If you can, watch this in Full Screen mode. It's pretty amazing on my 23" monitor. Clicking in the HD improves the picture quality about 300x. (Unfortunately, my connection can't keep up with the HD, though :( ) Thanks to Ernie for sending it.

funny to see the ski bum video guys shoot the Bay area. I suppose it was an elaborate "gear test" for them.

Vimeo isn't streaming - Just click on play, then pause - eventually the entire video is downloaded, and then you can play it. Their back end servers are stone age technology, but for slow connections, that's exactly what works, even with highest bitrate video. If it still won't play, then your computer is too slow to decode/scale the image.

Carby small-block in a Miata. What could possibly go wrong?



Jalopnik has a follow-up story. Don't go look at the pictures if you are squeamish.

Maybe a good caption for the video:

If at first you don't succeed, fire, fire again...

or:

If at first you don't succeed, fry, fry again...

for the petrolheads, although there's also a lot of battery power involved in these things - Audi testing at Monza for the Le Mans race

Really nice, Brian. How many road and hiking trips did you make to get all those pictures?

All in all probably about 20 trips. They are all from my random adventures from 2010-2012. I do wish I had Yosemite in there but I haven't been to the valley in awhile.

Locations include: Tons of Sierra spots (including a Mt. Whitney of course), Los Angeles, San Francisco, Big Sur, Muir Woods, Redwood National Park, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Anza Borrego, Alabama Hills, Angeles National Forest, Santa Monica Mountains, and Mono Lake.

4 Round Trips over the years starting in 1980 to 2006.

The guy is using a helmet camera I think and this makes the climbing look a lot harder than it is. Basically for the lst 2/3rds of the way you stay on the South (left) side. Put both hands over the knife edge to the North side and your feet easily walk you along the route. About 2/3rds of the way across, switch over to the North (right) side and put your hands again over the knife edge,to the South side this time, and your feet easily walk you along the route.

This knife edge has a reputation of being a very hard route but it really is not even though the camera video makes it appear that way. Some people actually just sit down and straddle the knife edge and scoot across. This takes a lot longer and is pretty hard on the seam of your pants and it is really not necessary to do it that way.

All the above and the video are for good summer weather. In winter, snow or ice, I can not give an opinion as I have only gone in clear summer conditions. It would obviously be a lot harder !!

Wow this video was almost the same time as my "knife edge" ridge walk at Clouds Rest. This makes Clouds Rest look like a cake walk. Although, I also say the video makes it look a lot worse than it is.

I'll post the goofy video again...

Remember the "World's Toughest Bridge" video? (11foot8.com)

This entertainment hails from Oz. Sorry, I couldn't find a version with English subtitles.
