    6 June 2014: Homestead Trail Alaska, with Porcupine footage

    Trip out homestead trail near palmer alaska, sunny weather and a pleasant trail that goes through birch forest, pastures, glades, across a couple little streams. Saw a handful of porcupines, a few spruce hens, a feral cat, couple adolescent moose and so forth. This video includes some porcupine close up footage. It may take about 45 minutes after this is posted till the video is available.

    We are so lucky to get to see these awesome videos! Thank you bro! Your skills with the camera are awesome!

    Cool! I watched it twice, and I'm sure I'll be back to see it again. I liked the shots of you riding up the creekbed, and the underwater shots. I guess that puts you up the creek without a paddle, doesn't it? I'm impressed, you sure have the log crossing technique down. You were a lot more friendly with that porcupine than I would've been. I remember years ago my chocolate lab got too friendly with a porcupine in my back yard. I got to pull the quills out - no fun for him or me.

    Thanks for another great video. I've always wanted to ride Alaska, thanks to you I'm at least part way there.

    Those porcupines are so cute up close. The baby and adolescent ones are unbearably cute, and have way less quills. Year or 2 ago one of my heeler dogs tried to befriend one and it didnt work out too well for her. My other Heeler dog tried to kill a different one and it ended up WAAAAAAAAYYYY worse for him. Its amazing what an effective defense they have against nearly all predators. That trail is so fun I love it. Its so nice to see lush green again after winter has faded into a memory.

    You film some great videos! The creek bed riding looks like a blast! I'm sitting here wishing I was riding, your videos take me to some far off place. Have you ever dumped it while trying to hold the camera steady? Got any blooper shots? I assume you are using a GoPro, are you filming in 1080p? Do you normally film an hour, then chop it down to 5min? How is battery life, do you have to swap batteries in the middle of filming. Do you have really fast internet that helps with uploading your movies? I have a Sony camera that shoots 1080p, but I'm thinking about getting GoPro to attach to bike, and use Sony for taking scenery pics. Sorry for the rambling questions. I've watched several of your movies, this is one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing.

    Those are some good questions! I have yet to biff it while filming first person. Generally I only do first person when I know the trail is smooth. Its shot with a gopro hero 3 and edited in moviemaker. Typically I shoot about 2 or 3 minutes of footage to get one minute of edited film. I have the remote, and i know what im looking for before I shoot so im able to get by not filming alot of extraneous footage. I bought some 1650 mah batteries which give more life than the stock 1050mah one. Extra batteries and chargers are really cheap on ebay, ($24 for 3 batteries and a ac/dc charger)typically I shoot one battery worth per night but always have an extra one along. My internet is painfully slow, probably takes like 45 minutes to upload one film of 6 minutes.

    Interesting info. Yea I could see that remote coming in handy. Suppose to be a new model GoPro coming out this year, not sure what time of year they release. I downloaded moviemaker, to give me something to look over. I may edit some race videos from the sony if the software will read it. Thanks for the info.

    I think I have seen nearly every video you have posted and I really enjoy them immensely. I keep waiting for you to stumble across Todd or Sarah out moose hunting No but seriously you are very talented with that camera and I always check out your videos as soon as I see them. There is one thing though. If I send you some primer and Yamaha blue paint would you PLEASE paint that front fender? It is soooo distracting to me. I know "function first" but I dont want to be distracted by that yellow fender anymore
