Got a call late in the week in early March that there was still snow up north and there was a snowmobile waiting for me. Was busy all weekend but took Monday off and hit the trails for the last great day of sledding. Had a blast. About 24" base that day. There was snow in Curran all winter unlike most of the rest of Michigan.

sleds are so much fun - especially when it is a friend's sled you can borrow any time.. here's the video I made from that day (if you are at work or around kids or around someone offended by cuss words then I would recommend turning down the speakers or mute but if you are in the safe room or have headphones crank it up - best viewed with loud speakers):

Nice mud...I think I'm going to be trying out snowmobiling for the first time this winter on the girlfriends sleds...she's got a cabin somewhere near alba or something.

And mud what do you use to edit your go pro videos

I am just using windows movie maker.. heard the new one for windows 7 was way better than the old one - not so much.. took forever to do that video.. and the quality sucks because vimeo limits you to 500mb and the original higher quality version was like 525mb.. so unless i sign up for an account and pay $60 a year that is the best I can get or make super short videos with higher quality..

I think the industry standard for quality is apple's standard movie maker. Marko from TWFix does that for a living.
