    Great report, especially loved the little humorous quips in the subtitling.

    The stick trick with the pullouts was great, I've never thought of that, but will certainly be borrowing that one.

    Thanks

    Had a good and envious time watching the first one....loading part 2.
    What program do you use to edit?
    Is it iMovie? The audio in real time does not seem to match up... seems a but off to me. Or am I nuts? Love the VOs.
    Had that happen before I up-grade my iMovie. If you detach your audio from your clip it will match up.
    Biking and hiking....right good.

    Hi there ofuros,

    Well not being the sharpest tool in the shed, I had to look up what you meant by ďrollicking.Ē

    Carefree and high-spirited,

    or maybe,

    boisterously carefree and swaggering

    From what I can gather, itís another way of saying, ďhappy go luck,Ē which would be pretty right. I like my walks to be like a magical mystery tour... Itís magic if I manage to find my way to the start of a hike and itís usually a mystery to me where I go from there. lol Thanks for leaving a comment and thanks for adding a new word to my vocabe, no, vokabry, no thatís not right, vocabu... my talk list.

    Thanks, HamMike! Good to know you got the silly text comments too, that's two who did!

    What type of camera... Iím glad you asked! Itís a Kodak Zi8:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7qPzfjtDmI

    Itís a fairly crappy cheap camera that works ok if it is on a tripod. The lightest most compact tripod I could find is the Zipshot.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z_aiWAaHTs

    The two together are great for hiking. I carry it by poking the tripod between me and the up and down ways strap on my pack. It sits down the bottom at hip level with the camera sticking out the front next to the hip belt pocket (like a sword). Super easy access, which makes filming quick and easy. I also use it to film the shots of me walking, sometimes as a walking stick, and as a clothes line.

    Yeah Fronkey, itís one of those places that is good for the optic nerve. Everything looks close and big. The stick trick is pretty nifty! It canít always be used, but itís a good trick to have up the old sleeve. If the cord you have attached to the pullouts isnít long enough sometimes, and youíve got a bit of spare cord, you could extend it and use the trick a little more often.

    Hi catavarie, the little humorous quips in the subtitling gave me a bit of a laugh during the editing. Iíd think of it, add it, play it and get a bit of a laugh from it. Itís good to know you did too. Itís just a bit of fun! You can borrow the stick trick any time you like! Itís a very solid way to pull out the pullouts.

    Well hello Mr Shug!

    I thought of you while I was out strolling around. You would of had a great time out there! Lots of props for a person with your skills!

    No, I donít have a Mac , so I donít think I can use iMovie. Iíve been wondering which editor you use... now I know, I need a Mac.

    I see what you mean though! The sound track is a bit all over the place. And itís not just this video either - or you. I had a look at some of the other videos Iíve made and they do it too, to some degree. Iíve tried quite a few editing programs (there are some crap ones out there) and found problems with all of them. The one I ended up buying is ďPower Director 9 Ultra 64.Ē

    It all works really well in the editor (which is why I bought it), but, goes out of wack during the processing and uploading to YouTube. Thank you for the ďdetach your audio from your clip it will match upĒ tip. Iíll make a 2 or 3 minute video and do some testing. I havenít noticed it, because once I upload a video, I just have a quick look to see if it worked, but havenít ever looked close enough or long enough to notice the out of wack audio. Very disappointing!

    So, are we going to see you out doing a unicycle hike? It would be pretty funny to watch, especially if you do it in a touristy place. On the unicycle, pack on, fancy hat, cigar, juggling something strange and singing some opera. A real head turner! lol

    Thanks for watching and taking the time to point out the wacky audio, Mr Shug! Iíll get it working right before the next trip report!

    Hi JayS,

    I like that! You just gave me an idea for a video title... ďBruciehi5ís Excellent Adventure.Ē Although I think Bill and Ted have already made a movie with a name like that. They must have stolen my title idea, that you gave me, before I thought of it. Itís probably better that that doesn't make sense. Good, you got the gist of the silly subtitles too. Thanks for having a watch, JayS.

    One of the best videos I have watched! It had it all, beautiful scenery, babbling brook, rain, sunshine, and best of all, fabulous commentary delivered humorously but with some neat camping tips!
    I felt like I was out there hiking with you. You would be a fun hiking partner! Your enthusiasm is contagious.

    My favorite hikes are ones that follow creeks. The rock hopping takes the monotony out of trudging and I love the sound of the water.

    I've subscribed to your YouTube and I hope to see many more enjoyable videos in the future!

    I hunkered down and had a good time watching part 2. I also like an Edge sized tarp.
    Look forward to your next adventure.

    Hmmmmmm, Maybe I liked the quality of the videos, because I use the Kodak Zi8 also And you are right, without a tripod it tends to get a little wavy (rolling shutter is the technical term for it, I think). I know this is off topic, but how do you like the Zipshot? I've been checking them out on the internet. Any big problems with it?
    Well, Thanks again for sharing your adventure.
    Happy Trails,

    Bruciehi5, really enjoyed the trip, the video, the humor, and the subtitles. Reminded me of Monty Python in a way. Not so sure that 'Whoo Buddy' translates all that well into Aussie--there must be another phrase for that! Thanks for taking us along. Looking forward to more adventures in the future.
