    Default Swan Lake Canoe Trail video

    Here is a link to my wife, dog & I's Swan Lake canoe trail outing a few weeks back. We used Alpackas but I thought canoeist might want to watch this video too.
    Enjoy!

    Very nice video. What type of a camera did you use?

    I had a GoPro Hero1 & Hero2. I also used my Olympus camera for some video but I don't believe I used it on the video.

    Thank you Will! I definitely spent the most time editing and looking over footage on this one. I really liked the GoPro backpack mount that Roger at VuVantage.com let me try out. I was able to get some really cool shots with it.

    I don't trim my dogs nails in the summer time. She runs with me on Campbell Creek trail every few nights and the asphalt keeps them fairly short for the summer. I have yet (knock on wood) punctured one of my packrafts and I have been extremely hard on them. As you can see from my videos. I don't understand how they hold up to the abuse.

    Great video thanks for posting. Those Alpackas may be slower than a canoe, but they're a helluva lot easier to portage! That new design looks like a big improvement over the old style ones w/the round stern (ours).

    I have yet to paddle an older model but they say this helps with both tracking and staying upright in the white water. The portages are made enjoyable with the ease & weight of the packrafts!
