Saturday Trail Ride (6/1...if you're bored)

Wouldn't you know it, turned 50 and then I forget my helmet, first time in 16 years. Had to ride with a cap on.

Pictures: My hat, a friend at the coast Marcello, and ride partner Jose.

And a video if you're bored, have nothing to do and feel like wasting 8 minutes of your life.

Thanks! You know how hard it is to get a picture of your won hat when it's on your head? Pretty tough, much harder than taking pics of riders behind me on the trail.

Can somebody please confirm the video is working? Another dude told me he has tried 2 different sources and the video won't play as of 7 am this morning. But the dude seems to have a long history of "having problems" with simple things.

So I'd like to know if it's the video or just more typical behavior on his part.

Thanks! I'm figuring it isn't even hot yet, only 86 average the day of the video. When it gets to be 100, I'm thinking I'll be taking plenty more hat shots.

Of course this year I plan to make at least a couple of videos dedicated to hats but those will only be available on my blog.

Actually, that is why I started my blog. I posted a video here a couple years back and got threatened with a ban. Funny, my videos got 100-200 views in a month or so. This video got 300 in 30 minutes but I was notified that I "offended" people. The video got 2300 views vs the usual 200 of my regular videos. I sure "offended" a lot of people.

I had a couple but deleted them some time back, time for new ones when the heat comes.

I do post extra pictures in my blog at times that I don't post here so that I don't "offend" too many people.

Nice pics and video as always. It seems like your camera has a knack for finding all the pretty ladies. LOL!!
