Great Lakes Coast Line Trip

Postby ichbinbier » Sat Jan 30, 2016 1:54 am

So after causing some damage to the bike on an old logging road and getting stuck in a beaver pond last September, I've finally got around to compiling the gopro pictures into time lapse videos.
I have an older gopro (the first 1080 p) so it would take one picture every 2 seconds. I then have to get them in order then compile them to make a video.
After that I edited my pictures and posted it all to my blog.

Here is the time lapse from the first day.

It was nice seeing no snow and blue water. Yes, you need to put more stuff on your rig.

Day six of the trip was going to be checking out the town of Goderich. When I pulled in to town there was a show and shine. I entered and came away with a door prize of a t-shirt and an ice cream cone.
