New 256GB Flash = more videos posted

Nearly out of storage space on the computer I use to edit videos, I stopped.  Importing new material and editing.  That was months ago.  The footage comes in faster than I can edit sometimes then it gets behind.  An average of 75 videos each day, five days a week.  It can be overwhelming.

As happened in recent times.  A fantastic combination of an injury, pain and no time.  Thousands of videos piled up like that.  I could store them for later.  My problem with that is what do I store them on.  I’ve had bad experiences with removable hard drives in the past.

That doesn’t leave me much to choose from.  I like portability, accessibility and reliability to be my priorities.  Feels like I’m left with usb flash.  After a few experiments over the last few months I’ve settled for storage on flash storage.  They don’t get used often.  Only when I’m copying new files then they sit in a storage box.

After a recent purchase of a 256GB flash was I able to clear out all of my old projects.  During the clean up I found many old unfinished projects.  Now that I have the time and space I was able to edit another 9 videos.  It is really a good feeling to be able to get this stuff done.

Here are a few of those projects below.  A couple minute video of a squirrel having a good time.  Palm fronds making contact with an electric line, the sounds are scary.  A knight anole hides from me after I discovered it on a palm tree.  A great way to waste a few minutes and distract the mind. -13

Worm bin notes: Life is good in the bin

Update 6 for bins 2 & 3.  Bin 2 is progressing along nicely.  The worms from bin 3 seem to help keep the balance so I can put an equal amount of waste in.  It appears healthy and moist.  I may add more worms from 3 later but am still watching the consumption rate.

Bin 3, doesn’t seem to have any noticeable difference in the consumption rate since I moved the worms.  The soil is moist.  There’s an abundance of the smaller insects that usually inhabit the bins.  Everything seems to be fine.

I did notice a roach on the cardboard when I was editing the video and have yet to locate it.  Here I go again with the roaches.  I haven’t introduced anything questionable to the bin lately so there hasn’t been much to note.  I’ll keep taking before/after stills and video to track the consumption rates, and when I introduce a questionable item that I haven’t filmed before.  Time to hunt for roaches. -13

 

Video Update 6 Below

Dash Cam: Fisher Island Ferry

Fisher Island Ferry.  It’s not exactly what I’d like it to be.  Was hoping to get a front row seat but haven’t over the last several years.  In this video we get a good view anyway.  I’ve been surprised how difficult it is to get in front.  It’s all about timing.  There has been other footage but the water was so rough that when the playback speed was increased it made it impossible to watch.

In this video we get smooth water and a decent view.  On the return trip there is I think a Netherlands flagged wood mast ship.  I couldn’t figure out which ship is was and am hoping someone will be able to identify it and share it with us.  Until we have better footage this will be it for the ferry. -13

 

Dash Cam: Ocala to Naples in less than 25 minutes.

Spring cleaning? Something like that.  Found a file in a place it wasn’t supposed to be.  Thought I had placed it someplace else.  Maybe that explains why I couldn’t find it and hadn’t finished it before now.

The footage is of a few historic homes in Ocala, painted horse art, an amazing after accident scene where the tires are knocked off a semi truck trailer.  Then accelerated speed footage to the I-75 / Naples exit.  Was hoping to get video all the way to Broward county but night set in and that was that so I cut it off at the last Naples exit heading south.

The video starts with the accident that is family friendly.  No guts, no gore. -13

 

Dash Cam: After Irma Part 1 & 2

South Florida Driving 101 has two videos that feature storm damage and after effects from Hurricane Irma.  Downed trees and power lines, car size debris piles, repair crews, property damage and carnage.  Not much in the way of stupid drivers but it does show driving difficulties presented after a storm by downed power lines and trees.  They often block roadways making chainsaws and cable cutting equipment a necessity. -13

 

 

Dash Cam: Latest South Florida Crazy Videos

Here it is!  After a very long break from the dash cam videos South Florida Driving 101 is now editing and posting videos.  There have been multiple problems over the last few months.  Most of the issues have been addressed.  Been looking at cameras over the last week and cannot make up my mind yet.  Going to watch more videos on YouTube before I decide.  There were three Cobra CDR 840’s in rotation at the beginning now there is only one malfunctioning camera hanging by a thread.  More in another video/blog post soon.

Drivers 72(below) contains hurricane Irma damage, metro mover, flying objects, pedestrian issues, Miami skyline at night, dangerous objects on the roadway and the usual bad driving habits.

 

Drivers 73(below) has the little Red Bull car, a guy takes a bike for a ride, pedestrians playing traffic-roulette, merge madness, selfish cut offs, jet passing by, drawbridge runner, driver can drive but can’t read the signs.

 

Drivers 74(below) is full of selfish drivers cutting off everyone or taking stupid risk to avoid turning around at the next exit, a jet takeoff, a night time reminder of why we dash cam.
