EXTREME ADVENTURE #1- THE ROAD TRIP
Wednesday 8:30 PM. We made adjustments to our schedule and hopped in the car. It was pretty late to be making a road trip, but time was ticking and we needed to be in Stanley six hours away by sun-up.
Thursday 3:00 AM. We dragged into Stanley, Idaho at 3:00 AM. Rang the nightbell at the closest hotel, waking up the Hotel Manager's Husband, and happily spent the $95 to sleep three hours in a bed rather than our little squishy Civic. Randy was shocked that Frugal Freida here would agree to such a thing. But... you know...
6:00 AM. Up to catch the suns first morning rays, Randy was off to photograph Little Redfish and the Sawtooths.
The day was still young! Jane is from Eastern Idaho. We need to go there! We got the hair-brained idea to drive another 5 hours across the state.
EMHE needed the photos by 10:00 the next morning. They said they would call by the end of the day.
We figured they had decided to go another direction. No problem. We had a great time getting away together for a day. And besides that - we could give them to Jane later anyway.
EXTREME ADVENTURE #2 - On the Hunt for the Perfect Shot
Randy received a message from Erica, the show's field producer, "Please call me back as soon as you can, I have an idea!"
They asked if he could be there that night. They would put us up in a hotel for a couple of days. We were packed up and in the car within minutes.
We dropped by the studio to pick up what Randy needed and received a message from Lisa Marie (design producer) as we were heading out the door. They needed seven images printed for the house and delivered by 10:00 Monday morning. This was getting tricky! Maybe the right hand (design department) wasn't quite aware of what the left hand (video department) was doing! We dropped the images off to Ray at Pixels and crossed our fingers.
We arrived at the Hampton Inn at about 6:00 pm.
Nice Room, huh?!
Randy was given his first assignment. Scout Mountain- Early Morning- Funky, Artsy Macro Shots.One would be used for daughter #2, Ruth Ann's, headboard. She's into photography. Please deliver by 10:00 am. And while you are at it, please find a good outdoorsy nature place to do some filming.
Cherry Springs Nature Area - Mission accomplished.
Randy and Jillian
(She really is VERY kind... and PRETTY too!)
