The Week Ahead 02

Gooood Morning!

Well, I had an awesome time down in New Orleans this last weekend with the guys and made it back mostly in one piece. Most definitely needed an extra cup of coffee this morning.

Anyway, here are a few things I'm looking at and thinking about this week:

Outdoor Activity:

Looks like some chances of rain, but it should stay above freezing around KC! Hoping it stays clear for running outside. When it's chilly, I like to run in a lightweight, long sleeve T-shirt. I rarely wear a hoodie or jacket unless it's straight up COLD. Thinking about getting a small belt to put my phone in while I'm running. I have a nice Nathan vest, but really only like to break that out for those extra long runs, or when it's really hot and I need to carry extra water.

Also, it's been a little while since I've gone exploring outdoor locations. I have a few ideas that should be decent for photos, but I'm going to do some scouting this week and see how they look.

Mama Tried:

She sure did, Merle, but I'm not talking about the song. The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show is next weekend, March 14-15th, in Milwaukee, WI. It's an indoor invitational show where builders show their custom bikes, but there are after parties, an indoor flat-track race, and they're raffling off this 1951 Harley-Davidson WR. So cool...

DJI Tech:

I've been looking at DJI products for a long time, but have yet to get my big hands on some of their newer products. I seriously considered picking up the Mavic Mini drone because it's small and lightweight, has a decent camera, and I think it would be good for what I would use it for. If you're looking for something bigger with more features, DJI has a whole lot of other options.

The DJI Ronin-SC and Ronin-S have also caught my eye. These camera stabilizers have good reviews from what I can tell, and don't have that eye-popping price of the high end professional models.


CreativeLive is a great resource for gaining access to online classes. There are classes on photography, video, business, crafts, music, art, and many other topics. Prices range from $15 to $100+, depending on the class, but there are always a rotating group of classes streaming for free 24/7. It's important to note many of the higher priced classes can include 10-20+ hours of instructional video, so it's actually a pretty good deal compared to some more traditional workshops or college courses. I'm going to catch at least one of the streaming videos this week.

Have a good week and thanks for reading!
