I have a lot of awesome memories from 2014, but I thought I’d try and keep it short and sweet as best I can, so here are some highlights from my 2014 year in photos.
I started off the year visiting a friend in Nashville Tennessee, where we shot guns, flew around in a helicopter, and did some fixed-wing flying.
I did a lot of travelling in 2014, particularly in the beginning of the year, with a few trips to Dallas to rack new servers for ServerCrate and NetherBox. The first trip to Dallas of 2014 was in February, for a large customer deployment in a new rack in the datacenter.
The first deployment I’ve done end to end by myself, just over half a rack of E3-1270v2 servers:
Here’s a picture in late February when I toured the Westin building (a datacenter in Seattle), a pic from the roof of the building:
Of course throughout February and March I was going through flight training. Here’s a shot of the space needle during a fly-by:
I also installed a new monitor rig for my desk, and picked up a new laptop:
April comes around. time for another Dallas trip. For this trip I went in to install some new hardware, and move some gear around:
After an awesome time in Colorado, I went over to Nashville again for some more shooting, helicoptering, and Dave & Busters’.
After a fairly crazy start to April, time for another Dallas trip:
When flying back into Seattle, I flew right over my helicopter flight school:
Around comes June, and we decided to take my dad out for a segway tour around Seattle:
I went on a hike up to Rattlesnake lake with a few friends just before heading out to my month-long trip to England:
I’ve got a lot of pictures from England, so just posting my highlights, in the future I’ll try and blog about longer trips so I post more pics.
I had an awesome first-meal back in the UK, on the outskirts of London with my aunt:
Then we walked around Wimbledon:
A few more pics of fun times around London:
Then I met up with some friends:
We flew over London in a heli (my first time doing so), and went to Amberly Castle for lunch:
Then we drove around in a pink hummer limo:
Some other miscellaneous pictures from the UK trip, again, don’t have time to talk about everything in this trip:
In August, we decided to go on another trip to Colorado for some ATV riding in the mountains. There wasn’t any snow this time:
During September/November, I really ramped up my flight training. I did my first solo flight, and first night/cross country flights:
The last major trip I went on was my trip to Hawaii with my family in December:
We did some scuba diving while we were there:
Anyway, there’s a few pictures that show what I did in 2014. Thanks to everyone that helped make 2014 such an awesome year for me.
