23 Feb, 2009

Ok, so second posting.... promise I wont keep counting posts in the future.. but here we go..

Since work has been busy (strange; with the slowdown of most projects up here...) I decided that it was time to take a couple of days off! So I've had 5 days to play and enjoy! It's been great to hang out at home with the dogs, get out on great hikes and rides.

I'm also exited that over the weekend I was able to put this little movie together. The BB and my small camera did pretty good, but by far Oscar quality! It is a clip of Fort McMurray riding in the winter, probably best suited for those who already know some of the trails in town (they can appreciate what they see a bit more..) and definitely suited best for those who consider them self single track lovers! (warning! there are not a lot of people in every shot, but lots of single track:)...... and sadly, with the limited resource and knowledge of any audio or video software, I was unable and after 3 days, unwilling to search for suited tunes. (and to those who jipped me for $3.89 for unlimited 3 days music downloads, but after I paid, I can only get to naked people pages!!! I want my money back!!).

The movie plays best on HQ! (one link is facebook, one is YouTube)

First of the year...

So here I am, once again, trying to create a blog page. Creating the page is not the problem I guess, but keeping it up to date might not be as easy! I will do my best. This is my first entry and it will be a short welcome to my page! It is winter in Fort McMurray so not much going on. Have some great training and race trips to look forward to and trying to get some base fitness back! The dogs and I had a great hike yesterday and snow cleared (once again) some of the single track we've maintained through the winter. Today should be a great ride!!

happy riding!
