    Almost Lost It on GMR Today!

    Gina and I on GMR with Herb & Alyce. Gina looked even better this time on the climb.

    My Go Pro took a tumble at 30 mph. Stupid tabs on the connector link snapped. Good thing we were on a straight section with no cars. It ended up in the lane right where the tires would have run it over. Still working fine, few scratches on the case but he recorder untouched. I posted footage of the tumble in slo mo at the end of the video so we could see through the eyes of the recorder. As you cans see, Gina almost ran it over.

    Of course a tasty cheap meal after the ride.

    I've had those tabs break a few times. I'm thinking of having some made out of aluminum instead of the plastic ones that are available.

    I'm glad your GoPro is ok. Could have been much worse.

    Where did you guys stop for the cheap, tasty meal?

    Yeah it sure was! Last two weeks about the same up there. I mentioned CL to Gina today while we were up there. She's a little worried about that one since it's a little harder than GMR.

    The way we do it is harder, we climb GMR to East Fork then down to Hwy 39 and up to Crystal lake.

    Oh wow! I did that once with Hillbasher. I think we had 7000 ft of gain. Nice ride but I was tired.

    I did the search and wow, $20-$30 bucks for a little link? Some don't have the flexibility to hit the correct angles needed.

    I've been contemplating the K edge, but still a bit steep at $60 'ish. But at least that is worth it considering the others are just one inch pieces of alum.

    I'll have to think about this.

    Talk about a tumble. I just received my Contour Roam the same day they shuttered their office and locked out all the employees.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    We're supposed to do GMR again on Sunday (Gina has plans on Saturday). Bring Linda out, can't say Gina will keep up with her on the climbs but will be cool for Linda to get up there again.
