My trip to Key West for my "Two Weeks"

This is a collection of videos of my trip to Key West, Florida July 2 - 18, 2010 for my "Two Weeks" for the reserves. Although there isn't much "narrative" to this film as a whole, everything is show in chronological order. I'm a Seabee in the U.S. Navy Reserves and my battalion was tasked to build two pavilions for the Truman and Trumbo Point annexes. Not surprisingly, things didn't go according to plan but we did what we could. Sorry if this video is confusing. If you have any questions just ask.

The "Roast or Toast" of Chad9976

Well here it is - the "Roast or Toast" of me (Chad9976). I received about 35 responses - some via YouTube video responses to the "Midder June Vlog" and some via direct email. I was absolutely flattered that so many people out there wanted to either pat me on the back or elbow my ribs (or both). I tried to include as much footage from each respondent as possible but due to time constraints almost everyone's video was trimmed a little (although a few people who did very creative/funny bits earned extra time). These videos are in as random of order as possible, it's not in order of preference or anything. I think the entire 16-minute epic is entertaining from start to finish (but of course you'll be the judge of that). Thanks again to everyone that responded. Be sure to check out the channels of all the respondents here: Here's a playlist I made of all the individual "Roast or Toasts" on the respondents' own channels: UPDATE: here's a video that just missed the deadline: geoffolehane

2010 vlog #14 | Roast/Toast sneak peek; upcoming reviews; see you in 2 1/2 weeks!

I'm leaving for Florida for 2 1/2 weeks, but you might not notice I'm gone because I'll still be publishing videos to my channel every day. In fact, I've already uploaded a BUNCH of videos including 5 beer reviews, a 2-part interview, this vlog and the Roast or Toast collaboration. I uploaded them all now and just kept them private, so when you go to your subscriptions queue be sure to check the older videos because by the time they go live they will indeed be several days to a week or two old. I hope everyone has a great 4th of July! I'll probably be spending me in a hotel room, ugh :(
