Hampton Inn Nashville Tennessee Vanderbilt University
Interesting elevators system, these Kone fixtures are usually for Kone EcoDisc traction but the machine room they have for these elevators indicate that these are hydraulic but these might not be original Kone as you can tell inside the cab that these have been modded at some point.2018-08-25 01:28:32

A Unique Tru by Hilton That Has Indoor Pool & A Sky Deck (Pigeon Forge)
This is built just behind the Home2 Suites in Pigeon Forge. It has an indoor pool and also a sky deck patio area with great views! We were lucky that there was a family going up to the sky deck as we got back to the first floor on the 2nd elevator ride so we rode along with them back up in the first elevator and got to see it. Sky Deck is key carded access only.2018-08-23 01:28:31
Hampton Inn In Dickson, Tennessee
Been kind of busy this week with school starting and getting used to my very first college class that I am taking as part of the dual enrollment program for my senior year of high school so uploading videos from our recent trip to Tennessee kind of got put on the back burner.2018-08-22 01:28:30

Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Nashville, TN
This hotel has the usual man lobby elevators plus rear elevators down at the other end of the hallway where the fitness center is located which the rear elevators seemed to be newer and faster which makes me think they were put in as an afterthought or later than the main elevators. Their parking garage elevator is featured in the video I uploaded earlier.2018-08-18 01:28:28

Clement Railroad Hotel Museum in Dickson TN
This was an unplanned stop on our recent trip to Tennessee. We were on our way to Hurricane Mills and saw a highway sign for this place and thought it would be neat to stop and explore so that's just what we did. Sometimes that is what makes a vacation even more special when you come across a gem like this. The museum is a look into the past at the historic hotel and also the railroad industry as well. I will be posting pictures to my FB soon from here which we took a whole lot more than what we show in the video. The museum has MPEs but also a ThyssenKrupp Elevator in the back which I suspect was added on to the building. For more info on this place, check out their website at 01:28:25

I had an email from one of my viewers named Shannon who wanted to know if I would post a #flashbackfriday video.

This is a motorized car that my grandparents got me one Easter and I would ride that until I couldn't fit into any more. Shannon, I hope you enjoy this video, it may not be what you had in mind but this is what I came up with. :)2018-08-03 03:54:40

This is the Hampton Inn that is near Fairport Harbor so we stopped in to explore it after we had toured the lighthouse and marine museum which was interesting considering this lighthouse really reminded my dad of the lighthouse mentioned in his novel series.

Intense Lightning Storm
This lightning storm reminded dad of the storm in chapter one in his novel Ripples: Return To Foggy Point Light of how he envision the storm to have looked like.

My Tribute To Fred Rogers AKA Mister Rogers
This is for my 2nd cousins, Calvin, Cassidy, Charlotte & Clay. When we were in Pittsburgh at the Heinz History Center, they had a special exhibit celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Mister Rogers Neighborhood. so here is my tribute and memories of that exhibit. There is a misspelling in the video somewhere that I am sure Calvin, Cassidy, & Charlotte will catch :) Clay, I know you are too young to spell yet. I used to watch Mister Rogers in my early childhood days and he has always been a childhood hero of mine even when I outgrew the show. I love the message he tried to teach the world. Be the best you, you can be. The exhibit was very interesting and if you want to see more photos of that, you can check out my FB photo album from the Heinz History Center at 03:54:35

For Tara The Heinz History Center Downtown Pittsburgh PA
This video is for Tara Tee since this is in her hometown :) This museum is very interesting to explore - LOTS of neat items and history to learn in this place. Neat elevators as well even though I didn't get to ride the freight / staff elevators they were fun to look at as well. They did have hospital size elevators for the public to get to the different exhibits on each of the floors which included a lot of interesting different vehicles.

Glad we did as they had older Dovers but only one of the two elevators was working at the time. Didn't see the Schindler Representative anywhere though so he could have been working on the one.2018-07-12 03:28:11
My 300th Hampton Inn Youngstown West I 80 Ohio
On our recent vacation, I visited my 300th Hampton and Jami Kather (front office manager) & her fine staff definitely showed the Hamptonality Spirit at this award winning Hampton (2017 Circle of Excellence) They gave me a bag full of treats, a Hilton Honors cap & Hampton tumbler which I appreciate very much. I would like to dedicate this video to one of my viewers who is also a big fan of elevators and his YT Channel user name is JohnElevatorFan, keep up the great work and thanks for watching my videos. We never really got a good video of the elevator at this Hampton which was pretty busy at the time we stayed there so that's why there is not an elevator clip included in this video. I do show the King Size room and a double Queen size room video clips but since it was late at night, we didn't do our usual room tours as we were pretty tired from traveling all day. Thanks again Jami and Hampton for all you do! You made my 300th visit a special one to remember!2018-07-11 03:28:11

It's Wednesday so time for another episode of Summer's edition is from 2012 with a little excerpt from the video Andrea Coon & her staff made with me in the elevator at Hampton Inn Tunnel Road that eventually led to the making of "Elevated Hamptonality" and a trip of a lifetime for me to go to Memphis to meet the Hampton Brand Performance Team and preview our Hamptonality Moments Video on the big screen at the Historic Orpheum Theater where I met a lot of Hampton VIPS and was also given lots of Hampton goodies plus the Ambassador of Hamptonality title. I will also be uploading a present day video later on this afternoon of my recent visit to the 300th Hampton Inn that I
just visited on our 4th of July vacation week.

Sheetz Top Car Wash For DieselDucy & The Elevator Channel
We took a few days of vacation this week since dad had some time off for the 4th of July. We stopped off in New Philadelphia Ohio while on the road to explore the Hampton Inn there and right next door was a Sheetz with a car wash so we decided to give it a try. This one is kind of different where it closes both doors while the wash is in operation and also has a security camera actually inside the car wash bay. This is for Andrew AKA Dieselducy as he likes Sheetz and also for The Elevator Channel since he does a lot of car washes.2018-07-05 03:28:06

Dover Elevator At Hampton Inn Asheboro NC
This was one of our stops on our Father's Day Trip on the way home. This Hampton actually has extra long hallway. It looks like it might have added on with extra building at some point but it may of been built that way to start with. There are two elevators, one in lobby and one at the area where it looks like extra building was added on, there's an outside door for guests to come directly into that area from parking lot in front. It was kind of busy and so I didn't get all of the normal pictures of the hotel we usually get at Hamptons but got a few along with a ride on the elevator in lobby area.2018-06-22 02:46:19
Elevator At Ballantyne Village For Regal Cinema + Parking
We went to the movies to see the new documentary on one of my childhood heroes, Mister Rogers called "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" which I highly recommend if showing in your area.

Most of the buildings were closed as it was a Sunday evening and the University is on Summer Schedule but we did find a few of the buildings open. This is one of the original buildings that was on campus when mom went here.2018-06-19 02:46:17
Schindler Elevator At Hampton Inn In Benson NC
Here is the full video featuring the neat find I found on Father's Day Road Trip. Possibly either 5500 or 3300, both can have the same type of fixtures so it's hard to tell. This was my first time coming across this type of Schindler with these fixtures. I know Jim Li Elevators has also filmed similar elevators with these fixtures as well.2018-06-19 02:46:17
Sneak Peek Of A Neat Find I Found (Full Video Coming Soon)
For Father's Day, my grandfather wanted to go on a day trip to anywhere so I picked out several Hamptons that are located in areas that are not just somewhere you are passing by to get somewhere else so to speak. At one of these Hamptons, we found a very neat find of an elevator that I haven't found one of yet. I'll give you a hint, Jim Li Elevators has one on his channel but I haven't seen anyone else who has uploaded one of these yet (doesn't mean that nobody else has, I just only have seen Jim Li Elevators Channel feature this type of elevator so far.) Full video coming soon to my channel2018-06-18 02:46:17
Dual Brand of Residence Inn & Courtyard by Marriott (Northlake Mall)
Special thanks to the fine staff and Ryan for the warm welcome and tour of this very nice dual hotel brand or as some call them a hybrid hotel. This model features the Residence Inn and Courtyard which are both Marriott brands. It is located near Northlake Mall area just off I-77 at Harris Blvd and HWY 21. Both hotels share the same entrance and front desk area, outdoor pool & fitness center. The complex has spacious lobbies and there are also outdoor patios/courtyard areas in back of the hotel and in front of the hotel.
My camera apparently was messing up just a bit so this is a collage of our visit there. Hope you enjoy it. For more information on this hotel you can check out their website at or Facebook Page at

Hilton Garden Inn in Fayetteville, NC

A Tribute For Pop-Pop
As some of you may already know, my Pop-Pop went home to be with the Lord in January of this year. He had been living near my aunt in Utah for the past few years. This past weekend my aunt brought his ashes back to NC to lay him to rest beside my Grandmother Medlin in their hometown of Fayetteville, NC. At this memorial service, there was a Military Honor Guard who performed the firing of the three volleys (aka 21 Gun Salute) which I include that in this video. As the bugle played a rendition of "Taps" near the end, three military helicopters flew over, which that part was not planned but added a special touch to the ceremony as my Pop-Pop had jumped out of many helicopters in his military career in the 82nd Airborne Division, Quartermaster Corps as a Parachute Rigger and as a Jumpmaster Master Parachutist. My tribute also includes a part of the power point family legacy project that I had done at school last year that talked about the influence that my mom's dad had on her and has been passed down onto me as well. I end my tribute with some photos from some of the memories that Pop-Pop and I had together. I thank God for you Pop-Pop and will miss you until we meet again in Heaven, where you can introduce me to the grandmother that I didn't get a chance to meet here on earth.2018-06-13 02:46:15

Circle K Carwash
We didn't particularly care for this one, not sure what system it uses, it could be Mark VII or Superior, but at any rate we did learn a lesson from it. Trust your instincts because mom thought the voice said economy wash and she asked dad about it which one he got and he said he got the top wash and her rethought was the voice must of said quality instead of economy but after the wash I'm thinking we did get the economy wash instead of the quality wash. On video the voice sounds like economy but our ticket as you can see in the video shows super wash on it which is the top wash name. .2018-06-09 02:46:14

25th Anniversary of Elevator Photography
Elevator Photography as we know it started 25 years ago today. The first elevators involved were at a Hilton property and a Marriott property so I thought I would upload a dual video from the Embassy Suites and Marriott hotels in downtown Winston Salem, NC which are connected by a skybridge walkway and also share the same parking garage (see parking garage video at this link I also included the Dover elevator at the walkway between the two hotels. Hope ya'll enjoy this video!
Special thanks to Andrew for all he has done for this hobby that so many of us enjoy.

Elevator Light Show At Cherry Marshall Parking Garage
In this video, I have included both elevators in the parking garage which In the 2nd elevator, the motion sensor for the lights started to blink off and on so mom suggested giving the video the name elevator light show, so I did. These were originally Otis but modded by ThyssenKrupp. This parking deck services the public but is also used for the Marriott and Embassy Suites hotels in downtown Winston Salem. Stay tuned for a special upload tomorrow celebrating the anniversary of Elevator Photography.2018-06-04 03:28:38
Rare Two Side By Side Elevators In JCPenny's Store at Hanes Mall
We were in Winston Salem yesterday and stopped by the mall. For some reason, we have never filmed at this mall before, not sure why we haven't as many times as we have either come up to Winston Salem or passed by it but at any rate, we actually had time to explore the mall and I think we found all the public elevators there (note the Sears Elevator was out of service so we didn't film that one). Very unique mall floor plan as JCPenny's divides the mall. You actually have to go through Penny's store to get to the other half of the mall. Penny's had two elevators side by side which is rare for a mall department store to have.2018-06-04 03:28:37
