Last Video for a While

Here's a video from "Two Dogs".

Paul says that he's got the shakiness solved on the camera and I've got the compressed video quality issues almost solved. Look for some really cool stuff to come.

By Request

This was omitted in one of the videos below, but a few of the guys really wanted to see it . . . let the jeering continue. (Update: now with decent quality video.)

One More

Here's an update to this post from earlier. Now using better quality video. The video uploader directly through blogger stinks, Vimeo is really slick.

Video Sampler

There are several stories to be told, but the short version is this . . .

Paul was trying out his new Hero cam. Count on more video to come. The video quality is a mess in this clip. I've got it sorted out, but I'm over my weekly Vimeo allotment . . . will reload it later in the week.

Trail Work

Dear Riders,

Right now the trails are in great shape, but soon there will be grass to mow, trees to trim (there are actually plenty now that need it), and new trails to build. Potters has some great stuff, but there are also a host of trails that erode quickly and have no real thought to the design. When much of the trail building is done by a walking steak (cows), we really can't expect too much thoughtful design.

The unique situation we have at the pasture makes new trail construction incredibly easy. There are no boards to ask approval, no bureaucracy to woo, just you and a shovel. If designing the next Hornitos is not your style, grab a saw and walk down your favorite trail and clean it up. It's time to "do work, son".
