    Default Overlanding in Northern Arizona & Southern Utah , April 2012

    Long video of my 9 day trip. I'll update the blog ASAP


    Areas shown are in or around White Pocket, Lake Powell, Grand Staircase Escalante. Video camera was a Canon SD1100 IS held in my right hand....

    I was looking at stats and found that a Suziki 4x4 forum in Argentina discovered the blog's post on the Death Valley Radio Expedition. They appear to be ham radio enthusiasts.

    I enjoyed the video. You did a good job holding the camera level with your hand, which is not an easy thing to accomplish. Southern Utah is amazing. Nice rig for the trip. The sandstone photos in the slick rock areas are great!

    Thank you much! That is the first time I've tried anything like that but I've seen so many great videos here that I wanted to try making one myelf. I used M/S Moviemaker but I would have liked to edit the individual clips a bit more so as to cut down the total time to maybe 4 or 5 minutes.

    Jim you might want to download MPEG Streamclip as it is a free easy to use program that lets you chop up your segments before putting them in the video editor.
    I am not a master at video so if I find it useful then you know it is good

    Good job on the video & blog...I just wish I didn't have to keep leaving Expo to read all this stuff, I find I miss too much. But I understand why you do it.

    Thanks for the compliments and for understanding! I appreciate the pointer on MPEG Streamclip and will check it out
