Brilliant use of technology, BK!  I enjoyed it enormously and definitely felt like I was right there with you. Wish I could master this. Will I? Probably not. I'm too old, too crotchety, too lazy, and too focused on my own experience. But I'm darn sure glad you've mastered this. Thanks for the ride. Made my afternoon.  I was moved to tears by this. You could draw at least two conclusions from this: 1) I'm a weeper, 2) you're a genius. I'm okay with both.

BTW - some of my favorite music. :great:

If folks can't find their way to Randell's Overlook using this tutorial, they have no business trying.  ;)

Very nice to see a hike someplace other than the OML.

Cool, I liked it. Especially like the way it shows where you stopped, went one direction, reversed direction and went another as if a drone was following along.  Nice touch with Chris Rea's "Texas".

You could draw at least two conclusions from this: 1) I'm a weeper, 2) you're a genius. I'm okay with both.
I think we already knew both of these things.

I couldn't see it on the APP, so I'm downloading it to my PC to watch later.  Based on the comments, I can't wait to see it!
