In preparation for a big canoe trip I'm taking in less than two weeks (one that, despite taking place in Canada, will probably find its way onto this site), I bought a GoPro camera. I'll be away without a cellphone and my SLR is too large to carry for the weeklong trip, so I opted to go for the tiny action camera.
To get ready and learn how to use it, I brought it with me to Grand Rapids last weekend. My wife and I typically go to Lake Michigan at least once a year to swim, and while there, ended up playing a round of disc golf with my sister and a few of her friends. I decided that was the perfect opportunity to test this little device out.
If you haven't played disc golf before, it's quite the game. It's as simple as it sounds, and can be challenging at times, though not on the holes we played. You can learn a little more about the game in this story written by one of my colleagues. We played 11 holes on the 18-hole course at Cascade Township Park, opting mostly for the wide-open holes with longer distances.
I'm still looking for advice on how to best utilize this little camera, a GoPro Hero 5, for a weeklong canoe trip in the backwoods of Canada. If you have any advice, please let me know!
