I had this post up for a short time then took it down to, ahem... clean up some inadvertent language problems that crept into the sound track. It's all mo' betta now. It took longer than I thought it would because I'm new to YouTube and how to edit videos on their site. That was an exercise in frustration. All done now and I've learned how to do some things with video, so maybe I'll post a few more as time permits.
One of the things that YouTube tries to do, is to help you present your video in its best light, so to speak. They asked several times, "We detected your video may be shaky. Would you like us to stabilize it?" Of course I refused. That was kind of the point of these videos. I wanted them to be shaky, no 'may be' about it.
Everyone likes a good carnival ride now and then. Here's one you're sure to. You can take it coming or going. You might think I'm talking to myself in the videos, but, as usual, I have a couple of the girls, Secret and Cindy, with me. They love going for rides, even if it does jar their teeth.
Road Trip Going and Coming
|Going to Town|
|Coming Back Home|
I have it on good authority that further south of us (Going to Town = North, Coming Back = South) that the road gets unimaginably worse, so keep that in mind as you watch one of the videos. Of course, if you've a desire, feel free to watch it in both directions - not at the same time, of course.
Pretty much the same thing can be said for a lot of the streets and roads all around town. It has become quite a bit harder to get around town. All the old short-cuts have been cut short, as in the road is probably blocked. Everything should be back to normal by, oh say, next rainy season or so.
