Project Noah!

Some folks at work were surprised to hear that we all went camping this weekend.

They are more city types.  Their idea of a vacation is to go down to the big smoke for a week and check out all that culture stuff.

I can get behind that.  I'm more of a taking a balanced view to things kind of guy however; I like to mix up the city culture stuff with get out into the woods and beach stuff.

When asked what activities I did with the kids, I mentioned the typical go for a walk, play frisbee and badminton, swim, cook, make a fire, roast marshmallows, play cards kind of stuff.  But I also showed them two aps the girls really like.

One is called Starwalk.  The ap shows you the position of constellations and planets in relation to your geographical position.  Great at night and you want to show them stars kind of stuff.

For the day there is Project Noah.  The idea is similar to scouting on your iPhone.  You are given missions to take pictures of different plants, bugs, birds, etc.  Once you've completed a mission you earn different badges and can go on to the next.

The girls really liked that one since they got to take pictures of different stuff.  The bugs kind of stuff were their favorite.

Now that June bought an iPhone, we also had fun taking videos from two angles and including music real time in the video.  Now I've got to work at splicing them together.
