The Adirondack Adventure of #EatPlayLoveNY in Video

Vines, yes, I found myself in front of a few on my Adirondack adventure. It was part of our #EatPlayLoveNY travel through New York. Well, let’s be honest, I took time tasting the result of its harvest: the grapes. It is one of the things to do in the Adirondacks.

On our first full day on the adventure we visited the Adirondack Coast and its vineyards. Our adventure only allowed for stops at three of the seven wineries but my “vine” addiction didn’t stop (or even start) there. Actually I “vine-ed” my entire journey. I “vine-ed” my travel to the Adirondacks.

Plenty of grapes on the vines this time of year (August) in the Adirondacks

For those who don’t know vine is a 6-second video app used via your smartphone (and not really a verb), but during my time and travel through the Adirondacks I created over 30 vine videoss. I had over 30 6-second videos (over 3 minutes) of footage. Each is made in the effort to tell a quick story, (a 6-second video, like a 6-word novel) and ideally designed and crafted to stand along. Hmmm…But, what if I strung them together.

Wonder no more, this is what happens.

Of course, this is an experiment, probably like creating vineyards where the winter temperatures may reach or rather may plummet to -35 degrees in winter. It’s a learning process, but it seems to be working for them with their wine and I think it’s working here to tell the story, the Adirondack Adventure.

So, share your thoughts below… I am curious if you believe if this is a great way to showcase a region.

Stay adventurous, Craig

This post is from my blogger trip through the Adirondacks as part of the #EatPlayLoveNY as a host of ROOST ADK.  But as with all my authored posts, the opinions are my own.

Also, follow me on vine @Stayadventurous, I am currently “shooting” my adventure at ATMEX 2015 in Chiapas.

    That’s awesome. I like how you caught the guy saying “Hey, we’re Canadian.” I’d like to know what that conversation was about. You really captured the whole feel of what I imagine that area is.
