Yup, BronyCon out in Baltimore,Maryland is fast approaching. In just three weeks, my dad, friend and I leave for a 13-15 hour drive from Missouri to Baltimore. We plan on getting there Thursday so we can have a buffer day. That allows us to get our badges, check out the town a bit, and get a goods night sleep. We learned our lesson from 2013 when we got there the day of (VERY BAD IDEA!). This will all be our third time making the trek out to Baltimore for the sole purpose of attending BronyCon.

Enough rambling about that. On to the beyond part.
In early/mid September i'll be starting my NARS (National Academy of Railroad Sciences) course at Johnson County Community College. My family and I recently got both my brother and I's tuition's payed off, so we're all set for college. I'm pretty damn excited to be attending, and i really wish it'd get here soon. For my entire life, i've wanted to become a railroader, and it's finally going to happen after a long 13 years of school, and a long 18 years on this planet. I just want to fulfill this childhood dream of mine, and get a job working on what i've always loved.

After that, i should be on with my life. I can't really predict what will happen after that, so i'll have to go with the flow. I do have a general idea of what i want to happen but i can't be sure it it'll happen. If things go right, i would want to get a job with either Amtrak, BNSF, UP, or the KCS out of KC but i'll move if i have to, though i'd love to stay in the KC area.

So, here's to the future. Thank you everyone for sticking with me though the years as i grew here, and i can't wait to share how i change with you all here. Until the next update- Railphotos.

WOW, June is pretty much over, and it seams like it just was June 1st a week ago. Anyway, i thought i'd fill you in on some plans of mine for the summer/Fall.

Summer:
Next month (July) my family and I will be moving into a new home in town. That means i will be without internet for possibly a day or two. That also means i won't have any free time until after we're moved in due to all the stuff we have to pack, move and unpack.
BronyCon (August 7-9)- For my third year in a row, i will be returning to Baltimore,Md for BronyCon with my best friend and father. This year may be the last year i can attend for a while as i hope to have a job with the railroad by the time BronyCon rolls around next year. I hope i'll be able to get time off to go every year but i highly doubt it because railroads run 24/7 every day of the year.

Fall:
By September of this year, i will be going to College to become a railroad conductor. The program is 16 weeks long (Don't believe me, Google NARS or National Academy of Railroad Sciences) but only 6 weeks are in a actual class room, with the rest being a online portion.

Summer and Fall:
I'm a few years behind what is the norm (I'm 18 years old) but i will be working on getting my Drivers Licence. In order to get a job on the railroad, and well... anywhere, you need to have one. So after waiting to finish school i will be working on getting one and hopefully getting a temporary job so i can get some cash coming in to help with expenses and what not. Hopefully i'll have my Permit by early July, that way i can be well on my way to having a full licence by hopefully the end of the year, early next year. (My state has three steps to get a licence. 1. Permit. 2. Intermediate Licencee (Restrictions). 3. Full licence (Some restrictions but not alot like an Intermediate)

I am not that good at drawing but hand me a camera and i'll blow you away. I am really good at Railroad Photography and anything train related. Also, For those wondering why there are Ponies in my Favorites, I am a brony. If you don't know what a brony is then go Google it.
One of the reasons i have good photos is due to me taking Photo Classes in High school and due to me owning a nice Canon Rebel T5i. I have to admit, They're expensive camera's but worth every penny, But to use it for what i do, You'll need to buy a zoom lens for it but that's just a minor set back.
One thing i find my self doing alot is when ever i go view someone's account that post pictures of trains, I'll go through everything and look for fellow Railfan Brony's.
