Blowout!!!
You never know what you'll encounter out on the highway. During a peaceful drive across I-64 in southern Indiana, the reverie of Sean Hannity's radio show was interrupted by a blowout on the tractor-trailer that had just passed me. I caught it all on video. This one's short and sweet. (0:07; 808 KB)
I-64 meets the Mountain Parkway
This was the first video I ever shot and produced. On the way home from Lexington, the day I bought the camera, I held the camera as steady as I could with one hand as I negotiated eastbound I-64 and the entrance ramp to the Mountain Parkway. (2:12; 13.1 MB)
