In case you want an alternative to a GoPro. These could be cool, at $180 bucks it's not too expensive either!

I'm probly ruining his story telling fun, but ... He had some steep-ass baby-head-strewn hillside issues yesterday evening, and ran out of daylight. So pulled on his bivvy and spent the night.

This morning with actual daylight and full of oats, he squished a buncha baby-heads and bolted to Challis town.
