Otis Hydrofit Elevator At Hotel Florence in SC

Dewhurst or Otis Elevator At Caravelle Towers at Myrtle Beach, SC?
Not sure what kind of elevator this is but it tends to remind me of some type of Otis. Someone mentioned it could have Dewhurst US91 BB fixtures. I am enjoying Winter Break with an unexpected trip to the beach. We are enjoying family time but also doing a bit of last minute research for dad's upcoming novel, Ripples: Return To Foggy Point Light that will be released this spring. It is the 2nd installment of the science fiction / mystery book series that my dad is the author of. When we filmed this elevator at the Caravelle Towers, dad was thinking of having 2 of the characters in the novel stay at this hotel but in the end, he picked another hotel just a few blocks down from this particular hotel that fit it more with the setting of the scenes for the characters' stay at Myrtle Beach. Foggy Point Light is the 1st installment of the book series and is actually available in paperback or Kindle editions at Amazon. You can also order it online from Barnes & Nobles and Books-A-Million. For any of you who might be interested in the novel series and what it is about, you can get a free download of chapter one of Foggy Point Light and a free download of chapter 1 of Ripples: Return To Foggy Point Light at 04:15:20
Deluxe (Great Bear) Suite At Great Wolf Lodge
Winter break has started for me and a family tradition of staying at GWL is under way.

Retake Of 1971 Dover Elevator In Terrell Building At CPCC
On our recent trip back to CPCC to see the newly modernized (by Southern) Elevator in Central High building, which I was given a call station from that particular elevator by Cubecompmtdx (formerly known as Bikegeekmtdx) we took time to do a couple of retakes of some of the other great elevators at CPCC like this 1971 Dover that has a replacement controller and drive.

Splash Car Wash in Locust, NC
We went to the small country town of Locust to eat at one of our favorite little country restaurant. If you're interested you can check out my instagram photos or Facebook Page for photos from the Old School Fresh House restaurant. We saw this car wash and decided to try it. We got the cheapest wash as we didn't have the right change and the machine was either full or not working to give change so we got the $6 wash which is their cheapest wash. Most expensive car wash at this business is $102017-02-04 04:15:18

Hampton Inn & Suites Home2 Suites Combo in Huntsville, AL
Here is the video I know some of you have been waiting to see. Sorry for the delay in getting this full tour of the Hampton Inn & Suites and Home2 Suites Combo in Huntsville, AL uploaded. It seems I have misplaced some of the video footage we shot from here (that was on another camera card) so I finally decided to piece what footage I do have on the one camera card of this unique property into a full tour video for ya'll. I think the editing came out pretty well and gives a good impression of both hotels under one roof. If I do find the other camera card, I may upload some of that footage as well but I am happy how this one came out and hope you all like it too. Here is the link to see photos of this property on my FB page, Here is the link to see this property from the highway if ya'll haven't seen the preview video I had uploaded previously for this combo hotel set up 04:15:15

We celebrate with a full hotel tour of the Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Roanoke, VA on top of the Market Parking Garage with Andrew (AKA Dieselducy.) Special thanks to Tara Talerico who is the assistant GM for a great visit and tour. Also a big thanks to all my viewers & subscribes for a great 7 years. It's been an exciting journey of dreams coming true & discovering many friendships. You know, I gave Andrea Coon a statue from her favorite movie, the Wizard of Oz, one year for Christmas, that stated "It's not where you go (in life) , it's who you meet along the way." The Lord has truly blessed this YouTube Channel of mine in so many aspects that I could never even have imagined in my wildest dreams; and I am so thankful for that. The best compliment one can ever receive is to be told that they have been a blessing. I am truly honored & grateful to have been told in so many letters & emails written to me over these past 7 years that my YouTube channel has inspired and been a blessing to others. So thanks again to all my viewers & subscribers for being such a blessing to me. I appreciate all of you. I had a request from Kerry Miller to dedicate this Hampton Inn & Suites tour to him so here you go Kerry.

Pretty Fast Dover Elevator At Marriott In Huntsville, Alabama
This hotel is located very near the US Space & Rocket Center and after a fun German dinner under the Saturn V & exploring the exhibits, we stopped in here to check out their elevators. They were pretty busy so the footage here is basically one full ride and then a little bit of our 2nd ride (most of 2nd ride was too busy that didn't really make for a good video) No exterior photo as the one we took came out too blury and we didn't notice it at the time so we didn't get a retake on it.2016-11-21 00:12:33
Atlanta Airport MARTA Station Elevator with ems318
Here is another quick video from the meet up with Eric. We'll call this a double upload Sunday since I just uploaded our ride from Dunwoody to Lindbergh Center on MARTA a few mins ago.2016-11-20 00:12:31

For Sean Juth: Hampton Inn in Madison, Alabama
Sean Juth requested a shout out so here you go. While we were in Huntsville, AL over fall break, we took a short drive over to Madison, AL near the Huntsville Airport and discovered the Hampton Inn there had kind of a different lay out than most Hamptons. It looks like 2 separate buildings that have been joined together. I believe that it used to be something else and then was turned into a Hampton Inn. I thought we had more video footage from here but for some reason, I can't find it on the card that the elevator video is on so it might be on another card that I have misplaced for the moment. The elevator looks like it has been modded by Otis & I'm not sure what it was before then. Sean, maybe you know since you are in Huntsville area.2016-11-19 00:12:28

Hampton Inn in Columbia, TN Has An Otis Series 1 Elevator
Over fall break, we made a side trip to the town of Columbia, TN mainly for my mom who wanted to go eat at Marcy Jo's Meal House.

Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, GA with EMS318
It's November 1st and this month will mark my 7th Anniversary being on YouTube. I uploaded my first YT video back on November 30th 2009 and with November being known for reflections on what one is thankful for, I wanted to start off this month with a double feature for my viewers as my way of saying thank you for watching through out the years and I hope you enjoy the videos as much as I enjoy making them. The first upload today was the Hampton Inn & Suites in Hampton Cove (Huntsville, AL) & this 2nd upload is from the meet up with ems318 who is just one of many fellow YouTubers I have gotten to know over these last 7 years. Be sure to check out his channel, 17:03:19
