Anonymous: was your programming the video unit very difficult and when can we expect to get a sample of your incredible endeaver ?
Programming the camera rig was quite challenging. When I get home I plan to make a video that describes the application and process to fill in anyone that is interested.
I have had many requests to see some of the footage. It will likely take me a few weeks to get a sample online. I still don’t have my pipeline for producing the footage setup and that is going to take some programming and effort. I have literally terabytes of footage to sort through. In many ways my journey has just begun. I will definitely post a sample as soon as I can. Thanks for following.
Anonymous: are you flying back? What are you doing when you get to Maine? So cool to see so much interest!
It looks like I will be meeting up with the local Portland, Maine scooter club who will ride in with me. I hope to film my final scene on the beach on Wednesday morning. I had a sunrise in mind but the weather is looking like it is going to dump some rain on me so it will just have to be one of those endings. It has been exciting to see how all of these natural events have conspired to shape the story that I am filming. This isn’t a documentary but I have had such little control over the weather, scooter, and daylight that the real world has shaped my story dramatically.
I am flying back from Boston. It is difficult to describe my level of excitement for laying back in a padded airplane chair, ordering multiple beverages, and falling fast asleep. Most people find airplanes miserable but after the intensity of this cross country ride the thought alone is complete luxury.
ezrider1je: Will you be riding pucho back across the country? How is the bike holding up? Have you been filming people's reactions to the sight of you coming down the road?
Pucho is doing pretty good considering… :) Every morning he starts up no problemo and sounds pretty good on the road. I have been diligent about maintenance on the road and we have had a couple of issues but we are still moving forward.
I have inadvertently filmed many peoples reactions both driving around and walking. I am excited to watch it all back and see what was actually captured.
