Earlier this spring, we were able to spend the morning with the crew from OpenRoadTV, as they came through Lake County, California to film a segment on Clear Lake.
Advanced Elements graciously supplied two AdvancedFrame Expeditions for the photo shoot on Rodman Slough. AirKayaks set the kayaks up and supplied MTI Adventurewear PFDs, and Cannon Escape and Wave breakdown paddles. We had planned on using WindPaddle sails for more footage, but a fluke gale storm came through, causing huge whitecaps.
Brad Barnwell of the Lake County Land Trust led OpenRoadTV host Doug McConnell on a birdwatching tour, where they managed to see egrets, grebes, pelicans, herons – even a bald eagle sitting in a tree filled with turkey vultures.
The segment – Episode 11 – premiered on September 28. See the footage at OpenRoad TV.
