As I had noted in a previous post, the FAA returned my video and camera back on December 20th 2019. Of course, I sat and watched it multiple times and even made a video I thought about releasing on YouTube. Like I said, I made the video but then stored it away along with the SD Ram card for safe keeping.
I was contacted by another YouTube creator about joining him, in studio, to be on his video channel to discuss the accident. I gave it some thought and called back declining the invite, but, open to a possible collaboration in the future. I have been working on adding video to my Garmin 480 legacy GPS unit how-to posts found under my Favorite Links. It has been fun, and as usual, I shoot with no script just winging it. I have been known to wander off on a tangent a time or two. If you read this blog, you understand.
The compromise was a select number of photos that we would share along with the first video I recorded after we watched it back in December 2019. My emotions were raw, it was not easy then, the wounds were still fresh, at least in my mind. Today I felt different, maybe because of all that is going on around us and maybe because time has provided the necessary scaring to move forward but not forget. Somehow, we were ready, and today, with additional editing and even a short voice over, we uploaded the Accident in Photos video.
