Hey guys,

Sorry for going AWOL, but after the May long weekend, I was basically exhausted, & every time I remembered to post something here, I ended up forgetting, or got started doing something else & then remembered after I had shut down my PC for the night.

I’ve tried posts before from my phone, but the PC is honestly a lot easier.

Anyways, May long went well, other then the fact for the first time in a while, the water wasn’t turned on yet, because of the frost still in the ground in some sections, but the section we were in was thawed completely, but they basically refused to turn the water on until all sections could have their water turned on, because it “wouldn’t be fair to all in the park”. While I do understand that, I also remember that in the past years, before I started doing security with a friend, whether it was fair or not never mattered. They turned on the water for the areas that were thawed, & if a spot wasn’t thawed, they left that water off until it was thawed.

Definitely not as hectic as 2017, when there was a storm, that ended up making us leave the park & come home for the night. We’ve had a few strong winds this week, & evidently from a Facebook post by the park director, trees did fall down, but nothing to major. No damage to any trailers this time, but based on the pictures, the same people from 2017 who had their trailer moved out of their lot, to allow a fair sized tree to be cut down (had fell over in the storm winds in 2017), had a smaller tree land on their trailer, so their trailer will possibly have to be removed from the lot again to safely remove either just the part of the tree that fell, or the entire tree altogether.

On a positive note, 2017 May long, there was a tree in front of our trailer, that we’re positive if it ever got uprooted, it would take the roof over our trailer with it due to where its roots are. Well, when we opened our trailer one day before I went out, the chainsaw was brought along to cut it down ourselves, & during the process, dad noticed that tree had already been removed, so thank you goes to the park for doing that.

Anyways, on other notes, my birthday was June 7/2018. Didn’t get many things, but being 22, I got some DVDs, Amazon gift card, & a prepaid credit gift card as well, so it allows me to get what I would like.

On a slightly less positive note, my friend & brother (not blood related in any way, but you’d swear we are), will be leaving for school elsewhere for at least 2 years, on June 27, so sadly we won’t be doing security at all on Canada Day weekend, but to my understanding he will be returning sometime before August long weekend, to gather the rest of his belongings, & to come work the music festival out at the park that weekend, & then on August 26 (I think) he will head back, where he will stay for 2 years at least. At this time he doesn’t know when or if he will be returning after the 2 years. But, a while back it was mentioned that if I still have the trailer at the park next year & depending on how he is doing financially, he may come out just for working the same music festival next year, if it will be happening again, which even though it’s over a year away, I’m safely assuming it will be.

On the festival note, since last year was the first year for it, they have learned a few things, & per one of their Facebook posts, festival volunteers will receive complimentary camping passes (if needed), complimentary festival/ concert area access (obviously), t-shirts & meal vouchers this year, which is definitely better then last year (no t-shirts or meal vouchers at all), but honestly, I will only believe the t-shirt & meal voucher parts when I see it for myself (no disrespect intended).

Anyways, I don’t know if you still read my blog since I started it, but, while I’m not that happy that you will be leaving, I honestly wish you the best in your chosen field at school & with your news company, & do hope you will return here after the 2 years. Hopefully at some point, if you’ve found people to cover the news area here, I will have things setup in such a way, that I can possibly join & contribute to the company as well, & do my best to cover stories out in the areas around me.

Anyways, that’s all for now at 11:10 PM… Until next time… 😛

Hey guys,

Big apology for being AWOL this long. I never did get a chance to upload the pics from the Motorshow I mentioned in my last post.
Anyways, not much has happened. Ordered a few things from Amazon to prep for this May long weekend of camping.

Also, ended up ordering a few things for home as well, that may get reviewed later.

Anyways, I surprisingly don’t have much to say, considering I haven’t posted in almost a month. This is basically just a post to let you know I’m still alive.

Also, starting on May 17/2018 to May 28/2018, I will likely not be seen online anywhere, & if I am online, it likely won’t be for very long. This will be because I’ll be out camping with a friend & doing security for that period of time.

Another post after the weekend, will come [b]if[/b] I don’t get a chance to post while I’m out there.

Anyways, that’s all for now at 10:20 PM… Until next time… 😛

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 😛
