A few months ago, Trolley, Aaron, and I headed over to the farm for some partying, snowboarding, and general relaxation. It was only a weekend, but it was one of the best weekends in years.
During the ride over, we stopped off at a grocery store to load up on munchables. Every time I see the video, I remember how excited I was, just from hearing my voice. A weekend away with two friends and no worries. Of course, I’m so excited that my voice cracks, and it sounds like I’m going through puberty again.
Being on the farm is like being in a world of its own. 350 acres of land, including little forests, a hunting shed, snowmobile paths, cows, and limited light pollution. Just imagine the privacy, with the nearest neighbour not even at earshot. At night it’s a debilitating darkness, and the milky way comes out enough for one to make out the distance of specific stars.
! you can take pictures of the stars. /jealous
My camera can’t, I swear I’ve tried everything :(
Actually, it’s not a very good shot, but at least the stars can be made out. My camera has a long exposure mode than can keep the shutter open for up to 15 seconds, but it doesn’t do much unless there’s very little light pollution. I think light pollution is probably the biggest problem for star shots.
I could watch this video all night, it is that fun.
It just makes you feel the connection of really close friends. Like if you watch a movie and think “They did a really good casting job, I couldn’t picture anyone else in this role”. That’s how I feel about you guys.
wah wah wah waaahhhhh
