at all.

It’s been 15 years since I made that journey, and I stumbled upon a couple of pictures that reminded me of that incredible year.
