David P. Jordan was born and raised in unincorporated Peoria, Illinois. For years he struggled with the burden of having to cross railroad tracks whenever needing to get to church, school or work. Not helping matters was living near the flight path of airliners arriving and departing the [Greater] Peoria (International) Airport. Such life-long “transportation trauma” prevented Mr. Jordan from living a normal life until one day in January 2006 when he discovered blogging. Today, he now lives in Peoria County and enjoys sharing his passion with the internet-connected community.
