Silver Falls… With Our Cameraman

6 11 2011

This past August, Yair and I were contacted by a researcher for Canada’s History Channel. The guy was collecting information for a potential documentary series on the RVer lifestyle and had found our blog.  He requested a Skype chat with us to pick our brains for insights about ‘life on the road’ and we obliged.

Fast forward four weeks and we receive an e-mail from the producer, asking us if we would like to be featured in a series in-development called “RV Nation” and if he could send a camera man out for a test drive.  Um, sure!

I initially had reservations as I am a bit disdainful of reality television, but the producer seems like a really credible guy who is more focused on creating an authentic documentary-style program than showcasing silly reality TV stunts.  We are one of six families that have been asked to participate and once the producers and director review the film footage later this month, they will send a full film crew to join three of us for two to three weeks of follow-up.

Marc, our camera man, joined us this past week for a couple of days of interviews, hiking, volunteering, hooping and an excursion to the beautiful Oregon state park Silver Falls.  At first, it wavery strange to have a camera following us, but we got used to it pretty quickly and the camera was only turned on for short periods of time.

Marc joined us for the first mile or so, and Yair and I continued on the 5-mile loop to seven gorgeous waterfalls.  Fun times!

We left Eugene just a couple of days ago and are making our way down the coast to California.  The Pacific Ocean is stunning and we’ll be taking scenic Highway 101 for most of the ride.  Photos to come!

How cool! I can’t wait to see you guys on TV. And now you know if you want to lose the cameraman, you just have to out-hike him.

True that. Thanks for the love and – maybe if we’re selected – you could meet up with us on the road for some RV caravanning, camera crew and all. :-)

How cool! Let us know when you get on TV. That way I can brag that I personally know some stars…:)

The pictures really look like postcards – you should have them made into that on Snapfish. Cant get over all the beauty surrounding you on a daily basis. Laughing and loving the story of your cameraman.
