Very interesting vid! Especially from a technical standpoint.
I would like to know. These guys entered Santa Rosalia. Was the Dentist in Santa Rosalia as well? That`s not quite clear but seems so.
And if somebody reports from missions in Baja - David K is not far away! :lol:

Yes, the continuity was scattered.... and when she was showing off San Ignacio "oasis" campsite, I thought, "Well, I could see it if you moved your face from covering the shot..." :biggrin:

You brought it to the point! The continuity is confusing. Nevertheless the vid is good, no doubt. I like it. Lots of interesting Baja spots (even with the faces covering some) I also was wondering about the headline: How low can you go? That`s from the Limbo Rock out of the Good ol`Days.
"Limbo lower now". Chubby Checker.:bounce::bounce::bounce:

Yawn...
I made it thru 20 seconds of video and found it to be worthless crap. Meandering unstructured overly-long video travelogue in baja as if no one has ever done a road trip in Mexico.

Ease up goat, it was their first trip. Let's see your trip videos or any photos, any trip report at all. Right, I thought so.

I don't think they heard of Baja Nomad until I gave them the news that I shared their videos here... So, be nice, they are reading this thread.

Yes, they love history and that is how they found me, on Facebook. I have a Baja California Land of Missions Book group page, about 2,800 members. https://www.facebook.com/groups/bajamissions

Well done with a lot of good history. Always cool to some else's point of view on Baja. Not sure people even grasp how much work goes into making a video, especially one that is 15-20 minutes long.
Goat, why don't you ever post anything besides your comment? Why even be here if you have nothing to add? Have you ever posted a picture, any kind of report or useful information?

There is one thing I would like to add. Overall the video is absolutamente o.k. Certainly a lot of work. And well done from the technical viewpoint. It has a lot of good things to see. Mainly those besides the " I have seen it all" videos. BUT: It contains too much self presentation i.m.h.o. A little bit less, especially when showing interesting spots of Baja like what motoged said, would have make it somehow perfect.

I fully agree that a LOT of work goes into recording and editing photo and video pieces. Been thru that before I gave up doing ride reports w/ pics and vids.

These days my adventuring is focussed on the ride/drive and not recording it for others to enjoy. Because, face it, such efforts are really intended have other folks say.... "Wow, aren't you cool..." or some other need for validation as much as the intent is travel info...

I really enjoy finding good travel docs.....the good ones don't have so much "Look at me" moments....

I watched all of a recent travel blog reviewed on BN recently with Goose and the couple from Arizona....good blend of visuals, local info, and narrative. I had a bit of withdrawal jonesing when they came back to the USA ... :biggrin:

motoged, I couldn't agree more on just enjoying the ride/hike or outing. I was going to vlog my PCT hike but decided I wanted to enjoy it and not be tied to the equipment or the requirements it brings. I'm just going to take pictures and share on FB.

Dirt sunrise is my favorite by far, I started from the beginning and am a little bummed that they finished the Southern part of the trip. Really like their style and kind of trip.

I have five trays of slides and a sound track from a 3 month Central America adventure ....you think anyone wants to sit through that ??? :lol:

It was a life-changing trip....meaningful really to only me.

Sorted 85 rolls of slides (pre-digital cameras), edited for the best, and spent weeks developing sound track..... showed it a few times at cultural events and local immigration centre....

Lots of Baja go-pro footage unedited....some I may never even watch again, never mind edit.

But, I like to see well-done adventure docs..... just too many "influencers" promoting themselves more than the territory.

Heck, I even paid attention to some of the missionary stuff :coolup:



I rarely take photos anymore..... just a few for myself.

for some its a hobby for some here it's an out and out obsession, for decades of traveling baja our go to was "get a picture of that"...."got it!"never owned a camera. but I sure am glad you decided to snap a few Ged, the adventures you let us tag along on over at ADVrider.......priceless!:D

That`s absolutely true. But there is one thing to consider blogging a vid here in BN. Like it happened right here, those who doing all the work to please us, do have to face harsh criticism as there is ALWAYS at least one guy who just wants to say something - even if it is BS!

It's always a risk to poke one's head outside the cave.

Critics don't always offer a critique....

motoged, have you looked at some of the companies that digitize slides and old video? It would be cool to see some of that old stuff. I have some I think 8MM home stuff from my grandparents and parents that I've never seen, I'm really tempted to send it out and have it done. I for one would bring the beer if you were putting together a show.
