Is that camera a plotwatcher? Or what kind is it?

Nice little video, around here haying hasn't been any too hard number 1 nothing there, number 2 it never rains.  I even had trouble getting some tough enough to bale, first time for that  :-\.

That's great, sure hope they can spare some, my brother lives up there and usually they have a hard time getting one good cutting (was far northwest but moved last month).  Hope it's not as dry in your area as it is here, real ugly but nothing I can do but complain and so far it isn't getting me anywhere.

Thanks for the comments guys.  Here the hay crop is so so.  Not great but there is somthing there.  We only get one cut here :(  and my first cut is all down and with that rain it got quite a bit of that green dust growing on it.  It is a shame because the bales I made the day of the video it was dust free. In the grand scheme of things all is well anyway.  Thanks for watching the vid

It is a GoPro Hero2.  It is one of those cams the extreme sports guys strap on when the try to kill themselves,,,, google Jeb Corliss if you want to see what I mean.
