Default Highway 30 to Skyline Climbs

Failed Test. Will try again later. Watch this space for further development.

Anyone know where I can host a 40mb file?

Default YouSendIt.com

You can upload the file and email the link to yourself on yousendit.com

Take the link that yousendit emails to you and post it here. The link will be good for 7 days.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try it.

I used Google Earth Pro to map the climbs from Highway 30 up to Skyline - Germantown, Newberry, MacNamee, Logie Trail, and Rocky Point Road.

If we're talking video... why not YouTube or Google Video? YouTube will accept files up to 10 minutes and 100mb. I haven't see a limit on the Google site although I'm sure there is one. Their compression is kinda bad unless you have the right format. (DIVX?)

Default Maybe

You Tube sucks for the most part. The quality is low, everything gets cropped, forget it. I suppose having the DIVX encoder might help, but I'm not going to go that route for now.

So, let's try Yousendit.com. Tell me if this works, and what you think. Sorry about the glitches, it's a matter of Google Earth encoding it into Quicktime format:

OR

Not sure which will work.

If it's a go, I can try other rides, or even other areas. I did one for riding from LeeVining over Tioga Pass, through Yosemite and into Yosemite Valley, if one would be interested.

That worked great... love the idea for scouting routes this way. How did you capture the video?

Did you press the 'secure' option in YouSendIt? For some reason I had to sign in (which is okay since I have an account).

Default Lolo Pass, Tioga Pass, Newberry

Try this link for a WMV file to Lolo Pass, Roads 1825 and Road 18:

This one should get you to Tioga Pass, Yosemite:

And Newberry Crater, south of Bend. This one doesn't do the beauty of the road justice:

More later this week, as my schedule allows. Also will try to find a better format. QT looks nicer, but too big so far. WMV smaller, but poorer. Limited resources here, but will give it a go.

Google Earth Pro has this feature ($400 program. My employer owns it and I use it in my job. I think a work around can be made though with various screen capture programs.)

I didn't think so, but maybe I did? I'll double check next time.

Any other places you're interested in? It may take me until Thursday to get to it though.

That worked, no signing in this time.

Man, Lolo pass makes me tired just watching the video! Would be a heck of a thrill goasting down from there on my trike, though!

I don't have any particular rides in mind to map, but I'm sure a few others do. Nice work!
