    Craigie Creek Crawl

    Here find a video of a TW trip up craigie creek trail near Wasilla Alaska. This is an old mining road that was built quite along time ago and has deteriorated quite a lot over the last century. Was about 25 degrees...raining down lower and About half way up it was snowing pretty good but the trail was rough enough that it didn't matter. Drove past a handful of mining relics and an old cabin. The gate over the pass to this trail was closed just a day or two after this trip. One of my favorite tw trips. Good times.

    Great video, I hope it didn't take you long to thaw out after the ride.

    Impressive.

    Breaking ice to make a motorcycle video -- I love it.

    That was awesome. I always enjoy riding in Alaska with you. The old mining relics and cabins are cool. That trail is kind of gnarly in places, with all the rocks, but you handled them very well. I appreciate the extra effort you put in to making your videos interesting and enjoyable. I'll bet you ride the trail 2 1/2 times by the time you drop the camera, turn around and go back, then turn around, ride by the camera, then go back and pick up the camera. You also have a flair for picking the interesting shots. I liked the shot of the water flowing through the culvert, the underwater shot, and the shot up through the trees. Thanks for a very enjoyable video. I've watched it twice, and will come back to it again, I'm sure.

    Nice job! Very enjoyable.

    Just don't get hurt out there all by yourself in that cold weather.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    typically filming something like this adds only about an hour or hour and a half to the ride for about 50 or 60 shots. I probably used about 40 of them in the final product. Then about another hour and a half to view all the clips, cut and edit it together and upload. Glad you all like it.

    As others have mentioned, certainly an entertaining video riding a motorcycle we can relate too. I love running across old mining stuff. I kinda like riding in the snow too, if it ain't too wet and goof up the goggles. Thanks for the video.
