    Video: A trip in Natural Bridge/Red River Gorge

    I took a solo trip in June and filmed it to share. It's a little goofy at times, but I tried to share some info that some here might find interesting. I show my new Heine pot kitchen and a bit of my camp, as well as some ups and downs of the trip. It's my first video, and I think I'll get better with future videos, but I hope you all enjoy it. I need to send a big thanks to Shug for giving me the inspiration to try it--THANKS SHUG!!!

    You're welcome.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Whoooo Kentucky Commonwealth!
    I am sitting here in a hotel room on the road in South Dakota and watching your vids took me away awhile. I thankee for that and the "Thankee". Glad that you got inspired and filmed. It can be fun.
    You look just so darn happy to be out in the beauty of the piney and mountain laurel filled woods. Cool.

    Glad you all enjoyed the vids! They were pretty off-the-cuff and with some pretty hastily planned scenes and groping for words, but it got easier toward the end. I'm just glad I could share something back. I just might try this again . . .

    Shug--I'm so glad to hear you say I could brighten your trip. Like you've said, that's what makes this all worthwhile. Just watched your documentation of the group hang/hike, and it looked like a blast. Looking forward to the Ohio State Fair--my family and I are going to try to get up there to see your show!

    thanks for the video footage! I liked hiking along vicariously... got slayed by those stairs right along with you.

    I hadn't seen that mod to the heine cooker before (wired lid and handle) and I like it.

    I visited RRG with headchange4u and others a couple of years ago. Loved those rock houses and swirl patterns in the rock.

    great job
