THE DRONE September 17 2018, 0 Comments
GOT THE DRONE!Yippee, Yee Hah and Woo Hoo!Only took me about 3 years to take the plunge, and now, almost 3 grand later, I put it up for about 30 seconds this afternoon.I had no idea about all the preliminary stuff you have to go through just to get one of these things (safely) in the air. You have to be a cross between Albert Einstein and a rocket scientist. Or maybe I'm just getting old. Spent the last couple of days going through the process, much of which was just reading instruction manuals and watching tutorial videos (yep, I'm a bloody engineer). But it paid off in the end with an incident-free lap of the block a couple of hours ago. As a complete Drone Newbie I was quite pleased with myself.So now, stay tuned for all sorts of Drone Stuff . . .
Short Trip! February 23 2018, 0 Comments
Well we headed off down south and started visiting/filming dog-friendly beach camps around Esperance, only to be thwarted by bad weather. So we ran home again with our tail between our legs! But we'll head back before long, as there's plenty more to explore. So far we've covered Hopetoun, Mason's Bay, Starvation Bay and Munglinup Beach (before it turned to mud).
School hols are over, so it's time to think about getting out and amongst it again. We're planning on heading Esperance way on Monday for a week or two. They have dog-friendly camping and beaches out there, unlike our dog UN-friendly south west coastline. We'll take the cameras too and do a Vimeo episode on the area.
We took Holly to get some snake avoidance training - check out the video . . .
Perth 4x4 Show November 05 2017, 0 Comments
Yep, Sandie and I will be at the show next weekend, so drop by and say hello.
Holly the Caravan Dawg just can't wait to get away . . .
Well, the old dog died, young Holly's had her last litter and been spayed, I'm nearly over the flu - there are no more excuses! Time to start getting out there again.
So we just did a quick 3 night trip to the coast to shake some cobwebs out of the van (and us).
It was entirely non-eventful, and we couldn't even find a decent coffee joint in Busselton. But there's one thing we definitely have to give Busselton Shire 10 points for:- the beaches are dog friendly! That's right, signs everywhere saying "Dogs prohibited (December to February 9am to 6pm (or something like that)) and welcome off the leash at all other times (but pick up their excrement)." How bloody good and sensible is that! Especially in southwest WA, where most of the coast is national park, and decidely un-dog-friendly).
Keep it up Busselton!
I will shortly send out the final newsletter, and will be using this blog page more frequently for news items. So stay tuned!
That's right, the "Places We've Bin" collection from GN101 & 102 is now available online at my vimeo site, at a crazy once-off price that will get you the entire set PLUS any future ones at no extra cost.
Check it out.
Vimeo Clips July 13 2016, 0 Comments
I'm getting into posting more clips on the Vimeo platform now, and it's being well received. It's a great way to get new stuff out on-line in small chunks without having to produce whole new DVDs. All you need to do is join Vimeo
(it's fast, safe and easy) and away you go.
