A natural cold spring park in Central Florida. Has a spring/swimming area that looks nice. Most of this video is from our 1.5 hour canoe paddle.

Getting over COVID, I apologize for the coughing.

I've missed being here and wanted to make a video. In this one I clean and replace the grips on my old Ruger, getting it ready for backwoods hiking.

The audio is occasionally out of sync. Don't think it has any major effect on what I'm showing. Also, sorry but I'm often off-frame with the gun. I set the camera up and didnt always stay within the frame in my exuberance. I've tried to correct for that with stills of what I'm describing.

A group of male turkeys (Toms) passed by our livingroom window. Two of them came close enough to video well.

The easiest way to identify a male turkey is the "beard" protruding from their chest.

Quarantine is boring. We're hoping to head for Florida in mid-January. ūü§ě

See you in a month +.

I hesitate to post this as some of the videos are out of focus. Did my best, hope it's somewhat entertaining. ūüĆ≤‚õĄūüéÖūüĆ≤‚ėÉÔłŹ

This church is part of the Gateway Arch, NP. Built in 1834. While we were visiting, a ray of light illuminated the painting of Jesus over his heart area.

Prettiest church I've ever been to. Worth a visit if only to see the art.

This was actually a very good NP. Well worth the visit.

This is a small mountain-top park near our new home. Sorry we didn’t know about this park until after all the fall leaves fell. There's actually a lot of history to this area and park that I was not aware of.

I may come back here next Autumn to make another video.

We've moved to a house in the Catskill mountains and are no longer living in the RV.

This is trailcam footage from late August to Mid-October 2020 at the camp/land in Preston Hollow, NY.

Many of the structures & tours were shut down due to the pandemic; also, we only a few hours to stop at this NP. This is therefore a cursory look only unfortunately.

Only a portion of the cave complex was open for our visit due to the pandemic. This portion lacked dramatic formations and was primarily about the human history in the caves. Carlsbad Caverns, NP is much more impressive.

Caves are difficult to video with a cellphone and the caves were poorly lit with no flash allowed. Tried my best.

This is one of the newest US National Parks. Similar to Indiana Dunes, NP this park is fragmented and stretches out over a large area.

Very well-maintained and plenty of biking/hiking trails. This would be a nice place to relax for 3-4 days.

The American victory at Saratoga was the turning point of the American Revolution.

There are 10 major stops along the roadway which stretches for almost 10 miles through the battlefield. It will take about 2-3 hours to see each of the 10 major stops.

The Visitor's Center was closed due to the pandemic. Here's the park website if you choose to check out the park yourself: https://www.nps.gov/sara/index.htm

Visiting a good friend (84 yo) at Long Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of NY. Known for his pearls of wisdom, I was lucky to be able to capture one of his impromptu speeches.

Often his monologues are framed using classic Disney movies and characters.

The audio is originally from a white noise recording that I've added effects emphasizing bass & reverb. I've also added a subtle higher pitched drone.

I've put (what I hope are) relaxing pictures of mine along with the audio

The cornerstone was laid in 1920 and the Basilica was completed in 1959. Music in this video was recorded by me live at the Basilica.

Second video from our DC visit.

Visiting friends in MD, Ill have a few videos from DC.

The channel has made it to 100 subscribers. It may appear as a small accomplishment to some but it amazes me!

I originally shot this video in 2018 and I was never happy with it. This is a re-edited version.

This is a shrine to four saints in Upstate NY. Two of the saints were martyred and killed by Native Americans. Interesting history.

Beautiful grounds. Amazing coloseum style church.

I think if I'm going to make videos like this, I need a good video camera. The cellphone has limits.

Videos sped up, 150 - 350%.

These birds fascinate me.
