Exploring the Duke Mansion with Cannycart
We took Cannycart and his family to the Duke Mansion. Keep a look out for a view of the fitness center, the built in cabinet radio and my dad demostrating the skylight in one of the rooms. The Duke Mansion staff is always so friendly to us every time we go there. They tell us to make ourselves at home&even keep the doors open to the rooms that are not occupied for us to explore.2011-07-28 16:50:21

Epic Fail on Getting to Ride this Otis Elevator at a Parking Deck in Chapel Hill
Normally when this happens, I just delete the video footage instead of uploading it to YT but thought this time I would as the building was a pretty nice looking one. Not sure what the building is..maybe apartments This building and parking deck is right next door (across the street) from the Aloft Hotel in Chapel Hill. Although we didn't get to ride this elevator, there was another elevator on the other side of the parking deck that we could ride. I will upload that video next. Hope you enjoyed this little teaser of a video.2011-07-25 23:21:55

A Quaint Little Dover Elevator at the Davidson Village Inn in Davidson, NC

This was a "all you can eat pizza buffet cruise" that we took with some of my classmates from school.

The cruise was about 1 1/2 hours long cruising around on Lake Norman.2011-07-14 04:41:17

Riding the Montgomery Kone Elevator in JCPenney's with a Mall Security Officer
Located in JCPenney's at Westfield EastRidge Mall. Actually had a Mall Security Officer get on during one point of this elevator taping. I was wondering if we were going to get into trouble but he was real nice and didn't even ask us what we were doing even though he could see mom was recording the elevator ride. Also another time a JCPenney's staff member got on and she didn't say a word to us either. Nice Mall.2011-07-13 02:17:31

Montgomery Kone Escalator located in JCPenney's at Westfield EastRidge Mall
I took regular audio off as it had music playing right around the escalator. This mall actually has quite a few escalators especailly in the mall area but I wasn't really in the mood to try them out today but since this one was a Montgomery Kone. We decided to try it. The others they had were Schindlers, Oits&some Kones through out the mall area.2011-07-13 01:17:57

Schindler HT Elevator Number 1 at the Hampton Inn in Belmont, NC
Notice the call buttons. There are 4 for 2 elevators and they are actually part of the elevator door frame instead in the middle on the wall. This is a little bit fancier than most Hampton Inns. I will be uploading another video of more footage from this hotel including the 2nd elevator which has a rear door on the opposite end of the front cab door.2011-07-12 00:18:54
ETS Elevators at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Downtown Charlotte, NC
Anybody know anything about these? We have run across another elevator that had Elevator Tech Services name on it but I don't think that company is in operation anymore as when I emailed them to inquire about the Mystery Elevator we filmed in Locust, NC, I got an undeliverable message reply due to email address not found which was the ones I found on the website. Not sure if ETS featured here on this elevator is the same company or not from the elevator in Locust.2011-07-11 21:54:35

Radicame Radio Control Camera System R-900 Model. This camera car was made in 1986 and came with an Instamatic 110 camera which mounts inside the cylinder and can be remotely triggered from the controller. Since 110 film is hard to get now, and film developing is also hard to find, we've adapted ours with an iPhone mount so that we can take video from the car.2011-07-04 02:18:59

Classic Dover Elevator at the Main Library in Downtown Charlotte, NC
ElevatorDudeDave97 has filmed these elevators back in 2010. It has been years since I have rode these particular elevators. We have a video (that I don't think I have uploaded to YT) of me with my Pop-Pop riding these elevators when I was around 5, I think. The call buttons and cab railings look about the same as do the fixtures in that video but as far as we can tell it did not have the pretend skylight or sercurity camera as it was much darker inside the cab when we were riding inside of it years ago or that could be that my mom was using a different video camera, not sure which as she never pointed the video camera up at the ceiling back then. However we were able to go down to the basement level back then because it was open so people could work down there on computers, etc. I may or may not upload that video from years ago as sometimes the older videos are a bit harder to convert into the right format with audio sounding good and mom was bascially pointing the camera at me rather than the elevators for the most part. Anyway, hope you enjoy the video.2011-06-23 20:51:36
