Walking the train bridge
We took band pictures today. You know. . . it's kind of hard being in a band with a bunch of risk-taking daredevils. Where did we take the shots, you ask? Try a thin rickety train bridge 350 feet in the air (ok, a train bridge that was probably only 60 feet up - but far enough to die if I were to fall.
And we had to climb around on the underbelly of it all. Agh, I try to avoid unnecessary risks like this! I really don't want to end up being one of those cautionary tales that parents tell their children. "You know Jason Latshaw climbed up on a train bridge just like that one and now he's missing a spleen. That's why he smells so bad."
Well, it all worked out, I do still have my spleen, and I don't stink (too bad). So I guess things worked out. And I think we got some excellent pictures, thanks to Brett Weber, Photographer Extraordinaire. You all will see them soon enough.

Just be thankful that we didn't make you bungee jump from it or run and dive off the edge with a rope swing (both favorite activities in the past).
I would not have done either of those things unless you had a loved one at gunpoint.
