Great idea will use this next time!

We went camping last weekend too, though not in the Elise. Two scouts and our gear filled up my wife's SUV. But boy driving on those TPWD park roads made me wish I had the Elise with me - might have to trailer her with us next time.
She is! & do it! totally worth it!

Well I try to keep the viewer entertained haha. Thanks for sharing that camera, really cool. Never seen anything like that before, maybe in the future I will get such a thing. Aside from that, I have a few different tripods I can connect to the cameras one being small and fits perfectly in my hand when closed and its pretty good to stabilize, I just couldn't find it in the rush to get packed up and get out to Brazos bend before dark! Will try to work on stabilization in the future though and thanks for the feedback

My shift light is blinking because I disabled my immobiliser. Anything after that I don't know why, but I haven't had a problem and I have been running it like that for probably at least 6 or 7 months, its a bit annoying but that's it. I ordered a shorter belt and bypassed my a/c comp so maybe that's why? The pulley started throwing sparks on my a/c comp and almost caught car on fire while driving down highway lol. The seats were done like that before I got the car so unfortunately I can't tell you anything about them except they are wayyy more comfortable then anyone else's I have sat in. I actually did an 8 hour trip to Arkansas with a fully loaded car and it was a breeze there and back (I filmed this too in my earlier videos). I wish I could tell you more but I don't even know.

forkmeupscotty Nice videos. Started following your chronicles on and off lately. You're quite the storyteller.

In case you feel like you need to upgrade your camera in the future, look into getting a handheld gimbals for cameras. It'll be perfect for the type of shooting you do, and it should greatly reduce unwanted camera shakes.
I've been eyeing a few different gimbals for my GoPro, but the OSMO that was very recently released from DJI(better known for their quadrocopter drone Phantom) seemed very promising.

102ndcar It would be a shame not keep sharing.. there isnt enough lotus videos out and about!

My car is no garage queen, I drive it, rain or shine, if something breaks.. I fix it

Nice! I have taken mine fishing, but I won't drive on sand, dirt/sand is one thing I wont do in the car. I take the truck for surf fishing!

I've taken mine fishing, to the beach a few times. Weekend trips.

Like the aerocatch boot latch.

vaughn Very nice! I'm happy you decided to post again. It was really a shame someone had nothing better to do than discourage your efforts last time.
