The last day of my 2 week Chinese New Year vacation was a blast. My friend invited me to go on a mystery road trip. We saw some amazing sights along the way and at the top of a mountain had a hot pot lunch, both of our wives didn't want to join so it was just the two of us.

After lunch we kept driving deeper into the mountains enjoying the views. It's always unbelievable that all of the things I do are all within "Beijing". It's more than just the Forbidden City and summer palace, and after 24 years here I am still finding new places.

HA! Yeah, was very cool to see! Saw your trip into the moutains as well just now. Enjoying it all, and how cool is it with your car as well! You ever get back home, we will have to meet up!

Looks like a really good time.

During last weekend's road trip I also recorded video and while I only have one camera, I had enough footage to make a basic video. I tries some new editing techniques (it took me a few hours to learn how to create an animated map) and this is the first time I tried a narration. It's not the best, but it was a learning exercise. Usually when I record my voice it's for a punk/ ska song, so making it clean and bold was a challenge. I learned a lot and next time it will be better!

I hope that the link works around the world, and hope you all enjoy the views (and hospitality) that I get living abroad! I'm always excited to share my experiences.

Absolutely love the video. You did a great job on it. I bet you and your Camaro get a lot of attention! Your friend’s SRT 8 was very nice also.

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. My friend wrecked his Aston Martin last summer and the SRT8 was his replacement.

There are a lot of Jeeps in China, but SRTs are very rare.
