    Pisgah!

    Pisgah downhill, that is. My Six Pack with the CCDB totally rocked. You hardly ever see it in the videos though because I'm doing the filming. I'm the only one crazy enough to wear the camera on my head.

    This was a last minute decision thing.

    The area is around 1.5 hrs closer to me in another part of Pisgah, the part that our @ssbag 'mountain biking' president wants to sell. There's apparently some serious access issues there, and the locals do *not* want people to know about the trails.

    PM me.

    What kind of camera set up did you use for the videos? The quality and content was top notch.

    At the very end of the runway (go past the hangar and trailhead) there is a nice view.

    Yep, that's the one I was talking about. I was breathing too hard from the climb up the airstrip trail to take a steady shot of that.

    It's a Sony HDR-HC1 High Def camera with a 0.5x wide angle lens. Not a very compact camera but the resolution is incredible (1080 lines, interlaced). Makes my old Sony look like crap - I won't even use it anymore, and that was a good camera too.
