    Hi All,

    I just finished reading up on your adventure and watching Ron's great videos. Wow, wow, wow! :clap: :clap: There is something special about Stovies and these meets bring it out! Thanks for sharing the fun with us folks back east. It was almost like being there.

    So where do we hold the big "National" meet! :-k :lol:

    Cheers,

    Manny

    Many thanks for the excellent reports and pictures of your splendid weekend in the desert. Especial thanks to Ron for having the patience to mess with the vidcam throughout.

    Richard, nothing, my Sanyo Xacti video camera's output is H264 so I just download videos from my camera to my pc then upload it to youtube. What you are seeing is raw footage. But the DVD's I sent to those who attended, I compiled them using Corel VideoStudio 3 using their 30-day trial version. Since use an old pc running 1.6mhz, it takes a tad longer and somehow the voice sync is off by half a second or less owing to outdated video card and slow processor. BTW thanks for the comment on youtube :thumbup:

    Ok Ron.

    Have a look at DVD Flick, its freeware and will turn just about any video format into DVD format to view on a standard player.

    http://www.dvdflick.net/download.php

    There is an option to 'Ignore audio delay' this works, don't know how, but 99% of the time it syncs sound/motion.

    You also have the option of saving as a DVD ISO file and burning is included.

    My camera is old now and I have to download in 'real time' so I'll be looking at a new camera when I eventually get my pension lump sum through.

    Great videos of the meet.

    Nice photos Jim :thumbup:

    On thing I learned in such cold weather, bring a lighter that would light the first time. I love Gary's use of the MAPP lighter :mrgreen: fires up right away, primes the burner quickly without the flames going everywhere in the wind although its quite cumbersome to be carrying.

    I have uploaded the last of the videos and that 14 and 15 is an example of a 15 minute drive from snowy weather to instant loves desert setting. I still have not uploaded the pictures having been on overdrive multitasking and getting little sleep :(

    Ron

    Morning, Flivver,

    Thanks for the last of your photos! What a wonderful way to end a fantastic Gathering! :thumbup: :clap: :clap: It was fun trying to haul out and make the 10AM tour of Mitchell Taverns, with you, Mrs. Flivver, and Hikin' Jim. Too bad we missed it, but hey, next time, right?!! :thumbup: Sweet Bride and I are still talking about all the fun we had at the Gathering, and our old canvas fly is just about dry now, after hanging underneath our car port roof since we got home from the Gathering!! :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
