Patches for my packs

Yesterday I received a couple of really cool patches from Death Wish Coffee Company (my new favorite).  Today I stopped at the local Scout Shop in Wilmington to pick up a few items including Badge Magic.  Now those cool patches look awesome on my backpack and day pack.

Our Scouts from BSA Troop 660 picked a new adventure for us, and they are looking forward to it.  We are heading to:

Colorado Springs for a tour of the Air Force Academy, Pikes Peak, and white water rafting.  Then it is off to the White River National Forest to complete a four day 25 mile backpack trip.

We are then camping at Canyonlands to exploring Arches National Park, Moab, and Canyonland.  We’ll follow up with a horseback ride in Monument Valley.  I plan to get up early to get a photo or time-lapse of the sunrise.  Then it’s three days at the Grand Canyon for some serious day hikes.

We will complete the trip with a visit to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and the Capitol Reef National Park for two days.  Back to Denver and fly back home.

I still need to check with the airline if I can bring my DJI Phantom 3 Pro.  I plan to bring my GoPros with plenty of empty 32GB scares and a Jackery Giant battery charger.

Had some time tonight to fly my DJI Phantom 3 Pro (first time in months). Sunset in Pike Creek, Delaware.

Created new Facebook Profile Video Pics using FCPX

The other day I was looking for some new ideas for videos I make for my son’s Boy Scout troop, and I received an email from Pixel Film Studios about a new plug-in called ProFreez Comic for Final Cut Pro.  Well the luck of the Irish was smiling down on me, everything was 25% off for St. Patrick’s Day!  I ended up purchasing ProFreez Comic and ProFreeze Spatter.

So I created a test clip using a few selfies from my camping trips this year.  I kept the clips at 5 seconds, changed the duration of the plug-in to just a few seconds, and saved to my Photo Library.  Using my iPhone, I changed my Facebook profile to the video clips below ( I ended up keeping version 2).  The music clip is not available in Facebook profiles.
