GoPro Hero 6 Review

GoPro Hero 6 Black
The GoPro Hero 6 is defiantly a mixed bag of what it is good at and what it is not.  As long at you realize that and use it for the right purpose, you will not be disappointed.  I find it to be a very capable camera and an essential part of my kit.  What this camera does extremely well is stabilized video in good lighting without the need for a gimbal.  This cuts down on the amount of gear I need to pack on trips.  This is great for B-Roll and action shots.  Also the fact that you do not need a separate case for it to be waterproof makes it all the better.  
Of course the downside to the waterproofing is that the audio does suffer. The audio is not as horrendous as some may make it out to be and it is far better than my hero 4 black when it is in the waterproof housing. For this reason I tend to use my iPhone 8 plus for shots where I need audio, like when i need to talk to the camera. You can get good audio from the GoPro but you need to buy an adapter that is around …

Stanley Coffee Press Review

Image
This is my review of the Stanley Coffee Press.  This press is perfect for camping and I have found it to work incredibly well.  It allows you to heat the water right in the pot and then mix your grounds and then press.  It keeps the things you need to carry light and would be good for backpacking as well as car camping.  I do not like the coffee from a percolator much, but do use a french press at home, so this was a perfect fit.  I can definitely recommend this product and give it 5 stars!  See the review below!









Short trip to Jacksonville

Image
Today we took a trip to Jacksonville Florida to meet up with my Mom and Jean.  It was a short trip to spend some time together and check out the city. We did not find much to do, but we also did not research a lot either.  There seems to be plenty to see here and may be worth a future trip with a few days and more planing.  Here  is our trip video.  Hope you enjoy.
