I have never been this active on youtube before. I decided to start up my channel when I first got my own set of wheels. I was inspired my Halomastermind117, Michigan Dashcam, and xSupaD to start up dashcaming. Those were the first people that I started watching when I didn't have my vehicle. There has been some conflicts with some other people, whom I may not name, but we are friends now. I have never seen this many views before on my videos. My first video wasnt the best but I have improved my editing skills as of today. My First Dashcam Video vs My Recent Video
I thank you all for being awesome and leaving feedback on my videos
Hey welcome to the community. Sub'd now It's great you found us, how'd you hear about ProjectRoadRush?
Nice you have a front and rear cam, blackvue?
I use my iphone now as my dashcam in my truck, the A118 I was using I put in my moms van. As for my rear camera goes, I use a GoPro Hero. I am getting the G1HW for a actual dashcam when I get my window repaired.
I found this site in someones description box on YT.

I posted this in "Today's Road Encounter" and I thought to share it on this side also.
3 things happened to me today:
1. Im helping my friend move to his new house. It was a hour and a half drive to get to the trailer he was staying at. We done packed everything up and proceeded to the interstate. My friend drives a 2008 Toyota Camry. He drives it like nascar. Within 2 minutes of being on the interstate I lost him. I had to call him to tell him to slow up some. He did that after 10 minutes of weaving in and out of traffic. I brought my other gopro to go in his car. He has his own video and he said I could post it.
2. It was on the interstate as I was following my friend. So im doing 75 talking on the phone via speakerphone to my friend. Im on the fast lane pushing 75-80 on the interstate. A person doing 60 decided he wanted to pass a semi. Keep in mind Im doing 75-80. He cuts me off, I lay on the horn. Then he decided to push 70 weaving in and out of traffic. This was recorded on my dashcam and on my friends side also, he has a bluetooth connection.
3. Im coming home at 9 pm. I put 60 miles on my truck today. Im back on the 65 mph road that leads to my house. Im crusing at 60, I nearly get hit, my some person going 75 on the left lane coming to right. I beeped and flashed late so....yea
I was prepared for some crazy stuff today. I have two 32 gb and one 16 gb mini sd. I filled up the 32 gbs about half way and the 16 all the way. One 32 gb was in my friends car. Im not driving for the next two days except from work and back. My actual dashcam saves in 3 minute loops while the go pro's have 15 minute loops.
With all that being done and recorded. I have my friends ride on a GoPro and its going to be easy to edit. 2 videos will be made out of all what happened today. My friends driving and mine. My friends is going to be a long video of somewhat and my side is going to be in episode 9. Im going to try to get them edited and uploaded by tuesday and wednesday.

The new camera is in!! G1WH is now the front and the other one is working its way to the back! The mount is a bit funky but I got it to work! finally get the little feature I always wanted with a dashcam....the water mark LA Dash is the one I put for now but I was thinking about BDSWLA, tell me what you think
Not to say anything bad, but as a guy from outside the U.S., I'd honestly get a bit confused if I didn't know you were from Louisiana, as LA is used as the common abbreviation for Los Angeles here. Using BDSWLA should hopefully avoid any confusion between Los Angeles and Louisiana, - BDSWLA didn't make me think of Los Angeles, while simply LA did. In the end it's your choice, so my tip is to use what your gut feeling says you should.

I had to remake my intro a few days ago and I found a solution to fix the problem that will never happen again. My desktop was cluttered with a bunch of video files from previous episodes. I deleted all that footage and it happened to include my intro videos. So with that being said, if i delete this folder that has my current intro videos, I will need to remake a whole new intro.

Be a Pro on the Road
PRR Tips to help you become a Driving Pro.
1) Don't wobble in a lane or hug a line, keep centered and steady. Being a predictable driver will save you from a collision.
2) Don't accelerate or decelerate quickly, smooth transitions help everyone including passengers.
3) Stay back from pedestrian crosswalks. It helps other motorists see the pedestrians, i.e. stop at that stop line.
4) Check around the pillars of your vehicle when turning. You might think it's clear only to be surprised by a pedestrian 'hidiing' behind your pillar.
5) When turning a corner, don't cut the on-coming lane. Imagine a quarter circle and make that your path. Being a pro means you don't need to correct your position after the turn to center yourself in the lane.
6) Always use your turn signal whenever changing out of your lane, and give that signal at least a second or two to alert others before actually turning. Too often people think that the signal isn't necessary. Those people should stop thinking what others need from them. Others, whether peds, bicyclists or other vehicles need to see what you are about to do to save themselves from a collision... so use that signal.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Pro Tips:
1) Walking or riding? Well look both ways even if you have a light. Do you really trust your life to a stranger and whatever condition or distraction they are dealing with? Don't assume they see the light or stop sign. After all, they have an entire vehicle to protect them, you don't.
2) Don't step off a curb without looking. Busses and electric vehicles (bicycles too) do not warn people of their approach with sound as there is very little sound generated by their movement or engines.
3) Practice good habits so that if you're ever distracted you'll more likely employ the good habit at the critical time you need it, to save your life.
4) It's called a crosswalk because you should always walk. If you're riding and want to use a crosswalk, dismount and walk. Walking gives drivers the chance to see you and stop if necessary. Darting across eliminates this important buffer.
5) Setting good examples will show children how to behave near a road, and in effect you will be saving their lives... so be a hero and save lives through your example!
