Rod,

Great video. We visited the Child's last summer and had a good show as the temps. reached 80. I know how much patience it takes to get those pictures.

Thanks for sharing,

Chuck

I have to confess this is not Wasilla Rod, it is Wasilla Rod-ette (the DSW) [emoticon]

He made the account somehow and I have been the one posting ever since. I don't think he has ever posted here, but I am not sure. I need to get my own login!

Rod does not do computers/video. But he is a wizard with the mechanical stuff so we compliment each other quite well. He keeps our camper truck running and I keep our computer running.

When we were at Childs Glacier it rained most of the time, you can hear it hitting the camera's microphone and I spent a lot of time wiping the lens between shots!

It maybe got up to 50 degrees. There was still snow beside the road in places.

We were cheapskates and slept on the gravel pad at the north end of the bridge (where I filmed a bear a little earlier) instead of the campground. All that glacier noise wove itself into some pretty odd dreams. It was loud even that far away.

No, my front porch faces South, but I think I can see Hawaii.[emoticon]

Yes, that is the distillation of 2 days and a lot of hours sitting there. My camera is a Canon Vixia HF S10 and it has a 3 second pre record so I could just leave the pre-record running looking at a likely spot and when the action started hit record. Saved a lot of card space. I just wish I could have captured the noise! It was the best of thunderstorms.

Looks like it could be a bridge to somewhere, eh?


Used to go all the way to the mines with the railroad. You can see above the camper the date, 1910. The road is washed out bad not far from there. We went as far as a camper could go on every road in Cordova!

Rod-ette:

I started out the same, with Mrs Dunes starting the account, and I taking it over (the reverse of you) [emoticon]

Nice camera, with a 1/2.6-inch 8 meg CMOS sensor. You can't do wrong with SATA III and its price. Does that camera do p and i ?

Can't wait to see more vids from ya!

Cheers,
Silver-

Why, oh why, in this technologically advanced age, can they not produce RVs that don't leak??????


I just gave my camper away. The siding was delaminating due to leakage on a trip to Alaska in 2005. No idea how bad it was and did not feel comfortable selling it to anyone so gave it to someone who wanted to try truck camping.
