Terry: That's Funny. Something to think about.
Yuri Del Castillo: +Coastal Empire He also has his left hand in case\nhis right hand gets tired. . .
Shane45: Worst thing to do is dwell on it dude. Half the population is female and the one that is meant for you is out there. Please don't get discouraged. Your videos are outstanding even with the backup equipment. ROCK ON!
kornfreak78: Sounds like Morgan made the choice FOR you… Sorry to hear it man. Try to keep your head up. Look at it this way… she wasn't the one. It's better to find out sooner than later. That's how I feel anyway. Look at it this way… you live an AMAZING life that some of us (much like myself) can only DREAM about… I would literally give anything to live your life. It's been my dream for several years… it's why I am a fan of yours in the first place. I get to live vicariously through your videos. It's the closest i'll ever come to that life. I just don't have the finances to ever make it a reality. So yeah, just focus on the good… life can get lonely, sure, but at least you have a great life. That would definitely be my mindset if I was in your shoes. Anyway… take it easy and keep your head up.
Craig Lee: Sorry to hear about Morgan. Hang in there.

sullydude24: House of the seven gables, also in Salem! If you're stuck for a place around Marlborough, my driveway is open for boondocking. Electric and water available if needed. I know you tend to stay by the coast, but just in case. Maybe hit JFK presidential library in Boston, it's on the water. The USS Constitution is cool, but in dry dock for restoration.
Tatiacha: That's too bad about Morgan, she seemed like a sweet girl. Sucks when something doesn't work out even when your life isn't filmed, but when it's all out there with all the opinions on youtube its a little extra crap to deal with. Stay strong there is someone out there for you :-)
Lynnx Wilkinson: I thought maybe you were there also to see Jeb from Into the Mystery 13!
