Do I travel a lot?

I’m not a road warrior by any means, but I do a fair amount of air travel both domestic and international every year. I live in San Diego and have family spread around in Minnesota, Florida, and Japan so racking up the miles is relatively easy.

Why is this blog named “SANspotter”?

San Diego International Airport (SAN) is my home airport. And I’ve been “spotting” (a very British term for watching or photographing) aircraft ever since I can remember. I’m not photographing airplanes much anymore these days, but I thought the combination of the two items was appropriate for my blog title.

Why do I write trip reports and airline reviews?

Basically, I’m a travel nerd. I love to document my trips so that I’ll be able to remember the little details far into the future.  Long before I even had this blog, I was writing about my travels in the form of a Microsoft Word doc on my computer. So yeah – it’s something I really enjoy doing.

Why am I interested in airplanes?

Good question. I’m not sure where the interest came from, but it’s always been there. The silly thing is that I was never interested in fighter jets like all the other boys in school when I was growing up – for me, DC-10’s and L-1011’s were far more interesting.

What kind of photo equipment do I shoot with?

Currently, I’m shooting with an iPhone 12 Pro and a GoPro Hero 8. That’s it. Nothing fancy.
