“Ok campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties cause its cold out there…”
This was a spot we wanted to visit before we moved too far away. While many things were closed around town, it was cool to visit the spot that receives universal United States attention one day a year.
Peter McKinnon actually watched this video and loved it so much he made his own reaction video to it…
If you follow Peter, or YouTubers like him, then you should ABSOLUTELY go and subscribe to Sam Newton. I would describe his as a sort of Jon Stewart of YouTubers…a YouTuber poking fun at the clichés of being a YouTuber. However, his skill level with his videos and storytelling is easily on par with the big names.
This was not an easy video to make…but it was important.
My father-in-law passed away a little over a year ago and I avoided making this video for quite a while.
Emotional stuff like this is NOT my strong suit…but this was a way for me to process what I am going through. I also hope that it’s an appropriate way for me to say thank you to my wife’s father.
One of the things I have found about making vlogs is that, in some odd way, talking to the camera helps me process. I tend to internalize my emotions…which can work against me…but I have found that if I talk about them that it helps immensely.
Even if I’m just talking to a camera.
This video is a celebration of life in tribute to Larry Mitchell Sr.
