A Hybrid (Marriott Dual Brand) of Fairfield Inn & Suites / Residence Inn
As most of ya'll know, this is a new trend in hotel brands. This one is located in Charlotte NC. It opened in December 2016 & both hotels have Schindler 3300s. I believe they share an outdoor pool and patio area as well as a very nice fitness center. Each has their own business centers and lobbies. For photos we took and for more info you can check their website at 06:47:57
Another New Holiday Inn Express - This one in Fort Mill, SC
This is very similar to the new HIE & Suites in Charlotte, the floor plan is a bit different but the style is the same. Both have Schindler elevators. Charlotte has indoor pool and Fort Mill has outdoor pool.2017-08-09 06:47:56
Happy Birthday Andrew AKA Dieselducy
Andrew, you are and have been a great friend and I hope your day is as special as you are. For this video, we start out at a brand new Courtyard by Marriott in Kingsley Center located in Fort Mill, SC. This Courtyard has a mill factory theme with huge vintage photos on each upper floor by the elevators which is kind of neat. After the elevators at Courtyard, stay tuned for a trip down memory lane from my video archives which includes a couple of firsts for Dieselducy such as his first Otis Series 6 ride and operating his first variable speed vintage Otis elevator. We end with a bonus clip at the then Dieselducy Museum of Awesomeness with Cannycart back in 2012. For photos of the Courtyard hotel at the beginning of the video check out my FB photo album at

Nice new hotel with Schindler Elevators2017-08-06 06:47:55
Norfolk Southern Train with Railroad Crossing
This is for all the train lovers including ems318 and Dieselducy. Thought this might make for a nice Sunday afternoon upload. This is a Southern Norfolk Train Engine I believe. We saw it while we were out after lunch with my grandfather near the UNC Charlotte Campus. We get the railroad crossing gates going up at end of video for the ones who like to see that as well.2017-08-06 06:47:55
View Of Potomac River From George Washington's Mount Vernon Porch
On our tour of George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate, we took a short video clip of the Potomac River from the porch. I have uploaded most of the photos from my Washington Trip to my FB photo album. If you're interested in seeing the photos of Mount Vernon, click this link here that will take you to that particular photo album 06:47:54
Clockwork Machine in Old Post Office Clock Tower Washington DC
This is what makes the clock in the clock tower at Old Post Office Building work. For my video on clock tower click this link for photos we took check out my FB photo album at t Office Clock Tower is open to the public free of charge. It is located in what is also now known as The Trump International Hotel in Washington DC (or TrumpDC) There is a museum about the old post office that looks like they are still in the process of adding things for that. Visitors ride 2 elevators to get to the 12th floor viewing area where you can view the machine that runs the clock in the tower and also get great views of downtown Washington DC including Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, part of The White House etc Bonus Views towards end of video that shows the elevator through a glass door passing one of the guest floors of the hotel & view of elevator from the lobby of the hotel going up to the 9th floor. For more information about this historic building & tower you can visit these websites listed below:

Hampton Inn & Suites Washington Dulles International Airport
This is where we stayed for most of our vacation for our Washington DC trip (except for the last night which we stayed at TrumpDC hotel which I thought was a neat way to finish out the trip) The pool and hot tub was a very nice way to relax and unwind after long walking days in Washington DC. I liked the fact that the pool was open til 11 instead of the usual 10pm and the fact that we had it to ourselves for both nights that we stayed. There was a baseball team staying at this Hampton while we were there and I think they were busy with their conference so it was a very successful stay for the most part. The only problem we had was with the AC which would go to a preset temperature during the day which made the room a bit stuffy when we got back and the AC had a hard time cooling the room down for our preference so that was a major drawback for us but otherwise a good hotel.2017-07-29 06:47:53
Exploring Trump International Hotel In Washington DC
In this video, we take a ride on several more elevators including the ballroom area elevator, the tiny elevator that takes you from 8th guest floor to 9th guest floor plus a view of the decorative elevator shaft coverings. Also included is our tour of the Junior Suite we stayed in. We got the Junior Suite as I am a rising junior in high school. This stay was a birthday present to me that I got back in February but due to schedules, I couldn't redeem it until this summer. It was well worth waiting for. We chose July as it is America's Birthday month and this is located in the nation's Capital city and the hotel is in the current President's family business. I also included some photos around the hotel and also of our in room dinning table set up, the treat tray that was waiting for us after we had taken a walk down Pennsylvania Ave to get a glimpse of the White House The staff that did the turn down service left a John F Kennedy Quote card which read "Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." which I thought was a great quote. You also will see photos of the Business and Fitness Centers. The hotel has a spa so no pool photo to show. I will be uploading photos to my FB soon. I will add link to that album when it is uploaded which will probably be sometime tomorrow. For more information about this hotel, you can check their website 06:47:53
Electric Sheers At The Trump International Hotel In Washington DC
This is a preview of our junior suite at Trump International Hotel. We start out with street view at night with me at our window waving and closing the electric sheers and then we show the view out our window during the daytime hours which is of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Building. Stay tuned for a full tour of our Junior Suite coming soon plus more elevators from TrumpDC2017-07-27 06:47:52
Hampton Inn & Suites In Woodstock VA
Another Stop we made to stretch our legs for a moment before heading on down the road on our trip to Washington DC. This was a very neat Hampton to explore.2017-07-26 06:47:51
ThyssenKrupp Elevators At Hampton Inn South Fredricksburg VA
Not sure what the iPhone did with this recording. On viewing it was horizontal but the video counter was on the side instead of top like it normally is. When putting it through editing software, the video is horizontal as you can see, I guess the iPhone camera was stuck in-between portrait and landscape modes. This was one of our stops on the way home from Washington DC. We had to get more gas for the car and get some dinner for ourselves so after we did that, we took a few moments to explore this Hampton before hitting the road once again.2017-07-26 06:47:51
US Elevator At Hampton Inn In Staunton VA
We stopped off in Staunton VA for an early supper at the Depot Grill which was very tasty and before we hit the road again to Washington DC Area we explored the Hampton Inn there.2017-07-25 06:47:50
Elevators At The Trump International Hotel In Washington DC
These are the set of elevators near our Junior Suite. This stay was a birthday present given to me back in February but due to schedules and all, I couldn't redeem it til this month. We had spent the day at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate and then checked in to the current President's family hotel for our last night in DC which I thought was a neat way to round out this exciting first trip to our nation's capital city. Stay tuned for a tour of this historic hotel which used to be the Old Post Office in Washington.2017-07-25 06:47:50
Elevator At Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Washington DC
This was a pretty nice elevator. We had walked down here after we were finished at the Capitol Building and before we headed down the National Mall to visit the Lincoln Memorial and see the Washington Monument as well as the World War II Memorial. Be prepared to walk a lot if you ever go to DC!2017-07-25 06:47:49
National Mall Landmarks In Washington DC
This was a trip I won't soon forget for many reasons. These landmarks were especially a highlight to finally see in person. For more information about these landmarks you can visit the National Parks Service Website at 06:47:48
Schindler Elevators At Home2 Suites In Roanoke VA
This was one of our pit stops on our way to Washington DC. We didn't meet up with Andrew (Dieselducy) as he was in SC at the time. We took advantage of the new Home2 Suites being opened to go in and stretch our legs and film the elevator before hitting the road again. :)2017-07-24 06:47:48
Otis Elevator At The US Capitol Building In Washington DC
This is one of the elevators at the Capitol Building. This was a pretty interesting tour filled with a lot of US History facts. We had a very tasty lunch at the restaurant there after our tour. Thanks to our guide from Richard Burr's office for giving us such an informative tour. A neat part of the day was that dad got interviewed for a German Radio Show outside the Capitol Building about his thoughts on the health care bill. For photos we took here, you can check out FB photo album at 06:47:47
SpringHill Suites By Marriott Centerville Chantilly VA
This was one of our very few stops just to explore a hotel and ride the elevator on our trip to Washington DC since this was mainly a family vacation for sightseeing. We stopped here because this was the hotel where my high school class was going to be staying if our school trip to Washington DC had panned out but in the end, my high school class didn't go due to lack of interest in the amount of people who signed up.2017-07-24 06:47:47
Capitol South Metro Station Elevator Washington DC - YouTube
This is the elevator we rode up from the Metro Station to get to street level at Capitol South. We were on our way for a tour of the Capitol Building. I will be posting pictures later on to Facebook, I am still trying to sort through all of them. I still have some more elevator rides that we took so stay tuned for those plus a full hotel tour of the Trump International Hotel where we stayed on our last night for this trip. That was a birthday present given to me back in February but I couldn't redeem it until this summer when schedules were more accommodating. I have posted some of the Capitol Tour pictures on my Instagram account already if you want to check those out the link is 06:47:46
Glass Elevator in Wiehle Reston Metro Station
This is the elevator we rode to go to the lower platform to catch our train to Capitol South Station2017-07-23 06:47:46
Elevator at Parking Garage at Metro Wiehle - Reston East Reston VA
This was the first elevator I filmed on our first day going into the Washington DC Area. This is the elevator at parking garage we parked at to catch the Metro going to downtown Washington DC2017-07-23 06:47:45
Our 7000 Series Metro Ride Into Washington DC For The Highrise Elevator Lover
We stayed at the Hampton Inn Dulles Airport in Sterling VA for our first 2 days in the Washington DC area. This is our Metro Ride from
Wiehl-Reston Station to Capitol South Station with original audio with all the speaker announcements except maybe once or twice when mom stopped recording then started back up again so camera wouldn't time out on her. Camera memory gave out between the next to last stop but mom got the other camera out and got us approaching Capitol South stop and getting off to finish the ride out. Hope you enjoy it. This was one of the newer Metro 7000 series trains so it was a really nice ride especially since we went after the morning rush peak time.
2017-07-23 06:47:45
Arlington National Cemetery Trolley Tour
We picked the Trolley to visit and see Arlington due to the heat and amount of walking it would have taken round trip to get up to where the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier is buried and back to the Visitor Center. I had already done some pretty good walking the first couple of days we were in Washington (roughly 5 miles in just the first day alone - of course that was with rest breaks and LOTS of water to drink to prevent dehydration but still a lot of walking) This video is for anyone who would like to see this place but may never get the chance for whatever reason. It was an experience I will not forget. I have uploaded separate videos of the Changing of the Guard Ceremony & JFK's grave site. The links to those are below for quick reference. Changing Of The Guard JFK & Mrs. Jackie Kennedy Onassis' Grave Site

Changing Of The Guard At The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier
I was originally planning on uploading the elevator at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate Visitor Center for the 1st video of the video series of my trip to Washington DC & surrounding areas but due to epic fail of camera, the video that I thought we had filmed does not exist so change of plans, I decided that it would be fitting to upload one of the videos we took at Arlington National Cemetery which btw is a must see if you are ever in the area. It was an honor to witness this American Tradition of Tribute & Glory for "An American Soldier Known but to God."

Stay Tuned For Exciting Video Series From Washington DC Trip
I just got back from an exciting trip to Washington DC (& surrounding areas) This was mostly a sightseeing trip so I didn't get as many elevator videos as I normally get when I go on vacation but I did get some pretty neat ones plus I will be uploading some video footage of the Metro we rode. This video shows the grounds of Mount Vernon Estate which was the home of our 1st President George Washington. I thought we had filmed the elevator at the visitor center here (which I had planned to upload as the first video of the series after this intro video) but apparently we had an epic fail with the camera for that elevator ride. The elevator was an Otis Elevator with series 5 fixtures. It only went up to a 2nd level. It was a deep size elevator (made for large crowds)2017-07-21 06:47:42
Homewood Suites North Charleston Airport Location
This is the Homewood Suites that was right beside the Hampton Inn that we stayed at in Charleston SC. The main elevators were way too busy but we found this back elevator that was less busy.2017-07-16 06:47:42
Sullivan's Island Lighthouse & A Foggy Point Light Update
This is the country's last built lighthouse by the lighthouse service. It was built in 1962 and features air conditioning plus a freight elevator. It is an operational lighthouse but is not open to public for tours. This video shows both daytime and night time views as well an update on my dad's science fiction trilogy book series in which the first volume is called Foggy Point Light and has been out since January 2016 and is available in Paperback and Kindle Editions. It is also available in the KindleUnlimted program on Amazon. You can order it online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books A Million. Links to above mention are below for quick reference. The 2nd volume Ripples: Return To Foggy Point Light will be released sometime this coming August. To get a free download of chapter one of both volumes and for more information, check out

Full Hotel Tour of Hampton Inn & Suites in Charleston SC Airport Location
This Hampton has been opened for about 2 months. It's kind of got the feel of an upscale Hampton like you would see in a historic section of town but as you can see in the title this is located near the airport of North Charleston. I will be uploading another video that showcases the Otis Elevators better than what is shown here in this video but that's on another card that I have misplaced at the moment so when I find it, I will upload a video that shows more of the elevators which have very nice wooden walls. Hope you enjoy this tour. This is the Hampton Inn that I believe might replace the older Hampton which is located just down the road on the opposite side of the street from this one.2017-07-13 06:47:39
The Round Holiday Inn Hotel In Charleston SC River View
This was a pretty neat property to explore. They have an outdoor pool that you get to from the 3rd floor but it is separate from the actual round building. The Otis elevators had a green call station button and the floor indicators were also green which coincides with Holiday Inn colors. One elevator had a beep sound for floor passing chime and the other sounded like a clicker. Great views of Charleston's River Front from the roof top restaurant2017-07-13 06:47:39
Hampton Inn Near The Mall of GA
This Hampton has Dover Elevators which happen to be one of my top favorites of elevators :)2017-07-12 06:47:38
Hyatt Place North Charleston SC Airport Location
The one elevator was kind of busy with housekeeping so we just rode the other elevator for this video. The exterior picture of the Hyatt Place was taken from our room at the Hampton Inn & Suites where we actually stayed at.2017-07-12 06:47:37
2 Story Hampton Inn At Hilton Head SC
This is a unique Hampton Inn that the staff was very friendly, Thanks for the fresh popcorn popped just as we came in to explore. It was delicious!2017-07-11 06:47:37
Hampton Inn & Suites in Orangeburg SC
These were nice, didn't notice it at the time of taping but did notice when putting the video together that the floor passing beep would sound off at times when it shouldn't of and then didn't sound for 2nd floor on the ride up in first elevator but it did sound off coming back down at that spot.2017-07-10 06:47:36
Dover Elevators At The Hampton Inn In Atlanta - North Druid Hills GA
These were pretty nice Dover Elevators with red buttons2017-07-10 06:47:36
Hampton Inn North Charleston Airport Location
This is an older Hampton Inn which I am speculating it might not be a Hampton Inn much longer as there is a brand new Hampton Inn & Suites almost right across the street from here. They may decide to keep it a Hampton Inn though, you never know. :)2017-07-09 06:47:35
Home2 Suites Charleston SC
These ran pretty smooth. G in one of the elevators had white light on fixture instead of blue like the rest.2017-07-09 23:20:06
Schindler Elevators At Hampton Inn In Gainesville GA
This Hampton is in the process of getting upgraded on outside of the building2017-07-08 23:20:05

This is right beside the Hampton Inn and has a ThyssenKrupp elevator in its own closet.2017-07-07 23:20:05
Jumpy Dover Elevator at Hampton Inn Beaufort SC
This Dover elevator was pretty jumpy when it came to stopping. I can't say this was a smooth ride. It felt like the elevator needed a bit of adjustment done but other than that, it seemed like a pretty good Dover Impulse elevator.2017-07-07 23:20:04
New Drury Inn In Charlotte NC Arrowood Rd Location
Nice Otis elevators that were very busy so we only got good footage on one trip so this video is shorter than the usual but still gives a good impression of the hotel and elevators :)2017-07-06 23:20:04
Hampton Inn In Stockbridge GA Has A Mowrey Elevator
This was another stop on our Georgia trip over Father's Day weekend last month.2017-07-06 23:20:03
Hampton Inn Stone Mountain Georgia
This was taken back on our Father's Day trip. Explored this Hampton Inn before having an early dinner at the German Restaurant at The Village Corner in Stone Mountain which I might add was pretty good.2017-07-05 23:20:03
Hampton Inn Lawrenceville GA Rivers Exchange Shopping Center
This was one of our stops when we were in GA this past June2017-07-05 23:20:02
Hampton Inn At Norcross Georgia (Formerly Drury Inn & Suites)
Think Hampton did a nice make over of this hotel. They put a decorative glass panel over the glass elevator which prevents a lobby view from the elevator. I don't think I have seen a former Drury Inn turned into a Hampton before now.2017-07-04 23:20:02
Historic Fort Fremont In Lands End SC
Happy 4th of July to everyone. Thanks to all the service men & women who fight for our protection and freedom & in honor of those who serve their country past, present & future, here's a special video from our 4th of July weekend. We took a few moments to explore the old historic Fort Fremont which is named after a Civil War General in SC. Some say this place is haunted but we didn't see anything out of the ordinary. It was a shame to see some of it vandalized with graffiti which for the most part we do not show that, there is a part where you can see the graffiti but nothing too bad was written at that spot so we left it in so you all could get an idea of the passages and rooms. It was interesting to walk through and get the feel of a real fort. For more information on this place, you can visit their website at and for photos we took, you can click on FB photo album link here 23:20:01
Microtel by Wyndham in Walterboro, SC
This is located right behind the old former Hampton Inn that is now a Days Inn and right across the road from the new Hampton Inn & Suites so we decided we might has well take a moment or two to see what kind of elevator they have.2017-07-04 23:20:00
Driving, Climbing & Bonus View of Alligator We Saw At Hunting Island, SC
Footage from our 4th of July weekend. Driving through Hunting Island State Park, climbing the lighthouse along with views of the SC beach and views from the top of lighthouse plus bonus view of the alligator we saw in the natural habitat area.2017-07-03 23:20:00

Baymont Inn & Suites Hybrid Hotel Ramada Plaza Elevators
These are the elevators for both Baymont Inn & Suites and the Ramada sides for this Hybrid hotel in Fayetteville, NC. This used to be the Holiday Inn hotel.2017-06-30 23:19:58
Hybrid Baymont Inn & Suites / Ramada Plaza in Fayetteville Exterior Elevator
Very nice hybrid hotel located in Fayetteville, NC. This used to be the old Holiday Inn hotel but they have combined 2 hotels with the Bordeaux Convention Center as one complex. The 2 hotel share the same check in desk area / lobby plus Fitness & Business Centers along with outdoor pool. Baymont Inn is on one side and Ramada Plaza on the other side which are connected by long hallway of conference meeting rooms. Overall very impressed with what I saw. A total of 3 elevators which this is the 3rd one we found but I am uploading this one first as introduction. I will be posting the video of the other 2 elevators soon but for now enjoy this first video from this neat hotel complex. For more info, you can check out their websites at these links 23:19:58

Full Rainbow Summer of 2017
We saw this rainbow while traveling down the road the other day and it reminded me of my summer vacation in Kentucky last summer when we visited the Ark Encounter :) Looking forward to my summer vacation coming up in July which will be another new place for me that I have not been to :) If you missed the Ark Encounter video I posted from last year, you can click on this link to get to it also FB photo album links are here Part one Part two

Concord Regional Airport Parking Garage Schindler Elevators
These Schindler Elevators were nice and ran good but they need a little TLC applied. Needed the purell after filming these.2017-06-25 23:19:54
Hampton Inn & Suites In Historic Building Downtown Altanta GA
ems318 & the Elevator Channel have both filmed these elevators. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Very unique Hampton Inn & Suites2017-06-25 23:19:54
Hampton Inn Downtown Atlanta / GA Tech Location
These Dover elevators were key carded so we didn't think we were going to be able to take a ride but a guest was going up so he let us tag along. :)2017-06-23 23:19:53
Hampton Inn Atlanta - Northlake Has Interesting Elevators
These were extremely busy but we managed to get a solo ride up on our 2nd try. The other elevator was not running at the time we were there which might explain why this one was very busy. I edited this video the best I could as there were many people around with several conversations going so it might seem a little choppy on the ride down which doesn't go in direct sequence but overall you get a good feel of what the elevator is like.2017-06-23 23:19:53
Hampton Inn In McDonough GA (right behind Tru By Hilton)
This is the Hampton Inn that we could see right outside our window at the Tru By Hilton hotel2017-06-22 23:19:52
The Lodge at Chateau Elan: Hampton Inn & Suites Braselton GA
One of our stops when we went to GA this past weekend. Normally we ride both elevators but the one elevator didn't appear to be running as we kept getting the same elevator so after the 2nd try we gave up that the other one was not running.2017-06-21 23:19:52
BRAND NEW HOTEL CHAIN: The Tru By Hilton Brand In McDonough GA
Here it is Jonathan Mayse, This is the 2nd hotel in this new brand by Hilton to open. We stayed on the 3rd night of it being opened. Very nice. It's Hilton's new mid scale hotel brand which features a complimentary breakfast of Oatmeal. Fruit, Hard Boiled Eggs, Yogurt along with cereal, bagels & doughnuts with a variety of toppings to put on the bagels, cereal, oatmeal etc. Choices of healthy and sweet whichever you're in the mood for at the time or a combo of both. There's a neat business center area with tablets instead of computers and they have sound adsorbing booths for individuals to work at in lobby. They also have charge locker station with combination locks for devices in the lobby area if you want to charge your devices there (there's also outlets in the room that will charge your device as well) This location did not have a pool but they did have a 24 hour fitness gym. Overall I am impressed by the new brand and think Hilton has done a great job with it. I tried a bit of different style of video and narration for this tour as this is a brand that has the motto of being something "tru-ly different" Hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed staying there. For photos we took visit my fb album at and for more info on this hotel, check out the links below:

The Dwarf House AKA The Original Chick-Fil-A Hapeville, GA
This is located in Hapeville GA and has lots of history on the wall of Truett Cathy's food career. It has his statue outside on a bench and the Dwarf Door actually works if you want to use that to go in or out of the restaurant. The set up is a sit down with wait staff on one side and a regular Chick-Fil-A restaurant on the other side. Has an interesting motion wall mural which is seen towards the last of the video. Variety of menu options including steak and cheeseburgers plus breakfast is served all day. Food was tasty and history was interesting to read. If you're a fan of Chick-Fil-A then this is a place you might just want to put on your bucket list. :) For photos we took you can click on this link to FB album also here is the link to their website 23:19:51
Mr Clean Car Wash Norcross GA
We went to GA this past weekend to stay at the new Tru By Hilton brand in McDonough and decided to try this car wash when we saw it on our way to Stone Mountain as we had never seen a Mr Clean Brand Car Wash before. Here's the link to their website for more info on their car washes and services 23:19:50
Original Westinghouse Modded By Southern Elevator
Nick (cubecompmtdx) gave both me & Dieselducy call stations from this elevator. I am not sure if Dieselducy has gotten his yet which was from the first floor landing and has a fire switch on it. Mine was from the 3rd floor landing & is a Innovation Security (I-Line) call station. This elevator which was originally a Westinghouse has been modernized at least a couple of times. This video is the latest modernization done by Southern Elevator. This was filmed back in February of this year. If you want to see the video we took of this elevator last summer (2016) with Nick, here is the link Nick's channel was called bikegeekmtdx last year before he changed the name to cubecompmtdx2017-06-14 23:19:50
A Video My Teacher Made For Me About 4 Years Ago
This video is a video that popped up in FB memories. It was a video my teacher for both 4th and 5th grades made for me. It brought back a lot of great memories. Mrs. Taylor is one of the best teachers around. I thought I would share it with you all.2017-06-13 23:19:49

Views From Top Of St Augustine Lighthouse & Inside Fresnel Lens Room
A collection of videos dad took on our visit to St. Augustine Lighthouse. The audio is part of our tour guide's talk about the history of St. Augustine's Lighthouse. We were standing outside on the side of the lighthouse in front of first level window while she was talking which a loud crowd going through the lighthouse kind of drowns tour guide's voice at first but you can still hear her through the noise and it gets better once the crowd moves on past the window area.2017-06-12 23:19:48
Talking Mowrey Elevators At Hampton Inn Savannah GA South I-95 Gateway
Another video from my Spring Break. The first elevator we rode here was a bit confused when we got to the 6th floor These were very interesting elevators here with unique directional indicators. The 2nd one seemed to be slower than the first one, it may not have been but it did seem like it.2017-06-11 23:19:48
Red Lobster & Merit Award
This is a video of the lobster tank at Red Lobster where we went to celebrate the end of the school year. The audio is actually from last day of school ceremonies right before field day got started. I had the honor of being 1 of 2 students at my High School this year that received the most merits (& also received NO demerits) which I received a Certificate of Character. For privacy reasons of other students, I am not showing the actual video of me receiving the certificate but I do show a picture of me on stage that is cropped so other students are not shown at the end of the video.2017-06-10 23:19:47
Westinghouse Elevator With RT Fixtures Has A Mind Of It's Own
Now that I am on Summer break I have time to go through some of my back log videos and this one was taken this past February with Nick whose YT Channel is Cubecompmtdx at CPCC. This is a retake of this elevator which the 2 times including this time when I had visited the campus, had to think about whether or not it was going to take my call. Sadly, the Kratt Building that was right beside this building is now in the process of being torn down. You can check out Nick's FB page for photos and videos of that if you're interested at 23:19:47

24th Anniversary of Elevator Photography Special Dedicated to Dieselducy
Today is June 5th and is the 24th anniversary of Elevator Photography as we know it. Even though it's not the same Hilton that DIeselducy filmed at in Georgia, I decided to film at a Hilton to commemorate this special day. We have actually filmed these elevators before but they have since been modded by ThyssenKrupp? (originally Otis Elevators though I believe) so enjoy this video that has a few bonuses such as a ride on the Otis escalators in this Hilton that leads to the Convention Center and a view from the top Executive Level as the last elevator we rode here went up to that floor. This hotel just recently hosted ConCarolinas which is a neat thing to go to - this year the Tardis from Doctor Who was brought in by one of the vendors so I took the opportunity to take a photo in front of it as I have the Tardis backpack, so I included a couple of those photographs for ya'll :) If you're interested in seeing a room tour from this Hilton, you can check out my video from 2013 at this link of the room that a friend was staying in at that time.2017-06-05 23:19:44

8 Million Views Celebration Video of Several Hotel Tours
My YouTube Channel went over the eight million views mark which calls for a celebration of that milestone with a special video. I want to say thank you to all my viewers and subscribers for watching and also for the emails & letters letting me know how much you enjoy my videos of this hobby of mine. I know a lot of ya'll like the hotel tours we do so I have put together 3 hotels tours together for you in this video celebration. Actually the first two are a Hilton Brand Hybrid combination located in Jacksonville, FL. Some of you might remember Cannycart's tour of this Homewood Suites and Hilton Garden Inn back in 2013. We stayed on the Homewood Suites side which was a very nice stay during my Spring Break this year. The 3rd hotel is a brand that I haven't stayed at before until just a week ago. I got to go up to Asheville for a de-stress get away from end of year school testings and PSAt testing etc. We stayed at the Hyatt Place in downtown Asheville which we have a mystery guest that joins us for part of the tour and some of ya'll will recognize who she is. :) Stay tuned for more videos of the Hyatt Place as we got lots of videos during our stay there. Included in this video, is the suite tour that we stayed in which according to our mystery guest it is the best suite in the hotel which I can say it is a suite that one can just chill out and de-stress in. Hope you all enjoy this celebration video& thanks again for watching. For more info on these hotels, check out the links below and for pictures of the Hyatt Place, check out my FB photo album at

Hospital Size Otis Elevator At Hampton Inn in Holly Springs, NC
One of the Otis Series 5 Elevators at this Hampton Inn is hospital size which is very rare for a hotel to have that for the housekeeping elevator but it really makes more sense and easier to get those long carts into the elevator.2017-05-13 23:19:37
Kings Avenue Parking Garage Kone Elevators Jacksonville, FL
This is the parking garage for the Homewood Suites & Hilton Garden Inn Hybrid Hotel in Jacksonville, FL. This is the hotel that Cannycart stayed at back in 2013. Be looking for a full hotel tour coming soon to my channel of the hotel as we stayed on the Homewood Suites side for one night over my Spring Break but for now enjoy the parking garage elevator which was a Kone. Only one seemed to be working on the day we were there.2017-05-12 23:19:36
Parking Garage w/ Bonus Hilton Digital Key App Access System
This is the parking deck that both Embassy Suites and Hampton Inn & Suites in the historic section of downtown Savannah GA uses. We stayed at the Embassy Suites for one night over my spring break instead of the Hampton Inn & Suites because the Hampton was already sold out of the type of suite we were looking for since my grandpa was with us on this trip. Embassy offered the Hilton Digital Key Access so we opted for that for this stay which was the very first time we have used that feature. It was pretty neat. We used it for the parking garage as well as our suite. Stay tuned for the hotel tour of the Embassy Suites coming soon to my YT Channel.2017-05-11 23:19:36
For Cannycart: Hampton Inn In Santee SC
Cannycart filmed these elevators back in 2011 so I thought I would go ahead and dedicate this video for him. This was one of our stops on my Spring Break.2017-05-10 23:19:35
