Videos from my vacation in Munising Michigan

8 posts in this topic

Spent the past week staying at Sunset on the Bay Motel rental 3bdr house. We explored everything that time would allow and we had the most perfect weather.

I use both a Cheapy Walmart special "Jazz HDV178" that records 720P for only $99. And a Kodak V1253 12 megapixal that also will record 720p. Right now I am in the process of editing the videos into something more pleasing to watch in HD. I should have some far better videos up by next week if my work schedule gives me enough time finish editing.

Finally finished our Pictured Rocks Cruise video. Next is our Glass bottom Shipwreck tour of Munising bay.

HD should be online by the end of the day.

Thanks, it looks even better on DVD playing through my Blu-Ray

player onto my 42" Flat screen LCD 1080P. I to have been amazed

by video quality with that cheap Jazz HDV 178 from Wally World.

Had it now for 2 years and still going strong.

The Kodak V1253 tends to be the most used though. Since having

it repaired only 3 month into owning it. The lenses assembly

needed replacement after it stopped altogether. Now its working

great.

    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
