Salmon Falls Road descent video

This is the same road I climbed in the "Salmon Falls Sufferfest" video that I posted in this thread on Superbowl Sunday. This time I decided to let you guys see how fun this descent is Of course, for me, the climbing was just as fun as the descending Especially since I've gained a bit of strength since then. Proof? Here ya go

It's odd how much the landscape looks like Southern Ohio. By the way I like your choice of music...I couldn't help but listen to music as I watched

Now your gonna get everybody all confused and they'll think I put music on my video

I'm loving this Kodak Playsport! Wind noise is almost nonexistent compared to my Casio point-and-shoot. They really did make this camera for sports use

You know, earlier I was thinking "I wonder how many people are going to think this video is about a wrong-way cyclist?"

Funny but for a raw video, I'd rather hear the wind. It adds to the experience.
