    I'm glad you liked it! :thumbsup:

    I'm not a big watcher of videos, but that is something pretty unique. I don't know how someone with a connection to the mountains could watch it and not feel something. I was thoroughly moved by the beauty and simplicity of the production and message.

    Yes, the old man gets it!

    :) Full disclosure, so did I.

    Part of it is, when I hear someone waxing like Henry did, especially an older person, it makes me feel a little less adrift in a world of people who, mostly, can never understand why we do the things we do.

    Oh man, that was so, so good. If wealth could be determined by the depth and permanence of a person's smile then Henry may be the richest man in the world. "Gets it" is absolutely it. And what a testament to the healing power of mountains, especially those covered in snow, and the cycle of it all. People that are truly and deeply connected to the mountains, and who have allowed that to be the driving force in their lives, generally strike me as some of the most content people you could ever meet. Thanks for that very uplifting share.

    I ride like I ski, except I am mostly trapped by the limits of the single trac. On snow I am limited by the length of my ski's, it is not a fair fight. Although th e trails did get a little wider tonight. So limits of the single trac are more like guide lines
    happy trails
