Just to fill you in a bit..
I’m Jordan Cartwright, and cavok.com has been a pet project since the year 2000. Much has changed since the near-ending of the world and much will change as we move toward the next end-of-the-world (Hollywood would have us believe it’s 2012, but who’s counting really?)
I’m a computer guy by trade, and a world traveler by heart. To top it off, I have an all-consuming passion for photography (particularly industrial and post-industrial work).
After years of toiling in the northern Canadian climes, I formed Dromedary Photography and I have expanded to provide a wide range of photographic and new-media consulting services for environmentally and socially responsible clients in Western Canada and abroad. I’ve since returned to the frozen north to enable me to further some personal projects, but I will again return to photography when the details are sorted..
This blog will eventually contain the archives of the original CAVOK.com (a beastly creation built in archaic ASP with content pulled from an access database), and will most likely contain more photography than anything as we progress past the year 2011.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading, and to than all of those who have encouraged me to keep posting over the years. I hope the new incarnation of cavok will provide you with as much joy as it has given me to create the content!
Also, in case you’re wondering cavok does have significance.
Ceiling And Visibility OKay.
When I was learning to fly, CAVOK meant a day without clouds and a beautiful flight wherever I ended up. This grew in to a metaphor on the lifestlye I wanted to lead. You see, blue skies and sunshine are always available, it’s just that sometimes they’re above the clouds. It’s always sunny above the clouds.
Thanks for reading!

Jordan Cartwright is… Well, um, a lot of things. Most of them are even good.
currentlycontinually seeking a definition for myself that inspires, enlightens and enriches the lives of others. This is long-term work in progress.
Jobs I’ve held run from busboy to bartender, computer guy to directional driller, photographer and tour guide too.. Rarely do I ever identify myself by a job title though.
Over the past ten or twelve years, I’ve traveled through some 34 countries and always relish the opportunity to do things that are out of the ordinary.
On this site, you’ll find musings about photography, the oil and gas industry, travel, robotics, electronics, and social responsibility among other bits of my life.
