My YouTube channel is edeksattic, a personal vlog mostly devoted to bicycle touring and related topics. It includes a series of videos that I shot as I performed major maintenance on my Surly Long Haul Trucker. The following are what I call the “featured videos”.
First Ten Days After Breaking My Hip On A Bicycle Tour – On September 15, 2021, I had a hard fall on my touring bicycle that broke the neck of my femur. From the time I entered the Emergency Room until I was discharged from the inpatient rehabilitation unit, I was determined to narrate my experiences as they happened.
Great Allegheny Passage Travelog – Most of the narrative was done “on the fly” and covers features of the GAP. The video is about 36 minutes long and includes riding and many details. It has been viewed over 40,000 times.
GAP and C&O Canal Towpath Travelogue – In this video, I used more studio narrative to summarize the major features of both trails, covering both in less than 20 minutes.k This video has been viewed over 20,000 times.
Camp-Tek Microburst Inflator Review – On a ride in 2015 I met a person who was using one of these and I’ve been happily using one ever since.
