Finally managed to piece together some footage of our trip to the Lake district.

My laptop is suffering from overheating problems and is running real slow just now, which doesn't help when you have 60 Gb to sort. :surprise:

I think I'll have 4 wee vids in the end, but as it's taking me 24 hours to upload one to youtube, here is part 1. Hope you all enjoy it.


I'll start uploading part 2 just now, should be ready for this time tomorrow. :D

Looking forward to #2 .

That section covers very familiar territory.

We used to stay in Lorton and spent many an hour at Whinlatter and Crummock.

Wonder how many horses that last sheep had under the hood?

Only thing on the road to out run an SLK that day!

Bloomin' shame Star Trek transporters haven't come to be yet.

I'm sure some of you folk would have joined our Lakes tour.

I know a few of us have eyed your Oktoberfest.

Put the two together and it's Dr Pepper time.....

What's the wurst that could happen.

Darn it!

My umlaut has been taken!:surprise:

Great video Davie, and I love the addition of the subtitled commentary... already looking forward to number 2! :tu:

Btw, I said "and cyclists" just before you displayed it, and I knew the answer to the question before we saw it! :D

Great video Davie thanks. That sheep really did have a death wish didn't it Dave @DPA. Some of the cyclists were equally suicidal I think! You caught a good example there he got very close to me coming downhill round a blind corner on the wrong side of the road! The V8s sounding good, no surprise there! I have a similar amount of footage to sort though and I've done most of day 2 now so will share it soon. :grin::tu:

Great video again Davie. I like the bit where you say - "Listen for Phil again."
Sounded good, looking forward to the footage when I'm in front of you :D

From memory Davie has posted up 4 parts of the Lake District Video which are all well worth watching.
Google Daviethescaff Mabel on youtube and you can see many more.

Davie always does great vids with the added bonus that he adds place names.

If you see a run that you fancy, it makes it easy to trace.

Thanks for the kind comments Myk.

As you say I do have a few more videos. They are in "Mabel's outings" or "Fun time in Mabel" on my channel.
I'd recommend a big screen and plenty of volume when viewing them. :D
Not all have commentary and some have music dubbed over, Some are meant as records of a particular run showing the scenery off, and others just for the fun of the drive.
Some of my early attempts make me smile, but I'm always trying to improve my techniques, and I've just noticed that I now have over 5000 views. :smile:

excellent views

Just wanted to add our thanks to Dave for uploading the Videos, have just watched them after being so awake because we`ve just got home from a Level 42 concert at the Liverpool Phil.
Great concert our ears are ringing...
A little bit like those V 8`s.......R)
