First Time: Learn to Sew – Making a Pillow

November 3, 2018 |

I have absolutely no experience with a sewing machine. Don’t own a machine. Never been inside a fabric store. This creative, crafty subject matter is absolutely foreign to me. I’ve been searching for sewing classes but all have skipped to projects that assume you are already familiar with a sewing machine, so when local Jo-Ann store scheduled a Beginner Basic Learn to Sew class, I was in!

Video: Learning to Make Fire for the First Time

June 3, 2018 | 1

Bill found two survival items while cleaning out his office: #1: Magnesium Flint keychain and #2: P38 (emergency can opener). Then, a lightbulb went off in his head. He remember how we experienced an Epic Fail in making fire while on safari in South Africa. It was as good a time as any to learn for future nature and wildlife adventures. See how he did with alittle imagination. Read More

February 17, 2017 |

Only my 5th time playing around with my new DJI Mavic mustering up the courage to fly it over water. The Mavic isn’t waterproof. Before this day, I’ve been immersing myself watching drone video how-to’s on YouTube. Read More

Boating: First Time Snorkeling around the Underwater Pipe at Electric Beach

January 3, 2017 |

Having a cousin who grew up in Oahu but currently lives in Washington, he showed us one of his favorite places to snorkel in West Oahu. Jumping aboard our 20-foot motorized Mako 204cc, we head out exploring for spinner dolphins and humpback whales to allow the sun comes up and warm us all up. We arrived where the local power plant was visible about 100 yards from the beach area. But what lies beneath… underneath the water are two giant cooling pipes that pump warm water out. The flowing water is more than strong enough send you doing underwater cartwheels but I called it the “Underwater Pipe Elevator.” Enjoy the video.

Explore Hawaii: Hiking – Found and Climbed a Hunter’s Tree Stand

October 2, 2016 | 2

Out hiking in West Oahu and found what I imagine as the dreamy tree house I never had as a kid. But I know hunters come to this area to hunt game birds, goats and wild boar so this must be their tree stand. I just had to climb and inspect it further. Wouldn’t you?! First time doing this. Here we go. Read More
