Is this Jim Korkis?

I've digitized more of my video from my trip to The Disney Institute at Walt Disney World in November 1996.

I think our guide for the Disney Architecture class was none other than Disney historian Jim Korkis.  This is a freeze frame in front of the Team Disney Building.

Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii - 1998

Finally edited my Hi8 Video from March 23-27, 1998.

Primarily a business trip, but I took my camcorder along.

Watch on YouTube.

Highlights: Diamond Head viewed from the airport, my hotel, Waikiki Beach and the air. Waikiki Beach sunset, surfers and a bit of the Royal Hawaiian and Sheraton Waikiki (where the Brady Bunch stayed on their show and where I stayed in 1978). Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial. The King Kamehameha statue and the gates of the Iolani Palace.

As Seen on The Weather Channel & Weather.com

I was interviewed for a couple of minutes this morning on The Weather Channel.
I shot the video below and posted it to YouTube and they contacted me for permission to air and interview me. 

Of course, during most of my brief interview, they aired the wrong video...

...but at least they spelled my name right!

Chicago Storms - June 30 & July 1, 2011

Not specifically travel related, but some wild lightning came through Chicagoland on June 30 followed by some of the strangest clouds on July 1.

Here's some HD video (if you select the 720p HD option).
