    Trip report from Zeeland, The Netherlands

    Hi list,

    First of all: a big thank you to all of you who write, photo and video shoot trip reports!

    Finally got kind of a decent camera and got out to play with it in the woods.

    Just a quick overnighter in Zeeland, The Netherlands, with a brand new convert, Alex, aka Grizzly (being 6'6" and 300 lbs, we also call him Tiny) that I wanted to share with you.

    Some trail stuff, some gear and just having fun. Always trying to learn and since all this videoing is kinda new to me would appreciate your comments. And if not, well just thanks for your interest anyway.

    Wrote a bit about it on my blog too but here is the embedded vid



    Thanks.

    Grtz Johan

    B2R-another glimpse into another world! Thank you very much. I totally agree the raindrops on the water in the early morning was beautiful. When I saw the sea I thought
    'Zeider Zee' and at the same time a little boy sticking his finger into a dyke. Also noted another European (you) speaking my language better than a lot of Americans-speaks volumes though the meaning escapes me. Thanks again.
    Well I just woke up ,instead of nice tea I'm planning on a robust joe cup.

    So am I this opportunity was too good. Normal value is about $ 120 - 150, now for about $ 70. It charges with my micro usb cable which I use with my phone and e-reader too and is waterproof/resistant. Great for starters... Glad you liked it.

    Yeah 6'6" and 300 lbs and even though I thought that hammock could never be comfy, he liked it a lot better then the ground. But heck I am preaching to the choir here

    Blushing from the compliments I guess. Enjoy your cuppa joe. Just found me some nice new coffee from the asian shop. Hopefully will make the next vid! It's an acquired taste to say the least ....

    Thanks for the take along! Looks like you had a good time! Really was amazed how close those three cities were when you up on the tower.
