One Month Flew By – Time Does Fly

But meanwhile time flies; it flies never to be regained. ~Virgil
Everyone finds themselves saying this at least a few times in their life, 'Where did the time go?' These fast few weeks, actually past month has been a whirlwind. Just to recap, mostly for my own sanity, there was hunting in New York, then I was on set for a couple of days for a new television series shot in Pittsburgh, then Thanksgiving came and went, then hunting season for two weeks locally, then my parents Wedding Anniversary, then the Discovering Portage Scavenger Hunt, and Christmas tree shopping with the family. Those are just the highlights. I'm sure I'll elaborate on each of these as I find the time in my schedule, but I wanted to get my thoughts organized to what seriously has been going on.
This past weekend alone was busy, busy, busy. I guess this time of year most people find that the case. Administering to the Discovering Portage Scavenger Hunt, in Portage, Pennsylvania took up a better part of my Saturday. Of course the days leading up in preparation for an event, is also equally time consuming. The Portage Winterfest commissioned Thrill of the Hunt to develop and administer to the Discovering Portage Scavenger Hunt for their Winterfest. Great idea!
The weatherman was forecasting a huge blizzard, which really wasn't the case, but the snow did randomly fall. Seriously, it was so pretty! Portage is about sixty some miles from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, about an hour and half to get there, opposite direction of Pittsburgh. Not a huge commute, but a little bit of a challenge with snowy roads. Now don't get me wrong, I have no issues driving in the snow, at all. But as common sense dictates, I am not invincible on the white covered roads and I needed to adjust my speed to reflect the weather, so it became a little more of a road trip.
As we were driving along, I couldn't help but reflect on my sister's Penn State University years. Picking her up, bringing her back and visiting Nicole at Penn State forced us to drive past Portage with every trip. So this little coal mining town was not foreign to me, but a familiar sign along the roadway.
It was great having MaRissa accompany me on this job. However, it was bittersweet not having my little helper right beside me. Where was Kyle? ..
