Thay were shooting from a really long distance at any rate-it appeared to be a couple of hundred yards at least. (Telephoto lenses on cameras "shorten' the depth of field so things look closer together )Originally Posted by misterteetoo;4126082;
So the source of the noise was at a distance where it wouldn't be as loud, and wouldn't be close enough to indicate danger. Even at closer range, the animal tends to just walk off in a hurry, or run a short distance and stop, if it's not hit.
I'm surprised that so many people hate camping, or view it as something to be 'tolerated for the kids". I love it and did camp a few nights on my second AK trip. I do require an air mattress these days though! Then again, for me, after ten minutes or so, it's all the facial and massage I can stand, the hair stylist is something to tolerate, and I would never pay over $50 for a purse (and that's only a theory, as I've never gone over 30 for one). Nor do I care for all inclusive resorts, etc. and am not interested in Disney World either. (I'm not 100% hick, I do enjoy museums, music of all kinds, and fairs and festivals) It takes all kinds to make a world!!
I didn't see the Kate Goss-whatever camping show, but it sounds to me as if it's a shame they didn't just send the kids and leave her a$$ in Anchorage, though from the sounds of it even Anchorage might be too rustic for her. But that wouldn't be enough drama for reality TV!
