Looks like it was a fun hang. Not an huge fan of mosquitoes m'self. We actually have one of those electrified racquets at work. They work, but for that kind of mosquito cloud, well, perhaps a flamethrower might be a better bet.
Not that it would be terribly LNT, though...
Now thatís a good idea, a lighter and a can of fly spray. Hold the lit lighter in front of the spraying fly spray and it will be raining charcoaled mozzies. Yeah, that sounds like the go!
Watching your trip report has got me thinking about doing a rail trail bike ride Ė itís on the short list. Thanks for the two great ideas, FLRider!
I use dryer sheets here in the pacific northwest, USA but we don't get mosquito swarms like that. I am interested to see how they work there.
Another great video trip report, Brucie! Thanks! I love you, dude, but you just ain't right! Which, I guess, supremely qualifies you here as a member!
Have you ever eaten any of those crabs? Could be tasty!
I need to find out what. Ideo editing software you are using - especially the map section! That was very cool!

No, I havenít eaten any of those craps, poor little craps, theyíre too cool to eat! I googled it and it doesn't look like anyone else eats them either, which is a bit of a surprise, I suppose.
The editing program I use is called PowerDirector 10 (costs $$$):
How I did the map section was to first take a screen shot of Google Earth by pressing the Print Screen button on the keyboard. Then I opened the Windows 7 paint program, called Paint. Pasted the Google Earth image into Paint, cropped it to get rid of everything but the satellite image. Then I made the image as big as it would go on the computer screen and used a FREE program called, CamStudio to record me drawing on the satellite image.
I used the mic and audio recorder I use when doing normal videoing, out on the trail, to do the voice part. The CamStudio program does have an audio recording thing in it, but I wanted the sound to sound the same as the rest of the video.
I then opened both the video and audio files in PowerDirector 10, cropped it again to get rid of the buttons that can be seen in the Paint program, synced up the audio with the video and that was that.
