The Sledder's Prayer:
Our flurries, that fall from heaven,
Powder fill the tains.
Thy parts did come,my work be done,
on clutch, carb, and suspension.
Give us this day blue bird sky,
And help tree huggers forgive those that trespass against them
Lead us not into avalanches,
but deliver rolling meadows.
For thine is the highmark, the tree run, the sidehill.
From November to mid June

AMEN!

OP:

just like anything "new" there are people who oppose it. reasons vary...dont know how to use it, technology isnt their thing, etc.

like Paul said...who cares! keep filming!! theres guys like myself who LOVE to watch these vids. i find it more entertaining then the 30 sled vids sittin on my shelf that i have paid $$ for. main reason...its REAL. working class peeps like me doin what they love. dont get me wrong...Burandt is the tits...but the guy rides 150 days a year...like many of the pros.

keep filming and keep posting the vids....make sure to post them up in the video section above too. this way they dont get lost.

well, not really if i just came up on someone hurt. but if i had just been at a restaurant or gas stop and some guy had been busting my nuts about it, and he's the one i found in the trail then yes.

I have, and trust me it sucks to come up on a accident scene. Knowing that your basically powerless to do anything and located in the middle of nowhere.

The problem is not old grouchy sledders, the problem is the anonimity of the internet, and its everywere! You see it on the comment columns of any news outlet.
People weigh in, with mostly mental garbage, just because they can blab without the fear of a knuckle sandwich. You even see it here, someone asks a technical questikon and they get three answers, ask an opinion question and you get 150 posts.
Helmet cams are cool, and give us all something to watch when not sledding. Who would care what some other person spends there money on anyway!


(I just proved my point, we are all postinmg an opinion about an opinion)

Got a Gopro Hero 2, two weeks ago and I love it.Don't know why people are complaining about them. Maybe they are camera shy?

Just compiled some videos from last weekend and I got some new ideas for this weekend. It will be cool to watch them when your getting ready for the new season and itching to get out.

Never hit a tree...I'm very selective where I go off the trail I look for the plush fluffy stuff. And I'm too fat to where a Tekvest even if they weren't gay.
