This melding of media illustrates the challenges of off-trail travel better than anything I've ever seen.

And this format you've put together REALLY shows it....in ways that a simple trip report, even with photos, wouldn't. And the inclusion of text and photos in your format highlights the important points and deepens the experience. This is definitely a new level of trip report. Sadly, I can't imagine myself pulling this off. If I ever do, you'll know it before you see it because you'll feel the earth move under your feet when I master this technology.

The first time I watched the video I though the little arrow was a guy wearing a cape running really fast down the trail - i.e. Batman.  I now realize it is just an arrow, but I can't stop seeing it as Batman.  You should add a little dust cloud behind the arrow.

I don’t move fast enough to raise a dust cloud!

Enjoyed that Patty Spring trek.  When my children and I hiked out to Ward Springs a few years ago, I kept looking over there and thinking that would be a fun place to explore.

Thanks for Pink Floyd. Hadn't heard that in a few years  :afro:

Love these!  Really gives a new perspective on the hike, the ups and downs and how the terrain dictates the path.  Like to see an OML done like this.
