Throw Me to the Wolves and I'll Return Leading the Pack
A week before Wandering Wednesday's Ryan and I always get together and make plans for what we are going to do that weekend, because we do things on Sunday and I post on Wednesday! We made plans to take our buddy wolf and Rebecca to a strip club for their birthdays..for the first time! Please, be sure to click on their names and give them some love. Shortly after I got off work Ryan and Rebecca met me and then we waited for our cousin Destiny to get off work since her shift was shortly over and we all went and explored Chesterfield while we waited for Wolf to get off work as well. Don't forget to check out the video at the end to get a good feel how the night went.
Chesterfield Adventure and Roxy's Strip Club VLOG
After the long day of working a nine hour shift, exploring Chesterfield, kicking it with Destiny, and finishing our time at Roxy's we headed back to our home town to finish the night there and planned to get up early to head to Springfield, MO to have a training day with the parkour community there, although we could never get solid communication so we ended up staying around and decided to hit up Rolla where you can find Missouri S&T which is an engineering college and some other spots in the area. This place is the roots where Ryan and I came from and where our parkour and freerunning journey started so coming here was surreal and no better day to go with the weather being in the high sixties.

Crawford County Historical Museum
The large 1934 two-story building at 308 N. Smith Street is imposing, but it all started with one cabinet and three items. Now there are three floors of history, and it overflows with items of historical interest. This museum doesn't offer a lot of opportunities for parkour or freerunning but we managed to create what we have with what we had. On Smith Street in Cuba, Missouri, next to Recklein Auditorium where residents go to vote and across from the Recklein Library, a large, rock 1934 building sits back from the street with a green lawn in front.
Where You Can Find the Hood Rats
We spent a good part of the day in Rolla and we decided to get going before it got dark to hit up some other locations in Cuba which is about a twenty five minute drive back. Located at Hood Park, just off Route 66. Hood Park is also a location for walking and biking but we used it a little different. The park is huge and it's where the city of Cuba holds the county fairs and other large events. The best place for any parkour here is in the woods where there are trees laying all over the ground for tricks and rocks to climb and flip off. We had a lot of fun hitting up some old training spots and showing Rebecca some of those spots in person, be sure to check out the video at the end to get a good feel how the day went.
Why Does It Take A Minute To Say, "Hello" and Forever To Say, "Goodbye"
We couldn't stay too long after our training because I had to go back to the city for a HP (Hewlett Packard) meeting and training at nine in the evening. One thing that always sucks is saying goodbye to people you love and care about, i always dread it because I don't want to say goodbye and wish the moments could last forever. As much as I hate it, it's good to say it because you never know when you will see them again.
Knowledge Is Power
If you don't know i'm employed at a local Best Buy which I absolutely enjoy my work, it helps with the growing industry of photography because I'm around all kinds of technology. Photography isn't all about cameras and lens but also computers and printers. One of the vendors at Best Buy had some sort of training ending with dinner and a movie. Now don't get me wrong the dinner and movie motivated me to go because I love food especially when it's free but going to this and learning more about HP can only benefit me with not only selling but also the technology because how else am going to get your photos printed? I feel I learned and gained a lot from the training so I can't wait to apply that to selling and figuring out a good printer to either sell to you or use for my benefit. I can't thank HP enough for the great opportunity to grow and the hospitality. I also filmed the entire day besides my shift at work so don't forget to check out the video below and get a feel how the day went.
