    Video Of The Wild Flower Hike In Ga

    Here's a video that our leader of the Atlanta Wilderness Backpackers Dmitry or MR. Monkey took of us two weeks ago at the Ft Mt State park. He's really getting good at his video skills.

    No bugs, flowers, or plastic burning was harmed/done during the filming of this video

    Great video quality and content. Nice to see someone use an alternative to YT once in a while. Thanks for sharing.

    Tarp campers are livers with nature and intimately know not only wind and bugs but also sights of moonlit clouds and shooting stars and dawn, scents of pine needles and flowers and grasses.their nights are as memorable as their days.

    Thanks MosquitoFood! Mr. Monkey carries some fancy equip with him, nice resolution. Sorry if this is a dumb question: what does YT stand for?

    Nice trip video ... but I keep getting tickled by your camera man's voice ... kept envisioning Lawrence Welk behind the camera (you might be too young for that memory)

    YT is YouTube

    YT=Youtube....dooah!! I should have known that one

    Dmitry (Mr.Monkey) is from Russia and you should hear him tell jokes at the campfire...funny! His accent is not as bad as it used to be, he's getting much better. I like some of his narrations , it kind of gives it an international feel, much like when they use Australians or the English to narrate a documentary or sell sham-wows thingys.

    Sorry there weren't allot of hammock shots. We have a few forum members that are Atlanta wilderness members too. Dmitry is a grounder, so taking cool shot of the hammocks isn't that important. Too bad, I had mine on a steep slope and it looked bad *** with my poncho tarp.

    Thanks creativeKayt! Wild Bill is doing good, I check on him daily. We had some close calls on this trip. Dmitry almost stepped on that rattle snake and Wild loosing his eye. Things would have been allot different if we were on one of our regular trips in the wilderness far away from help.
