I bet some visiting Texan from the panhandle dropped the seeds last time he came through, eh Rick?Wink Wink

Well, ya know, our country’s first boundary (the Republic of Texas👍🏼) extended up just east of that area, so it’s really no surprise to see our flowers still growing up there😁

It's been a while since this awesome trip, but I finally pulled together a video of one of the days. It's our day at Gemini Bridges and the Shafer Switchbacks.  A lot of the pictures have already been posted in this thread, but this kind of pulls everything together.

When I first started doing these voice overs I wasn’t sure how they would go. I wanted to give more information about the places I have visited. 
Many of the jeeping videos I watch have zero information about where they are or what’s going on. I liked the action but craved more info about the locations. At first I tried lots of text which worked ok but seemed to clutter up the video and kill the action. It also exposed my bad spelling and poor proofreading skills Ouch.
That’s when I decided to try the voice over. Most of the feedback I’ve received has been positive so I think I’ll stick with it.

See, even here I ramble on too long. Doing it in text on a video can really kill the action even if it adds info. Voice over doesn’t seem to do that and I can ramble on without hurting the shots too much.Tongue

I like the narration also. Smile

You had me scared at one point though.   The camera panned rearward,  driving on the edge of a cliff, and you are talking along, describing was is back there.   It gives the sense that driver is not watching where he going.  LOL

Keep 'em coming,  love your videos.

Tryin' to keep it runnin' and doin' the best he can
And when it's time for jeepin''
I hope you'll understand
That Stan was born a ramblin' man

or, this one:

Did you say your name was Ramblin Stan?
Ramble on cj, settle down easy
Ramble on Stan..

All I know is that Stan sure is fun to jeep with!

Finished up this last video of this great trip with Steve and Alan.
This is  our run on Poison Spider. Brain Gabriel came along with us on this ride in his awesome CJ3A.

Once again I would like to thank Steve and his family along with Alan and Tammie for inviting me on this really fun trip. 

If anyone is coming to Moab, especially in the summer, I would love to come down and show you around, or if you don't need any kind of guide, just ride around with you. I'm  only 4.5 hours away. Practically next door out here in the west.
