So I drove home last night instead of today like I originally planned. Currently the 30 gigs of pictures and video are being copied over to the file server so I can start writing up more detailed posts on this stuff.
First another quick note, the post I had previously on the 354 crash has just been updated. I found video from their GoPro camera showing the wreck in the first person. So go look at the end again if you want to check it out.
I got a nice video of a run on my safety boat from just below the time zone bridge back up to where we were stationed above the 9-11 rapid.
You can see there was a few times I stopped paying attention to the video camera and focused on taking the hits. My whole body was a shock absorber. I was standing and holding onto a rail within the cabin. Here’s the view from up on the bridge.
So as for the trip home, here a few snippets in video form. All that work and I didn’t get video of the end. At the same time, trying to get video of the end could have easily given me up.
Now I’m going to go cook dinner. I plan on resuming the count tomorrow night. We’ll see what happens though because I need to clean up and pack up for Boomershoot.
