New Blog Emerges in Blogosphere

Filed under:Web Log (Blog), Cool Stuff, USOE, Friends — posted by Tyler on April 26, 2007 @ 3:05 pm

My good friend, Clint, has begun recording his adventures in a new blog entitled “BonnevilleMariner“. The current story is one that I had the pleasure of being involved in; a noisy ride to Nevada in my oil-leaking Jeep with Clint and John. We nearly ran out of gas at least once and we were completely lost at one point. I can honestly say that that was the only time I’ve been lost and were it not for the insistence of the majority that we were finally walking up the right road, I might have been lost forever. I’ll comment more on his blog for history’s sake.

I look forward to reading more stories as they’re posted and I’m sure you’ll enjoy a lore or two if you take a moment to visit and browse. It will be more reminiscent for me seeing as how I’m Clint’s adventure buddy and have been involved in many of the adventures he’ll share. The one place he didn’t follow me was down an old, dark, long-forgotten mining tunnel. And wisely so. (Yet again, because he was there I am not still lost or now dead.) Thanks, Clint!

A Great Poem by Matt Fisher (1995)

Filed under:Inspiring, Cool Stuff, Video, Friends — posted by Tyler on February 23, 2007 @ 10:05 pm

John posted an old video on YouTube tonight that I made a while back. It was great to see it again, I had forgotten all about it. It’s a little bit corny in that you can pretty much tell that I stretched 1 minute of video footage into 4 minutes, but it’s still an interesting look into the past. The last four minutes is a reading of the entire poem that was written by my good friend Matt when he was on his mission in Rome, Italy in 1995.

Lucky to be Alive! (Amazing Pics)

Filed under:Photography, Cool Stuff — posted by Tyler on January 23, 2007 @ 9:59 am

A friend at work passed an email along to me with these pictures. He said it happened at the top of Hurricane Hill on the way to Kanab, Utah.

Look at the first picture below and you can see where this guy broke through the guard rail and left the road, traveling from right to left. He flipped across the end of the culvert and landed on the left side of it.

Look at the second picture and you can see how lucky he was.

See how lucky he was not to have fallen down so far.

Taralyn Appears on “The Price Is Right”!

Filed under:Cool Stuff, Video, Friends — posted by Tyler on December 21, 2006 @ 10:10 am

A family that I have the pleasure of home teaching went to Burbank, CA for a taping of “The Price Is Right” and Taralyn was “called on down”!

I compiled the highlights of her game into a 7 minute video for those of you who may have missed it. Enjoy!

Ski for $25 at Brighton this Saturday!

Filed under:Inspiring, Special Olympics, Cool Stuff — posted by Tyler on December 8, 2006 @ 12:21 am

Ski for Gold on December 9th, 2006!Want a heckuva deal for an all day lift ticket at Brighton Resort this Saturday? Donate $25 to “Ski for Gold” (a Ski-a-thon for Special Olympics Utah athletes) before midnight on December 8th. Print out your receipt and bring it up for a free lift ticket the day of Saturday, December 9th.

Want to make a difference without freezing your butt off in 44 inches of freezing snow? Donate whatever you will and have a good feeling in your heart this holiday season.

My goal is to raise $600 for Special Olympics Utah. I’m about 1/3 of the way there, but I’m determined to make it this year. (Last year I fell a little short.) I used to work at Special Olympics Utah so I know first hand how great a program it is. Special Olympics empowers individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition. It really is a worthy organization of your support.
If you’d rather donate your time instead of your money, I’m all about that, too! Visit the Special Olympics Utah website and get involved as a volunteer. All volunteers watch a General Orientation video, so when you watch it think of me. I filmed it (hours and hours of footage) and edited it.
