River front camping Kern River

http://youtu.be/oWe1xCHR594

Lowest water level I've ever seen both at the lake and river.

F18s love blasting by in the morning just above the tree tops.

Some shade more so at the southern end. Campground 3.

Re: River front camping Kern River

Very nice, and I'm amazed at the altitude your copter was able to go.

Next I think we need to see a video of you fishing with your copter. Camera pointed straight down, with the copter dangling a line with bait beneath it. Just hope you don't land a really big fish though.

Very cool video! We passed through there mid-week on one of our adventures a couple years ago. It looked like a great place to camp but it was deserted then. I'm surprised there's water in it. The news over here makes it sound like there's not a drop of water left in California.

Jacko,

Can I make a suggestion. You should come up here in Sept. for our Chelan River Release with that chopper right. I am guessing that you could produce a video for several groups that I know would purchase something professionally done.
