Weekend Trip

This weekend, Indi and I are going to Dallas to visit her uncle. I’m taking the Netbook as it will be a good dry run for our USA leg of the trip.

I also plan to get some additional musics to listen to on the drive. I have to sit in the back seat of the truck, which is fine…I just get carsick in the back. Bleh. It’s one of those weird things where I got sick as a kid, got better, and now I’m back to not handling it well.

Oh, and on an unrelated note: the building they approved to replace the WTC towers has been renamed to ‘One World Trade Center’. They were going to call it ‘Freedom Tower’. Am I the only one that thinks ‘Freedom Tower’ was stupid? It’s like that ‘Freedom Fries’ crap they pulled. It feels too PC and contrived. One World Trade Center is the address, and they are now going with that name. Good for them. Now if they can ever just get it built…

About rhysfunk

Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world. Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa. Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
