Just watched episode 2 , and 1 , on this Cat.
Overall quality of video and production on #2 video is about 50-fold over the first.
Totally impressed by that , and by what is going on in general.

You could become a relevant creator in that genre on YouTube.
Keep getting after it Scott

I have a CAT hat and CAT coveralls and have never even driven one.
You and Will definitely deserve CAT hats.

Amazing how well it runs.

Some suggestions IF you need more background music or music themes

About Spiders and Snakes, now when you're crawlin' around under neath that thing in the heat ever run into one or both?
Actually, Jim Stafford is a hell of a guitar player.

He's a plumb nut !

My first piece of owned music was The Best of Jim Stafford in 4th grade when my mom joined one of those record clubs , I got to choose one.
Spiders and Snakes was a big hit at that time so I picked it.
Wound up liking a lot of the songs on the 8track , about 50 years ago.
Still do
Good music behind the lyrics

Hey BVZ -

I have to use music that's not copyrighted, so my choices are limited. I think the only two popular songs that aren't copyrighted are House of the Rising Sun and Black Betty. Anyway, I use music from Epidemic Sound; have to pay a subscription but they have a fairly good selection.

Thanks for the input on the videography. It's always a compromise when you're wrenching and shooting a YT video at the same time, but sometimes the planets line up and I get a fair amount of work done and end up with some good content, too.

Now that I own a Cat, I guess I have to pick up some shirts and a hat or two.

Thanks,

Scott

Snakes? Haven't seen any at Will's ranch yet, but I did catch a coral snake in the garage yesterday. Brought him to a nearby Army base (Camp Bullis) to release him.

Are karaoke backing tracks copyrighted too ? (no lyrics)

The drone footages were kinda upscale .
Most of it was as good as a production crew format.
Sometimes the music was too heavy for the content.
Was thinking stuff more mystical and enchanting could be more in the middle of the road.
You did a great job , these are just suggestions for fine tune adjustments.

Have watched a couple other old dozer rescues now , from YT suggestion side bar.
One let about 2-3 gallons of water out of the crankcase before any oil came out , after sitting 37 years.
They got it running and moving
Old Cats are pretty amazing

Spent a week training at Camp Bullis in 1966. Not much of a problem with snakes but the luxury living quarters were infested with scorpions. I'm thankful that no one was dropping off Coral Snakes back then.

The drone footage is a recent thing. I've had a drone for a few years, but have yet to use it for YT footage. Will has a similar one and he shot the drone scenes. I agree that they really make this seem like a more polished production.

I hear you on the music being too heavy for the content. Maybe music similar to the bonus footage at the end for the intro.

I'll check on the karaoke versions of those songs.

No shortage of dozer rescues on YT! Will and I rescued a monster 1959 D7 a few months ago - three videos in the series, here's the first - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBif6E-jFNQ

Thanks,

Scott

I'm not a big fan of scorpions! We had them in our garage when I was stationed in Italy, but I haven't seen any here.

FYI - we live about 2 miles east and 2 miles south of Bullis. San Antonio has grown to where there's no real buffer any more between residential San Antonio and Camp Bullis.
