Thanks for the 'piggyback ride,' Dave.......'bout the only way I'd ever get up there.  :P      That was quite a "walk," as you say. :lol:     Looks like you've worn everyone else out, but keep on makin' the videos and I'll keep watchin' and goin' along for the ride! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I found Mount McKnight and some of the other places you were listing on this quad.....

Dang it, Woods, I got out of breath just watching you!  Thanks for taking time to document these trips.

Another great video Woods.  You have got to be in the best shape of anybody over 40 in the world.  16 1/2 miles is about as far as I can ride a bike on a level paved road.   :-[

Keep em' coming and thanks for taking the time to do them.
