As I edit my Volume 3 DVD over the next week or so be prepared to start seeing more from my Costa Rica trip back in August.  This DVD is shaping up quite nicely so far and I've barely scratched the surface!

Ringneck Snakes, Flat tires, and Shenanigans

In this short episode you get to see some of the other faces involved with Catching Creation. We all met in Union Grove, NC at Chance Feimster's house. Daniel Charles, Chance, Thomas LaVine and myself all loaded up in a small truck and went looking for snakes at some tin spots in Iredale county. We had quite a bit of fun initiating Thomas for his first time on camera, we found a ringneck snake, and got a flat tire. It was an adventure for sure.
