Canon Filmmakers Live – Atlanta

Had the opportunity to attend the Canon Filmmakers Live event in Atlanta starring the one and only Philip Bloom.  The event was on March 16, 2011 from 10:00am until about 6:00pm.  I left the house at 4:00am to drive there.  Atlanta is about a 5 hour drive for me from where I live in Mount Pleasant (Charleston), South Carolina.  A little over an hour into my journey the right-rear tire blew out on my car which normally would not have been too much of a problem.  I pull over on the side of the interstate in the middle of nowhere to change the tire.  I get out the jack and have the car about 2/3 of the way up when the handle on the jack breaks off.  Lovely. Just lovely.  After trying for about 30 minutes of trying to flag someone over waving at traffic passing by using only the light from my cell phone I gave in and called my roadside assistance people.  I hesitated on calling them in the beginning because I thought they would take forever to get there.  About 15 minutes after getting off the phone with them a South Carolina State Trooper pulls up behind me and lets me use his jack.  Within 4 minutes I had the old tire off, the new tire on and was back on my way.  Great way to start the day. I still managed to get there by the 10:00am.
