Fun with Zip Lines

By , August 20, 2009 12:01 pm

The day we arrived in Gatlinburg, we went zip lining with the family at Zip Gatlinburg.  I had the camcorder and got some decent shots of everyone on the lines.  I had to strap it to my wrist, so I didn’t get any good shots of me zipping, but I tossed in one very jerky clip just for kicks.  The video is about 5 minutes, shot at various resolutions.  I’m still figuring out how my camera, video software and Youtube interact, so there it’s letterboxed.  I think it’s actually YouTube that’s doing that, as the rendered video is fine.  I may swap this out for the Blip.Tv player if it’s any better once this is uploaded.

Mountain Roads

If you’re curious what it’s like to drive a 30-foot RV up and down a mountain road, I made a short video of our trip down the mountain from the cabin in Tennessee.  It’s shaky, as the camera was being hand-held, but it’ll give you some idea of what you can do with an RV if there isn’t anyone in the way. 😉
