North Carolina Tomorrow  
I didn't get a chance to upload photos or edit video today like I would have liked but it was a very nice day. Got up pretty early and walked around the property. Had some breakfast snacks. Then later in the day Aunt Lori had to go into town to buy food for the house for the week. So I went with her because I needed those driving shoes. Found a good one with awesome coors. Here's the one I got in Thunder Reef color.
It has very good reviews on Amazon and it is pretty soft and should work great for the driving part of this. I also like the colors and designs. It looks like a computer/electronics or chemical formulas. Then we came home. I drove around filming my jeep. I filmed from the dashboard, I placed the camera on trees and on the ground to film the jeep going through the creeks and roads. That was very fun and cool. Then after that I decided to photograph around the property. I put the Gopro in the creeks and that will make for some relaxing videos. I love the sound of a babbling brook. I prefer that sound, it rushing over stones more than waterfalls which have more of a crashing sound. This video should show the difference between both sounds since there are small cascades on the property. Then my aunt wanted a rid in my jeep so we went to go look for black berries. We found some but only like six were ripe. All the rest are red so they're not ready yet.

I checked the tracing and the headlights arrived finally. I also got a decal that arrived today that is of a T-rex and it says "Your stick family was delicious"

Chris sent me photos of both. I love the box for the headlights. It's nice to have a legit product not a cheap Chinese rip off that's illegal. I drove a bit in the dark today and the factory lights suck so I wish I had these. Too bad I don't have them on the trip. I look forward to having them installed.

I've got almost everything packed. There are those annoying things you can't pack until the next morning like contacts, tooth brush and the sleep clothes you're currently wearing. It's weird how packing always works out that way. So I got almost everything I can loaded up and will get up tomorrow and hope to leave by sunrise. It says Charlotte is only 4 hours but it might take me longer with gas, rest stops and photo stops. I'll finally get to visit South Carolina and there might be some places I pull over just for photography.

Good night everyone.

Those shoes look nice. New Balance is a good brand, and their sizes are standardized. I will never have to try on another New Balance to know that their shoes fit.

I made the right choice. I love these new shoes and are so easy to drive with. The colors are great too.

Ha, you got New balance! I have a pair of those :) My podiatrist reckons they're a good brand.

Sounds like your trip is going well. I've probably missed a post but will find it in time. Your filming was cool. My eldest daughter recorded water balling over stones etc and used it in one of her art works.

Safe and happy travels for tomorrow!

Oh that's great. I'm happy to hear this. Great reviews on Amazon and now I see they are even recommended by doctors. They were great when I drove so I think we have a winner. Plus the color is awesome.

It's going well so far. I'm making it.

Thanks. I hope for that for the whole trip.

I'm glad you liked that. It's such a stupid trend here, at least in Florida, for people to post stick families on their back windows. I am sick of it so these dark humor stickers are great. There's all kinds. I've seen ones with Jason and his chainsaw, some of Empire from Star Wars attacking the stick family, a giant Jeep running them over. But the T-rex has been my fave so far. Perfect fora JP Jeep.
I'm very happy with these shoes. They're so nerdy and colorful. Ha glad you can imagine them.

Thanks. Had a bit of a snag the other night as you'll read about soon enough. But over all it is going great. I'm quite happy.

They've been great for driving. No more foot and leg pain now which is very important for this.
It was fun. Perhaps the berries will be ready on my return trip.
See what I said to Rahula about how it's a stupid trend down here to have stick families on back windshields. I love a T-rex eating them. I am looking forward to using those headlights when I get home.
