First Flight

Please meet “Mocha’s Spark”!

“Mocha one-five, cleared for takeoff runway zero-one”

I got the Spark out for its first flight. It started with very overcast skies, then a little sun, but the wind was steady around 10mph. Not being one that has ever even played a video game, it’s going to take a bit of time to get used to the controller and the orientation of the craft.

Here is a short video of some of the random clips I shot while playing for my first time.

One of the best things about Outdoor Adventures is sharing them with others that may not be able to get out themselves. Anyone that knows me, knows I always have a camera with me and filming anything and everything. Well, I have now added a DJI Spark Drone (a.k.a. “Mocha”) to my list of gear that I will be bringing along with me.

Over the past 35 years of my adult life, I have gained a very diverse portfolio of adventures from which I have been blessed to be a participant. This wealth of experience and knowledge has defined my character, my morals and values and my healthy respect for people and the great outdoors. It is a true definition of an Outdoorsman!

All Trails Lead to Riches!

All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
