So you have to understand that you look up to go to the Angus. Don’t take. You can take the one get one today: okay, just be yourself consistent, be original original. It is key. Let them look for something different again. I know he’s good to us. Try out passed by us before you all those things for be root yourself, see the more you do that. Okay, this is Raya, be original. Do allow anyone lights, you you have to article so, for example, and again look outside all these things.

You will see lot of things about you with our words. Be cute, like okay, no buy a 91 see what they would think about. You is none of your business because momentum, econ optic, which business your business, you live your business. A cup is what I’m saying so, whatever they think about you, sort of a business.

It’S not an exact science that, like down to an a specific number, there’s, usually a range that will work, but typically the the higher you go, the kind of more Headroom you have and the more you can feel safe that you’re not going to blow that es Es e up because you’re pulling too much power through it. A common misconception that some beginners think about the current rating on es es is that if, if it’s rated for higher it’s going to make more power, but that’s not how it works, it’s not higher.

The number more power it makes it’s the more that it can handle to flow through it, so just realize that you’re not going to get more power out of going with a higher rated ESC. You it just is possible to push more power through it and without it burning up on you. Next we have input voltage. This is going to be really important because you want to make sure that whatever battery you’re going to use is going to work with the speed controller.

This is going to be listed on every product listing for every speed. Controller they’ll usually be a range it’ll say like 2 to 3 s 4 to 6 s, so just make sure that the ESC that you’re picking is going to work with the battery that you’re going to use or make sure that you’re picking a battery. That’S going to work with the sees that you have, then you have the dimensions or the size and the weight.

This is not as critical, because I mean they’re. Typically, es es are not too far from each other, but in certain situations, maybe you’re trying to be as lightweight as possible. So you want to make sure you have the smallest ESC as possible. These are all ones. I’Ve used on very similar setup so obviously that one’s quite a bit bigger than this one. So by using these, I’m saving some weight and different frames are going to have different widths of the arm.

So it may just bug you if the ESC is wider than the arm. It’S not a huge deal either way, but just something to look at is the dimensions and the weight. The next one is where it starts to get a little technical, a little tricky and I’m not going to go too deep into it and overwhelm the beginners, but this is the different protocols that the ESC is capable of handling. So how do I explain this? Simply? The protocol is essentially the way that the ESC and the flight controller are communicating with each other.

So it’s basically the signal flow, that’s happening between the two and there’s different methods and different speeds at which these can run. So when I say speed, what I mean is the way that the ESC and the flight controller are working. Is it works in a cycle, so it’s kind of looking at? Where is the drone or what’s the status that’s going on? What Corrections need to be made? Do I need to speed up these motors or slow these motors down and then it gives that correction and then it repeats over again.

So when you have a faster protocol when paired up with a fast enough processor on the flight controller, this is what’s going to make a huge difference in the way that the drone flies when it can very quickly make these little micro adjustments and do it without Adding too much signal noise or being harsh on the system, this is what’s going to give you a really smooth flying drone. The two main protocols you’re going to find our one shot and D shot, there’s a little bit more to it.

There it’s actually one shot. 125 and then in the D shot realm, you’ve got D, shot, 150 D, shot 300, 600 and 1,200. Essentially, the different numbers mean it’s a shorter pulse-width and essentially a faster refresh rate. At one point, one shot was like the bee’s knees. This was a big advance in the way that the protocols are communicating with the flight controller. But at this point it’s a bit outdated, pretty much any current ASC you’re going to want to use D shot.

So what de Chatillon call a big advantage to having a digital protocol is there’s more commands that you can send from the flight controller to the speed controller. So the two huge things that I use and a lot of pilots are going to take advantage of. Is one is, you can use your actual ESC to send a signal to the motor to be a beeper? So when you plug in your drone – and you hear those beeps – that’s actually the ESC, sending signals to the motor and the motors what’s actually making those tones and with D shot away you can take advantage of that is the motor can become your loss model beeper.

So when you crash and you’re not sure where you went down, you don’t know where the drone is having D shot, enables you to flick a switch on the radio and the ESC will make that motor make a beeping sound. So it makes it easier to find another big one that comes in really handy is turtle mode. So what turtle mode is? If you crash upside down using D shots communication abilities, you can tell the ESC.

I want you to take two of those motors and reverse the direction, so when you give it an input, they’re going to spin backwards and you can actually flip the drone over aside from it flies better. Those two features alone would be enough that I would definitely recommend you may as well just go for disha the difference in price between older one shot and the cheap, Disha ESC is very negligible. So at this point I would at least get something that has disha aside from that.

The next sort of advancement that came along with ESC s is having a 32-bit processor on them. So the pretty much best of the best you’re going to find right now is a D shot 1200 with a 32-bit processor. Having that 32 processor is just going to open up more features that a ESC is going to be capable of doing so now with the 32-bit, you can pull in telemetry information from your ESC, so you can know exactly how much current that each one’s pulling you Can know the RPM of the motor, you can also add and modify the tones that it’s going to play when it starts up, which is you know, some people have a lot of fun with that.

It’S not a huge deal, and it’s also just going to be more future-proof. More features that come down the pipeline are probably going to be created for the latest tech that we have and then the last main spec that you’ll see is whether or not the ESC you’re looking at is an individual or a four and one, and then in The four and ones you’re going to have different sizes, so this is a 30 by 30. They also make them in twenty by twenty, and I think also sixteen by sixteen so depending on which size of drone you’re intending to build that’s going to play into which size ESC you need.

You would probably want to go with the smallest one available, but you also need to make sure that it can handle the current and the input voltage of what you’re trying to build around now for some considerations when you’re picking an ESC, the first one would be Whether or not you’re going to go for a 401 or individual ESC, they both have their pros and cons. I kind of already went over this when I did the gear overview article, but we’ll do it again here, four and one.

Obviously it’s less parts to bahi. Only need one you don’t need to buy four of them. It’S going to be a little bit more compact, a little bit less weight because there’s a lot less wires. Speaking of the wires there’s a lot less wires to solder to because on an individual ESC, you’ve got four wires coming off the top and you’re going to solder three to the bottom and you’re going to do that four times, whereas with a foreign one there’s just Going to be the three motor wires need to attach for each motor and then the rest of the wiring is just going to be in a wiring harness that usually will just plug right into your flight controller.

So a little bit easier to build over here, but the upside of a individual ESC is, if you have a problem with an ESC, you only need to replace the one. That’S gone bad, whereas with a foreign one. If you have any issues, you’re replacing the whole thing, so in some cases it can be a little bit cheaper to go with a foreign one a lot of times. The price of these is less than if you were to add four of these together, but not always, and not always in the long run, when you’re replacing them.

Another thing to think about is the different sort of ecosystems of es es, so you’ve got BL heli or BL Holley 32. That’S the 32-bit version of BL heli. This is like the widest arrange and probably the most common one you’re going to find out there there’s tons of different es es available in BL heli. Next, you have kiss when you’re looking at kiss es es. It’S not like ble ble, at least the original vo heli was an open-source project, so any company can make an ESC hardware that ran with the BL heli software, whereas kiss is closed source.

So the only kiss hardware you find is kind of all within that same company and family of KISS. So, there’s not a hundred different es es out there that are kiss software compatible, it’s just whatever kiss is making, but the upside of kisses they’ve always been known to be very high quality and perform really well downside, being they’re, also a lot more expensive than a Year, normal BL, heli or BL highway 32 ESC.

Another thing to think about as far as kiss goes is: they also have their own flight controller and their own flight control software. So that’s kind of why I say it’s like an eco system. Typically, if you’re going to go for kiss you’re going to go kiss flight controller and ESC s and you’re going to like stay within that, it’s kind of like going Apple versus Android and then the other one that you’ll find is flight one.

I pretty sure flight. One ASCS are the same as what BL heli runs, but still just thinking about the ecosystem, it’s more of their flight controller that has its own hardware and software and similar to kiss it’s closed source. So you don’t find just random companies making flight one products. It’S the flight, one company, they make their own things and, like I said I do believe there is CSR kind of run, the same hardware as any Bill.

Helia see, and you can also use Bo heli es es with their flight controller. But it’s just something to think about of staying in the ecosystem. I think a lot of people who are going to use their flight controller will probably pair it with their ESC because they know it’s going to work well together, it’s been developed that way from the company. Another thing to think about is wiring and pin outs.

So, especially if you go for a four and one like I said, there’s usually a wire harness that comes off of this. So it’s going to be, like you know, six or seven wires that all go into one harness and some in some cases you can just plug that directly into a flight controller. But the problem is: there’s not a standard, so not every foreign one and every flight controller are going to be pinned out the exact same way.

So it’s usually a smart idea to buy it as a bundle by one companies, four and one ASC. That goes with their flight controller. That way, you know you can just plug it right in if you mix and match you need to look at the diagram of the ESC and the flight controller, and then you just look across and you make sure that they match. If they don’t match, what you need to do is pull the pins out of the harness and rearrange them so that they’re correct for the opposite end and then, with individually SCS.

The only thing to think about really with wiring. Sometimes the ESC is going to come with the wires already on it. Sometimes it’s not. They call it like naked. It won’t come with any wire, which is not a huge deal wires, pretty easy to come across. It’S just good to know whether or not your ESC is or is not going to come with wire. That way, you don’t get all your parts you’re excited to build, and you realize oh there’s no wire on the ESC s and now I have to order wire and wait before I can even build the thing so wiring harnesses and whether or not a does or Doesn’T come with wire, it’s another thing to think about, and, lastly, there’s price there’s definitely a range of different prices and speed controllers and there’s a ton of them out there.

Like a lot of things that I recommend, I would say, shoot for middle of the road. If you’re a beginner you’re not going to need the most expensive and the most advanced and feature-rich ESC to get flying, but you also don’t want to get the cheapest one you can find either you don’t want it to burn up or fail on you. You don’t want to have poor flight performance. The main thing is: get an ESC that has the current capability that you need for your drone, make sure it can handle the voltage that you’re going to put into it and, at the very least, get one that can do.

Disha 600. That’S going to enable you to have a beeper do turtle mode and it should perform very well, so that’s going to do it for es es. I hope this was somewhat informative. I know I didn’t go into too much detail on this, but, to be honest, I’m not an expert on how es C’s worked and for a beginner. I really don’t think it’s important to go into all the details of all the different protocols work and the hardware.

That’S on the ELC there’s a wide variety of es es that will work for you, so once again go for a middle-of-the-road price point, make sure it has D shot and it can handle the current that you need. That’S all this really going to matter for a beginner drone pilot. So with that thanks for reading – and this has been learn to fpv

3 INCH OCTOCOPTER?!? | You Build It We Fly It!

Are you excited, I’m sure, let’s see what, if I, what what okay? So it’s like a quark, so it’s two quad copters [ Laughter, ], some octo, a three-inch octo, but like half of its turned upside down, so the props can interleave, hey, guys, welcome to wrote a riot, I’m Loretta and now expand over today we are going to Be trying out a really weird drone, so this is something that was sent to Joshua Bardwell to check out.

He brought it here for us all to fly together. It was built by a guy named Victor, it’s his own, weird brainchild. So the idea is that this guy is going to sort of split the difference between a three inch and a five inch right. It’S not like your typical off to college. Rather, it’s like actually eight motors, like all facing up the same way. Half of its turned upside down, the other half is right right right, it’s got we had to offset plates and then the it’s it’s set up so that the prop disks overlap, because some of the motors pointed up at some point.

It’S super different, really weird, but kind of Awesome, yeah design. This is probably the weirdest drone that we’ve gotten to check out so far. I would say so yeah. So this is you build it. We fly it so he’s going to fly the octo first. Thank you. Wow he broke that Tommy’s hex the throttle, because Larry you’ve lost your pride. I want, I won’t crush it I’ll. Take it really easy there. You want car bells going.

First, no, that’s fair! Vincent did reach out to you and drew is a freestyle pilot. I’M sorry that I’m the only one that actually pushes it it’s so interesting. I did a flip. Oh no, he’s right he’s right. I crashed a lot less, but I also do a lot fewer. You impress the trick I like to take my quads home Andrew. Does it I just oh yeah, I mean I’ll fix them. That is so weird because it sounds like a three end.

Flip that thing Wow, not a lot of press coming down. Let’S do it again everything boogies now is this his chin I’ll make it up like this? No, no rough life, the ark that we’re flying today is actually on clean flight yeah. It’S not a beta fight or flight one or kiss, or anything it’s on clean flight, which I was a little bit surprised his tune and everything, though that’s the biggest thing. They may be that light features yep.

My big Victor set this up on clean flight because I think was the only one that is using that he could get eight outputs. You have to seal racing, you only get eight outputs and it is made for clean play, probably fix the rates. So I’m really impressed, especially with the handling it didn’t, feel slow. It picked up speed a lot had good handling and really good battery life and we’re flying a 1304 cell, which is you would we have your motors to? You would never fly that on, like a baby on three edge it’ll be way too heavy.

No, it looks pretty good for a good flight tests are using the same battery. You get use on a five inch flight time. Here is four minutes left 50m, where we’re resting at fifteen three, so I mean we could probably do I’m sure first impressions. What do you think when you flew it? It was different. It was. I was surprised first on how long it flew. I was really expecting. Yeah you’re going to be more inefficient.

I thought it was going to have like half the flight time of a five inch quad. It actually flew longer than some of my five inch wasn’t or about the same comparable times it had a lot of control yeah the biggest. It was the yaw authority, because there were so many motors. There was a lot of things that could spin up or slow down to get that because he all worked weird right. It spins up and slows down motors and uses that angular acceleration of the motors to counter spin them yeah.

It was a very locked and yaw feeling, and on top of that, it flew really good. It flew kind of like a five-inch resaw quad. It definitely didn’t carry it to momentum as well as a heavier quiet, even though the way no I’d be the same yeah, which was weird because it yeah felt like it would weigh the same. She thought it would toss right way, but it didn’t it kind of no in the throttle was low. Lighter did you think it felt it felt lighter in a white, but the throttle Kerr was a lot different as well.

It felt like you’re there’s really not much going on down low uh-huh, just kind of nice. You were trying to cruise down low and keep your line smooth, but then all of a sudden, the top and that thing is really really powerful. Well, actually, so then we started wondering: is it going to be faster than one of our five inch quads? So so we’ve kept my free stock quad with a GoPro up against the octocopter without the GoPro I don’t know exactly who won.

I want to say. I won but here’s the thing I definitely as I’m bad at going in a straight line because you would actually go and I would go up all this and what I noticed was at first. Your quad was faster. I was shocked, but it did seem faster. I would see you in front of me and then I think what happened was your battery would start sagging a lot more than my I did have battery sack and I we were using the same brand batteries it wasn’t it wasn’t the bad.

You know it’s the same battery, but I think that your your drone, the the 3-inch doctor after there’s, less amp, draw it’s not just pumping out thrust in four motors, it’s kind of less amps but two more points which God it doesn’t make sense it should. It should be, it should either all be the same. I still was make sense. I figured the octocopter would be way more inefficient, eight motors that sounds like more amps, and on top of that, because the props overlap each other, you should be losing efficiency yeah.

I noticed and notice with the freestyle too, I was able to do pretty long flights and it felt really consistent throughout the whole flight. In fact, I flew a little bit too long and over discharged all of a sudden yeah they’re, like oh, no you’re, dynamite, 14. Volts whoops, so you took the GoPro off and you went to just do some all-out ripping? Yes, Oh keep up with what you’re doing well as a spectator, you found the prop wash racist, trying to do as many corners as possible because, honestly, in a straight section, the speed felt a pretty pretty similar to my 5 inch claws and when I noticed the Corners is the control was really really good, but there’s almost terrified.

How did you do that? It just accelerated so fast? I was solving around the trees as fast as I could find going around a tree or something I’m trying to 180. If Ike the five-inch cloth kind of carried some Linton through, so it takes longer to stop it and then Rick’s are in the next direction. What was scary and awesome about the octocopter and I would stop, and they would just stop me there – it start it straight in the next slide.

I understand he reacts that fast. I just caught it Brent yeah. I clipped a branch as you’ll see in the DVR clip these branches. Turning in – and I I mean it flung me into the ground pretty good, but like not more than a five inch quad way it was moving, but not that bad. A five inch would have to that wasn’t going to take. It was moving like two arms yeah. You broke 25 % of this drone. The problem is because it’s a unibody as well.

It’S a lot harder to fix, wait and did you break one on each yeah? Yeah you’ve complete that’s 100 % destroyed, actually because there’s two unibody is that drone is 100 % destroyed. That is way way worse. Alright, by the way worse Jimmy, you can’t even feel the motors feel the motors, oh geez, that is nice and that’s not easy. It’S pretty hot they’re, really hot. I was just pushing it really hard, because I want to see how it would take a crash as well, and it was kind of fun to fly out of my comfort zone a lot.

It’S really really nimble. It’S really really fast. Do I like it more than 5 CH what I mean I’d like to until that, so I think what we could say is that if you race as hard as Alex Vanover, this might not be the frame for you. No definitely not. This is going to take a lot of words. It’S got a lot of potential, all right like it’s. It’S really. I think like on a on a course like this, where you have a lot of tight sections, but also a lot of sections where you’re going.

You know we talked about the prop wash and I wanted to address that. It looked like there was more props in like a tune, 5 inch, quad or something would have, but I have to note that it was turning a lot faster you through it. So I think, what’s happening is it’s turning so fast? It’S that’s a whole nother level of propwash that we haven’t got into it. Yeah in bracelet. You think it’s turning faster than you can turn your five inch quad.

I don’t think I can turn a five inch car around that fast, really, oh yeah. So there is a performance advantage. There is a performance advantage and there’s also the disadvantage, because it’s not because it seems lighter still than a five inch quad a five inch quad through us basics long will carry someone winsome a lot through this quad. I was. If you read the you VR, you can see it, I’m like forcing it through the slalom like pitching down into the psalm, to get it to keep going, keep the speed up.

So I really hope you guys enjoyed that. Actually I enjoyed flying it as much as I’m giving you crap for you being the one that broke. It look further, really record when you broken it, because you were going, it was all van over to frame. I hit this tree branch of actual well like I said this is just a passion project of a guy. It is pretty, it is pretty thin here, but let us say that for I’ve never seen anything like this before and for what it is.

It’S really amazing. I’Ll say this is really really great in and just because the first pass doesn’t stand up to the node and over full stand. Durability. There’S a lot. I don’t one I’m going to build one. We just tend to get so stuck in our our ways of life. Five inch quad five inch quad five and we don’t experiment yeah. I like I like experimentation me will that’s where that you build it. We fly it.

Series comes in Hindi. Absolutely, if you guys want us to fly something weird, send it our way and we are happy to just crash it. I mean thank you guys so much for reading this episode, thanks to Vincent for sending this awesome quad for us to fly and destroy, and if you enjoyed this episode, leave us a comment down below. Let us know what you would like to see us build. What we’re drunk, what we’re drone, would you like to see us to have sent to us what we were drawing? Would you like us to try and get a hold of and guys be sure to check out the rotor ID store link in the description down below alright guys, i’m Latrobe, I’m just Rivard? Well, I’m Alex fan over.

Are you guys for joining and we’ll see you next time?

Digital Marketing Presentation ~ Becoming A Digital Entrepreneur ~ Part 1

Well as a marketing professor. We are stunned by that amount, the number of people that are accidental of to be him, so we get to Stuart Alaska now and they did to Searle activity.

A few of you have okay, it’s a very beautiful place. It’S it’s right on the coast, and it has these big mountains called mountain marathon, which is right behind it, which actually run up the mountain during the summer. But would you like the fourth and it’s beautiful, with the Kenai for its Glacier National Park, which is right to the south, and so I go and meet even during the class? A Motorhome and fundamentally he’s telling me about his lifestyle.

Chris and G are what we would call digital marketing entrepreneurs he graduated from ISU in 2008. I won’t steal all his thunder, but fundamentally what he did was he chose to say, I’m going to travel and try to figure out a way of living and making a living at it. And so what happened? Was I formed a Basecamp team which is base camp set of project management? Software and Chris was on it he’s Sean with the era.

Who is the director of the student marketing company back there, and I would call one of the finest social media technician skilled professionals we have on the campus. I was in the background, along with doctormick Eska, dr Bowman, and we’re all coming Katty because we’re trying to help Chris, but we’re also trying to learn from Chris and what he’s doing, because it is not very easy. Going from just a few hundred people on YouTube to forty-eight thousand five hundred, I think, as we checked yesterday, and so when it comes down to is we’ve been working with them and amazing.

We were able to really help them in a lot of ways, and so we’re very proud of that. He’S also taught us a bunch of things about what he does and how he’s doing it. So in essence, what happened is you have digital marketing entrepreneurs in front of you? These people are literally going out traveling around the country going on national parks, beautiful places and they’re making a living at it. When I was growing up, I traveled around this country, but I could never figure out how to make a living at it being on the road and that’s, what’s wonderful about the digital marketing tools that you currently have.

You lived in a very exciting and fascinating time because of these digital marketing tools that are available so without further ado, like a warm welcome for Christian and Gina. Thank you everybody. So I first of all I’d like to thank everybody for coming in today. Those that were here yesterday and also those that came in today, this lovely Indiana weather I walked to class, just like you did so.

I appreciate you all being here today. So the first thing that I want to talk about today is just if you take one thing from this presentation today, one thing at all: it’s not about the digital market. You might know everything that I’m going to tell you. You might already have a plan in your head, it’s something that you plan on doing, but what I want to you know remind you, and this is something that started my philosophy on traveling and just kind of the way that I view things is that everybody thinks They have all this time in the world to do what they want to do.

But if the average age in this class is 21, then you only have 20,000 days left in your life to do what you want to do and that doesn’t include your senior years when you’re not able to go out and do what you want to do. So if you’re in a major right now or if you’re doing something, because your parents want you to get done with something or you feel like it’s a societal expectation to what you’re doing right now and you need a little slap.

You need to wake up because the fact of the matter is you don’t have that much time to do what you want to do in life every day that you wait to do what you want to do that’s a day late, that you’re not able to do Anything in the future, because you’re more free right now than you’ll ever be in your entire life and think about that, like literally tomorrow, you’re less free to do what you want to do.

So it’s very interesting for all of you and something that I’ve found out is: do you have all marketing majors graphic design? Is that pretty much the consensus of this room right now? Because if that’s your major, then you are free to travel the world? You can live from your laptop when we went to Thailand. We were living on about $ 40 a day, and that includes a bungalow on the beach that includes our moped rental.

That includes three Mills that we ate out every day and we were living on an island on the beach and you can work remotely from your computer and make 300 400 hours a day. So you can pay like put money back and travel the world. So, just if you take one thing from this presentation, I want that to be the one thing you take away for sure if you gather some other things along the way cool, but on a lighter note.

So, as you can see here, this is G and I the lovely, miss G in the in the back short for Regina. We travel in this class a Motorhome that we call Atlas. We spend our summers up in Alaska, like you just heard, and in the lower 48 we just kind of bounce around. This upcoming fall we’re transitioning into full-time work through our digital marketing. Through our work with companies, they’ve offered us the opportunity to take their gear.

Go from RV show to RV, show around the country and sell their gear. So now we went from the Alaska work, so in Alaska we had to have a job, because we were at a tipping point. We were spending more than we were actually bringing in. So we had to go to Alaska we’d, worked the tourist season and make a lot of money and then live off the YouTube blog after that. So we’d have a supplemental income and then use our money from the summers to you know kind of break-even for the year and right now we just barely you’re making a little bit more money than we’re spending.

So we’re at this very awesome tipping point. It’S very exciting for us. The presentation today will be a little bit different for those that were here yesterday, because it’ll be a little bit more about how I got started in travel. How I went from you know not really traveling at all to you know just living full-time out of an RV. What I’m going to do right now is show you a quick article. The article I want to show you is when we first got the motorhome.

My personality is just jump into stuff and see what happens. I don’t really think about it too much it’s like. If I want to do it, then I’m going to do it because it’s something inside me told me to do it and then I’m going to figure it out after so we get this motorhome and we’re in Louisiana. At this point, we went from Indiana down south because it was warmer and then we decided to take the scenic route and all of a sudden.

We got on this detour and we had to take this back road and all sudden. This bridge comes up and we’re not exactly sure how tall our RV is, but we know that it’s clearance on the bridge is 13 13 feet 9 inches. So I’ll show you this article real quick. This is just a little snippet from from our travels, you got to see the crowd chapter xlix, so that’s the basis of the blog right there. It’S just our misadventures traveling around in this this class, a Motorhome cuz.

I really don’t know anything about this thing. When I first got, I had no idea how it worked. We kind of learned along the road remember our first campsite. We actually stopped and figured things out. I sat outside for about an hour looking at the manual trying to figure out how to turn things on how to turn things off. We were little stressed that day, but we got it figured out, but now we, you know we’re we’re going along with it and its really helping out the blog is helping on our digital marketing.

But we’ll take a step back here, and this is my hometown of Montezuma Indiana and I don’t know if many of you are from small towns. This is a metropolis of about a thousand people. We have a caution light and you know about five churches in town. That’S about it, but there’s some things that I picked up from this small town that helped me be the person and the person that is just like hey. Let’S, let’s go for it.

If I want to do it, then let’s make it happen. So at the age of nine I was adopted by my grandparents, I was living. You know conditions that weren’t really that good for anybody – and I remember so my earliest memories are from that time, and from that I got the the impression or the idea that positivity can get you through. Anything like I went from a very bad situation to a good situation and that you know that kind of put inside of me this this reality that, when you’re positive, no matter what happens it’s going to be better as long as you stay positive, you go negative If you start going down that road, then you’re not going to get anywhere like you always have to be positive.

Also, it gave me the hard work ethic. So these these fields right here I worked on farms from the age of like nine to I guess my freshman year college. I still came back and helped out a farmer that I worked for and baling hay and detasseling corn will definitely instill a work ethic, especially when I think from you know the younger ages. I was making four dollars an hour, you know, and then it went up from there.

So I got a good work ethic from from this small town and then things progressed. This is a a picture from my first, my first rubber tramping experience as they call it. Traveling around in a vehicle – and this came about – because why was that? Is you after I graduated from my small town high school and went to ISU, which is only about 30 miles up north? I started get this feeling towards the end of my freshman year that I really wanted to get out and see what was out there.

The best way for me to do that was, in my mind, with studying abroad, is actually walking to my communications 101 class, and it was a lovely day like we have outside nice and nice and toasty out there and I sat down, and there was a flyer For studying abroad in Australia knows, I’m at a place sounds pretty warm. So I went to Jenna’s Halperin’s office and then I applied and I had a two-week window to apply and get accepted.

I got accepted right towards the end. I went to Australia. Two major things happen in Australia. The number one thing that happened when I started to go to Australia, I bought a whole new outfit, a bunch of new clothes. I had to roll a bags giant bags and a backpack I paid for extra baggage. I brought everything I brought my xbox. I brought literally everything that I thought would you know I’d need for Australia, which I really did it and I was rolling through in this, the scruffy guy with one backpack he was, he had a big beard, he just smelled horrible.

He walked by me and I just looked back at him. I was like man what’s what’s wrong with that, guy, like what what is going on with him like he needs, he needs some class going on in his life and fast forward to six months later I went to school for four months and then I scheduled my Flight to leave two months after that, so I did a total of six months in Australia, so I was backpacking around and I met some Australian friends and then we went on a camping trip right before I boarded my plane back.

So I hadn’t showered for like three days I had given away all my stuff sold my xbox. I I got a backpack for my British tran1 backpackers backpack and that’s all I had with me. So I’m walking through the airport back at LAX, and I smell horrible, and I literally saw people like doing like one of these, like kind of looking around see what the smell was. It was me because I was just like this – this dirtbag traveller now and I literally left one person and came back another.

That was a big thing that happened in Australia, and I remember it very clearly. I was reading Black Hawk Down is around 2:30 in the morning. I couldn’t sleep on the train and I was sitting there and I heard something on the side of the train. Next to me, it sounded like a like a bolt hitting the side. It was like tinging down the side of the train and I was like man, that’s really weird and the brakes went on really quick.

Everybody kind of jolted up and started looking around and my friend looked at me and he asked me what was going on. It’S like, I don’t know man, I heard something on the outside and I thought something happened with the train. I thought it was broke down and then the announcer came on and said that that we’d actually hit somebody – and I found out later that somebody stepped out in front of the train and committed suicide.

And what we heard was him hitting the side of the train. It was like his body parts hitting the train and I was just like holy crap. They had to stop the train, the bus came and got us and we were going into Melbourne. Australia – and I remember it was rush hour during the morning – and I was on this bus just like kind of I hadn’t slept, I’m kind of out of it and I started looking at the people in the cars going to work late.

Just had this look on their face like they were just out of it like they were just in this little zombie mode, and I was just looking at him and I remember very clearly, there’s a blonde woman with blue eyes and a ponytail and just a look On her face, I at that moment and people can look back at their lives and see moments like just like that that really changed their perspective and the way they view things.

That was a big one. For me, it’s like I am never going to do that. I’M not going to be a person, that’s doing something. They hate like working a job. They hate to buy things, they don’t need. So Australia was a big turning point for me and then after I, graduated oops must have pressed the button. Sorry after I graduated I bought this van on eBay for 1,800 bucks had a hundred and eighty thousand miles on it.

I actually won the auction over in the in the packaging lab over there at the School of Technology. I almost fell over backwards out of my seat. I was so excited when I finally won it, and then I I took out all the seats I put the bed back, but a futon mattress built some cabinets and threw a bunch of food in there and drove her out my dog for a month and a Half – and that was the reason why I did that was – is because you can travel very cheaply in a vehicle you pay for your gas, you can buy cheap food and you don’t pay for anywhere to stay.

I was saying in Walmart parking lots. I’Ve staying in you know anywhere, I’m staying in town and you know neighborhoods, because you’re in a van nobody’s really going to mess with you, and that was the first time that I actually had a the the realization that I could go out there and travel and Do it cheaply and see a lot of the world
