Hi folks,

I've been off the radar for a while now to the point where my membership even lapsed! All paid up again now and back into the swing of things. Here is a little clip of the recent trip the Mrs and I did across Australia. It's hard compiling a months worth of footage into a video but I think anything more than 5 minutes of viewing someone else footage of their holiday is straying into Grandad's slide night territory so these are a few highlights! Suffice to say I can't wait to get back out there.

Stunning. I could have enjoyed another 4 minutes easily.

Cheers mate. I have a heap more footage so will probably string together a separate vid when I get some more down time. Being back at work now and back to reality means that might be a while! Oh to live the nomad life forever!

Thought I might add to clear up any confusion that the timeline of the vid is not exactly sequential. Unfortunately my better half had to work so she ended up flying to Victoria and made the journey back with me. I was accompanied by a mate for the journey over as he is from Victoria and instead of flying home he decided to jump in for the long haul adventure. That's why there are 3 different characters that make an appearance!

Lovely to watch.

Would have love to have seen the pup meeting the crab. That would have been a laugh.

Thanks mate,

Yep the pup was a friendly little fella. We visited Fowlers Bay and from the moment we arrived he was nipping at our heels. Even tried jumping in the cruiser when we left. We would loved to have "adopted" him but I'm sure he would have been missed. A spectacular but very lonely place out there.

Hi Craig

That was great and thanks for sharing. I was surprised to see some cool weather clothing, as I thought it would have been very hot over there, as it was bloody hot here then.


Welcome back.



Cheers

Thanks Stephen,

Yes we certainly had some sweltering days especially on the way back. It got surpisingly chilly when we stayed at the Weebubbie Cave site near Eucla when the sun went down and also in Cape Arid NP in WA at the end of our trip. We ended up using the info you shared and trekked down to the bight along the dog fence. That was amazing, in fact the timelapse sequence in the video is shot there, we found a great spot nestled in the Ocock dunes just east of the fence and stayed a couple of nights there. So much to explore, never enough time!

what amazes me is the amount of Australians who have not done the trip east to west or reverse it is a totally unreal landscape '

I have done the trip by road car , bus and train and by ship (fairstar migrating to Australia from the uk )

One thing I love is by train all the back packers wake up around 10 am and all ask same question there is no wild life out there

my answer is always the same early morning

O and one final funny comment

farmer from NZ was on the train and a couple had got on at cook there car broke down and it was towed some where so the were driven from Nulibore road house to cook

The NZ farmer asked me how far away was the road house

my Answer just down the road not far

he came back several hours time it is over 100ks yes just down the road lol

he just was not used to traveling such huge distances

Craig,

did you know you can embed the video straight into your post. All you need to do is use the embed video button (when creating the post) and then insert the identification number of your Vimeo clip (good choice on using Vimeo). A lot better than using a link.

Great video by the way. Presume a lot was shot with a Gopro?

Cheers Mick

Hi Mick,

Thanks for the tip will remember that for the next one.. Yes you are correct it's all shot on a gopro. I have a DSLR as well which I shot a small amount footage on but mostly just keep that for stills. The GP is great to just have on a pole mount in the front. Much easier than setting up the rig!

Great video Craig.

What editing software do you use?

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Thanks mate. I just used the latest version of iMovie which is pretty good. It helps to have a machine with a decent amount of ram otherwise it can be a bit slow going but you can get great results considering its free software.
