      Thanks Sean! Yes, that's my voice. It sounds better than I'd expected.

      Yes, the narration is wonderful and I think it enhances what is already excellent work. You have a soothing, well-articulated voice that goes especially well with the background music and the genre of videos you do. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to play around a little bit (and just a little bit) with the balance between the music and voice tracks, but, yeah, the narration is definitely a go in my book.

      Last Tuesday I returned from my 2018 Nevada & Mojave trip. I'm still sorting and editing the hundreds of photos and videos. Here's the first video I've completed, "Nevada Nights 2018". It features some very cool time-lapse photography of the stars and Milky Way:

      Last week my wife Cris and I went up to Julian, a historic little town in the mountains east of San Diego,
      to celebrate our 35th anniversary. Here are a few pics...

      A view of Main Street in the early morning:


      Although it's late in the season there was still a bit of colorful fall foliage:





      More scenes from Main Street:



      Megaweapon and the Julian Gold Rush Hotel:




      We spent the night at the hotel, in their "Patio Cottage":



      The hotel lobby was decorated for Christmas:


      Breakfast was delicious! They served homemade granola, OJ, coffee, waffles topped with spiced apples,
      and fresh fruit:


      Megaweapon:


      I did a little night photography:


      On the actual date of our anniversary, Dec. 3, we loaded up the 4Runner full of toys and delivered them to the Salvation Army. That's become a tradition for us, for at least the past 25 years. Here we are at SA headquarters in El Cajon:

      Maybe I missed it before, but where did you get the front bumper?

      The only thing missing is a winch.............

      Ray, what nice way to celebrate your 35th anniversary. Like the fall colors.  We order pies from the Julian Pie Company...Delicious.

      The bumper is from MetalTech.

       

      I decided against a winch. The places I go, if I got stuck there usually wouldn't be anything I could tie on to, to pull myself out.

      I've had a lot going on the past few months, so I haven't been able to get out and do anything fun with the 4Runner for a while. But last week I finally got a chance to head out to the desert for a couple days! I left Wednesday night and returned Friday afternoon. Saw a lot of wildflowers, though not as many as I expected -- I may have been a bit early for the peak of the season.

       

      I've posted a full report with photos in my "Adventures of Megaweapon" thread over on the 4Runner forum:
