    wow. Not something you think about, having a tree just drop on you. Glad you made it out.

    I noticed that slight audio cut-out shortly after the attack! This is a family friendly site after all. Now me, I would have blended in some background wind noise from seconds nearby...

    Really like the views, and the video's ending was perfect for the music. You know that the DMCA police are going to sue you for a zillion dollars for all the revenue they lost by having you cop a Who tune, but it will be worth it, right?

    It's an awesome place to hike. There's always room for more hiker's up here.

    Hopefully, we can get some trail time together soon...but only if you're not going to attract falling trees..lol
    But seriously, great vid! Glad you are doing ok...
    It's what you have to do. The ladies don't really like it when we hit the woods like this. I have my tree repellent now, we'll be safe! Thanks for watching.

    Thanks Grizz
    I actually didn't think anyone would notice the pause in audio and I for sure didn't want to leave in what was really said. I am for sure going to do the extra work to make it unnoticeable next time.
    I hope they don't notice a small time amateur filmer like me. I'm to pretty go to go prison.

    Excellent job on part 2.
    There sure is a lot of cool places to checkout along that trail.
    Thanks for sharing your adventure.

    **** bear ninjas! They always attack from behind!

    So... you have to be married to call it a "widow maker"... right???

    Great video, as always!

    Minnesota sure is flat... but that trail looks mighty fun, and some beautiful campsites!

    Kiba made an appearance again!!!! (Ahhhh puppies!!!!!!!!)

    You know it's going to be O.K. when you start laughing when something like that happens... way to stay in good spirits and enjoy it while you were out there and injured!

    You getting some massages from the GF, right?



    Happy Hangin'

    Thanks for the Flogging Molly.

    I noticed the pause, too, but I probably noticed it more because I've seen the Director's Cut without the pause.

    I'm glad you're alright. I hope you get out again soon.
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    So, if a tree falls in the forest ...

    Thanks for the vid.

    Most of my time in the woods is solo, so I will have to pay better attention for the attacking trees.
