Now the camera mount is very sturdy, and I went a year without using one a tether, but if you like to ski through the woods filled with deep powder, let me tell you: a safety strap is a good idea. It`s made from a 12` toy dog collar! All you do is slide the adjustment loop tightly around the camera mounting stud holder. A drop of glue keeps the le

One of the features of my condo is that I have private access to the attic over my unit, and there is a plywood floored storage area over part of it. And not just a little hatchway, either. Okay, it`s not entirely a ramp because it has a 39 ° slope of and you wouldn`t be able to walk up it so someone nailed down some 2x4 cleats. But it`s no staircase, either. As you can probably guess from ye olde cedar shakes at the top of the ramp, this was a roof at one point in time. Parts of my house are 145 years old, so there are a lot of oddities like this caused by many renovations over the years. The sheathing was a little suspect based on the several holes. Actually, I`m pretty sure it`s not sheathing. It doesn`t match the sheathing above, and it`s varnished. Who would varnish the ramp to their attic I suspect that...
