Here's some dual sport riding at the 3 Step Hideaway's Desert Rendezvous.
I never get tired of Utah.
Two thumbs up!
Ahhhhhhhhhh the Utah desert..
I feel totally neglected of a great time by not attending. Not getting any smarter a my old age.
"Ditto". Great video Chris. Thanks for putting it together. It was a fun weekend.
Thanks guys, I just switched to editing with a Mac, I'm still learning it.
The 3 Step is a great alternative to Moab, laid back, peaceful and there's some nce DS riding right from camp. I'll be back next year.
I started watching the video and am really enjoying it. Will get back to it later. Looks like a fantastic ride and a great video.
Was it hard to carry the drone on the longer rides?
We were in the area at the same time. I thought we might run into you, but we may have been further south when you were there.
What trails did you end up riding? I didn't recognize much really unique in the video.
The area is called Island Mesa where the drone video is shot, it's east of the 3 step up against the Dolores River. Some of the other video is out on Bridger Jack Mesa heading to Bobby's Hole. One of the bikes had a mechanical so we never finished that loop through bobby's hole and elephant hill. Since I can't fly it in a National Park I left it home that day. The drone itself is fairly large, but it folds up. I have to carry it in a Kriega R25 backpack and I can't wear a pressure suit with that backpack so I have to ride a little more carefully so I don't crash. The weight isn't bad and not really an issue but the size is a little bulky, overall it's not a problem to bring it along. Another company contacted me about using their drone for these videos so I'll be trying a different one out, it's smaller, doesn't go as fast but it's got allot of AI and supposedly can follow me through the trees. We'll see.
Great video, RF. Love the excellent use of the drone.
Great job on the video @RideFreak! Seriously enjoyed the mix of helmet and aerial footage, and great nod to the Scorps with that sound track. Last song was perfect...lol.
I wish DJI would incorporate something akin to what you have with the Staaker, active track is good, but it can be a serious pia getting it to actually follow you - not so fun when you're sweating in the sun. How did you deal with the elevation changes in where you were riding - just put it up high enough so it wouldn't run into anything? The scenery is spectacular, Utah is on my bucket list and I really want to stay at 3 Step.
That's effin' cool man, so good to get noticed for the work you're doing. I'm interesting in hearing about it once you're able to give us the scoop.
Thanks for putting it together, best 20 minutes I spent today
Thanks for starting the new thread. The video is fantastic, and really shows off the great variety of trails around the 3 Step Hideaway area. I have taken many helmet cam videos of southern Utah over the years, but the high def ariel views add so much to the quality of your video. Everyone who hasn't ridden these areas will be putting them on their must ride list. Thanks again for a job well done.
Nice job Chris! Fun weekend. We need to do it more often.
Good job! I had to miss this year but those routes look great and I want to cover them next year.
Awesome! Looks like you guys had a blast.
Just finished our Moab Trip. Stayed in the Spanish Valley Winery. Great place. Can handle larger groups. Here is a link to the Vacasa website. They have two homes on the property you can rent. Very reasonable. We know the owner and plan on going there every year.
Great video. Drone footage sure makes it more enjoyable to watch than just helmet camera footage. I am getting pretty bored with helmet footage. Thanks for putting so much work into it - and sharing your lessons learned. I also enjoyed your SkiDio R1 video. That drone really does well avoiding the trees. But your ride pace was too slow for normal adventure riding. I assume that was partially so you wouldn't loose or damage the drone. Or is that as fast as it will go?
You never will. I discovered Utah in 1972 and I've been a junkie ever since. I drove a giant X across the US and Canada last summer, including Alaska. When I got back someone asked "Now that you've seen so much, where is your favorite place?" They'd hardly finished the question - "Southern Utah."
What bike are you riding? - I notice you keep the RPM down and it sounds like it has more than enough grunt down low.
Keeping another bike in the frame adds a lot to your video.
that's a lot of work and came out great. best vid of moab riding.
thanks for putting it together
Thanks Guys, it's a 500exc.
Great video! Thanks for sharing!
