Explore an old ghost town
From geekology, This is a beautiful quadrocopter tour of Bodie, California. In the late 1800's and early 1900's Bodie was a prosperous gold-mining town. By the 1940's it was a ghost town. Will business ever pick back up? It's unlikely. Will my mom ever remember to pick me back up from school? Also unlikely -- it's been almost 14 years. But if there's one thing made-for-TV movies have taught me, it's never give up hope. Or is it all online-daters are actually serial killers? My point is this: never give up on your dreams. Don't let anybody tell you that you can't accomplish something. If we can put a man on the moon, you can be a famous movie star or something equally batshit impossible. Dare to dream. Dare to double dare. Double dare to physical challenge.
