Video: First Night in the Casita

Just a short little video taken Thursday night, after picking up my Casita in Florida earlier in the day and starting the drive back to SC.  I used a flashlight and my old point and shoot camera didn’t pick it up very well so it’s mostly just audio.

Planning a Re-positioning Trip

May 4, 2015 |

Usually I don’t like to share a map of my big re-positioning trips before I get started. The biggest reason is because on these kinds of trips I don’t have time to stop and visit with people, and posting my route is almost guaranteed to bring comments from readers who live or are traveling along…

Two Days until Takeoff

September 12, 2012 |

    Congratulations! … and it’s perfectly okay to turn on the lights in that situation; there’s no way you’re going to run down both of the batteries.

    Congratulations again!

    For fun you could take your video footage, add new dialogue, and turn it into your very own Blair Witch Project! — “The Casita Haunting” or perhaps “Fiberglass Coffin: Trapped Inside”. Watch out Steven Spielberg!

      Yeah it looked okay using just the flashlight to the naked eye but not so much with the camera. I’ll do a good and proper video tour at some point. 🙂
