A Family Outing, a Train Ride

A little over a week ago, Joy, the girls, and I packed the Denali for another daycation. This time, our sights zeroed in on the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad and Museum. Who couldn’t have a good time on a train ride? The night prior was busy for me. Getting the GoPro’s charged, mounts and connectors…

Family Vacation to Roseburg Oregon

Over the east holiday, Joy, the girls, and I drove down to Oregon to spend time with family. Spending many summers and holidays in the Sutherlin / Roseburg area I’m pretty familiar with it. Now, having the drone, it gives me new ways to explore old haunts. One of the coolest things, from my perspective…

Eagle Falls, Another Washington Waterfall

I finally had a chance to put another video edit together, this time of Eagle Falls. My brother and I were taking pictures and filming video of a ski cabin and decided to stop on our way home. One of the places was this waterfall. Growing up, riding the ski bus, and driving this highway…

Filmed a Waterfall with the Drone (Deception Falls)

Ive been working my buns off with getting new listings and selling existing ones. Yet, the other day while photographing and filming an Stevens Pass ski cabin, the opportunity to film Deception Falls arose. Deception Falls is a smaller, lesser known, location on the Stevens Pass Highway (SR 2). Most people probably fly right by…

Drone Video of Deception Pass Washington State

Last night, I finally sat down at the computer long enough to finish the Deception Pass video. The views the Phantom captured are tremendous and wish the weather was better when filming. However, since Deception Pass is about an hour a way it might be a while before getting back out there. The edit was…

Filming the Granite Falls with a Drone

Since acquiring the drone, I’ve been thinking of more and more ways to use it. Either for work or play. For me, it is harder than it sounds. Ideas and ideas can spin through my mind but getting a video edited together can be a challenge all on its own. This video is from a…

Just Returned from Maui and Made a Home Movie

We’ve been home just over a week from Maui and have to say I miss the island/vacation life already. Not surprising, especially if you have visited the island before. The scenery is majestic, the food is exquisite, the water is warm and wonderful, the sunsets are breath taking, and the company we kept was second…

I’m On A Jet Plane

The day has finally come, Joy, the girls, and I are on a plane bound for Maui. Oh yea. A family vacation (well a vacation we as a family were on a plane at the same time) that has been a long time in the planning. Many people asked if I was taking the DJI…

Calico Ghost Town: A Day in the Life of a Miner

Beware, this post is scary scary scary. Syke! On the next adventure day was at Calico Ghost Town in eastern California. A total tourist trap; however, the town was super well done, had deep history preserved, and was a lot of fun to boot. We arrived, it wasn’t busy, and headed into town. The town…
