On Wednesday at about 10 o’clock local time I’m going to drive the snake in Mountain City Tennessee. I will attempt to post a link to a YouTube live streaming the ride.

I would appreciate the sarge keeping his eyes open to make the link work appropriately because this might be somewhat difficult to do while on the road.

I think this will be the first time anybody on SLK world live streamed their ride.

Once I stream the ride, I will upload the recording which might take a couple of hours at high def. But it will be there.

I think you can do both at once. I'm not sure how, I just know I've watched "live streams" that have been recorded.

Am here in Tennessee, having breakfast. In just over 3 hours will start the run. Cellular coverage is spotty, so there will be dropouts, but had a test run last night and it was ...... “interesting”. Stay tuned to this thread for updates.

And be sure to give a running commentary (ie radio on low :wink: )

AND BTW, what is local time for you?? Your location is "Boondocks" . To me, that means well, a 3 hour time spread :grin:

We have no idea what time that will be.

I am in Tennessee, so Tennessee time. See above post.
Of course <give my head a shake>

Maybe as a test, try going out to your car , turn the camera on (even in the garage) and post a link here.

Maybe we can "be prepared" for the event to see if it works?? Really looking forward to this. Hope it works!

I did run a test last night going to dinner. The drop out were spectacularly pixelating. However, if you stay tuned to the live stream, when I go back into a cell coverage area, the stream will resume. So for those of you that will be watching us in approximately 35 minutes, if you tune in and see a blank screen or if the stream drops out - be patient we will return.

The link is: https://youtu.be/2yGyxkX3aYU

We will be heading to Shady Valley Country Store for the first leg. That should be about 30 min ride. We will then decide the rest of the route. Any suggestions will be appreciated and reviewed prior to making a final determination.

IT'S WORKING !!! :grin:

Mostly. Pixelation is not hd quality. A lot of buffering as well (on DSL here) but still a great attempt.

Maybe if you try again, "downgrade" the recording level "quality" wise. Might help with the buffering .

Thanks for tryin' !

Currently fueling, determining the final route probably going to go to Bristol. I will post a link for the next leg in approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Inquiring minds stay tuned!
