    Video:Yellow Buck Mtn And Beyond-Part 3

    "Thar she blows"...I took that from"Moby ****" (Good Reading). It finally uploaded. Once again, I had a great time on this trip and enjoyed making the video. If you can't laugh at yourself and enjoy the lighter sides of life then you're struggling. I hope this one is not disappointing, and you enjoy it. I'm old enough to realize that all the hard times, and we have all had plenty, shouldn't out weigh the good ones!!!!!!! Thanks for taking time to watch

    I’d like to see a red grenade, must be more dangerous, being red and all. Two’s a crowd, when hiking. I would have gotten the heck out of there too, if there were tourists at that waterfall – next time will do.

    You sure know how to kick back at camp. The waterfall looked good to me. Yes, the worst part of most walks is when you get to the end of it. You did some walking, 20 miles is heaps! Thanks for the super enjoyable trip report, Firebird, great stuff!

    Looks like a great trip all around. Have to take your snake bite medicine any day out in the woods, just in case.

    Thanks Hawk-eye, I appreciate that coming from a video master such as yourself. I just noticed something....I know they're trying to keep this site clean but they bleeped out half the book title, Melville wouldn't like that. Take care!

    Red does usually mean danger, especially in nature. Kicking back and enjoying the end of the day is what it's all about. Question for you...I've seen this mentioned but can't remember it, what do you use to animate your track on the relief map at the start of a lot of your videos?(hopefully not a hidden secret). Thanks muchly for watching Bruciehi5!!

    Like I said, you can't be too careful. In reality, probably the worst thing you could do for snake bite It was a great trip and I appreciate you watching!

    Ha! Probably using a word filter ... We use one on LinvilleGorge.net. But in this case it comes across kinda silly for sure. Kind of a problem if your name is Richard and someone calls you by your nickname! Some how "Moby Richard" sounds a bit off!

    I left a couple of comments on YouTube, but have to tell you here as well; I really enjoyed the video! I just completed a 3 day solo trip into the Marvine Lakes in the Flattops Wilderness Area in Northwestern Colorado. I too, try and avoid "company", except for the natural beasties and birdies, of course. (Is a fishie included as a beastie?)

    Snake bite medicine is also highly regarded as a snake bite preventative, when applied judiciously in the proper amounts!

    Thanks again for a very enjoyable series!!

    I hope you had as good a time on your trip as I did. Company...OK.....Crowds....Negative. +1 on the snakebite. Fishies are good! Thanks a lot for watching.

    Boy Howdy!! That was fun. I made mention of you to my son last night and he asked were you as funny as Shug. I said yes, but different. Sir you have way all your own and you're in a class by yourself. The boy didn't get to see the videos last night but he will tonight.

    Thanks for bringing us along.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?
