This is the third year in a row that I've vlogged my time at the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off and the second time I've done so with my cousin Noah. This was definitely one of the best years yet with many more balloons in special shapes at one time than I've seen in any of the previous 11 years that I've gone.
In this episode, my cousin and I attend the camera demo day at the zoo, hosted by Mike's Camera, a local camera shop.
I've been wanting to purchase a new camera for a while now, so this biannual event was the perfect time for me to try out and compare a few different cameras and lenses without having to pay to rent them.

This year I had the incredible opportunity to fly in a hot air balloon on Labor Day Weekend for the second year in a row! Last year my dad and I flew in a commercial balloon (I filmed the experience as one of my first vlogs) but this year a friend of mine hooked me up with a couple tickets for my cousin and I to ride in a smaller private balloon. It was a very different experience as it was only the two of us and our pilot and since the basket was so small you could feel every little movement.
After our flight, my family and I headed to Gold Camp Road where we flew the drone and ate a picnic lunch. The next day we headed back to the Labor Day Lift Off to see the balloons inflate.
The channel trailer I made for JRM Vlogs took a lot of planning and work to put together. It ended up actually being my senior project that I showed at my graduation back at the end of May. During the process of creating it, I vlogged a good deal of the work I did on the various shoots I went on as well as the editing process. I hope you enjoy!
Joshua does his best to stick to an upload schedule of posting a new video on his JRM Vlogs channel every Friday. This is where you can find all of his vlogs chronicling his adventures and experiences, as well as exclusive info that you can't find anywhere else!
