Special thanks to my viewers and subscribers for the milestone of reaching ten million views for my YouTube Channel. Thank you so much for watching! For the ones who have written me either via email or letter to let me know what these videos mean to you; it means a lot to me that you took the time to share that with me. I'm so thankful to the Lord that He has used my hobby and interest in elevators and hotels to bring enjoyment and inspiration to others. I also thank the Lord for blessing me with so many friendships that I wouldn't have if I didn't have this particular hobby. I want to dedicate this video to Mrs. Fillmer, who is my college advisor, as a special thank you for all she had done for me.

JW Clay University City Park & Ride CATS Parking Deck Glass Elevators

CATS Lynx Blue Line Full Trip From UNC Charlotte Main to 485-South Blvd
Mom & I were out and about running some errands and since we were in the area, we decided to stop and check out the elevators at the JW Clay University City Station for the CATS Lynx Blue Line which is part of the new extension of the light rail that opened on Friday, March 16th and while we were there, we met a family in the parking deck who were finished with their day passes that they had purchased & they offered those day passes to us so we took them up on that offer and took a ride which mom filmed part of but our camera ran out of memory so that video only has from JW Clay University City Station to 36th Street Station. Link to that video is at this link We met up with dad, whose iPhone was fully charged and had enough memory to film a ride and he felt like I did about making good use of the free day passes :) So with all that being said, here is ride two of opening day of the new extension line which is a complete full trip from UNC Charlotte Main Station to 485 South Blvd. Hope you enjoy it.2018-03-17 02:33:23
Lynx Blue Line New Extension Opening Day March 16th 2018
Today the extension of Lynx Blue Line opened in Charlotte, NC. We were out and about running errands and decided to just go by and check out the elevator at the new JW Clay University City Station since we were in the area and then we ended up taking a ride so enjoy this little preview of the new extension of the Lynx Blue Line of CATS. I was thinking JW Clay University City Station was the last stop of the extension but I was wrong there is one more stop and until the camera's memory storage gets full you can tag along with us from JW Clay University City Station til about 36th Street Station. Eric at 16:19 in video, you see an AMTRAK train passing us on the railroad tracks. For a full complete ride from UNC Charlotte Main to 485 South Blvd check out this link 02:33:23

One of the World's Smallest Police Stations
Another Roadside America stop on my Winter Break. Ridgeway SC is home to one of the world's smallest police stations. The old police station used to be the town's well until 1940 when it was converted into the police station which was replaced in 1990 with a new police station twice its size next door. The police station has a emergency phone when not manned that is located beside the building. For information on this Roadside America stop, visit the website at 02:33:21
Remembering Billy Graham at the Billy Graham Library 2/21/18
I paid my respects to Billy Graham by taking the Journey of Faith tour at BGL today where the trees are starting to blossom on a spring like day. Makes me think of Billy's new chapter in life - his first day in Heaven as "a hero of the faith" has gone home to be with the Lord. Billy said when he died, he would just be changing his address (from an earthly home to his heavenly home.) We'll miss you Billy Graham. Thank you for your ministry and leading people to Christ. For more information about the BGL check out their website at 02:33:20
New Hotel Chain: Legacy Suites With Schindler 3300 Alarm Flashing
This is a brand new hotel chain that according to their website has just 3 locations in the US so far. This one is located in Rock Hill, SC. There is another one in Greenville, SC and the other one is located in the state of Louisiana. You can check out their website at They do have business & fitness centers, market shop and guest laundry but no pool. I'm thinking they are comparable to Hilton's Tru brand. This location has a Schindler 3300 elevator which ran smooth and had something interesting happen that I had not experienced before in Schindler 3300, for some reason when we got in, the alarm button was on with no alarm sounds then the button started flashing off and on. The regular sounds of the door and floor passing chimes were on and sounded normal like the Schindler 3300 model does. Welcome to the hotel business Legacy Suites. I wish you the best in your endeavors.2018-02-21 02:33:20

1st Car Wash of 2018: Clean Ride Express Concord, NC
With the snow we had this week, we decided it would be a good idea to drop by the car wash and get my car washed so we went to Clean Ride Express which we had done several years back but someone had commented that they had gotten a new system in so we thought another visit would be in order and we were in the area today so here it is. We got the Manager's Special which was $20 but you get two car washes (you redeem the extra one within 4 days of purchase) for that price so I think it was a pretty good deal. For more info on this car wash, here is their website link and if you're interested in the video we did here several years back, here is that link 02:33:15
A Revisit To The Inn At Christmas Place In Pigeon Forge, TN
We stayed here before back in 2013 and did a full hotel tour back then. To see that tour, here is the link to that video We stayed here over my Thanksgiving Break this past November when we went up to PF for the holiday. My grandfather was with us and he had never stayed here before so we decided it was time for him to do that. :) We enjoyed it very much. The Singing Santa actually gave a concert while we were there which was a lot of fun. I have visited this Santa several times throughout my childhood at the Christmas Place store in PF so it was neat to actually see one of his concerts at the Inn. This Santa is played by Dean Townsend who is also known for singing Southern Gospel which you get a sampling of his singing in this video. You can also see more of him at this link Hope ya'll enjoy the video which includes a tour of the room we stayed in. I had forgotten to upload this during the Christmas season but better late than never I suppose. For more info on this place, you can visit their website at 02:33:14

Robert E Lee Hotel In Lexington Virginia
This is the same hotel that Andrew ( Dieselducy ) has filmed at a couple of times. We stopped in Lexington on our way to Washington DC over Christmas Break to eat supper at the Southern Inn Restaurant which is just across the street from this hotel. Special thanks to Erin the front desk clerk who was very friendly and offered to show us the 3 different room types that they have. We start out with a tour of the King Corner Suite then take time out to ride the elevator (originally Otis but now modded) then we tour a standard king room and then a standard queen room. According to Erin the 6th floor is a private residence floor. For more information about REL Hotel check out their website at 06:49:55

Museum Of The Bible Main Elevators Plus World Of Jesus Of Nazareth Exhibit
We rode the main elevators several times going from floor to floor - most of the time it was very busy but there were a few times where we got a good view of the elevators. These elevators had moving backdrops on either side of the cab. As a bonus I included a walk through of the World of Jesus of Nazareth section of the museum. This section depicts what Nazareth would of been like in the days of Jesus. This museum is HUGE and although we spent the whole day there (even ate lunch and supper there) we still didn't see everything, that's just how big it is. I added photos of what we ate for lunch at the cafe at the end of this video. The cafe is one of several eating options the museum has there. If anyone is interested in the museum. I have uploaded photos that we took there on my FB page at Their website is 06:49:52

Washington Revelations Ride Wall Mural
Museum of the Bible has this ride which I was not sure about riding but decided to give it a try, it was pretty intense ride for me but after it was over with, I can honestly say I am glad I decided to give it a go. It is a neat ride that has nice views of Washington DC's landmarks that has Biblical references engraved on the actual landmark or in a landmark building. To learn more about this ride, you can check out the Museum of the Bible's video explaining what the ride entails at this link to their video.

Old Salem Candle Tea 2017
Over my Thanksgiving Break as we were heading back towards home, we took a detour to Old Salem and toured that to end our holiday weekend. While we were there, we found out about their special Candle Teas they have during the Christmas season, so we headed back up to Old Salem this past Saturday and experienced an old fashion Christmas celebration. This video highlights just what a Candle Tea entails. Interesting enough, they don't serve tea at a CT but Moravian Coffee along with Moravian Sugar Cake. It was fun to start off the Christmas season celebrating the birth of Jesus by singing Christmas Hymns and watching how candles are made at Old Salem. They also have 2 putz dioramas which include The Nativity Christmas Story and a model of the town of Old Salem. You can also find out more about it at this link

That's right folks. Today marks the 8th anniversary of my YT Channel. I started this channel back in 2009 on November 30th. Thanks to all my viewers and subscribers for watching and enjoying this hobby of mine.

We will start with the last part of my Thanksgiving Weekend trip which shows what a Colonial American era Tavern (hotel) in Old Salem (NC) would have been like. This Tavern boasts having a very famous guest staying there and that is none other than the very first president of the United States of America, George Washington. Then we will move to modern day which is the video from my fall break that I have not uploaded yet of the new Hampton Inn & Suites at Biltmore Village. Thanks to GM Scott Kercher for giving us a great tour of this new facility in Asheville, NC. For more info on these two venues see links below:

This is just up the street from the new Hampton Inn on Historic Trail. These 2 hotels are very similar in Decor and have pretty much the same type of elevators. Thinking they might be owned by same hotel management group.2017-11-14 06:48:18
D2 Elevator Bank & Bonus View of G3 Scenic Opryland Hotel Elevator
More from Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN
D2 elevator bank was kind of busy and we managed to get 2 of the elevators but could never get the other one to come. I included a bonus view of the scenic glass elevator that Dieselducy has filmed before. When he filmed it, it was a Dover but has since been modded.

Full Hotel Tour of Hampton Inn & Suites In Hendersonville, TN
This is not far from Nashville, TN and this is the hotel we stayed at during our time there over my fall break. I have had a few emails asking where we stayed at when we went to Nashville so I decided I would go ahead and upload this tour for ya'll. As you will be able to see and tell towards the beginning of the tour, this hotel is not far from train tracks. You can kind of see the train moving between the trees but that's about all you can see of the train because it was at night. Hope ya'll enjoy this tour. I will be uploading the hotel tour of Park Vista sometime next week so stay tuned for that....2017-11-11 06:48:17

Sneak Peek of Full Hotel Tour Of Park Vista Hotel
On our way to Nashville for my fall break, we stopped for the first night at Gatlinburg, TN and we stayed at the Park Vista Hotel which was a unique experience as the room we stayed in had 2 king sized beds.

Hope you enjoy this preview of the upcoming hotel tour to my YT channel.2017-11-04 06:48:13
Old Mill Restaurant Handi Lift for Lower Level to Main Floor
On my fall break last month, we stayed one night in Gatlinburg and had supper at one of our favorite restaurants in Pigeon Forge at The Old Mill. We got to take a few moments to ride the handicap lift that takes you to lower level dinning room from main floor. A great place to eat either meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) which this particular time was a unique visit as right as mom walked in to put our name on waiting list, they made an announcement that they had a large table available with 8 seats that different parties could share the table with each other. Two other couples had signed up and we had four in our party so it was a perfect fit. It was interesting having dinner with them and not having to wait 40 minutes for a table. For more info on this landmark in PF, here is the link to their website 06:48:13
Tru By Hilton & Home2 Suites Hybrid In Murfreesboro, Tennessee
We made a side trip to Murfreesboro to explore this very first Tru By Hilton's hybrid hotel. This hotel is more unique in more ways than one with the format of dual brands. This one not only shares pool, fitness center and guest laundry but the elevators too. Tru has own breakfast, business center & market in their lobby and Home2 has their own breakfast, business center & market in their lobby. Both have separate entrances. For more info on this hotel, check out their website at 06:48:12

An October Night Walk Through Fontanel Mansion ( Former Home of Barbara Mandrell )
This is a different kind of tour of the Fontanel Mansion. We picked the special option of first time ever offered night time tours for the month of October in which the mansion is decked out with all the spooks and spirits of Halloween. We chose this option because the tours were self guided and at your own pace instead of the regular guided tours within a group. Mom & I do not care for Halloween however, so the purpose of this tour is not that effect although you do see the mansion is decorated up for the "haunted feel." Mom was the one filming so she didn't zoom in on the spooks or spirits although you can't help but see some of the effects. While dad was enjoying the spooks effects, I hung out with my grandfather and explored the mansion with him while mom took care of the filming because we thought there maybe some more like us who were interested in seeing the mansion's design and layout of the place because it is the former home of country music singer Barbara Mandrell who with her husband and architect company designed what some believed to be the largest log "cabin" ever built. For more info on the mansion, you can visit their website at 06:48:10
Surf's Up Car Wash In Harriman, TN (Near Kingston)
While on the road, the windshield got pretty 'buggy" so we stopped in a car wash that was near the gas station where we were filling the tank up to keep heading down the road. We just got the $6 car wash which I think was a pretty good deal for the wash it gave the car. Hope ya'll enjoy it. You can check this car wash's FB page at 06:48:10
New Hotel Called Margaritaville Island Inn At Pigeon Forge
SuperDakota33 this is your requested Shout Out video. Hope you enjoy it. This is the 2nd Jimmy Buffett theme hotel that is located at The Island in Pigeon Forge, TN. This one is right at the entrance of the Island off the Parkway. The first one is actually inside the area of the Island and is called Margaritaville Island Hotel and this one is called Margaritaville Island Inn. I would suspect that both hotels are owned by the same company. :) For more info, you can check out their website at 06:48:09
NEW Hampton Inn in Gatlinburg, TN Historic Nature Trail

Enclosed Home Lift At Fontanel Mansion Nashville TN
This is the 2nd Handi Lift that they have at Fontanel. This one is just off the hallway where the stairs are on main level (you have to go through side room that serves as the laundry room) and it will take you to the hallway where the upstairs bedrooms are located. The staff were very friendly and didn't mind us filming the lifts for my YT channel. It was interesting to tour this mansion at night with very few lights on for effect that they were going for (haunted mansion) which like I have said before, mom & I don't really care for Halloween but the regular tours are given during daytime so we chose this option as we were free to explore the mansion on our time instead of being in a group. Stay tuned for more videos from my fall break vacation in Nashville, TN.2017-10-24 06:48:08
Garaventa Genesis Handicap Lift Elevator at Fontanel Mansion
Here is the lift that they installed in the pool atrium of the mansion. We were told the lifts were put in after Barbara Mandrell sold the house and the house open to the public. I will upload the next one very soon that is located in the upper hallway which actually comes out past the laundry room area on main floor of the mansion. For more about the mansion, you can visit their website at 06:48:08

C2 Elevator Bank At Opryland Hotel In Nashville, TN
One of our stops on my Fall Break was in Nashville, Tennessee and one of our goals was to explore the Opryland Hotel. It was fun but tiring once we walked through what we could. I think some of it was under renovations or construction but most of it was open. They are in the process of putting up Christmas decorations which you will see in some of the videos that I will be uploading from here. This video was taken in Cascades Wing of the complex resort.2017-10-22 06:48:07

Fall Break Video Series Intro: Fontanel Mansion's Driveway
Just got back from a great trip to Tennessee for my Fall Break. This video is the drive up to and from the mansion known as Fontanel (from the ticket office) which is located just outside of Nashville, at Whites Creek. It is the former home of Country Music singer Barbara Mandrell. I will be uploading more from Fontanel more towards Halloween as the night time tour we took was centered around the spooky Halloween theme. While mom and I don't really care for Halloween and was just interested in seeing the mansion at night time, dad likes that type of stuff so he filmed the "spooks" of the mansion tour so I will upload that part for a Halloween special. I did get to ride and operate the two handicap lifts in the mansion so I will be uploading those videos soon. Fall Break videos will be from Asheville, NC & several cities in Tennessee including Nashville's Opryland Hotel so stay tuned...2017-10-21 06:48:05
