Bucking Bronco

Max the Bucking Bronco losing patience with the "paused dog sled team" on the trail in front of us this morning :)
"Get Going!" screams Max at the paused team in front of us and he bounces and bucks
up in the air to add some gusto to his scream.

Today's video clip is a must see. I do not usually load long clips but today's 2 minute clip is a "Max Classic". The video starts with us flying along the trail behind a dog sled tour from Good Times Adventures. But, after a couple of turns we screech to a halt as we encounter a "man down" on the trail (the musher & passenger fell off the sled).

It is a narrow trail, so we have no choice but to wait for the group to get organized and restarted. Watch how impatient Max is with this restart effort as he keeps bucking up in the air and yelling at the team to "get going!" (you probably need the volume up high to hear Max as the GoPro was in a waterproof case).

Note that Max starts this episode on the left of Zorro but ends up hurdling over him in impatience to end up on the right of Zorro before we finally get restarted. Funny Max :)

It is hard to top that hilarious video. But here is a little more fun from the day...

Catching and passing a paused dog sled team on the trail:
"Hi buds - coming through!" demonstrate sprinting Max & Zorro executing a perfect pass.

Pausing at an intersection of trails to let a team go by:
"Hey friends! We'll be right behind you!" state Max & Zorro.

What a fun day!
"Great time - glad I exhibited such patience all day!" exclaims silly Max.
"Am I the only one with 'trail composure'?" asks innocent little Zorro.
Sorry to cutoff part of Zorro, he was coming at me at this pause point and did not
fit in the whole GoPro field of view.

Running with the dog sled teams on the trails around Good Times Adventures: 9.2 miles traveled with 1000 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 23 MPH.

2015/2016 Season to Date: 90 days on the trails covering 766.0 miles with 81500 feet of elevation climbed.
