  2. Great little series, Joe! I enjoyed the peaceful tranquility and beautiful scenery. Did you see other paddlers? Looked very quiet which was so nice! Go Pro for the shoot? Thanks for sharing your experience!


  3. Glad you enjoyed it. If memory serves I believe I only saw one other paddler besides ourselves that morning. I am actually using a Go Pro knock off. I bought 3 of them for less than 1 Go Pro and they shoot 4K video. Fun stuff to play around with and I hope to shoot some more video this year.

    Thank you for taking the time to watch and subscribe!
