Repost of Kansas City to Boulder webcam video

I've been asked to repost the Kansas City to Boulder web cam video that I made last year to YouTube.  While driving the FJ Cruiser from Kansas City to Boulder, I had a web cam running that was looking out the windshield.  Every minute a photo was captured, saved, and at the same time posted to my blog in real-time via an EVDO wireless Internet connection.  When I returned home, I took all of those photos and using Windows Movie Maker, I turned it into about a two minute move.

If you look closely, you can see a Landstar Truck (Hi Marshall), the Largest Prairie Dog in the World Place, the Colorado Border and a rest area just outside of Denver.  Also note that there are plenty of trees between Boulder and Kansas City.  As I said before, the drive was a lot of fun and I especially enjoyed getting off the interstate a few times and exploring the farm towns.  The GPS(s) made that easy.  It was also interesting to listen to the farm report on the AM Radio when I didn't have an Internet connection and couldn't listen to Internet Radio.

Here you go . . .

(Hmm, if you don't see the YouTube video above, then there must still be a problem.  Apparently I posted this just as YouTube took a digger.  I can't access this video or the YouTube site now, though everything else is working fine.  It could be a problem on my side I guess, but if not . . . Wait - YouTube is now working, just not my video.  Here's a link to the Soapbox posting, which still seems to be working fine.  While debugging this, I did enjoy the Zebroshow's reporting of the Boston Terror Scare today.)

P.S. The music is by Most Tuesdays
