My first attempt at Vids

Snow ride on Sunday and took a couple of videos. Or rather Ross did.

Why wasn't he working the camera when I wasn't making mistakes and looking the fool

https://www.youtube.com/user/TheStapfam#p/a/u/2/16MMUgGebyQ And as you can see- I need more practice in snow riding. Main problem is that I could not see any definition on the snow. It was all white and the same tone.

I think I would enjoy x-country skiing more in that kind of environment... looks like a beautiful area though. Thanks!

Cool. Only one problem - the videos aren't long enough. We need an encore performance.

Sounds like Ross is working harder than you, what a breather!

I give it to you Stapfam, riding in that is hardcore. I agree with Louis, let the camera roll longer.

Even though since I still work and have to deal with it, I hate snow but it sure does look pretty.

Stapfam,
It looked like a good day to stay inside and have tea and pie!

I agree with Louis that the video needs to be longer

It looks like fun but I'll wait until the roads are clear before I venture out on the bike.

Only short vids but this was my first attempt at uploading without assistance from the IT dept. (Ross)

There are some longer ones and a good one of me going sideways at about 15mph on Robin Post Lane. It may be long but most of it was not of me- it was ground- Sky- Trees- Ground and then snow as Ross hit the same bit of Ice as I had. These are hand held at present but I will try and get a mount fixed on the bike somehow.

But just to further the Adrenalyn and expectation for the rest of you- Next road ride and I will a video of me choosing the PIE at Fuscardi's

And without the snow- This is halfway up the hill in the summer.

good vids, but that's not a good place to ride. reminds me of the dune roads on cape cod that I liked to frequent with my 4Runners year round, but less in deep snow, (even less now that I drive a Ford Escape). I once wound up sinking down to the top of my hood. I was so glad to be able to back out.

May I be the first to suggest a set of tire chains.

Or if your cheap, clothesline chains. LOL

Polarized glasses or ski goggles work GREAT for highlighting.

Gary, who would rather ride in snow than ice.
