Algonquin Trippers


As you may or may not know, a group of us go on a camping trip every year. In fact, at this moment, both entries about the 2005 camping trip are in the Top Ten post. You can read Part I and Part II to familiarize yourself with this annual ritual.

For the last few years, I have created a DVD of the camping trip, complete with photo slideshows, background material and small videos.

This year, I have prepared a trailer for this year’s trip with the help of a very cool guy. Take a look…

  1. ok – that’s pretty darned cool. You campers, you are a pretty serious bunch 😉


  2. i loved your little trailer…;)
    a camping trip with friends is always cool

    take care



  4. Dude, why do I get no video? Oh. ‘cos its a wmv.

    No quicktime option?

  5. Still can’t believe you pulled this off. However, the bar: she’s looking a little high for next year. You’ll need Wolfgang Peterson to direct.

  6. How cool was that? How cool was that? That was SO cool that I just this moment made a vow to a) go to Algonquin Park with Dave next time he goes in spite of my not having been camping for 30 years, b) get familiar with my HP Muvee software, c) change my name to Phung.

  7. That is soooo cool. Everything should have a trailer.

  8. Unbelievable! Amazing! Awwwwesome! I also just made those same three vows…wow!

  9. Funtastic? Awesome. Can’t wait to hear about it.

  10. Colour me jealous! I wanna go on your camping trip (or at least have a trailer for any future trips I go on)!

  11. ‘The Voice’ really makes it something special. Nice job sir.

  12. Really Cool. Can I use you guys for my next Job interview?

  13. cool, I like what you do . I also like the video. Camping is such great fun! I have been camping for about 30yrs when totaled. Even Climbed a mountain and crossed a raging river hanging on to a guide wire and my three children in tow for the river crossing sides of rocks with foot holds … and then the two hour climb back up … we have traveled to all national parks camping (not always with children as of late of course)from NFL to Alquin park (sp) the gaspe is breath taking and lots of mountains to climb , but my fav. was Gross Morn park in NFL… When you climb Gross morn mountain(806meters) it is without a trail and on loss rock called a scree and there is no backing down when started as you could cause a rock slide. It is subartic weather on top and going down is one tiny lane and G-d help you if you run into a moose or caribou on that path 🙂 look out tuckamores here I come ….
    Keep up with the great work !!!


  14. kiffin, that’s really hardcore. I have problems climbing my stairs at home

  15. That. Was. SO. COOL!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. WOW.

    That man’s voice is incredible. And I want to go camping. And that’s all I have to say about that.

  17. Hi just me again I finally found the actually photos not the graphics. You can set up a business and sell they are beautiful !!!!!! 🙂


  18. Hmm. I would only be impressed if it was in 3D.

  19. That was absolutely amazing… You’ve definetly raised the bar for bloggers and campers alike….
    The voice over was totally proffessional. That dude should consider a career in radio!!!
    Have fun!!!
    P.S. I’m going to climb Mount Fuji in August.

  20. I’m going to climb Mt. Fuji (or attempt to, at least) next week! Wish me luck.

    Jorge, I don’t have words to express my admiration for your trailer. Great job! I agree with Dave that the bar might be a bit high, but I’m really looking forward to chillaxin’ on the camping trip – it will give me a chance to work all the Japan out of my system and get back to some good ol’ Canadian nature.

  21. All the barbershop farting?
    Drinking our faces off?

    Hellz yeah!

  22. Oh MY Gosh. That rocks. I couldnt get over the voice!!!

    And by the way. You ARE lego candy;)


  23. Seriously.
    The DVD this year is going to kick all kinds of ass.

  24. […] Remember this? […]

  25. […] was struck by his willingness to help. He made several trailer voiceovers for me (evidenced here and here) and charged me nothing. I sent him a photograph of an Algonquin Park (this one), but […]
