MSYETI_161004_01.JPG: Hunt for the Yeti Snowmen Lands in Flatiron Public Plazas!
Reported by Tod Shapiro for the Flatiron Hot! News
On October 4, 2016
The timeless hunt for the Yeti “snowmen” of myth ended up in the Flatiron Pubic Plazas today, as the Travel Channel joined a host of other media companies in taking advantage of the prominence and foot-traffic of the crossroads of “Silicon Alley” to promote their “Expedition Unknown” show with Josh Gates. On Tuesday morning at 11 AM, on my way to the NYC Seminar Center offices, I came across two life-like Yetis performing a meet and greet in the South Plaza, along with an impressive duo of ice sculptures celebrating the Yetis.People were lining up to have their pictures taken with the friendly snowmen, and taking the opportunity to chat with the “Expedition Unknown” crew. I couldn’t resist – yours truly got into the act and had my chance to claim, truthfully, that I had eyeballed a Yeti! Get your pictures taken with the Yetis, post with the hashtag #huntfortheyeti and join the crew of “Expedition Unknown” in the never-ending search! Or, second hand, take a look at our Flatiron Hot! News Video Clip to see the Yetis.

2016 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Seven relatively short trips this year:
two Civil War Trust conference (Gettysburg, PA and West Point, NY, with a side-trip to New York City),
my 11th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including sites in Utah, Nevada, and California),
a quick trip to Michigan for Uncle Wayne's funeral,
two additional trips to New York City, and
a Civil Rights site trip to Alabama during the November elections. Being in places where people died to preserve the rights of minority voters made the Trumputin election even more depressing.
Number of photos taken this year: just over 610,000.
