    Wello, I used to windsurf there, nice place! Sterner stuff... You must have missed the bit where I got bitten on the foot by a Soldier Crab, screamed and jumped, then ran away. lol I like to think of myself as the biggest girly man on the Hammock Forums. I think I scream in all of my 9 videos, one time for about a minute. The water was cold that time, there was even a sign that said I could die of shock if I fell in. Iíve been trying to cut back on the screaming since then. Thanks for watching, johmar! Itís good to know that someone else in AU is enjoying the wonderful world of hammock hanging!

    Yeah, thatís all itís meant to be, a bit of fun, and a bit of a show around town. Itís interesting to see where hangers hang, hike, ride and in this case paddle.

    Your subtitles crack me up BTW.

    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.

    See if you can find a place where you can hire a kayak or canoe. Interestingly, I got into hammocking, because I wanted to do some light weight road bike touring. So, having all ready got 3 mountain bikes, I rushed out and bought a flat bar road bike, searched around for light weight, compact camping gear and came across the Hammock Forums. After doing some reading and watching, I ended up doing much more hiking than bike touring.

    Well, well, well, well, well, I didnít know that, and you bet ya Iíll be giving it a try! Stay tuned to see how well they work here! VERY exciting! Thanks for that bit of highly valuable info, XSrcing, Hammock Forums is great!

    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!

    Thanks again!

    Actually, I think youíll find that all the people here at Hammock Forums are perfectly ok, itís the rest to the world thatís a bit odd. Proof of this is tent dwellers. Having said that, there may be just a little question mark over the head of Mr Shug.

    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.

    Now...

    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.
