    Dude! That looks almost as bad as the Hilly Billy Roubaix course!

    Wow. As always, the best way to survey the countryside, whether for pleasure or damage assessment, is via bicycle! Great drone footage – really gives a different perspective than what we would see through regular/national media outlets.

    Dang Mark I wanted to do Hilly Billy next year. At one point JOM I thought I was watching drone footage when they were pulling the rowboat/canoe or whatever it was and then I saw the wave. I then realize you were riding you bike through that deep water. I was thinking maybe you hooked one of those tiny fishing motors to the back of your bike. lol

      Larry, the rowboat footage was from the drone… I flew it just above water level. Many hours of drone flying practice 🙂

    Makes one realize how vulnerable we mere mortals really are….be it these wild displays of Nature’s wrath or a minute virus, undetectable to the human eye, we are subject to the unknown! Stay safe, people.
