2016 was definitely an intersting year for elevator photography. I, for the first time since ealry 2012, went outisde Nebraska to film elevators, as well as went out west to find and film elevators! I was able to go to Grand Island, Kearney, Norfolk (up north), Council Bluffs IA, and Maryville MO.
I have also graduated UNL so I hopefully will get out more, but then again, I moved to Omaha so it depends on how you look at it.
If yout thought 2015 was the Year of the Mod, you haven't seen 2016 content yet! Only three elevators got modded in 2015 that I was able to salvage original content for. In 2016, TEN elevators were lost! The details on that will be presented, as I am planning to make a "Elevators lost in 2016" video again.
I did not get any meet ups this year. It appears that it's something that always happens in odd numbered years. 2013, then 2015, and hopefully, one in 2017!

2016 was a great year for filming elevators, and I have bigger plans coming in 2017. I have a lot more freedom to go places than I used to in terms of money.
While I have the money to go places, finding the time to do so has been the real challenge.
Vintage elevators are getting modernized almost by the dozen per year! As I predicted, Dover Impulse will become the new "vintage elevator" by 2020.
