Introduction: Scout 203a POV

Firstly, I wish to quickly clarify 5 things:

1) I had to check up on the bottom of the shed because we thought that one of the supporting beams was damaged. I was the only one who was able to fit into the small access hole to the dried river-bed beneath the garden
2) This required use of a torch, and a camera. So really, it was more justifiable bringing the Scout 203a, because I fitted it with both these things
3) Before the decking was built, I had made the little lego "escape pod" as a hover-tank time capsule. I wrote the little message inside (although, that should probably read "I got my Mum to write the message inside) and we planted it in the river-bed. I was genuinely surprised at the note though because I'd forgotten about it.
4) I knew the lego pod was there, so I thought I'd weave it into a "search and rescue" scenario, for entertainment purposes.
5) Hope you enjoy the video, and no, I don't know why one of the Scout203a's wheels squeaks either...

If you watch the little bit at the very end of the video, combined with the photos at the beginning, it should be fairly easy to convert it from these instructions:

This very good. I think the text was a little too fast but i liked the 'mission' because it looked very real, and also with the dramatic music. Just one thing... Whats the music called?

I actually have no idea in my music library it's just called "Really epic theme". I think I nicked it off another YouTube video lol. The eerie music in the 'cavern' is the Torvus Bog theme from Metroid Prime 2.

Wayyy too fast text though.

Lowney (author)3451382010-08-18

I disagree.

EHPIK. Were you afraid of losing it?

Lowney (author)~Aeronous~2010-08-14

Nope, it was on a string so worst case scenario it could be pulled out.
