I haven’t written much about the trip I took down to Costa Rica with my friends Jackie & Brie. I have a number of reasons for that, but I’ve decided to share some video.
We went for a hike at the “hanging bridges.” Basically they are narrow suspension bridges that span over gorges. At some point we started messing with my Flip MinoHD video camera (I have to review that little guy… so much to write, so little time).
Since we were on a bridge, we decided to reenact the bridge crossing scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Cause we’re cool like that.
We did it in one take, fluffed the lines a bit, I underestimated how much the bridge was shaking, and we generally made fools of ourselves… but whatever.
Curious about the last three seconds? Wondering where that incredibly authentic howl came from?
Well, I’m glad you asked.
We did a number of adventurous things while we were on vacation. One adventure was zip-lining through the canopy of the forest. In the middle of the zip-lining was an optional event called the Tarzan swing. Basically they tie you in, and drop you off a cliff. Have a look for yourself, and enjoy a laugh at my expense.
Usually when I am scared pooless I remain silent… not that time.
While I was on the swing, I had my Flip MinoHD camera attached to my helmet strap. Unfortunately the camera flipped and faced my chest, so you don’t really see anything. However it did capture the audio of my howl. So I grabbed those three seconds and dropped them in at the end of our Monty Python video.
It’s hard to tell, but the view from the far end of the swing was unbelievable.
Have a great weekend.
