Ooooh, that video looks crazy. It's all bouncy and the handle bars are all over the place. The videos of Crane Mountain show you guys going a lot slower though, that makes it look smoother. Not too sure how far I would get there, and definitely wouldn't try it alone!
Those ants are pretty cool. They are sometimes called Cow Killer ants. They are actually wasps, and supposedly their sting is so painful, it would kill a cow. They are non aggressive, and their larvae feed ground dwelling bee or wasp larvae (read: YELLOWJACKETS) so I like them.
I know you don't want to drag it out. Where is the darn "sarcasm" typeface on this thing? I really need it. Whatever you do.... NO HALF ASS!
Take your time.
