    Default ABC's GMA Visit

    I bet it'll be pretty exciting to have the ABC crew up there this weekend, hectic too.

    Staff, please try to take pictures...you know...the behind the scenes type of shots.

    Oh, and in the press release it was mentioned they want to learn about the OBS staff..... if that's the case, you have GOT to show them the "Thriller" video! Maybe they will air it?!

    Monday looks appreciably cold and moderately breezy...the mountain should put on an impressive, but manageable show!

    It looks to be very cold over the weekend, maybe they will be breaking out of the clouds Monday morning, that would be great.

    Hopefully they'll shoot in the wind over the weekend in case it does down for the live show.

    I would love it if they shot in HD. All the morning shows are HD but their "on location" shots are older equipment, so it's (ewww) lowdef!

    Whatever the case, I've got my hidef capture box set to record for monday morning

    The picture with the Comments this morning tells it all. They brought a lot of stuff!

    What is all that stuff? Looks like they are setting up a link down to the valley.

    I can't believe you are lucky enough to get to the summit - and for Thanksgiving too! I am hoping to get to N Conway on Weds - and will wave at you.

    You are correct with the second statement. They are not only shooting segments for GMA, they are setting up a live link with the valley for Mondays live segments. They are using a combination of the polycom link as well as transmitters parked at the base of the auto road.

    As for weather, they shot various extreme weather shots yesterday and today I was told because as of now, Monday is looking to be a "nice" possibly blue bird day, which is good and bad. Good because it will show our views. Bad because it fails to show the weather we are known for. But now we will just have to play the waiting game as to what happens.

    Hopefully you will get a combination of weather for their enjoyment.
