In this series of videos from our VLOG, we are pedaling in the Palouse region of Washington. We have a little fishing interlude at Lewis and Clark Trail State Park, see grizzly bear cubs and eat our way from Pullman, WA to Troy, ID!
We’re updating from a cool guesthouse in Pullman, WA nestled in the Palouse region of the state. We are catching up on editing videos of our trip and finally got a chance to upload them to our Youtube Channel. Watch them to catch up on our trip so far!
In this episode, we take our Salsa El Mariachis loaded with bikepacking bags for a spin through Forest Park, Portland’s local gravel testing grounds.
We are getting ready for what we are calling our #GreatWesternRamble trip (you can follow along on Instagram). It is going to be a long rambling route in the American West with bikes and fly rods. We are driving a rental car, but hope to do a few overnight bikepacking trips along the way. Of course, the only problem is that we haven’t done a fully rackless trip yet. We’ve toured extensively with rear panniers, but this way of packing is relatively new to us and it is a bit strange (and frustrating, honestly) to be complete neophytes again. This first vlog on our Youtube Channel talks a little about our frustration with this new fangled “bikepacking” thing
The best camera is the camera that is the most readily accessible and the one you use the most. Period. We have a lot of different cameras for the work that we do, so it might seem a little strange that we’ve gone “backwards” and are using an iPhone. The truth is that we’ve shot lots of footage but they never see the light of day. The workflow of downloading them to a computer post-trip and then editing them is sometimes enough of a barrier that we don’t ever produce something from the stuff we’ve shot. In an attempt to remedy this and be more active vloggers on our Youtube Channel, we are experimenting with just using an iPhone. We messed around with it on our Lodi trip and got a glimpse of how we can use it for storytelling. Here are three tips we’ve learned so far from using the iPhone for shooting AND editing.
