I went to pick up Koa from UT this morning so he could attend an event near our house. It is a quick 25-minute drive (without traffic) and I decided to make a little time-lapse video. Enjoy!

“Fujifilm X-E4” Cedar Park, 2021

I used my Fujifilm X-E4 to record a bunch of video on our camping trip last week and the footage turned out great. I just used the 18-55 mm “kit” lens which worked perfectly. I’m loving this camera more and more!

Please have a watch if you have a few moments. (I used my GoPro 9 for the walking parts):

Nice Day for Contrail Viewing

These past couple of days have seen good conditions for viewing contrails. I set up my camera for a west-facing time-lapse and captured a bunch of them. Enjoy!

I finally got around to finishing our Arches National Park video. It’s fun to learn video editing!

I’d appreciate it if you gave it a watch if you have time:

I hope you had a great day! またね~

Morning Motorbike Ride in the Texas Hill Country

“Vroom” Marble Falls, 2021

This morning I went on an old-fashioned cruise through the Texas Hill Country. We live close to a popular route for motorcyclists: RM 1431. The best stretch winds from Cedar Park to Marble Falls, filled with long sweepers, and many ups and downs. There are only a couple sharper bends, but nothing I’d call a twisty, and as long as you use the speed warning signs as your cue, you’ll be fine. In fact, I’d say the lowest your speedometer would drop to is maybe 45 mph / 72 kph, and I tend to ride conservatively.

I’ve ridden RM (Ranch-to-Market) 1431 many times, and it’s always really fun. It’s nice to just cruise at a leisurely pace or you can twist the wrist a bit and see what your motorbike can do. There are even several slow-vehicle passing sections too which can be helpful.

I prefer to ride in the early morning when there are barely any cars. On the way to Marble falls at 7:30 am, there were only a handful of other motorists, but on the way home, I saw a lot more cars and motorcycles heading in the other direction. So if you’re like me and prefer the open road, head out early!

Please check out the POV videos I recorded on the ride:

I hope you had a nice day!
