A Detour Into Something Big

Dear Friends,

Sorry (again) for the long silence. Connected States is being repurposed, in a way. Or you might say I'm going to be using it for a bigger mission. I've always wanted this project to be a way of making the world (and the U.S.) a better place, and this is my attempt to do that. 

That video is a quick summary of what I'm getting myself into. You can find more information here: www.27Monuments.org

The plan is for more than 6,000 miles in less than four weeks, plus a ton of exploring, shooting, and editing. I'm worried about the sleeping thing (as it's nearly 3am while I write this and I need to hit the road first thing in the morning), but I guess I'll figure it out. 

In the meantime, please do follow along over at Instagram, and there's a Facebook page for the project as well. And if you yourself have been to any of the monuments currently under threat, please post photos of them on Instagram and use the #27Monuments hashtag. Let's spread the word and see if we can save these amazing places.

Thank you, as always, for reading. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming after July 10th... or after I've slept for a few days after that, anyway.
