2016 Schuyler, Virginia: Home Town of Earl Hamner, Jr (John Boy) Waltons
I have uploaded a couple of videos from Schuyler including the grand opening of the Waltons Mt Museum back in 1992 that my parents had attended & also the trip we took back in 2006. We went back up there this past 4th of July weekend with my grandfather & this is a video of the area that includes the Baptist church, original site of Ike Godsey's store, Waltons Mountain Museum which is located in the former elementary school & of course the childhood home of Earl Hamner, Jr. The Hamner house is a historic landmark now & is open to the public but the hours of operations are not posted anywhere. There was a gentleman on the porch of the shed (store where you buy tickets to tour the house) talking on his cell phone but there was a sign at the end of steps saying that they were closed so we didn't bother him. There is a video tour of the inside of the house on YouTube that somebody else filmed so you can search for that if you're interested in seeing what it looks like on the inside. To see the photos we have of Schuyler & the Waltons through out the years, go to my Facebook album at Below are the links to the other videos of mine that I mentioned in this description

ThyssenKrupp Elevators in Health Building at CPCC with BikegeekMTDX
Here are 2 side by side ThyssenKrupp Elevators similar but different with single slide and two speed doors plus one goes to "penthouse level" at "leveling speed" if you're on 5 and select P. The reason why it doesn't go to P from 5 at full speed is because the gap between the two landings is only a few feet apart. If you select P from the 4th floor or lower, it will travel to the floor at normal speed.Be sure to check out BikegeekMTDX's YouTube Channel & Facebook Page at

Thank You for 6 Million Views Dedicated to Diesel Ducy
Today, my YT channel went over the 6 million views mark. Thank you to all of my viewers and subscribers for this milestone. I would like to dedicate this video to Diesel Ducy because he is the one that got me to start my own YT Channel back in 2009 and he also recently sent me a 16th birthday package that had something in it that means a lot to me and I am so thankful that the Lord brought Andrew into my life. I first got to meet him in 2010 and through out the years we have become great friends and so I hope you enjoy this video special that celebrates that friendship. First we will take a trip down memory lane to 2009 of how my YT channel came to be and then we will end with the unboxing of the 16th birthday gift from Diesel Ducy. The iPhone vertical/horizontal sensor got stuck while filming that unboxing video and we didn't realize it until I started to edit it into this video celebration. The unboxing was filmed horizontally but the first part of it shows it vertical then eventually goes horizontally but when that happens the screen size gets kinda small but is still viewable. I know we could of have done a retake on unboxing but I wanted to include original unboxing video so I just went with what we had. I hope you all enjoy this video & thanks again to Diesel Ducy for just being you and to all my viewers and subscribers. You all are the best!2016-02-15 02:15:06
10 Year Dream Coming True: Foggy Point Light
This is a book that my dad has had the idea for about 10 years but didn't do anything with it until about 3 years ago when he sat down and started writing. It is finished and will be released this coming Wednesday, January 27th, 2016. Be sure to go to the ā€ˇFoggy Point Light Facebook & Twitter pages at so you can get all the latest details about this new book. You can also download the first chapter for free from the website at Foggy Point Light - Where the past is about to catch up with the future.
The lighthouse has stood on the south end of Green Island for almost a century and a half. It's been vacant for the last 8 decades, with few that know it's history even wanting to venture there. The entire south end of the island, including the lighthouse, has been virtually untouched for the past 20 years since the US Coast Guard sealed it off. And the island has had a peaceful existence for that time, almost forgetting the disappearances that occurred there almost 40 years ago. The island's tourists come and go each year, and the residents don't talk much about the mysteries surrounding the lighthouse anymore. It stands almost forgotten, covered over by time. Many feel that it's best left alone.
But the peace and tranquility that the island has enjoyed for so many years is all about to end. Dan Nelson, a technology executive from Cincinnati, has just purchased the lighthouse from the government, and is planning to restore it and live there with his family. He's read of the unexplained events that occurred around the lighthouse, and even heard warnings from local residents. Still, with several of his closest friends, and his family, he's determined to embark on this adventure and solve the mysteries surrounding the lighthouse. Will he discover the secrets that have been locked away for decades, or will he or his family become the next unexplained disappearance? Will he heed the warnings that he's been given? "Whatever you do, DON'T GO INTO THE FOG".

Comfort Inn & Suites in Pigeon Forge, TN
For my subscribers this Christmas Eve, I decided to upload several videos of the hotels we stopped at on our way out of Pigeon Forge, TN from our little mini Christmas get away. On Christmas day, I will be uploading some video footage from Dollywood's Smoky Mountain Christmas highlights as well as the suite tour of the suite we stayed in this time at Dollywood's Dream More Resort, It's kind of similar but different than the one we stayed in October for fall break which that one is featured in the video of the full hotel tour of Dream More already uploaded to my YT channel so stay tuned for more uploads today and tomorrow. My way of saying thanks for watching and I wish each and every one of you a blessed Christmas celebration with your family and friends. Take a moment to remember the ones that might be hurting this Christmas season from losing a loved one, are sick or serving our country elsewhere in the world. Christmas can be a hard time for some so please take a moment to say a prayer for these.2015-12-24 00:49:39

My YouTube Channel's 6th Anniversary Video Celebration
To celebrate my YT Channel 6th's Anniversary, I put together this video celebration which includes a mini recap of some memory lane moments from this hobby of mine plus an ecoshine car wash video and a Tesseract Adventure power point presentation project that a friend & I worked on together from our reading novel of A Wrinkle In Time at school this unit and I end off this video celebration with a ride on the Dover Elevator located in The Huntersville Inn and Suites Hotel (aka the former Sleep Inn hotel in Huntersville, NC) which this elevator may be in danger of being modded as they are renovating a lot of the hotel. Thanks to all my viewers and subscribers for joining me on this journey and I hope you enjoy this video celebration special. Special note: on power point presentation segment, there may be sometimes when you will need to pause the video to read the wording in a particular frame and then sometimes the power point video converter tended to move it slow but for the most part I think it came out alright in this video version. Our original project was in power point and my dad helped me find a video converter program to convert PP into video format so I could include it in this video celebration for ya'll. Again, thanks for watching!2015-11-30 00:49:38

Flashback Video from 2012
Going through some ole computer files today and came across this video clip which brought back a lot of memories. :)
Stay tuned for my 6th year YouTube Anniversary video which will be uploaded on the 30th. Not sure exactly what the video will be just yet, still trying to decide on a couple of things but it will have a new car wash that we haven't done before and maybe some other stuff as well....

Requested Video: Private Trolley Ride from Dollywood to Dream More Resort
Back in August, I had uploaded the Dream More Trolley Ride to Dollywood which was taken on opening day of the resort. Someone had emailed me on Facebook and asked if I had any footage of the trolley from Dollywood to DreamMore so on my fall break when we stayed at Dream More, we filmed the trolley ride from DW to DM. I also added a bonus beginning of our arrival at the Dollywood VIP entrance for Dream More Resort guests. On our trip back to Dream More we got a private ride back which I thought that was kind of neat. You also get a great view of the resort coming in the gates. Hope you enjoy it Todd.

Room Safe Reprogrammed After Being Locked Out
This is a bonus clip from my full hotel tour at Dollywood's Dream More Resort video but thought I would upload it as a single video also because some who are interested in safes might not be interested in watching a hotel tour. The previous occupants of the King Junior Suite we stayed in had not undone their safe combination so we had to get customer service to come and use his master reset tool to unlock the safe for us to use.2015-11-04 00:49:36
Full Hotel Tour of Dolly Parton's Dollywood's DreamMore Resort
Here is a full hotel tour of Dream More Resort located just next door to Dollywood and Splash Country in Pigeon Forge, TN which just opened this past summer. We have already uploaded several videos of it from opening day and now since we stayed here during my fall break, here is my complete full hotel tour of the resort which also includes a look at the hotel's restaurant, Song & Hearth which we ate there twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. Plus the DM Pantry, Game Room, Fitness Center, Indoor and outdoor pool areas. Also, enjoy both daytime and nighttime views of the resort. The hotel has an upper lobby and a lower lobby plus a whole wing of conference & meeting rooms. Dolly Parton's Time Capsule was put into it's special spotlight place in the resort while we were staying there so that is another highlight that is also included in this tour. A collection of photos we took of the resort can be found at For more info on this addition to the Dollywood Family, you can check out their website at http://dollywoodsdreammoreresort.doll...2015-11-04 00:49:35
Halloween Special: What a Hotel Looks Like When Power Goes Out
On one of my recent stays at a local Hampton Inn when my Pop-Pop flew in from Utah, there was a power outage which was a unique experience for me because that's never happen to me while I've stayed at a hotel before so we decided to film what the hotel looked like with just the emergency lights on. The outage lasted roughly about an hour give or take a few minutes I believe, not sure what caused it but it affected everyone for about a block down the street from what I heard. Special thanks to JP, John & Alex along with the Hampton Inns both in Cornelius and Huntersville for everything! You really know how to spread the Hamptonality! :)2015-10-31 00:49:35
Charlotte Douglas International Airport Hourly Parking Garage
Charlotte Douglas International Airport has been making some major renovations and adding new parking garages etc. We had to go pick up my grandfather at the airport late Friday night when he flew in from Utah. We parked in hourly parking deck and got to ride the new Schindler elevators. They are really nice and the nice blue lights on the parking garages give a super cool effect/2015-10-25 00:49:34

Hampton Inn & Suites Full Hotel Tour Dobson, NC
This Hampton & Suites full hotel tour video is dedicated to Jonathan Mayse which the dedication is mentioned towards the end of the video. Jonathan, thanks for following me on Facebook and I hope you like the video. This video features some of the pictures we took of this hotel back a couple of years ago and then video has footage of newer renovations done to the hotel. We stayed at this hotel when we attended Mayberry Days this year in Mt. Airy, NC. My dad had won tickets (on a Facebook Contest) to the Jeff & Sheri Easter (with Easter Brothers) concert at the Mount Airy High School during Mayberry Days so I put a few photos of that occasion within the video also (when we start the room tour) to commemorate that fact. This Hampton is a Connie Award Winner Hampton Inn & Suites which is pretty impressive! If you like Barney Fife on Andy Griffith Show, towards the end of the video there's a little preview of the talking Hallmark Christmas Ornament of Barney which I had in my pocket and accidentally had hit the play button so thanks for watching and hope you enjoy this hotel tour in Dobson, NC. For more info on this Hampton, check out this website at 19:51:35
