Kensington, MD, August 27, 2014. — Okay. I admit that I know the rules. People just don’t watch videos longer than two to three minutes.
So… mine is a tiny bit longer – by a multiple of five. Even at that, I have around 3,000 unused still pics and 30 minutes worth of video clips leftover on the cutting room floor. Those who have hiked the AT will recognize just how much I left out.
I don’t claim that longer is better. I just couldn’t figure out what else to cut.
If I ever hike the AT again, I’d do it much differently. Among many changes, I’d schlep a big boy camera and not depend on my phone. I will give Apple some credit tho. The iPhones (4s and 5s) I carried did a decent job considering their limitations.
My next challenge is to chop this thing down to something under three minutes for use when I speak. I’ll save that task for another day.
Click on the video link to watch. It’s 15 minutes long, so it may take some time to upload. It might work best to click on the link and walk away for a few minutes until the transfer is complete.
