Lots of Climbing & Something Else

In between design sessions on the Laramie house, Howard went for a long, hard bike ride up to Horsetooth Reservoir, over three dams, climbing 6%, 10%, and 16% grades. Then he went about 20 miles further. He videotaped his climbing and made it into a cool music video for your bemusement. About 2/3rds of the way through, during a 55 mph descent, something a bit freakish happened and he caught it on video...

I'm not saying you did that on purpose. But.....

After flying down that hill one-handed at 51 mph while trying to videotape it about a month ago, this time I decided to hold tight to the handlebars with three fingers while also holding the camera between thumb and index finger. The bumps jarred the camera loose and I decided to just let it flop. It stayed there dangling the next minute or so until I slowed to the 30s and could rescue it. True 'nuff.

Something about 50+ mph one handed makes me think the camera isn't the only thing Howard isn't holding on to tight enough.

Maybe that's why Howard Laughed.

Love your videos! Keep 'em coming.

Howard, yer makin' me real nervous with them 55-mph descents and simultaneous filming. Don't be makin' a long red skidmark out of yerself if somethin' freaky happens and it's you and not the camera that goes flyin'. Got yer health insurance paid up ?
