Hey Kevin, I feel your pain!

Those nasty bugs love to eat me!

Do you drive a truck? Thats abit of money to go through and not find anything... These gas prices are really annoying!

We spent probably $15 or so on our trips for this challenge (we took two to the same place). It was only 7 miles from my house!!!

Were you at-least able find a cash well you were out driving?

I hope you get something Kevin, I love your films!

Best wishes everyone!
~Gabriel

Yeah we're at $3.29 right now for Unleaded Plus.

Hitting the road early to see if I can scrounge up something.

Then I have to get all my gear cleaned and packed as I'm headed out to Yellowstone for several weeks. Man, the wild stuff I could have shot there! :)

guys,

yes the gas is getting out of hand.

Filled up today, 1.26 per litre!! That is 4.75 per gallon!!!!

My dodge 4x4 half ton does not get driven much these days. The volkswagen disel was a good investment!!! my tacoma 4x4 is better but not a whole lot.

I quit keeping track of gas expenses, just to depressing!!!

I drove two hours just to film some horned owls, that was about 40.00 for 8 seconds of video. I do not want to count anymore!! I hate money!!!

Wow you guys spend alot of money on this challenge.. I guess I was raised on the cheaper side though.

Its $3.39 a gallon for the cheap stuff here. Not fun. My Ford Bronco gets about 9 miles to the gallon!

I agree, money is depressing!!

Good-luck on your trip to Yellowstone, and have fun!

Well, I just have to contribute to the petrol matter :)
Norway is an oil producing nation, still we have to pay about 1.98 pr. litre for unleaded gas. But I don't mind really, it's time to think environment.
But I remember in the year of 1973, when the world had an "oil crisis".
In the weekends only public transport were aloud in Norway.
Even our late King Olav did use the public transport, like on this picture, on his way cross country skiing :) He is the one to the right, paying his ticket on the streetcar.

I don't know about tales of woe but this film has now left me unable to walk !!

After forgeting the ef adapter the other day yesterday I went back out again to get the shots I'd missed. My feet were still sore from the previous days hike (10 miles of rocks and sand).

After completing it yesterday I now have the worst blister I've ever had.....it is SO painfull ! Hey ho what you do for your art huh :) Luckilly editing doesnt require quite so much effort....just a hobble to the kitchen for a cup of tea :)

Well, I'm back. Filled up several P2 cards so we'll see if I have enoough to put something together or not.

I'm going to try and do some editing and see where I'm at. May head out towards evening to fill in any gaps if I have to.

The sad thing is that in a few weeks things around here will change and there will be all kinds of things to film.

We're right at the crossroads where everything looks like weeds and it's thick as a jungle and the bugs are beyond horrible.

I swear I lost another quart of blood this morning!!

Yeah, but if you try and film it, all you get is a green glob with no definition.

Now, that is pretty much "the wild"!
Why didn't I come up with that idea, haha.

I finally finished and uploaded my video.
Absolutely not the best I have made, but at least it is something.
Managed to get something useful on the 3rd attempt.

I'm looking forward to see all the entries.
