Talking California Ride - Video

A Ride Through California In December, with my new Contour Roam.

A Ride Through California in December - YouTube

I ran in to GoinPostal and a couple other Stromers along the way.
They're not in the video, as they were parking just when I was leaving.

I can only watch videos is short bursts. I get dizzy watching the cut ins and outs.
I notice the videors head seems to be pernamently straight ahead. I'm always looking around at the scenery. I must look like an Owl pivoting around!
Great roads though. Funny how they appear to be so narrow from the vantage point of the camera.

Hey Postal! Nice one!

Yep, that's us.

Ya, the wind noise was awful. I was in a rush to get the video done, and I'm still learning iMovie, so I just opted for no sound rather than the canned music.
