    Default Paddle To, Through, and Around Alaska- The Movie

    For those interested, you can see what I put together for family and friends to see. These video clips and photographs were taken during my canoe trip that I call “Paddle To, Through, and Around Alaska Adventure”. Edited all together, I suppose it could be called a documentary or maybe a video journal of some of the events that occurred (I’ll call it “the Movie”). Total length of the Movie is about 9 hours consisting of 14 parts ranging in length between 20-50 minutes each.

    I've been hesitant about letting this out but a few folks on a website called BWCA.com convinced me to let them post it for a little while. Many of the people on that website followed my adventure of 2013 as did people here. The Movie will be available for viewing up until about February 12th and then it will be taken down. If you want to view it, you'll need to go to their website at http://www.bwca.com/index.cfm?fuseac...TOKEN=58820186 and start with Part 1. I don't think you have to join that group to view the Movie but you do need to join if you want to post a comment there. Please read my intro and disclaimer first, though. Thanks, BeaV

    Introduction and Disclaimer

    The purpose of the Adventure was not to look at pretty scenery or view wildlife, so photography was a low priority. Footage was shot using simple point & shoot cameras not capable of capturing wildlife unless they were really close and I wanted to waste time taking a picture. Footage was shot usually during nice weather or breaks in the weather. Footage was not taken during miserable weather and dangerous conditions or when I was low on battery power or just too tired to care. There were many long periods of foul weather or dangerous conditions or both where I didn’t film at all. You will just have to believe me when I say the Movie doesn’t accurately depict the difficulties encountered as a whole. You may find that parts of the Movie are slow even to the point of putting you to sleep- that is fine! This is not some hyped-up, conflict-driven reality show that can make sitting on an island, picking worms or making moonshine seem exciting. I leave it upto the viewer to understand.
    The Movie is not a commercial venture- it is strictly meant to share my story with people interested in seeing more of what I saw and experiencing places I traveled through. This is only for your viewing pleasure- not for any other use. Do not make copies, post it on the internet, YouTube, or worst of all, try to profit from it. Copyright law type stuff- this is my story with other people’s music in the background. Please respect this.

    It requires a password in order to view it.

    You are welcome to post the links directly here if you like. We don't copy our member's content, so no worries there. The links will just go dead once the videos are taken offline. Out of curiosity, why would you take them down anyway? I think folks would be interested in this...

    The password is contained on the other site. So to view Part 1, click on "BeaV's Alaskan video - Part 1 of 14 - The Adventure Begins!", then look at the first posting there made by OneMatch. The password is contained there and it is B3@V5tr1p. Copy this and click on OneMatch's link. This will take you to his Vimeo site and then paste the password there. Then you can play the first video. Repeat this procedure for the rest of the episodes.

    As far as why I want this taken down, this trip was not done for any sort of promotion of a cause, product, or self; I did it because I just wanted to. The video footage and photos were taken for memories sake and to share with family- never intended it for others to view. I still have a hard time with letting out my story. The emotions, both good and bad, are still raw to me and I'm embarrassed for others to see them. I guess I just don't want the notoriety - "Bob's Trip Bob's Way" still applies.

    I also watched all of them. Thank you very much for sharing those parts with us. A lot of work went into the editing and posting--thanks for that too.

    Solo is certainly fun. Something I notice after some days paddling or cycling alone is my desire for music--to hear those songs going through my head played in tune and LOUD on a nice stereo.

    Wish you wouldn't take them down; there are more people who would like to see them. Like you said, it is hard to find accurate information about some of those areas and your experience might be helpful to others.

    Regardless, thank you again for sharing such a personal journey.
