Family Visit and Winchester Bay, Oregon

After returning back to the "lower 48", we stayed at the Angel of the Winds Casino on Aug 27th for the night (free, 48.215229, -122.183998) again. This was the same casino we stayed at before going into Canada. They've recently created a new dry camping area on the northern parking lot. Food is still good there. We then headed to Burien, WA and stayed at the Elks Lodge RV Park for 2 weeks (Aug 28t...

Telemetry Displayed on Aerial Video

Drone Telemetry
I was learning and testing the use of Dashware software with APM telemetry logs synced and overlapped on an aerial video. This video was shot at a overnight stop near Destruction Bay in British Columbia, Canada. Filmed using a 3DRobotics Iris+ and GoPro Hero 3+.Dashware lets you read a telemetry data file and sync it with a video. You can then overlay "gauges" on your video to show the telemetry d...

Burns Lake Municipal Campground, B.C., Canada

Burns Lake, B.C, Canada
During our return trip from Alaska, we stopped for the night at the Burns Lake Municipal Campground in British Columbia, Canada. This is a free city operated campground on the lake. There's a 3 night stay limit. This is a very nice little park. We arrived around 2:00pm and were the only campers there. There's about 7 sites available, and room for a couple more RV's in the parking lot. A few hours ...

Alaska Adventure Weeks 9 and 10

While we enjoyed our free camp site at Peterson Lake, it was time to move on. We headed back to Anchorage for a couple nights (July 13th - 14th). We stayed in the Sam's Club parking lot, allowing us to restock on groceries and do laundry. On our last night we enjoyed another Boomer get together. 12 of us met at a restaurant close by for more travel story swapping. Refueled and ready to continue on...

Alaska Adventure - Weeks 7 and 8

Halibut Fishing
We stayed on the "Spit" at Homer from June 24th - July 8th. As expected, the July 4th holiday weekend was a mad-house in the campground. We enjoyed our stay in Homer, but after a couple weeks, we were ready to move on. During our stay in Homer, we hiked in an Alpine Meadow at the Eveline Recreation Area (where I left off in our previous Blog entry). While visiting the Bear Creek Winery, Larry made...
