Today, I went to the Gym for the second time since it reopened. It was so awesome! I had missed it a lot. However, being able to go back to the Gym will not mean that I am going to be outdoors less. It really does not. So after today’s Session at the Gym, I… Continue reading More Video.
I really love the Harz. But due to the immense Heat and the lack of Rain in the past few Years, a lot of the local Fir Trees were unable to defend themselves against the common Bark Beetle. And because of that, there are a lot of dead Trees in the Harz. And while the… Continue reading Mein Stück Harz.
A few Days ago, I hiked up to the Achtermannshöhe near Oderbrück all by my lonesome. On the second half of my Hike, I also shot some Video. And that was also where the Quality of my Fotos started to drop. That is because my cheap VND Filter added a green cast to pretty much… Continue reading The Achtermannshöhe Video.

Usually, I shoot all my Video in 25fps 1080p. My Camera could do more, but 25fps is the closest I… Continue reading Some of my Videos.

Today, I visited the Teich with the Intention of shooting some Videos since I had just found my old Røde Mic again. And… Continue reading I love the Entensumpf.
Recently, I advanced from the Silver Wandernadel to the Golden one. It took me quite a bit longer than getting from Bronze to Silver, but in the end I managed. This is my Journey.

Last week, I got my 24th Wandernadel Stamp. Coincidentally that is also the number of Stamps required to get the Golden Wandernadel. Back then, the Tourist Information had already closed though, and I was unable to purchase the corresponding Pin. Today, that was different. I managed to get there before 3pm and got what I… Continue reading Wandernadel Level 3
Almost a week ago I ordered myself a new Pocket Knife. I have not had one since I lost my Victorinox in some Canadian Lake back in 2014. My new Knife arrived yesterday. And I really like it. It is ergonomic, easy to use and almost too sharp. The frame lock might be a little… Continue reading Pocket Knives.
