Shortly after binge watching Stranger Things, my girlfriend had the idea that we should put together a themed Halloween party. Since I had already been working on music-reactive LEDs as a hobby, it didn't seem much of a stretch to build a bunch of decorations. Because how cool would it be to party at the Byers house?
From December 2015 to May 2016, I designed and 3D printed a tie that I wore to the Sasquatch! Music Festival. While future videos to come will explain a bunch of the details, here are the basics.
Entering Death Valley
Sometimes, I'll probably just post some random photos I've taken as I enjoy the color it gives the site.
I captured this nearly six years ago, during late summer of 2010. I ended up parking the car on the side of the road for some sightseeing shortly after I saw two fighter jets scramble vertically from directly behind this guardrail. They didn't reappear, unfortunately--I reckoned they went back to the Air Force area just south of the western Death Valley entrance.
Earlier that morning, I started at a 10,000 ft elevation on Yosemite's eastern entrance where there were patches of snow on the ground. That evening, I were standing next to a sign that claimed the elevation at sea level. Getting out of the car here, I was blasted with the dry desert heat--definitely a change from the snow!
I've been back to Death Valley since then twice, and how hot and dry it is still amazes me.
