    Crescent Valley Trip, Video

    Trout, Evilleotter and I went in search of Crescent Valley Friday and Saturday. It is a secret spot I used to go to all the time many years ago. Well, we liked it so much we thought perhaps the Hoosier Hang would do good here. It's not hard to find, it's on the Sycamore Branch loop from the Tower parking lot on Tower Road. At a certain place on the first leg of the Sycamore Branch loop you go North and bushwhack about a quarter mile or half mile to the valley. If you all are interested in considering it for this years or next years HH, Let me know. Here is the video:

    and some photos

    I am using iMovie, but now that I have made the trailer using the excerpts from the 10 minutes of video I took, I cannot get youtube to upload the 10 minutes. I am giving up for now, I am getting angry.

    It was a great trip! I had a blast with Mule and Trout. Good hiking, good bushwhacking, good fire and great company.
    The Crescent Valley really was a beautiful spot. Lots of trees, no undergrowth, sheltered from wind. I will definitely return to this spot. The bushwhack in was easy to find and easy to hike. Good water source. Mule found us a real gem!

    I know how you feel. I use Sony Vegas and sometimes it too can be temperamental. Look forward to watching after you get the bugs worked out

    Cecil B. DeMule! I love it!

    I think that's a good spot. I like the old spot(s) too. I'm OK with either, and I don't mind bushwhacking. There wasn't an option for this view, so I'll just sit the poll out and see what everyone else wants. Like I posted on the other thread, I only suggest that the location is set firmly at least 2 weeks before the event so no one is confused.
