Teslin Lake Campground, Yukon, Canada

Teslin Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada
Here's a short aerial video of Teslin Lake Government Campground in the Yukon Territory, Canada. I filmed this with my 3DR Iris+ quadcopter (drone), using a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. I'm still learning how to best make these videos. This video was made using a GPS assisted "loiter" mode, which created much of the jitters. The Drone kept wanting to adjust itself to remain in the correct locat...

Alaska Trip - Week 2

After leaving Quesnel, we moved another 170 miles to the small town of Mackenzie (May 20th - 21st). We've been moving slowly, ensuring we enjoy the trip. Why drive all day, just to get exhausted? We may have some long stretches, but we're all much happier if we keep our journey to under 4 hours a day. Mackenzie is a little off the main route, 17 miles each way to be exact. But there were two reaso...

Our Alaska Trip Begins

Connie had a great time with daughter Leslie and grand-daughters Kaylee and Khloe at their "tea-party". We attended another soccer game with Khloe then spent our last day in the Seattle area making some final purchases for our Alaska trip. We left the Seattle area on May 12th and headed North to Arlington, WA. Using the Casino Camper website, we stayed a couple nights at the Angel of the Wind casi...

Moving North - Slowly

'll This past month has found us slowly moving North, towards Alaska. After we left Seal Beach, we spent a week at Fairways RV Park at the Naval Base in Port Heuneme, CA. We enjoyed our lazy stay there, visiting Point Mugu and catching up on some more computer work. After our week here, we moved a little further north to the California Army National Guard campground at Cam San Luis Obispo, CA...

Family and Friends

While staying at Borrego Springs, we tried to do some exploring. We took a day's off-road trip through MANY trails. The scenery was unique and interesting, but eventually we got tired of the bouncing around. Another day found us hiking from the Anza Borrego State Park visitors center to Palm Canyon. This was about a 5 mile hike. It was pleasant hiking up to the canyon on a relatively easy tra...
