Alafia, Boyette, and Bent Creek N.C. videos
« on: October 27, 2007, 10:14:20 PM »
Hello everyone,

Sal here. Swamp member lurker. I have a weird life so getting out for scheduled rides is hard for me, but I appreciate the club none the less.  SOOOO, here is my contribution to the family. Videos.

The lowdown: Alafia and Boyette. I shot this in the same day back to back. Not perfect but I was out there trying to perfect the setup for my upcoming N.C. trip. (No, not the club one, but more on that later.) Quality is not that good but that is because YOUTUBE compresses them way too much and I just donít know the secret as to how to get them better. I do have non compressed originals if anyone wants to take a stab at them.  Anyway, here are the videos.

Alafia: North Creek:
Sorry, but I have to do some trimming to get it under 10 minutes. I am at 11:30 so I either trim or get faster.

Alafia: Bridges
 
Boyette: South Abyss:
 
Boyette: Pandemonium:
 
Boyette: Wreck:
Camera hangs on branch.
 

Asheville, NC. I was there visiting my sis who lives there. She, my parents, and I get together once a year. It so happens that I run into the club as they are riding there. Great coincidence. I have some video of the group coming down the trail, but Iíll give that to Wes to put names with faces.

Bent Creek: Greenís Lick:
Great downhill. Better have youíre A game for this one. Look at the 6:50 mark where I almost endoíed.
 
Bent Creek: Ingles Fields Gap:
 
Bent Creek: Wolf Branch:
   


Hope you enjoyed them.

Hmm,

Am I the only one that doesn't see it? I tried fixing it. Forum Moderator, can you help me out on this one?

You have to unfocus your eyes, like those pictures they used to sell in the mall. :)

Those pics were such a pain in the ass!!  Somebody bought me one and I put it up in my bedroom a long time ago.  Glad they fell out of popularity! ;D
It's not just fun, it's an addiction!

Well guys and gals,

I was out of town all last week playing soldier (no internet in the field) when all your replies came in, so I am just getting to reply to the thread. I don't know why the videos didn't work since I have inserted them in other pages with no problems. So as Mr. SandPine sugested, here are the URLs. Hopefully these will work. If anyone is interested on the high res version, let me know and I can bring them to the next ride. Perhaps, I may turn them in to Wes so he can start a historical record or something.

Let me know your opinions.

Later,

Sal

Nope, I think it was Upper Loch Ness before the climb out.

I get the different ones mixed up, but I agree.
