Good Video from yesterday

I have a few good videos from the riding we did yesterday. What is the best way to host them on the net? Isn't there a way to do it with my yahoo briefcase?

This was at Jack Brooks Park in Hitchcock. If you've never been, you can probably ride for 3-4 hours without hitting the same trail twice. There are about 4 or 5 five bridges (one floating one) and 4 teeter-totters. There aren't many jumps, but there are plenty of hills and roots to hurt yourself on.

This video is on the main trail called The Autobahn. It runs for probably hafl a mile or so and crosses most of the trails. Its covered with tons of sharp pebbles that allow you to really go fast. I was just holding the camera in one hand and dodging the tree branches as best as I could. I almost eat it towards the end on some roots just after the foot bridge.

In all my years of living and riding in the socalled "greater Houston area" I have never rode at Jack Brooks. I pass by it everytime I head to my beach shack in Sargent.... I've heard the its a good ride, but how are those mosquitos?

Don't worry about the mosquitoes, its the spiders that will carry you away. I think they are called banana spiders (black and yellow). They are pretty scary lookin, I don't know if they bite or not. I probably rode through at least 10 webs yesterday in 1 hour.
