    Gravelly Range Video.

    Scott Stevenson (Dingweeds) did all the helmet cam work I am posting on here. He did that and I did all the hand held stuff and combined the two together for these video's.

    Scott did a really good job.

    I'm digging the new Goggle Cam videos :D (and the Dawg/Ding's hand-held/helmet cam too) -- what is the technical set-up:deal? At 480 it is clear & smooth viewed full screen.

    Although I didn't even bring my helmet cam on this ride---------me and Dingweeds both use the same camera.

    It's the POV.1
    I forget about all the technical stuff at the moment.
    I never really liked wide angle cameras------they distort the image so bad---it's just doesn't look right.

    Our favorite things about this camera is the completely remote start and stop button---no wires.
    We put this button on our handlebars within easy reach of your left hand----but you can put it anywhere.
    And the adjustable volume mic that we put in the helmet which allows for the perfect sound----with in helmet narration.

    Dr. Rock can tell you about his google cam.

    on and on, keeping an eye open for a good campsite,

    [​IMG]

    up on that ridge,

    [​IMG]

    the late afternoon light became simply magical.

    [​IMG]

    We hustled along, trying to get to a good campsite before the sun completely set. Blew right past this photo op, didn't even slow down.

    [​IMG]

    We were at Monument Hill at 9564ft. We'd passed Black Butte, 10280ft.

    [​IMG]

    Nice views up here, but too exposed to camp.

    [​IMG]

    A better shot of Black Butte,

    [​IMG]

    The video doesn't capture the light as well as still photos.

    That Tony was a little disappointed that we weren't lingering as we barreled across the Gravelly range,

    [​IMG]

    but it was a double-edged sword: to enjoy the light at this time of day we were pushing it as to how late we'd get to a campsite before dark. So we had to keep up the pace.

    [​IMG]

    <iframe src="http://api.smugmug.com/services/embed/2115820354_5RsNsL6?width=640&height=360&albumId=25608721&albumKey=vNZTHg" frameborder="0" height="360" scrolling="no" width="640"></iframe>

    See the two riders ahead of me?

    [​IMG]

    I wouldn't have traded that light for anything.

    daylight to spare, we pulled into Clover Meadows.

    [​IMG]

    Threw down our tents, and started cooking some grub. There was a campfire ban :cry. But we did our best to make due.

    Bob's bike had been sputtering a bit and losing power,

    [​IMG]

    Not sure what the final diagnosis was?

    The pictures make me really sorry I missed the Gravelly Range. Beautiful and maybe even big bike friendly!

    Dr. Rock anticipated us not being able to build a campfire at all in Montana---and parts of Wyoming.
    This was a serious thing----and we never did build one where we weren't suppose to.

    So------this is just off the charts.
    I give you---------Dr.Rocks "Campfire Substitute".................you can feel the heat.
    We enjoyed this every night. The light isn't very good in this video---but it was getting dark.

    A wee dram of "Peat Monster" would have completed the picture as it is akin to "drinking" a campfire.:1drink
    Great Pix...Brilliant virtual campfire.

    I was wanting to continue contributing to this ride report but have been gettin' itchy to ride.
    I will head out in the morning if not today. So-------you all carry on without me.
    Where am I going- ?????--------I don't know. But it's nice out--the leaves are turning and I've got to see every one of them.

    And I'll leave you with this pic of us breaking camp at Clover Meadows.
