Hi guys,

Been a while since I posted.
Just a small update post.

Went to the Motorshow this past Saturday (April 14/2018) & managed to get about 347 pics. I will be uploading them to my Imgur sometime this week & providing a link in a new post when I do upload them.

Anyways, other then going to the motorshow, not much else has happened…

That’s all for now at 8:44 PM…. Until next time…. or the first edit 😛

Hi guys,

As you probably figured out, posting my normal one post per week, completely slipped my mind last week.

Anyways, not much has happened lately. I’m trying to pick things out on Amazon for Airsoft, & this camping season, that I want to order. However, Amazon is screwing me around, because the stock of some items keeps changing from hour to hour.

I’ve also recently started researching/ planning for later on in the future, for some trips & such, which I do hope will be possible.

Anyways, that’s basically all for now at 10:15 PM.

Until next time… or the first edit 😛

Hi guys,

Not much has happened recently, other then attending a Boat & Sport show near me on Saturday. I managed to get about 143 pictures during the event. However, majority of the pictures are not showing boats. I mainly went there for the ATVs, Side by Sides, etc.

I uploaded all 143 pics to an Imgur Album. A few of the pics aren’t in the same order they were taken, bu majority of them are. Please do not re-use the pics in any way, without giving proper credit. In fact, please do not use any of my pics without giving proper credit.

Please note any & all pictures I take from events I attend, will have their own Album on my Imgur Profile. Descriptions for any album can be found by opening the album, & scrolling directly to the bottom. Album descriptions will typically say what the pics are.

That’s all for now at 1:20 AM… Until next time… or the first edit 😛

Hi guys,

Nothing much to report that’s new.

Been debating about getting into the whole news/ stringer thing, since I now have a decent camera to do so with.

However, getting the “necessary” hardware for my vehicle, that will help me do that “job” will be difficult because, at some point Police, EMS & Fire will be upgrading to digital communications, & the scanners that will allow me to listen to those (assuming they’re not encrypted) run about $658.00 on Amazon, for a mobile/ base version. Handheld ones go for about $484.59, which is cheaper, [b]but it’s handheld, & I do have plans to get some sort of console in my truck, to allow the installation of a scanner of some sort, & possibly two way radios.

Anyways, that’s all for now at 1:15 AM. Until next time… or the first edit 😛

Hi guys,

Sorry for not posting for a while. With things being busy-ish, it completely blanked my mind until now.

Not much has happened recently. I have done shoutouts recently in my Instagram posts & on my IG story, for people who have like bombed me.
Please note, while most of the shoutouts have been done shortly after I received the likebomb, the shoutout can come up to 24 hrs later, so please be patient.

If I start doing videos on YouTube & such, now that I have that Canon PowerShot camera mentioned in my last post, I will do my best to try remember to give shoutouts to anyone who has likebombed me in the past, & anyone who does in the future. However, since I do lack a decent area to record the videos, if I decide to start doing them, they likely won’t start until some point after the snow is gone, since majority of the recording will likely take place outside.

I do have plans for the PowerShot, including getting a dedicated bag for it, along with a shotgun mic, LED Light, wireless mics (for my YouTube videos), etc. which would all be carried in the bag for the camera. I may get a bag for the camera, that’s dedicated to just the camera & nothing else, except maybe an extra battery, & any extra SD cards. I do also plan on getting some sort of cases for my SD cards. With all things though, that will take time & money. I do already have a 32GB SD Card, dedicated for the camera, since previously, I was just using a 16GB card that was from my JVC Camcorder.

I did lookup wireless mics a long time ago, right after I got my camcorder, & the selection available on Amazon, has changed a lot. I remember finding wireless mics, that were only rated anywhere from 2-3 stars out of 5. Now, I see a lot of good quality ones, including some from the same brand I found a long time ago. I hope to get at least 2 Transmitter packs, & have my eye on a decently rated set, with one receiver (plugs into the camera) & 2 transmitters (pack with the actual mic, that clips on the person’s belt), for about $389.95 to $399.44 CAD. Only disadvantage is, it looks like it doesn’t have an individual transmitter available, or just one transmitter & receiver. So, it’s looking like if I end up needing more mics (backups, spares, etc.) I’m going to end up ordering another 2 transmitters & 1 receiver, which I guess could be good, because then I’ll have a backup receiver, or a receiver to lend to a friend, if they needed one.
There is a brand available on Amazon (Saramonic) that has 1 receiver & 2 transmitters, for $589.95 & does have an individual transmitter available, but the individual transmitter is around $188.31 CAD… so, I might just stick with the original one I had my eye on for $389.95 to $399.44, &

On an airsoft note, sadly not to many updates in regards to airsoft, except I do intend to get a pair of Tru-Spec 24/7 pants, & do have a specific setup in mind for my duty belt, that will hopefully work with the Tru-Spec pants, along with my security duty belt.

Anyways, that’s all for now at 1:05 AM…. Until next time… or the first edit 😛

Hi guys,

Not much has happened this week.
As mentioned in my last post, I’ve been doing shoutouts on my Instagram, for people who have done a like bomb.
Also this week, I was going through Facebook pages I manage, & came across one I made a long time ago, dedicated to Knight Rider.
It has about 2,150 likes/ followers on it, so I ended up making a post, giving a small update about the page itself, & then a big thank you to every single follower on the page. I never thought when I made that page originally it would ever reach that many likes.

The entire post can be found here. It’s been pinned to the top of the page anyways.

I am hoping to try start doing YouTube videos on airsoft things & such, along with reviews on other things such as radios, radio accessories, bags, etc. once I get a good camera, that can support things, such as an external mic (shotgun mic, or wireless mic, etc.), lighting, etc… I do have a JVC Camcorder but after looking it up on Google, since it doesn’t have a dedicated “Mic” port, or a “shoe” mount on the top, where one could attach the receiver for a wireless mic, it does not appear it will support a wireless mic system at all. It would support a tripod, but that’s all.

I do know of a Canon T1i being sold, but due to the fact it’s LCD only serves for previewing pictures after they’re taken, & does not actually show what the camera is seeing, I would need to get an external LCD Monitor of some sort, so I could see exactly where I am in the shot, make sure the camera is seeing everything, etc…. I do also know of a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS being sold, which would be perfect for doing the videos, since it has the flip LCD screen. Personally, I am between the PowerShot & T1i, because the T1i needing an external LCD Monitor of some sort, would actually allow me to easily see where I am in the shot, whereas the PowerShot & its flip out LCD is small enough, that depending on how far away the camera has to be, I may or may not be able to see where I am in the shot, & see if it’s seeing everything I need it to see…

Anyways, I’m hoping some further info/ decisions can be made on that aspect in the next few days. I happen to already have a DSLR backpack I got from Amazon a while ago, so I don’t need to worry about getting a bag to carry either camera. I do need to get a tripod, which I plan on getting from Amazon…

Anyways, that’s all for now at 12:18 AM… Until next time…. or the first edit 😛

Hi guys,

Been a bit quiet on the blog lately, so I figured I’d do a post today.
Last few days have been quiet in terms of getting things done, but my Instagram last 1-2 days has been flooded with life notifications of recent posts, & even some posts I made just after I made the IG Account. It all started with one individual liking a whole bunch of my posts, & then me screenshotting it & tagging him in the post, basically saying “Thanks for the love! :)”. That lead to another 2 posts involving me being flooded with notifications, but but involved 4 people total instead. They all got a shoutout in a post, & then got another shoutout saying “Thanks for the love :)” on my IG story. It’s obvious I’ve decided to start that.

Anyways, onto today’s events. Today, I did attend the 38th RV Expo & Sale at the Expo Centre. As I said on my IG story (if you follow me), shoutout to Ethan Mason, for attending & lending the Canon Powershot to me to take some pics, just had to supply my own SD Card. Going through the pics now, I evidently did not even make 50 pics, but was still a good RV Show. The shows are basically the same every year, but I still go.

Sadly, at 3 PM, had to call it a day & head home. Either way, the RV show was great, & the love from IG followers is also great. I will likely be attending their Boat & Sport show in March as well.

Anyways, that’s all for now at 9:15 PM… Until next time… 😛
