Title: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on March 13, 2017, 01:27:09 AM
So, for a while, I've wanted to make highway timelapse videos, much like the ones that Freewayjim and others have made. These provide me with great entertainment and I want to provide many other roadgeeks with the same. So, here's my first road video, of I-5 in Snohomish County between Lynnwood and Marysville. Enjoy!


There's much more to come; I just need to edit them and get them on YouTube. I eventually want to post videos of me clinching every Washington state highway, as well as filming various other roadtrips. So stay tuned for much more...

That's really neat. I recall getting a few miles of I-5 in August 2011 going from the Seattle cruise terminal to the SeaTac Airport returning from an Alaskan cruise.

Thanks! The view from I-5 NB coming into downtown Seattle is quite spectacular.

Finally uploaded another video to YouTube showing I-90 between Seattle and Bellevue, filmed in both directions on April 21st, 2017. This was filmed a couple months before the express lanes permanently closed on I-90. (I didn't get to drive in them, because I was the only person in the car, and the express lanes are HOV only :( ) Anyway, enjoy!

Nice vid! Got me to thinking: I-90 routes through tunnels within a mile or two of BOTH its terminae: the Mercer Island Tunnel here, and the Ted Williams Tunnel near Logan Airport at the Boston end (thank you, Big Dig).  Wonder how many mainline Interstates can boast that!

Nice choice of music for your videos! Especially the classic Van Halen hit Jump for I-90, as they would later influence the forthcoming grunge bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

I finally have uploaded another highway video. This time, I present to you US 2 eastbound over Stevens Pass. I filmed it last fall, and I also filmed in the westbound direction, and will be posting a video of that within a week or so. Enjoy!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on November 10, 2018, 11:10:59 PM
I uploaded a video almost two weeks ago of US 2 westbound over Stevens Pass but forgot to post it here. In case you haven't seen it yet, I am posting it here:


I will have some new videos coming out within the next week!

Here's something a little different: a tour I did on board one of the ferries on Puget Sound, the Hyak. I mean...it sort of is about highways, given that the ferry routes are part of the state's highway system. Anyway, enjoy!
Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on November 14, 2018, 12:43:04 AM
Okay, here's one that's actually a highway video. This was filmed on the way to Deception Pass, which is a narrow passage with fast flowing tidal current at the north end of Whidbey Island near Seattle. Deception Pass will be shown in a future video, but this was filmed as part of that day trip. Towards the end of this video is the Skagit River Bridge, part of which collapsed in 2013 after being hit by an overheight truck. Anyway, enjoy the video!  :popcorn:

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on November 23, 2018, 12:52:42 AM
Okay, I've just uploaded another video, this time of me driving to Deception Pass. Enjoy!
Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on November 24, 2018, 02:13:15 PM
Aaaand...another one!

Today, we are driving south on Whidbey Island on WB SR 20 from Deception Pass to the SR 525 junction south of Coupeville. As always, enjoy the video!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on December 06, 2018, 11:23:59 AM
Hello, today we continue our drive down Whidbey Island on SR 525. We then cross the ferry from Clinton to Mukilteo and continue south until we reach SR 525's terminus at Swamp Creek Interchange where it meets I-5 and I-405. Enjoy the video!

Here's a freeway video--this time, on WA SR 16 westbound. This video includes the drive over Tacoma Narrows Bridge, as well as some footage of the never-ending construction on I-5 in Tacoma. Enjoy!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on December 26, 2018, 10:53:48 PM
Just uploaded another video to YouTube, this time showing the entire route of WA 304, including the ferry route from Bremerton to Seattle. Enjoy!

Post by: compdude787 on December 30, 2018, 07:03:05 PM
I have just uploaded my first of a series of videos featuring the North Cascades Highway (SR 20). This video covers the beautiful scenery from Newhalem to Diablo Lake. I've been looking forward to showing this one for quite some time, so I hope you will all enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed filming and editing it. Enjoy the video!
:popcorn:


EDIT: Forgot to post my previous video here, which was of SR 304 from Bremerton to Seattle, which includes the ferry ride between these two cities. Enjoy this one as well!
Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on January 03, 2019, 09:45:50 AM
I think this is my best video yet. It is a continuation of the last video, showing the drive from the Diablo Lake viewpoint to Washington Pass. Even though I've watched it a bunch of times, I still enjoy all the beautiful scenery, and I know you will too. Enjoy the video!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on January 07, 2019, 12:48:16 AM
Here's another video guys. This time, I'm continuing my journey on the North Cascades Highway east from Washington Pass to Winthrop. I did a bit of extra editing to the video to synchronize the speed of the video with the tempo of the music. I hope you'll enjoy how it turned out as much as I did.

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on January 19, 2019, 08:36:55 PM
I just uploaded another YouTube video. This time I drove on SR 20 over Loup Loup Pass between Twisp and Okanogan. Yes, it is yet another mountain video, (I hope nobody tires of these) but given that I'm in Eastern Washington the landscape is much different--less trees, more brown grass, and more open skies. So enjoy, and I'd love to hear what you guys think about my video!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on February 10, 2019, 10:40:35 PM
I've finally uploaded another YouTube video. This one shows the drive across Sherman Pass eastbound on State Route 20 in eastern Washington. Enjoy!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on February 17, 2019, 12:19:10 AM
And here's another YouTube video: this time I have filmed the Alaskan Way Viaduct, which has now become historical footage now that the viaduct is closed with demolition now beginning on it. I also filmed the Alaskan Way surface street to give you all an idea of what the waterfront looks like right now with a big ugly viaduct. Finally, there is some footage from me walking inside the new tunnel on February 2nd as part of the grand opening celebration. Enjoy!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on February 19, 2019, 09:26:09 PM
I just drove through the new tunnel on Sunday morning, and here's the video I got. Enjoy!

Yesterday I uploaded another video, this time of I-90 westbound over Snoqualmie Pass. This video highlights the reconstruction work that WSDOT has been doing on that part of I-90. Enjoy!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on May 08, 2019, 02:43:27 AM
Just uploaded another video yesterday. This features US 2 again, except in the early spring instead of fall. The scenery looks a bit different because there is still lots of snow on the mountains. Enjoy!

I totally forgot to post my video that I uploaded almost a month ago showing a tour through the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth. Here it is, the first video produced on my new computer:

And here's a video I just uploaded, showing the drive over Snoqualmie Pass on I-90 Eastbound:

Hope you enjoyed both of my videos! I will have many, many more after I'm done with the roadtrip that I announced in my most recent video.
Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on September 07, 2019, 09:28:33 PM
Here's a couple more videos I've uploaded recently to my channel. They are both videos of I-5 through Seattle, the first being I-5 southbound through Seattle, and the second being the I-5 express lanes.



Hope you enjoyed these videos! I'll be starting to work on uploading my videos from my roadtrip after these ones (I just wanted to put up a bit more content from Seattle, first).

Here's a preview video of the roadtrip I went on this summer. I will soon be working on the actual full videos from the roadtrip, of which there will be many. Enjoy the video!

Post by: compdude787 on October 29, 2019, 10:36:36 PM
Hi, so I completely forgot to post a video I uploaded 3 weeks ago that was the first video I did on my roadtrip. It's of the drive on I-5 southbound thru Portland, as well as the clinching of I-405 in downtown Portland. Enjoy!


And here's a video I just uploaded yesterday showing the drive on US 101 down the central Oregon coast from Lincoln City to Heceta Head just north of Florence. This is the longest video I've made but I encourage you to watch it all because some of the best scenery is towards the end of the video. Once again, enjoy and thanks for watching!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on November 30, 2019, 01:15:50 AM
Here's my two most recent videos from the Oregon Coast. The first one was uploaded about a week ago and shows the drive from Heceta Head to Coos Bay.

And here's one I just uploaded a few hours ago, showing the drive along the most scenic part of the Oregon Coast, from Cape Blanco to Brookings. This was my favorite part of the Oregon Coast:

And now, I've finally made it into California on my roadtrip! In this video, I'm heading south on US 101 from Crescent City to Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Along the way, we pass through the redwoods and a bit of coastline. Hope you enjoy this video!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on December 14, 2019, 04:37:12 PM
Here's the second video of the Redwoods that I uploaded a few days ago, showing the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway through the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on December 19, 2019, 02:56:13 AM
And now...my third and final video of the redwoods! I'm driving south on the Avenue of the Giants (CA 254) thru Humboldt Redwoods State Park. I also have some footage at the end of this video of the Chandelier Drive-Thru Tree. Enjoy!


EDIT: I re-uploaded the video because in the original video, the first two songs got blocked for copyright reasons.

Post by: compdude787 on February 16, 2020, 12:56:25 AM
Another YouTube video uploaded; this time we're getting closer to San Francisco, driving on CA 1 in Marin County. Unfortunately there's no music (no thanks to YouTube's annoyingly inconsistent copyright policies, where a test video with just the music I want to use in my video uploads with no problems, but putting the music in the actual video causes the video to get blocked by YouTube), but the scenery is still worth seeing. Regardless, I hope you enjoy my video!

Title: Re: Compdude's Highway videos
Post by: compdude787 on May 07, 2020, 11:25:37 PM
I've totally been forgetting to update this. I've posted several videos in the San Francisco area over the past couple of months. Here's the latest one:
