Happy Fathers Day

To all the dads out there and the moms pulling double duty, I hope it’s a good day. My dad is one of my heroes. I wouldn’t be half the man I am today without him. I owe so much to him and I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to repay his years…

My new GoPro mount

I’ve been using a painters pole for the Go Pro and it works great. I wanted something that would allow me some more actions with the camera and at the same time give a stable platform to film from. A quick trip to Menards for some 1″ pvc pipe, a 1/4″ bolt, 1/4″ nuts, some…

A perfect day(s)
