Nice work Lepmeister! Only thing that would improve it would be opening each bit of commentary with the words "Captains Log"

One more thing.
Special thanks to Breeza for the Queens chicken, and for his troubles i shared one of my 6 c's of bushcrafting with him....
What can I say the trade was worth it since you paddled with all that ice in your boat. Thanks for one of your 6 c's. it went down a treat. And I think the picture of me and Brenton on the rapids is an amazing shot. Cheers again to everyone for a great weekend!

Top stuff Lepmeister!, some of that footage i didn't even notice you taking :p... You make a good Video that's for sure, just like that Brownie XD. We'll have to get out on the water more often this season :).
Regards Tony

Looks like you all had a fabulous trip. Great photos & video. The campsite was excellent. How come you pressed on so far, were the other campsites not as nice? I ordered my SOT inflatable from the US yesterday so I should be able to come on any future water-based meet.

Hi Blooz, actually this was the first campsite other than beehive that had room for everyone, and was vacant. I was not paying much attention to time but would estimate we paddled fairly leisurely for 3 1/2 hours. So not a huge mission. we left the dam at about 9:15 and arrived at camp for lunch.

sorry for bad quality!
i'd like to thank everyone i met at the meet for making my weekend as awesome as it was!
Thanks Corin for going through the trouble of picking me up, gearing me up, hosting me at home and all the rest of great things u did for me!
Thanks Lepmeister for being a good captain, and for driving me home! i guess we'll catch up some more...
Thanks Blake for the patches and stuff!
Thanks Saxon Pathfinder for that tinder ;)
i really had such a great time that all my questions just slipped my mind... i hope i'll get another opportunity to ask them by the campfire!
if anyone decides to visit Croatia you are most welcome to visit what our nature has to offer!

Thanks for the vids guys. Made me feel like I didn't miss it altogether.

I'd love to know what fish Corin missed out on in Lepmeisters video.

It looked like a beauty...

Hmmm i think we need to find a good music editor to edit all our talking from Lepmeister's beautiful song. Either that Or We'll just have to film him some other time :)

Haha thanks mate, was just some improv fishing tunes for Corin. Not sure if they work with or against his fishing efforts, all i know is that my fishing skill has been non exsistant of late. I need to head off to my flatty whisperer haunts to get my mojo back.:_l:
