The Ohio and Kentucky hometown forums are doing a shoot this weekend at the fabled Knob Creek Range. A lot of familiar faces will be there at this one, and get this - we even talked 70satvert into driving up from Mississippi. He'll be bringing his famous viking hat, and plenty of Knob Creek bourbon.





For the live broadcast, it'll be going all weekend - EVDO signal and mobile A/C power permitting. You're going to see AR's, AK's, 50's, Beltfeds, and more full auto than you can shake a stick at. And as a special treat, we've got 150lbs of Tannerite to keep us all giggling like little schoolgirls.
Here's the scoop, as far as the live video goes. Starting around 10:00am Friday morning, I'll have the camera mounted in my Mustang. I'll be driving down to Pudwak's shop in Columbus (he needs some computer help). I'll try and make it entertaining, while I'm there (bear with me). He gets off work at 6:00pm. From there, we'll be heading over to his house and loading the trailer up with the arsenal and supplies. I'll move the camera over to his Cherokee, and we'll make the drive to Kentucky. I expect that we'll get to the camp site at Knob Creek Range somewhere around 1:00am Saturday morning. When we get there, there will be lots of fun around the campfire, and Lord knows what else. When day break comes, the shooting will commence. Saturday night - more shennenigans around the campfire.
My hope is to keep the camera going all weekend, broadcasting live video to everyone. This is entirely dependent on the availability of power, and sufficient signal for my wireless EVDO card. We'll try to keep it entertaining, but there's not going to be somebody manning the camera 24x7 (we all want to have fun, too), so don't expect a Discovery Channel style documentary, okay?





Think of it like this - you're going to see a "Weekend in the life of Subnet". Enjoy. I've got a chat room on the site, to keep this thread from getting *too* out of hand. It's moderated, so don't be a shit head.



Enjoy, dudes.
I expect to have the official  broadcast kicked off this morning (Friday) by around 10:00am EDT. It might be a little later, so just play it by ear. In the meantime, I've got some tunes playing at the moment. Bookmark it, check in and out throughout the weekend, and enjoy the fun.
Here's the link: http://www.rambling-geek.com
Techincal info, since it always seems to come up:
The mobile broadband internet connection is provided by an EVDO card (Sprint) in my laptop. The audio and video is encoded using Flash Media Encoder, and the feed is sent to a Win2k3 server on a FAST internet connection (north of 50 megabit), running IIS and Adobe Flash Media Streaming Server. I can support hundreds of viewers with nary a problem. The reliability of the broadcast hinges entirely on the EVDO signal I happen to have, at any given moment. I need enough upload bandwidth on my end (mobile) to support 80kbps video, and 22kbps audio. This is normally not a problem as I'm driving around Ohio, but just like your cell phone, there are areas where it's not the greatest. You'll see it drop in and out every now and then while I'm driving.
I have NO idea how good of a signal I will have at Knob Creek, since I've never tried this there. I have done these while driving all around Ohio and Kentucky, and I know for sure I'll have enough bandwidth to support that part of it. The actual signal available at the range is the wildcard. We'll play it by ear.
Enjoy the broadcast, dudes.

I thought about it, but I don't think I have the hard drive space to save all of it. We'll see. It'd be fun to use a video editor later, and condense it down to the good stuff.

Subnet,

KCR is kinda in a zone. It's right on the edge of Verizon and Bluegrass Cellular signal split. The subgub/Cowboy range is a black hole for my VZ phone.  I don't know how Sprint is but do know they have a few towers on Ft. Knox so you have a better than ok chance of having signal.

For power, I think there are outlets on the line.

Subnet,

I have an AT&T air card so it sounds like we will have the various vendors represented. The broadcast must go on! It is a PCMCIA card, if you need USB, let me know and I will snag one.

We are going to have to advertise in more states for the fall shoot, that is obvious from the comments in this thread!

So there is an arfcom MG shoot at knob creek tomorrow....

I happen to have an M16 a few clean uppers, and several thousands rounds of ammo that all all GTG.
Should I take too much ADD medication and hit the road?

I just hopped into the chat room to see what's going on. Subnet is still asleep, probably nursing an epic hangover. I think Gonzo is already drunk.


This is gonna be soooooo awesome.
