I'll be traveling to Maine as of today as I embark on a three week Hiking, camping/road trip filming expedition. My primary focus is to not only relax/detox my soul but also refine the use of my DJI Drone and refine my nature filming skills. I'll have my iPhone, T8i cannon, Wide angle lens, and GoPro 5 with me.
My trip will take me through seven national parks starting in Bangor Maine and winding down all the way through Boston Massachusetts where I will decompress for two days with a trip to the Aquarium and hopefully eat some good seafood. I’ve been planning this trip for a year and a half now and honestly the trip feels like work rather than a “vacation” but I’ve given up on traveling anywhere without wanting to take filming gear. I just can’t not do it.
I won’t be editing much of any of the footage I take other than processing it for stock footage. I'll be posting Blogs as I travel and hopefully I won't get into too much trouble out there. I hope I meet a bigfurt. heehee.

When people hear about my travels they initially get excited until they realize I travel alone on these long trips and I get a sense of fear/anxiety from them about picturing little old me out there in the world by myself. So I wanted to go over a typical set of questions I usually get:
Why do you travel alone?
I don’t know anyone who finds living out of a rental car and a tent for three weeks a worthwhile event. Plus being alone means no one has to be exposed to my awful personality.
Will you have protection?
I am typically armed. I have all things for making kool-aid come out of stuff.
What about wild animals?
Most animals you see you’d have to go way out of your way to find them. They typically stay out of sight.
Isn't it dangerous to travel all by yourself?
It is and it isn't, but I’ve been camping/hiking my entire life and no stranger to traveling. I am an adult thank you.
What will you eat????
