I should have made a more comprehensive list of what to bring on my journey to Yellowstone.
It was a six in the morning on Tuesday when I began my trip, and although I had loaded up the van the day before, I had to pack some last minute things.
I was 3 miles from home when I realized I had forgotten my winter jacket. I turned around for that.
I was 100 miles from home when I found that I was missing the “shoe” (the piece that connects to the camera to allow it to mount) for my better tripod. Grrr!! This was going to effect the quality of my videos.
I was setting up my bedding for my first night’s sleep when I realized I had forgotten to bring a pillow.
Now, here in this first episode of the Tour, I set out on the journey. Most of this video takes place in the rather boring and very windy Eastern half of Washington State. I had never been on this road before, and despite some gruelingly barren terrain in the middle of the state, seeing the Columbia River, the Palouse and Snake River valley were quite interesting.
The videos will get more interesting from here, although I do introduce a brand new special effect courtesy of Google Maps.
