Yep checkin the serial #, if its a hit I might just forgo the recall and get an adjustable installed :)
You aren't challenging me, you are challenging the producer - who told me that via email a couple of days ago when he received the email that was sent to me (she just forwarded it and left my name at the bottom in it which is pretty funny). Feel free to ask Anthill for some back up on that if you'd like. Maybe it was hyperbole, maybe it's accurate.
I was also told those horses are the ones Budweiser uses in their commercials - and that is the business the rancher is in.
Yah I figured it was more of a hearsay kind of thing. All good
Wont be wasting mine, or anyone's time at Anthill calling them on their BS
Maybe it was hyperbole, maybe it's accurate
Takin out of context I know (dont be pissed), but this I like, you couldnt have summed up most of the crap Ive been reading up here lately any better. It is entertaining, makes for good morning coffee reading. Cheers
I also know that hundreds of hours of planning and safety went into the shot and that the horses are trained to do this sort of work.
Its a really cool shot, but as Tashi said, and IMHO, this makes a big difference.
I'm gonna challenge you for back up data on this one Cam, if you have some.
…hundreds of hours of planning and safety?
Was it 200?, 600?, 800?, how many hours?
One thing I do know, thats big dollars. Really big. And a tremendous amount of work specifically dedicated to a small amount of final product.
I'm surprised a MTB film maker and sponsors would be able to justify and put a scene in with the expense of 100's of hours of scene specific safety and planning, combined with very specific location, horse and equipment rental, production costs, all for one shot. Pretty mind blowing.
This is your world and not mine obviously, with all thats considered, and the 100's of hours dedicated to planning and safety, how much would a shot like this cost?
…the horses are trained to do this sort of work?
Its pretty clear in the "making of" vid they are a ranchers horses for sure but trained? Who's horses are they? Ranchers Company website? (They'd have one if they were pimping their horses out for movie production, which is the only reason they'd need to specifically train them I think) I'm curious to check it out as it would go a long way to supporting the filmmakers assurances in the credits that the horses were unharmed.
Stawamus/Indian FSR has some loose sections. Nice cruise out there. The washout at 24km is a bit rough. Only recommended if you know what your doing and have at least a second truck if things get exciting. Made it across with my Frontier this summer but had to pull a friend through with his Tacoma. We left a third truck on the Squamish side just in case.
yeah forgot about that one, it would be awesome right now before the snow flys.. really cool campsites lunch spots on indian arm at the end of it..
its a ways though, so going with a buddy in a second truck would be a good idea, or bring your mountain bikes as life rafts, Ive ridden that road Indian Arm to squamish a couple times its a pretty easy go
Im with Zed on the saw thing, if youre gonna explore, pickup a $250 buck little stijl or husky saw to throw in the back, and a good tug strap.. also make sure your spare is good and easy to get off the truck (not rusted on) flats are common on the FSRs around here. I also carry a couple cans of tire sealer, have given them out more than once to youngens with flats on the fsrs around harrison lake
Heres a couple Day trips from van:
Harrison Lake is great for 4x4 newby's, go up the east side from Morris Valley Road (off the Hemlock Mountain road) , amazing views and great picnic and camping at 20 Mile rec site..
Go up the west side from Harrison HotSprings, head towards Sasquatch Provincial Park, keep left uphill on the the gravel (you'll see rec site signs etc) at the turn off into the park.. 11 KM in is Cascade Point its beautiful camping and swimming
Furry Creek is really cool, easy drive up.. hit the gravel road above the golf course and keep going up till you hit the old mine site and mt shear townsite.. its fun to poke around there
Sylvester Road east of Mission has tons of views, gnar, everything you want
You gotta go 15kms or so on pavement then ban its goes gravel and uphill quickly after that You can get into Davis Lake only a few kms past the start of the gravel.. its fun going down to the lake if yer a newby (probably dont try it if its not dry) and you can get into staves east shore, buzz around on hill climbs etc
Note on Sylvester if you dont like guns its probably not a destination of choice lol
Not sure what that Myofas… stuff is?
Possibly I do though, my Physio girl is really awesome, does quite a bit of manipulation (15 or 20 mins) after the needles and then I get cold laser and / or the buzzing suction cup things for 10 mins
its quite a full meal deal, appts are usually 45 or 50 mins
i actually dont mind the needles, took some time to get used to the sensations at first, and to be sure, sometimes i feel like i've just ridden 30 kms after the appt but as you said, its a hell of a short cut to mobility, one appt can accomplish what 3 or 4 massage appts can do. Like massage, it is temporary and has to be accompanied by strength and flexibility exercise like the other guys are saying.
Works for me though, and I'm pretty busted up, so i do recommend it if asked.
