    Overnight Party

    I think that the video was posted just as an observation, like many other videos here. I don't believe that it was meant to criticize anyone.

    Change of Plans

    Perhaps a good decision, and a possible crisis averted.

    Weird Trike

    Yep, that's what I figured out after looking at it for a while. I was thinking converted trike but then I suddenly saw the wheelchair. I saw a YouTube video about this kind of conversion so some people are doing it.

    Machete Man

    The last place I saw MM was in the grassy area that can be seen a bit to the right of center in front and beyond the car across the street in the video. I watched for a while but never saw him come out of that area. I was curious about where the guy went so yesterday I had a look. It's a small...

    Weird Trike

    Some people use them for an upper body workout, but they are expensive. Maybe since his wife is disabled they somehow ended up with two trikes and he rides one sometimes. Heck, I have a trike, a long wheelbase recumbent, two short wheelbase recumbents and an upright mountain bike. Each bike...

    Idiot Pass

    The thing is, that even though he zoomed ahead after passing us there were cars up ahead that he couldn't pass. By the time he got to his exit a few miles away I was right behind him. So he took quite a risk just to get to his exit 10 seconds sooner. I think this is an example of emotional...

    Rowdy Raccoons

    Mine came back last night. At around 4 AM my dog woke me up all excited because he heard and/or smelled the coons and wanted me to let him out, but there's no way I'm going to let my dog get tangled up with a bunch of coons. I think there's two different families that are fighting over...

    Bouncer

    Yep, there's plenty of natural food around here for them to eat. Rodents, rabbits, opossum, raccoons, an occasional stray cat, apples, pares, roadkill deer and I've even seen them eating blackberries off the bush. They don't have to scrounge for food in the same way urban coyotes do. In my...

    What looks like a road going to the right in the street cam is not a road. It's a paved walking trail. The road that goes to the left is a short dead end street. There's no public roads that go out to the water in that area. In fact, it's private land and people aren't allowed on the beach in...

    Nope, it's salt water. It's part of the ocean.

    Bouncer

    I was having some cam trouble at the time so I didn't get to see the whole thing, but based on what I saw in another cam I think a deer passed by and the coyote either heard it or smelled it. I think it was after the deer but couldn't find it.

    I checked the street cam for that time and is was a raccoon. I had not noticed it before.

    EUCs

    To make it go forward you lean forward, to brake or go backward you lean backward. The riders should feel perfectly balanced when going a constant speed, but they will appear to be bent over because the lean is compensating for the wind.

    Weird Trike

    There's a few disabled people that have shown up on hand cranked trikes, and there's a guy that I know is not disabled that occasionally rides one. I've seen him and his disabled wife come by with her on a trike and him on an upright bike, and I have seen them both on hand cranked trikes...

    Weird Trike

    It took me a while to figure this one out. I've seen a variety of trikes that have been converted with hand cranks, and I automatically thought that's how this trike came about. But I saw some things the didn't make sense. What are those bars attached to the steering head that point down and to...

    Creeper Tweaker

    Unfortunately the big city problems of meth, homelessness and mental illness have found their way into rural America and it's getting worse. There's some violent crime in our area, but mostly what we see are property crimes committed by people looking for meth money.

    Bike Crash

    Nice screen capture! If the front wheel was turned perpendicular to the direction of travel then it would have been like slamming on the front brake, but that obviously didn't happen. I think that the old guy riding the bike was just a bit confused, and perhaps he made a random statement not...

    Bike Crash

    I don't know why the old guy crashed. The story I was handed was that "he turned his wheel too far" but that doesn't look right to me. I didn't see the crash but I saw the guy laying in the gravel and I was about to go out to check on him, but then he got up. This happened during a cycling...

    Redneck Rescue

    It was pretty comical to me. The fist failed attempt made me chuckle a bit, while the repeated attempt and failure made me laugh. I would have liked to see how they finally got the truck up there. The pooch is a boy named Blue.

    Bike Drop

    I don't think toe clips or clipless pedals are to blame for the drop. His left foot came off the pedal just fine, but he planted his foot too far forward. I think it was a lazy stop and he just didn't do it right. Perhaps the gravel threw him off a bit as well. I've seen a trend toward fatter...
