    Talking VIDEO: Gorge Rat Oct 2010 Infestation Part 4

    The conclusion of the trip videos of the Infestation ...

    Part 4 covers the final day Sunday and a bit of Monday morning where Hickery, Mtncmpr, JerryW, Finn and I get a little time on the western rim.

    We hear a story from Running Feather that created one of the trip sayings that kept going around ...
    We see the magic of Thing1's fire building skills ....
    And we witness a tragic accident involving Hickery and an open flame!

    NOTE: No Gorge Rats were injured in the making of this video (other than their pride maybe)

    Also, if you are allergic to foolish antics and silly behavor ... you might wanna skip Part 4

    It was great putting these videos together and reliving the trip through the experience. Great time with great folks.

    While this will be the last Official Gorge Rat Gathering planned and executed on HF's ... we will be doing this again in the future. Stay tuned to Ken's Linville Gorge site (official home of the Gorge Rats) for updates on upcoming get togethers!

    Again thanks to all that came and made this a fun week. Good folks are a treat to spend time with in the outdoors!

    That is a great campsite! Luckily Hickery's fireball didn't set the whole forest ablaze!

    Thanks for the virtual(and real) memories, Hawk-eye! Great bunch of videos.

    We did have fun ... and yeah hope to see you there some day soon.

    Moving it just makes more sense. If you notice the high level of traffic on these get togethers and the related enthusiasm ... I guess it was getting disruptive to the site here ... so doing it on Ken's site keeps the enthusiasm and crazy antics going without disrupting others.

    Just made better sense to a good portion of us ... that's pretty much it in a nutshell! One of those win win situations!

    Nice set of videos. I watched all 4 in one sitting and I think that music soundtrack is now permanently embedded in my brain.

    As usual, great work with the filming/editing.

    Thanks for posting them!

    Thanks ... glad you enjoyed them. Lots of fun reliving it in video clips!
    Ha ... yeah got that in my head too ... but dang if it ain't catchy stuff!

    Really sorry it didn't work out for you to be there this trip .. missed Slowhike too ... but we understood things come up.

    Thanks for the comments on the editing ... but dang it gets me to see all the glitches I did for trying to use new software ... late at night! Guess I'll have to keep doing it till I get it right ... or my wife kills me!

    Thumbs up Big Thanks!!!!

    I have to take this opportunity to think everyone that helped me on some of the foolishness ... the sweet Thing1, and of course the infamous Hooch and Hickery. Thanks for indulging me in my foolishness! You be good folks!

    Even the folks that didn't get roped into the camera stuff ... thanks for putting up to me pointing a camera in your direction way too often!
