  • Wow, terrific footage -some of the best I’ve seen.

    It gives you time to see – beyond a doubt – how stupid it is (especially) to build large-scale developments on the unprotected part of a barrier island.

    We need iron-fisted controls (from the state) to protect people from themselves and the usual pack of short-term hit-and-run developers. STOP UNPROTECTED DEVELOPMENT. It costs us ALL.

  • Give Bolivar back to nature.

  • And please give that song back to the toilet, jeebus I can hardly watch the video without wanting to jump out of the chopper.
