Anyway, that's just a lot of bitching. I'm still getting out to ride every chance I get and since I don't care if I ride in daylight or darkness, being stuck at the office form 6 am to 6 pm is okay now and then (as long as it doesn't become the norm! I'm neither ambitious enough nor stupid enough to put those kind of hours in regularly. Me likes me free time.)
Another (and I think cooler) reason I've been quiet on this page is that I've actually been working on something to post. I just picked up one of these:
- Logistics matter when you are lugging two cameras and associated equipment with you on a solo singlespeed ride. Think about it before you do it!
- Little cuts of footage add up -- I've got about an hour and a half of footage and had no idea until I started uploading it all to my laptop.
- I am way more picky about the editing process than I thought I'd be. I totally suck at it right now, but this is like its own hobby. I've cut and recut a single video about nine times now. I'm still working on it now and I've spent most of the last three nights between 9 and midnight (after I get home form my ride, of course!) putting together rough cuts and trying out background music. It's fun, but I've quickly realized that I have a lot to learn and the good videos that look so seamless on YouTube actually take a lot of time to put together!
So that's it for now - hopefully, I'll finish my first video and post it soon. Until then, get out and ride!
(PS - I think it was Josh (??) who I bumped into out on the trail Sunday. It was great meeting you! Give me a shout when you want to ride the Spaghetti Bowl side of Lincoln!)
