    Someone made a youtube vid of part of my work commute.

    Its a poor quality vid and I don't know if its interesting to anyone but me and maybe the vid maker.

    I'm too scared to ever go faster than 30mph on this hill. I think 32mph is the fastest I've ever gone down it. I'm use the brakes so I don't go too fast.

    Too shakey for my brain. And certainly too shakey and fuzzy to see the speeds. Not to mention I kept waiting for him to go into terminal speed wobble mode from the twitches he did have.
    Model airplanes are cool too!.....
