« Part 1: An Interesting Time... Part 2 of Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel series Part 3: I made it to Reno......and Beyond! »

I am really excited about my my trip to conduct interviews with prominent woodworkers!

I wanted to leave Minneapolis early on Monday, but I didn’t get on the road until after 4PM. I have been behind the wheel ever since, but I did take a few pictures along the way. I had always heard of the Corn Palace in Mitchell SD so when I realized that I happened to be right there I had to stop and take a few pictures.

They take their corn very seriously in South Dakota!!

I also got a few Corn Palace souvenirs.

The next day I found myself driving right past Mt. Rushmore, so of course I had to stop there, too!

Currently, I am in Elko, NV and should arrive in Reno tomorrow to interview Zac Higgins.

After that it is on to Sacramento to interview Ray Mowder of TabLeft Workshop.

After Sacramento it’s on to the the Bay area to interview the great wood sculptor, Michael Cooper.

I am meeting with many others along my route and I will let you know more about them when I get closer.
