SOTA Folks, This is my ‘last’ video.
Goats and I have decided to take a break from video production for a while. This may be hard to believe but I spend anywhere from 30-60hrs per video on the editing alone. This doesn’t include the time for planning, shooting and recording audio etc. A kin to building a complex QRP rig. Lots of focused hours on details towards a single goal. I’m not complaining just stating facts. Anyone who’s done a rich media presentation knows the drill well and what a time sink visual media is!
I usually do the editing in a couple marathon days or more …cause it’s such addictive and fun process and for me it’s hard to pull up and stop! Despite my wife’s complaints that I’m literally out of touch for days!
However this last video took me almost more than 2-weeks because my heart wasn’t into to it. The learning cure on the editing software has been steep and challenging …and fun. I guess I’m now looking for the next challenge?
So I think it’s time after 80 some videos to go chop wood, do some XC skiing or ice fishing? Anyway we’ll be back but after a long break. Donno when but need some time to get the fire back!
HOWEVER! SOTA is tops on my list! We’ll continue to hike summits and do SOTA!
Cheers, Steve …wGØAT/R&P
