I’ve managed to throw together a video made from footage of a fun filled day on the the Nam Lang River. After editing, I have so much respect for the Whitehead family, who put out a badass video at hockey season’s end every year…from much more footage. Sheesh… & Kelly finally gets her computer back.
Zach, Alex and I jumped on a short kayaking tour offered by the guesthouse we’re staying at. It’s likely a bit long for most viewers, but then again our family will have fun watching it in full length again someday! The float runs through a cave full of bats, it’s size difficult to describe. Maybe about the size of the Kingdome? The run through the cave is near the beginning of the clip, shots of the kids and a bunch of my very novice paddling skills follow. Enjoy!
And thanks again Pop for the GoPro.
So, when you told me you were putting together a video about paddling through some caves with the boys I thought flat, still calm water. About the time you hollered s–t and you weren’t laughing, I’m holding my breath thinking maybe a grandma shouldn’t watch this one. I can be real brave sitting at home in my chair. What an adventure for you and your sons together. I’m with you & Sawyer, Kelly. I would have passed on that one! Thanks for the ride this morning.
That was fun to watch. Wheen you said that you were glad to be up in the northern part of the country (in an earllier post) I took another look at my globe and realized how close southern Tailand iis to the Equator.
Even where you are, you are still a good distance south of Florida. I guess that the water was pretty warm.
Did you see any critters?
We’ve gone swimming in the river almost every day. It gets chilly in the evenings, but warms up to about 80 or so after the fog lifts, sometime around 9:30. The weather has been the same every day. It rains at night for a little while (always way after we crash out), the mist lays in sometime early in the morning, then it burns off & is blue sky till bed time. No critters other than cows, pigs, chickens & dogs around here. The tigers were killed off years ago because livestock and people kept disappearing. Apparently there are monkeys in the hills, a few deer & wild pigs. Haven’t seen any yet though!
TOO COOL! Great job on the video 🙂 We have had a blast reading and watching your adventures. Miss you guys. XXXOOO.
