Default Short clip of a sweet log ride I found.

From this side of it it doesn't look too big, but the chick who recorded it snapped a pic from the lower side & it looks much larger.

https://vimeo.com/59635045

The drop on my right side is only about 15-20 feet, but the drop on my left side was almost twice as big.

Wasn't sure what was going to happen, the snow had a layer of ice crust on top of it & it came to a point on top of the log.

Kinda thought I was going to slide off the side, but it was surprisingly easier than I thought it was going to be

What I wasn't expecting, was the shattered splinter spikes coming right for my belly.
There were about 5 of them, roughly 3 feet in length.
Had to grab on to them with both hands cause I didn't have any room to stop/turn.
My left mitt now has quarter size whole through it.

Luckily I spotted them or i might have been left hanging there like a shish kabob, with my intestines spilling out everywhere

You can see one huge one sticking straight up from the tree.
Sharp, pointy & extremely long


Hopefully, I'll be going back 2morra & I can take some more pics/vids

I found the pic chicky took of the low side of the log. It looks a bit weird, I don't know if she had some sort of fish-eye thing going on or what?
