Summer plans for 2021

Well with school work finally out of the way I will now be focusing on time with my family and even take time to do what I normally do. Every summer I take the summer off of school to spend time with my family and more important my community. When I am off of school I use this time to do volunteering and even spending time with those closest to me. This summer I am lined up to do some fun kids camps at River Legacy. I am going to be helping with two big ones one on insects and the other one on camping and outdoor safety along with other things. I am also going to take time like I always do and go one some roving adventures. Over the summers of the past me and the family take a few short day trips or a weekend trips some place before we take an extended four- five day travel. This year Georgia and Florida are both on the agenda. My main goals are to find insects but also track down other birds and things. We are eyeing the trip after my birthday so that will be pretty good. I have a few things I am wanting to acquire for my birthday that will help me with many more of my adventures. I have not been to Florida or Georgia in twenty years. I turned six when I was in Florida. That was way before I was into the wildlife stuff full force and I was at Walt Disney World when I turned six. Still that maybe on the agenda for a time but I am wanting to get out to a few of the nature areas even the coast. My brother and my aunt are wanting to go and I do kind of want to go to the new Star Wars Galaxy's Edge for obvious reasons being a Sci-fi geek and all. I am also going to try to squeeze in one day or so to try and go to the Universal Studios to got to the Jurassic World area. I have been wanting to do that for a while. However aside from that since my brother and my aunt love theme parks some of the things I am planning involve park hopping and what not. We do a lot in Florida when we go and we always seem to work a lot of nature stuff in when we go even when we are at the theme parks. Even then you can get lucky and find some very cool stuff at the parks.

I used to work at a theme park and would see a lot of neat wildlife before I became a Texas Master Naturalist. I am wanting to go to the swamp lands of Georgia and do some other things. Like most of these big trips out of state. I like to do them in phases. For there are a lot of things that we want to do that are not always nature based but still we do what we can and then make return trips. Colorado, Arizona and other states I have some next phase plans. So when I am traveling I always get travel guides and things to plot and plan for future trips. This is going to be a lot of fun. I am so looking forward to this. I am also wanting very much to continue my search for the Dragonhunter Dragonfly. I still have not seen one but I am hoping that this year will be the year. I am also told we might go to Austin and there is a very cool Metro Park I got to during the summer that has a lot of dragonflies. I have been to that area twice and I always find cool things around there.

Most of my summer does have a lot of trips that revolve around iNaturalist. I may not be like some people but I do use it a lot and I am very dedicated fan. I have not stopped using it for I am just that dedicated. I love traveling with it even if there are days when I am not able to really got to a park more than a few minutes. Every bit helps and I love running about and getting data any way I can. So this year has been a bit odd with some things but over all it is good. I am really enjoying the time I have off from school. I am planning for trips and making notes. I am also making notes for other day trips and looking at species lists right now and planning best possible routes. My aunt goes to Florida ever so often to do school training and get there pretty quickly. And she does good at telling me about places she goes and tries to get some images. I have used some of her data to plan for this trip. So this will be interesting. One thing about me is I am a list maker and love mapping out stuff. I love to plot and scheme for different trips and things. If there is a trip there is always a time to do photography.

I am going for a professional wildlife and nature photographer degree and each place I go is always a unique opportunity to get that next big as we say "Kodak Moment" Even though I hardly use Kodak I have Nikon and a Canon. I sent my Nikon away to get fixed so I am hoping it will not be too much. I broke it when I was on the City Nature Challenge trail that Sunday so I was not very happy about that. So I hope it gets back before the trip. That will be the camera I use for the theme parks just to be safe. I mean it is just a point and shoot and I so want to have a picture taken of me at Universal at the Raptor paddock. I know I am a complete sci-fi dork but I like being a nerd and a geek. It has helped me become a better naturalist in some cases. That is why I call myself Galactic_Bug_man. Well I will give updates as they come.

Live long and prosper and I will see you on the trail.
