    Tell us a little about your equipment (vid/stills), in particular for the time lapses. TY.

    I brought a Canon t2i with one lens to record about 90% of the video. I used a gopro for the other shots, though it was old and the battery didn't last very long. I had about 5 batteries for the Canon.

    I finished the ride around 3am on a Saturday. After sleeping for a few hours I got up, had a big breakfast and then drove up to Molas Pass and I shot the timelapses on the t2i. I didn't have a tripod or anything so I got creative with stacking rocks to keep it steady and level.

    This is from April this year here in Washington State. We were possibly the first group to traverse the whole Colockum and Quilomene Wildlife area's by bicycle. Access to this area was made difficult when the dams went in many years ago (this is on the East side of the Columbia River Gorge in Central Washington) and eventually the old homesteads/ranches/etc. were reverted to state wildlife land. Luckily, so far anyway, bicycles are allowed out there on routes that have been closed to motor vehicles. This is Eastern Wa's dessert "outback" country and (unless you arrive by boat) some areas out there are quite remote (by area standards anyway... not remote by AK standards). I posted all 4 vid's in a "RR" thread last Spring but day 3 is my favorite so I thought I'd "file" it here. Wide variety of "packing styles" here... all worked just fine except the double wheeled trailer... I doubt he'll try that again although it was great to actually see it in action for ourselves. BTW, even though some of us worried about it in advance, the BOB trailer did quite well and in some stuff it "kicked butt".



    Here's the link's to the other day's vid's:

    It looked fine in my browser, but I forgot to add a link, which often is needed for mobile browsers. Here it is.

    Fantastic. Great visual images. I've been out on my Mukluk recently and am itching for a snow overnighter. Thanks for posting the link.

    Another great vid, Peter! Makes me wonder how long it takes to get to your campsite... with setting up all of those the camera angles and all.

    Yes, Finland it is. Riding to camp takes a while when making videos, about half an hour extra, but I don't do it everytime I go out.

    Was living in Helsinki about 12 years ago (for about 6 months), never got to go out and explore the country side due to heading to Germany on the weekends (now wife). I need to get back there and explore.

    I assume Spring is better that Summer/Fall due to mosquitos.

    My personal favorite is the time between the beginning of the spring until the mosquitoes come out in numbers. This usually takes a month or so. June and the beginning of July can have rather lots of bugs, with the peak being around Midsummer. The bugs start to decrease in numbers in the middle of July and usually don't bother you much at the end of August, though you still want the shelter to be bugproof.

    The Helsinki area has some really great places. Nuuksio is very nice, though maybe a little crowded by Finnish standards. Still, there are always places where you can be alone.
