    So you just set your camera down and left it running?



    I've seen that in a lot of TV shows & documentary movies.

    Makes the trip 3 times as long, since you have to go back and pick the thing up.

    Uh, yeah, actually, that's basically the only way to get the shot when you are out there by yourself. Considering this whole valley is a series of tracks, taking 1 min to circle around and come down the other side wasn't all that big a deal really.

    Sometimes an off motorcycle camera/video shot is pretty cool, as in this case. A zoom in shot could have helped, but hey, what'a gonna do. Very impressive climb. When I see a steep uphill, I'm pretty hesitant . . . very hesitant to be sure! I have tried a grade, steep enough the TW couldn't make it and stalled . . with me on it. I walked it up from there. Thanks for sharing.

    Not sure if this is one of us. But it is pretty funny.
